Captain Saru comic preview

Our this week is IDW's latest Discovery comic, and their second one-shot based on the series, Captain Saru. As you might have guessed from that title, Saru is the central figure in this tale, set within the epilogue of season one's final episode, when Saru was briefly in command of the Discovery.

The book, like all the Discovery comics, is written by Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson, with Angel Hernandez on art duties for this issue. It is available in two covers with Hernandez also producing the retail incentive cover (coloured by J.L. Rio), while the more widely available A cover is by Paul Shipper.
