Manifest Destiny #1 preview

Starting this week is a new four-part biweekly nuTrek comic miniseries, Manifest Destiny. Taking the slot that might otherwise be given to a movie prequel series (there isn't one for Beyond), this series brings us a new Klingon nemesis for Kirk and crew, Commander Sho'tokh. This action packed series is written by nuTrek regular Mike Johnson, and his occasional collaborator Ryan Parrott, with art by Angel Hernandez (returning to Trek after previously bringing us the Green Lantern crossover series).

The series is available in three different covers. The main one is by Angel Hernandez. Tony Shasteen gives us the subscription cover, inspired by Bob Peak's The Motion Picture poster (the first in a series of movie-poster inspired covers throughout the miniseries). A retailer incentive featuring Doctor McCoy is by Rachael Stott. On top of that, this first issue is also available in a Klingon language edition, which is also offered in either the main or subscription covers. Continue below for a five-page preview (in English).

You can continue reading this issue by picking up a copy at your local comic book shop, or from online retails like these:, Things From Another World, iTunes. The omnibus book for the series is also available to pre-order already if you would prefer to wait to read it all at once.

This looks pretty awesome. I went through a Star Trek phase years ago. Still have a love for it though. Posted some stuff on Whit's Blog a while back, some memes. Great post, thanks.
