Year Five #20: The Raptor's Wings, part 1 preview

Out this week is issue twenty(ad) of IDW's Star Trek: Year Five(ad) comic series, which is the first half of a new story arc, The Raptor's Wings, written by Brandon Easton with art by Silvia Califano, and colour from DC Alonso. This chapter sees Spock transported back to the Time of Awakening, giving us a look at Mad Max-esque ancient Vulcan, and a fresh take on Vulcan and Romulan history. Half way in, this is already a highlight of a generally excellent series! 

As ever the book is offered in two different covers. The main cover(ad) by Stephen Thompson gives us Spock standing beneath those raptor's wings. Alternatively, the rarer retail incentive cover(ad) by JJ Lendl is a retro movie style poster also featuring Spock, this time within the silhouette of the raptor as seen on the Romulan Bird of Prey.

Continue below to check out both 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: Ebay(ad), Things From Another World(ad), Amazon(ad). If you'd rather wait for the collected edition, this arc will also be part of the final omnibus book for the series, Experienced in Loss(ad), which is due out in November.
