IDW's October Star Trek comics

IDW have announced their October releases, which include two new Star Trek comics, plus their latest omnibus book. Continue below for all the details:

Star Trek (ongoing) #50 - 5 Year Mission: TBA, Part 1
Written by Mike Johnson, with art by Tony Shasteen.
Don't miss this special anniversary issue that kicks off an epic new 3-part adventure! For the first time, the crew of the new movie franchise will meet its evil Mirror counterpart! It's Enterprise vs. Enterprise, Federation vs. the Terran Empire, with the fate of two universes at stake!
As previously announced, they are going to town with this issue to mark the fiftieth issue benchmark. There will be bonus content "including behind-the-scenes looks at the last 50 issues of Star Trek…with hints about where the series is going, and what IDW will be doing to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series in 2016!".

There will be four covers too! The main cover is Tony Shasteen wrap-around design, then there's also a subscription variant photo-cover, and blank cover (so you can get a bespoke design by an artist), and an "Artist's Edition" cover by Rachael Stott. Only two have been released so far:



Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War #4
Written by Mike Johnson, with art by Angel Hernandez.
The crossover event of 2015 continues here, as Starfleet and the Green Lantern Corps team up in the middle of a ring-powered galactic war! The evil Nekron has arrived in the Star Trek universe... with his eye on resurrecting the planet Vulcan itself! Don't miss out on the latest chapter of this franchise-spanning epic!
This one has three covers, the rather Gold Key-esque A cover by Marc Laming, a variant by J.K. Woodward, and the latest in Garry Brown's series of subscription variants (not previewed yet). You can see the artwork for both of the covers below, sans titles, on StarTrek.com report on these releases.



Gold Key Archives, Volume 4
Written by Arnold Drake, John David Warner, and Gerry Boudreau, with art by Alberto Giolitti and Sal Trapani.
Boldly going… where it all started! Presenting the first comic book adventures of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her crew! Fully remastered with new colors, volume 4 collects issues #19–24, including the stories "The Haunted Asteroid," "A World Gone Mad," "The Mummies of Heitus VII," "Siege in Superspace," "Child's Play," and "The Trial of Captain Kirk."
New cover art for this book is by Michael Stribling:
