IDW resume new Star Trek comic announcements with October solicitations

IDW's October solicitations have been revealed, which include one brand new title, plus an omnibus - This is the first newly announced book since the covid-induce pause and subsequent schedule shuffle; with the backlog of covid-delayed titles currently filling the schedule being caught up on by October. Continue below for the details:

Star Trek: Year Five #16
Written by Jody Houser, with art by Silvia Califano.
Election season is in full swing across the Federation, and even though it seems ridiculous, Harry Mudd is rising to the top of the polls! The crew of the Enterprise suspects that there's more to Mudd's game than just wanting to do his civic duty, and their investigation will uncover a rot that threatens the entire Federation from the inside. The final voyages of the U.S.S. Enterprise continue with the amazing crew of writer Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy) and artist Silvia Califano (The X-Files: Case Files)!
The book will be offered in this series' usual two covers. Either the main Stephen Thompson, featuring a Mudd presidential rally, or a retail incentive travel poster by JJ Lendl, quite delightfully for Andoria.



Artist Silvia Califano has also shared a little tease of work in progress, presumably from this story arc, featuring a delightfully diverse Federation audience:


Also in this round of solicitations, but in advance, for December release is:

Too Long a Sacrifice omnibus
Written by Scott and David Tipton, with art by Greg Scott
Return to DS9 as death casts its shadow on the space station in this murder-mystery.

Constable Odo searches for truth amid a web of treachery and lies but everyone on the Promanade has a motive for this murder, be it vengeance, justice, or old-fashioned greed. With the murderer on the loose, the inhabitants of Deep Space 9 start to divide into factions, made even worse when the Ferengi government gets involved. Further complicating the issue, conflict between Constable Odo and the Federation's hand-picked criminal investigator threatens to derail the investigation itself!
At the moment this is reusing Ricardo Drumond's issue one cover art from the series.
