Star Trek: Year Five #3 covers and preview

Out this week is the third issue of IDW's new TOS comic series, Year Five. While continuing some threads from the opening two-parter, this book kicks of a new arc, featuring a return to Sigma Iota II (of A Piece of the Action), giving us a new take on the aftermath of the crew's original visit there a few years earlier in the TV series. With a new story the creative team has been switched up, with Brandon Easton taking on writing duties and art from Martin Coccolo.

This book is offered in three covers. The main cover comes from Stephen Thompson and colourist Charlie Kirchoff, and features a particularly fed-up Doctor McCoy, along with Kirk and Spock, witnessing the new look Sigma Iota II. The same trio feature on J.J. Lendl's retro poster style retail incentive cover for the issue, which would appear to give us a title for the issue/story, Communication Breakdown!. There's also a photo cover available, featuring Kirk, as a Montreal Comic Con exclusive. Continue below to check out the covers, and a five page preview.

You can continue reading the rest of the book by picking up a copy at your local comic book shop, or from online retailers like these: AmazonThings From Another World.
