IDW Publishing Sets Course For Star Trek
Las Vegas Convention
San Diego, CA (August 1, 2017) – Creation Entertainment’s 16th Annual Las Vegas Star Trek Convention kicks off this week and IDW Publishing will be representing with special guests who work on the official line of Star Trek comic books – longtime Star Trek writer Mike Johnson, Group Editor Sarah Gaydos, and artist J.K. Woodward.
The convention will run from August 2-6, but con-goers can catch Mike, J.K., and Sarah on Wednesday and Thursday, featured on select panels to discover more about the current status, and future, of IDW's publishing programs for all things Star Trek. That includes the recently announced “I.D.I.C.” 6-part story arc that begins in Star Trek: Boldly Go #13, the highly publicized Star Trek: The Next Generation: Mirror Broken miniseries, which depicts a “Mirror Universe” spin on the TNG crew (with painted art by Woodward), as well as the launch of the Star Trek: Discovery ongoing comic book which ties-in directly to the eagerly anticipated TV series.

Debuting in October, both “I.D.I.C.” and Discovery were recently teased at Comic-Con International, with even more details to unveil in Vegas. “I.D.I.C.” (Infinite Diversity (in) Infinite Combinations) explores the Vulcan philosophy that celebrates diversity in all its forms and will be written by Mike Johnson. The Discovery comic will be co-written by Johnson and Discovery staff writer Kristen Beyer.
