My favorite sci-fi franchise and my favorite comic hero are joining forces for a six-issue crossover series! On Saturday, IDW Publishing, CBS Consumer Products and DC Entertainment announced a planned crossover event called "Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War" starting this July. The six-part monthly mini-series and will be written by veteran Star Trek comic writer Mike Johnson with interior art by Angel Hernandez (Infinite Crisis: The Fight for the Multiverse, The Arrow).
Available in stores and online in July, Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War #1 will feature covers from Gabriel Rodriguez and Francesco Francavilla (seen here), as well as Elsa Charretier, and Garry Brown. The issues that follow will feature covers from an amazing lineup that includes Declan Shalvey, Marc Laming, and more!
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 Corp and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil’s might.
"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."
- –Greg Goldstein, IDW President and COO
"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."
- –Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics.
