Through the Mirror #1 preview

Out this week is the first issue of Through the Mirror, this month's weekly release TNG mirror universe comic book miniseries, and sequel to last year's Mirror Broken series.

This book, and each issue of the series, is split in two, with the headline story seeing the TNG mirror universe crew infiltrate the prime reality, and a second story set back in the mirror universe. Both stories are written by Scott and David Tipton, picking up where they left things off with Mirror Broken, and the artist from that series, J.K. Woodward, is also illustrating the secondary story. The main story has a different artist for each issue, with Marcus To and colourist Brittany Peer kicking things off this issue (in a change to the originally announced artist, Chris Johnson)

This first issue is available in no less than six covers, with Picard the focus of nearly all of them. The A cover by J.K. Woodward is the first part of a massive single vertical design that will join all five A covers for the series; this same design, uncoloured, will also be available as a convention exclusive. The B cover featuring Worf (who is also prominent in the story in this issue) is by Marcus To, coloured by Jason Lewis. There's a retail incentive photo-cover with regular Picard, and another retail incentive cover by Peter McKinstry featuring mirror-Picard; these will both be ongoing series of covers for other issues of the series too. A further retail incentive cover is by Marc Laming, coloured again by Jason Lewis, and features a confrontation of both mirror and prime Picards and Rikers.

Continue below to check out all those 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 Planet, Barnes and NobleiTunes. Alternatively, the omnibus book for the series is available for pre-order, if you can wait until October.

The rest of the series will continue throughout this month, and then you've only got to wait until July, when the third miniseries in this mirror-TNG continuity, Terra Incognita, is due to start!
