IDW's long-running Star Trek series will be relaunched as Star Trek: Boldly Go to coincide with the events of this week's Star Trek Beyond movie. Series writer Mike Johnson and artist Tony Shasteen will continue on this new series, which will pick up directly after the third movie.
“What better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek?” asked newly-promoted IDW editor Sarah Gaydos. “And what better team to do it with? Mike and Tony are poised to take the series in such an exciting direction. I can't wait to introduce the world to these new characters... as well as some interesting friends and foes from the past.”
Star Trek: Boldly Go is scheduled to debut in October. The current Star Trek series ends with August's #60.
