Before Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters and totally blows your mind, IDW will be releasing a comic series titled Countdown to Darkness which will serve as the official prequel to the upcoming blockbuster! You can find it at your local comic shop or order it at TFAW.com. Star Trek Countdown to Darkness hits stands today!! Here’s your official synopsis!
In the months since the defeat of the Romulan terrorist Nero, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise have embarked on a voyage of discovery that has taken them across the galaxy. They have explored strange new worlds, new civilizations… And encountered grave new threats to the security of the Federation. None greater than the one they face now.
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!
