IDW is returning to the 24th century but from the Mirror Universe point of view. On Star Trek Day a special introductory issue for their 13-issue Star Trek: The Mirror War series arrives and we have a preview.
The Mirror War brings back writers Scott and David Tipton, who penned IDW’s three previous TNG-era Mirror Universe miniseries. The series artist is Carlos Nieto, who also made the cover for issue #0 arriving on Wednesday. Starting with issue #1, J.K. Woodward will be providing cover artwork for every issue and there will also be retailer variant covers.
Star Trek: The Mirror War #0
Get caught up with the Mirror Enterprise-D before its crew-helmed by Jean-Luc Picard-faces new threats and challenges in the upcoming Mirror War event! Following the failure of the attempt to steal ships from the Prime Universe, Picard and the Mirror Crew are called back to Earth to report to the Emperor personally – so long as they can survive the trip!
Issue 0 Available Wednesday
Mirror War #1 coming in October
Next month the rest of the series kicks off with issue #1.
Synopsis for issue 1:
Return to the Mirror Universe of The Next Generation with this brand-new series from writers David & Scott Tipton, where familiar faces and exciting new surprises await around every corner!
To conquer the Mirror Universe, Captain Picard must first seize control of the ship-building planet of Faundori! The only problem? Faundori is inside Klingon-Cardassian Alliance territory…
Year Five wrapping up
There are still two more issues of IDW’s exploration of Kirk’s final year to go. The final issue of Star Trek: Year Five arrives later this month, with a special epilogue issue arriving in October.
Their journey has taken them to the edge of the known universe and beyond. They’ve faced down impossible odds, conquered incredible enemies, and now, here in the shadow of home, their mission will come to an end… and nothing will ever be the same. The crew of the Enterprise will put it all on the line in the grand finale of Star Trek: Year Five.
The five-year mission may be over, but now it’s time for the next adventure to begin. Join the crew of the Enterprise for the end of an old chapter and the beginning of a new. This special, oversized epilogue from the entire Year Five writing team bridges the gap between the end of the five-year mission and the beginning of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
