Year Five #4 covers and excerpts, and other Star trek comics updates

Out this week is issue four in IDW's Star Trek Year Five comic series, which is part two of the return to Sigma Iota II (of A Piece of the Action) story, Communications Breakdown. This story arc comes from writer Brandon Easton, with art by Martin Coccolo.

The book is offered in two covers, from the now familiar cover artists for the series: The main cover, featuring a striking "Your Country Needs You"-esque Spock poster, is by Stephen Thompson (coloured by Charlie Kirchoff). The retail incentive is a retro travel poster design by J.J. Lendl. Continue below to check out a five page preview.


Stephen Thompson has tweeted his art for the cover (pre-colouring), including an isolated version of the Spock poster!






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, Forbidden Planet, iTunes, Barnes and Noble.

Meanwhile artist Silvia Califano has been working on the 5th and 6th issues of the series, has recently shared another look at artwork in progress on their Instagram:


And finally, from a different corner of the 23rd century, George Caltsoudas recently shared an awesome new Discovery cover, presumably his retail incentive cover for Aftermath #1.
