Tomorrow IDW releases a special one-shot comic focused on Star Trek’s most iconic adversary, Khan Noonien Singh, except this time it is from the Mirror Universe perspective. TrekMovie will have a full review of the comic soon, but for today you can check out a preview of the first five pages.
Khan, from another point of view
Star Trek Hells Mirror is penned J.M. DeMatteis, a veteran writer for both DC and Marvel. His last contribution to Star Trek was in the final Marvel Star Trek comic in 1982. The art for the new Khan comic is by Matthew Dow Smith, with Candice Han doing the coloring.
Synopsis for Star Trek Hells Mirror:
Legendary writer J.M. DeMatteis returns to Star Trek for the first time in nearly 40 years! And it’ll be well worth the wait, as he tackles two of the franchise’s most popular concepts: Khan Noonien Singh and the Mirror Universe!
The regular cover was done by artist Matthew Dow Smith.
There is also a retailer incentive variant cover by George Caltsoudas.
The 47-page comic Star Trek Hells Mirror will be available on Wednesday, August 25th. You can pre-order the comic at TFAW for $3.99. You can also pre-order the digital version at Amazon for $4.24.

what the hell happened to Sulu?Not wearing red and more importantly also not Asian!
Yeah, Sulu sorts looks like Sulu in the first panell he appears in, but that 2nd panel…oy! Hopefully it’s just that one panel he looks weird in.
Wow. A comic set in the Mirror Universe. How original.
Although, as long as Khan’s name isn’t John Harrison, it’ll still be better than Star Trek Into Darkness! (Would be hard to do worse)
Learn to be a writer and do your own original Trek work.
Then watch as others rip into it for being unoriginal or ‘not true star Trek’.
Well, that is the nature of art. Any art. You’re going to face criticism either way.
Ultimateworf, you seem to think you made a point.
Although I will be one of the last Trekkies to defend Star Trek Into Darkness (I should never be able to quote a movie while I am watching said movie for the first time, with scenes that were never in the trailer), but there is one “movie” (I am loathe to call it that, despite it being released into the theaters) that is much much much much much worse: the P.O.S. that was released between First Contact and Nemesis.
But a good guy Khan… whoa. That’s crazy. It would be interesting to see how Khan from the Prime Universe would react to the Mirror Universe.
