IDW's July Star Trek comics, with loads of covers!

July is a big month for Star Trek comics, with the new Green Lantern crossover series headlining IDW's solicitations for the month, plus new issues of the nuTrek ongoing and New Visions series. Continue below for details of them all, and a lot of covers!

Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War #1
Written by Mike Johnson, with art by Angel Hernandez.
Two iconic franchises collide for the blockbuster crossover event of 2015! The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise meets the Green Lantern Corps for the first time in an all-new adventure that spans the cosmos! Don't miss the thrilling first chapter of THE SPECTRUM WAR, as Kirk and Spock make a most unusual discovery on a lost world... igniting events that will change the fate of empires!
There are at least seven different covers for this issue! The regular covers are by Gabriel Rodriguez (check out the pencil art for this on the artist's Tumblr), Francesco Francavilla, and Elsa Charretier:




There's also the subscription variant cover by Garry Brown, this will apparently be one of a series continuing throughout the six-issue series, building up one continuous image form the six subscription covers.


And there will also be a blank sketch cover (no image of that, not that there would be much to see!).

On top of those, Dynamic Forces have an exclusive cover by Jae Lee, which Things From Another World have listed available in both regular and black and white versions:



Star Trek (nuTrek ongoing) #47: 5 Year Mission - The Tholian Webs, part 2
Written by Mike Johnson, with art by Rachael Stott.
It's the mind-bending conclusion of “The Tholian Webs!” One crewmember makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the Enterprise in this all-new re-imagining of a classic Star Trek episode!
The main cover for this issue is by Joe Corroney:


After a long run of photo-covers for the subscription covers in this series, we finally get some original, and particularly delightful, artwork for this issue, by Derek Charm. The cover is in the style of EC Comics, and is one of twelve similarly retro-styled covers available for various IDW titles in July - They have release a checklist if you want to track them all down. You can see a detail image from this cover on IDW's Tumblr.


New Visions #7: 1971/4860.2
By John Byrne.
Captain Kirk sets off alone on a mission that will carry him 200 years into his past… but he won’t be alone for long—Gary Seven returns!
