Today IDW announced the details on their next Star Trek: Discovery comic mini-series, which they teased at WonderCon last month.
Discovery’s Aftermath to explore Spock’s past with Michael Burnham
Titled Star Trek: Discovery – Aftermath, the third IDW mini-series tied to the CBS All Access series, will explore the repercussions of the second season finale. According to IDW’s announcement, the story will focus prominently on Spock. Here is how it describes the new series:
In the aftermath of the 2019 finale, everything in Discovery has changed, and as L’Rell and Pike try to negotiate a fragile peace, Spock finds himself grappling with the fallout from what happened with Michael Burnham—and the mysteries about her still left to unravel.
The three-issue series will share the same writing team as the previous two mini-series, with Discovery staff writer Kirsten Beyer and Trek comics vet Mike Johnson. Art will be provided by Tony Shasteen, who also worked on the previous two titles.
“The new series shows how Pike, Spock, L’Rell, and the rest of the cast deal with the fallout from the mind-blowing events of Season Two,” says Johnson. “And we couldn’t be happier that Tony Shasteen is beaming back onboard for this story!”
“To be able to follow up on the huge status-quo shift presented in that finale is a dream come true, especially with a team as talented as Kirsten, Mike, and Tony,” says editor Chase Marotz. “In terms of fitting into the broader universe presented in Discovery, this new series is perhaps our most essential yet, and I can’t wait for everybody to see what we’ve got in store for them.”
Arriving this summer
At WonderCon IDW editor Chase Marotz announced the series will kick off in August. Pre-orders should be available at your local comic retailers and online after August solicitations are released in the latter half of May.
