Comics: IDW and DC Team-Up For “Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War”

IDW Publishing, CBS Consumer Products, and DC Entertainment announced yesterday at WonderCon another crossover event. The Green Lantern and Star Trek will collide this summer in a six-part miniseries, ‘Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War,’ and will be written by veteran Star Trek comic writer Mike Johnson with art by Angel Hernandez.

In a press release, IDW President and COO Greg Goldstein said:

“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.”

Official description:

“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.”

‘Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War #1’ will be available in stores and online in July and have covers from Gabriel Rodriguez, Francesco Francavilla, Elsa Charretier, and Garry Brown.
