The upcoming "Star Trek Into Darkness" may not be opening in AMC Theatres until May 17, but there is good news for those of us who can't wait for the continued adventures of the new Starship Enterprise.
It is being reported that IDW will be publishing a four issue mini-series comic titled "Star Trek Countdown to Darkness" which will serve as a prequel that will lead directly into the start of the new movie.
Here is what IDW has to say about the series:
The countdown to the motion picture event of 2013 begins here, in this blockbuster 4-issue prequel mini-series that sets the stage for the upcoming STAR TREK film! Like the best-selling STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN in 2009, this all-new series leads directly into the next movie, with a story by STAR TREK writer/producer Roberto Orci and Mike Johnson (STAR TREK ongoing series), and drawn by the original STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN artist, David Messina! STAR TREK COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS is the can’t-miss lead-in to the new adventures of the Enterprise crew!
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller are all on board for the second installment in the cinematic franchise. J.J. Abrams directs from a script by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof.
