IDW Publishing, DC Comics and CBS Consumer Projects have just announced that, this July, they will be boldly going where no one has gone before… in brightest day, in blackest night!
This summer, two iconic franchises will collide in Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War, a six-part miniseries from ‘Trek vet Mike Johnson featuring interior artwork from Angel Hernandez.
On the subject of the announcement, IDW President and COO Greg Goldstein said; “We’ve looked forward to bringing these two iconic universes together for a long time. Star Trek and Green Lantern both share so many of the same science-fiction adventure themes and ideals, that a galaxy-spanning crossover like this is simply…logical.”
“Green Lantern is one of the most popular, storied characters in the history of comic books and a modern DC Comics icon. An entire universe of Green Lanterns and other supporting characters have grown out from his original adventures in the 1940’s, and this series really showcases the intergalactic scope of the franchise,” added Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics.
Set in Star Trek’s 23rd Century, the balance of the universe will be tested when the Green Lantern Corps’ Power Rings come into the possession of certain Star Trek characters while a dark and powerful evil looms around every corner. Only the combined power of the Green Lantern Corps and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil’s might.
