Discovery: Succession #1 preview

Out this week is the first issue of the latest Star Trek: Discovery comic, Succession. The book picks up the story in the mirror universe after the events of season one, and even in just issue one makes some remarkably bold moves to move the mirror universe story forward. It's one of the best first issues of a Star Trek comic series I can recall in some time! The book is written by Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson, with art by Angel Hernandez.

The book is available in four different covers. Cover A is by Angel Hernandez (coloured by Esther Sanz), featuring mirror-Burnham amongst a militaristic Terran display. Cover B, a photo-cover, also features Burnham. Retail incentive cover A is by George Caltsoudas, and again features Burnham, this time joined by Captain Killy and Emperor Georgiou, and finally retail incentive cover B is the latest in a series of covers spanning Discovery comic releases, featuring ships by Declan Shalvey (colours by Jordie Bellaire), this time featuring the ISS Discovery.

Continue below to check out all the covers, and a five-page preview.

You can continue reading this story by picking up a copy at your local comic book shop, or from online retailers like these: Amazon, Things From Another World, Forbidden PlanetiTunes. Alternatively, if you can wait until November, you'll be able to get the omnibus book for the series, which will also include the recent Discovery Annual.
