Year Five #18: On the Death of a Friend part 1 preview

Out this week was the eighteenth issue(ad) of IDW's TOS comic maxiseries Year Five(ad), and the first part of a new story-arc in the series, On the Death of a Friend, which continues the alarmingly prescient run of story in the series (following the recent demagogic presidential election story), with a plague-based medical mystery! 

This new story arc is written by Jim McCann, with art by Angel Hernandez, and colours by Fran Gamboa. After an issue off the main cover team returns, with Stephen Thompson (coloured by Charlie Kirchoff) delivering the beautiful virus filled Doctor McCoy main cover(ad). Or alternatively there's a rarer retail incentive(ad) design by JJ Lendl, also featuring McCoy, along with Isis hinting at other elements of the story, in a retro poster design.

Continue below to check out the covers, plus 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: Ebay(ad)Things From Another World(ad), Forbidden Planet(ad), Amazon(ad), This arc will also be part of the third omnibus in the series, Weaker Than Man(ad), which is due out in May 2021, if you'd rather wait for the collected edition.
