Mirror Broken #5 preview

IDW's latest release brings to an end their current TNG mirror universe comic adventure, Mirror Broken. The fifth issue (yup, the series seems to have been cut down from the originally announced six, although it did have two bonus issues in addition to the main run) is as ever written by Scott and David Tipton, and illustrated by J.K. Woodward - This time bringing us some very impression space battles!

The book is available in three different covers, with the crew-on-the-bridge A cover by Woodward too. The B cover continues George Caltsoudas character portrait series, with Data. And there's also a retail incentive cover, this time by Rachael Stott, in which mirror-Picard seems to be punching his way through the cover itself! Continue below to check them out, plus a five page preview from the issue.








You can continue reading this story by picking up a copy at your local comic book shop, or from online retailers like these: AmazonThings From Another WorldForbidden PlanetiTunes. Or, if you can wait until March, you can catch up with the entire series in the omnibus book.

In one other bit of news from the series, IDW recently ran a Facebook live chat with Star Trek editor Sarah Gaydos, in which she noted they expect to announce more news on Broken Mirror, soon. Given the number of spin-offs based on this series already, I would not be at all surprised to see a follow-up series!

Speaking of which, a mirror universe event in the video game Star Trek Timelines has just got underway, featuring none other than mirror-Picard. The games spans all periods of Trek, which is how this blurb for the event makes any sort of sense!
The Terran Empire is on high alert. A mirror version of Captain Jean-Luc Picard has declared Emperor Spock unfit to rule the Empire. Together with Empress Sato, who has always schemed to reclaim the throne she once held, they are seeking to make an attempt on the Emperor’s life.
