Star Trek/Green Lantern Comic Crossover

1 min read

STGL-040615

A new comic book crossover will feature both Star Trek and The Green Lantern.

The IDW Publishing crossover, titled Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War, will consist of six issues.

“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,” said Greg Goldstein, IDW President and COO. “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.”

The Trek characters are the crew from the rebooted Star Trek movies.

Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War will be written by Mike Johnson, and feature art from Angel Hernandez. Covers (both regular and variant) will come courtesy of Gabriel Rodriguez, Francesco Francavilla, Elsa Charretier, Garry Brown, Declan Shalvey and Marc Laming.

Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War will debut in July.

  1. Well, I guess Simon Pegg will have to go back to the drawing board for the next Trek

  2. Personally, I’m waiting for the Star Trek/Peter Pan crossover comic. Makes as much sense as any of these other concepts . . . .

  3. In issue #3, Kirk bangs Wendy while Scotty captures Tinkerbell and converts her into a new power source for the warp engines. Captain Hook teams up with the Klingons to defeat his old enemies but is fatally distracted by a ticking chronometer somewhere off the starboard bow of Kor’s ship….

  4. To be fair, this isn’t any different than when Star Trek crossed over with the X-Men in the 90’s. Of course that was a dumb crossover as much as this one, but what are you going to do? (Not buy the damn thing, that’s what!)

    PS: For the trillionth time since JJ took things over: Star Trek is NOT a group of comic book super heroes! Stop treating them like they are!
