IDW promises more Star Trek for 2011
After “Star Trek: Khan Ruling in Hell #4″ (released next week), the two issues of “Star Trek Infestation” in February are IDW’s only confirmed Star Trek comics for 2011. The publisher has recently announced their solicitations for March 2011 and besides a trade paperback collection of last year’s “Star Trek: Captain’s Log”, there are no new Star Trek titles. That means that March 2011 will be the first month without any Star Trek comic titles since IDW started publishing Trek back in January 2007.
TrekMovie checked in with IDW’s Marketing Director Anna Maria White who assured us that regardless of there being no Trek titles in March, the company remains committed to Star Trek. In an email White stated:
IDW is not moving away from Star Trek. We’ve included it in our company-wide event, INFESTATION, and are working on some big things to start in the spring. There are several Star Trek books in the works.
White also confirmed that within the "several Star Trek books", IDW is planning comics in both the traditional "prime" Star Trek universe and the new movie universe. TrekMovie will continue to update on any new titles coming from IDW.
It has been awfully silent on the Trek front at IDW. Nice to hear some news that we'll be getting some new titles. I'm glad to hear there will be some books based on the new movie universe too.
