IDW To Launch 5-Week ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation Through the Mirror’ Series In May

IDW Publishing has announced what they have coming in May, including a number of Star Trek titles. The biggest thing is a special 5-week “event” coming straight from the Mirror Universe. There is also another issue from the second Discovery tie-in.

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through the Mirror 5-week event

Last year’s Star Trek: The Next Generation: Mirror Broken was a big hit and was even nominated for the Diamond Gem Comic Book of the Year Award. Now the same team behind that book are back in May with a 5-issue series that will be released over 5 weeks. The series is being written by Scott and David Tipton with art by J.K. Woodward and Chris Johnson. According to IDW, the new series “sets up a new and exciting chapter in the Star Trek: Next Generation universe” and they promise there is more to come this year.

Here is the official blurb:

Because you demanded it! Following up the smash-hit miniseries MIRROR BROKEN, the Mirror Universe Next Generation crew is looking for new worlds to conquer, and they’re crossing over to the Prime Star Trek Universe to find them!

Also in each issue: Just how did the Mirror Universe crew find their way to ours, and what does Emperor Spock have to do with it? Backup stories every issue illustrated by MIRROR BROKEN co-creator J.K. Woodward!

Each 32-page issue in the series will be priced at $3.99 and will come with four different covers (A cover by J.K. Woodward, B cover by various artists, variant cover by concept artist Peter McKinstry, and photo cover). You can see a selection of the available covers below.

Cool!

much better

Excellent.

I really regret we never got a TNG MU story. That and Voyager are the only shows to stay completely away from that story line. Still the comic series look and sound great though.

Yes, Voyager could have been particularly poignant if they’d have swapped places with an ISS Voyager that was stationed near Earth. The crew desperately want to see their loved ones, but instead are confronted with dark, violent house of mirrors versions.

They SHOULD’VE done a MU TNG movie ….
