See The Mirror Enterprise-D Crew In Action In Preview Of ‘Star Trek: The Mirror War’ #0

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.

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!

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.

Issue 24

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.

Issue 25

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.

I got the graphic novel which combines all the previous issues into one book.
So I guess this is the continuation of that.
It’s been really good so far, so I’m looking forward to it.
Too bad there’s no MU TNG movie …. 😢
