This week IDW kicks off their first tie-in to the Paramount+ series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Titled The Illyrian Enigma, the new four-issue miniseries is set after the events of the season one finale and before the upcoming second season. The new miniseries is being written by Strange New Worlds co-executive producer Kirsten Beyer teaming up again with Trek comics veteran Mike Johnson (Picard-Stargazer, Discovery-Adventures in the 32nd Century, Light of Kahless). Art for the new miniseries is being done by Megan Levens (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Star Trek: The Mirror War-Troi).
We have a 5-page preview of issue 1 and all five covers. One of the covers (Cover C by Chris Fenoglio) teases the upcoming Lower Decks/Strange New Worlds crossover episode along with highlighting Captain Pike’s famous hair.
