Here is a video showing that Abrams guest-editing is more than just putting his name on the issue.
In addition, WIRED has put up the entire JJ Abrams essay "On the Magic of Mystery". It is very much worth the read.

The entire Star Trek "When Worlds Collide" comic written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (with art by Paul Pope) is now online at WIRED.com. [NOTE: although comic says 'by Paul Pope & K/O', TrekMovie has confirmed K/O = Kurtzman & Orci]
