Maybe I’m showing off my own fanboy nature a little bit too much here, but: Yes please. I’m not a massive Trekkie/Trekker, but I really liked the JJ Abrams reboot, and tend to like IDW’s Trek comics for the most part (Especially underrated, weirdly enough, are the John Byrne series. Who knew?), so the idea of a continuation of the movie written by Mike Johnson under the careful eye of movie screenwriter Bob Orci seems like a very good one indeed, even if I’m unsure about the idea of the storylines adapting episodes of the original television series.
It does make me wonder, though: Is Star Trek the oldest comics adaptation outside of Disney still running? There were plenty of cross-media comics before Trek, of course, but does Trek outlast all of them? I’m trying to work out if things like The Lone Ranger or Warlord of Mars count, considering their lengthy hiatuses, unlike Trek, which has been fairly continuously published in comics since, when, the late 1960s? Help me out in the comments here, please: What comic adaptations are older than Trek, but still being published?
