[TV] IDW Publishing to Release Comic Based on Classic Star Trek Episode
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.06.2014



IDW Publishing has announced via an official press release that they will be releasing a new Star Trek comic miniseries entitled Star Trek: Harlan Ellison's City on the Edge of Forever The Original Teleplay. The five-issue series will directly adapt famed sci-fi author Harlan Ellisan's original longer, more ambitious take on the Star Trek original series episodes "The City on the Edge of Forever."

Ellison's teleplay will be adapted for comic form by writers Scott Tipton and David Tipton and artist J.K. Woodward. Juan Ortiz will be illustrating the cover, and variant covers will be drawn by Paul Shipper.

Speaking on the announcement, IDW Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall stated: "Presenting Harlan Ellison's brilliant original script for 'City on the Edge...' has been a goal of ours since IDW first began publishing Star Trek comics in 2007. The episode justifies its position atop 'best Star Trek episodes' lists but even it ain't nuthin' compared to what Ellison did in his original teleplay. This is truly going to be a Star Trek adventure unlike any other, even to fans who have that beloved episode memorized."

Harlan Ellison commented on the announcement: "It was a superlative joy of my long life to have worked with Leonard Nimoy, who became my friend, and many others at Star Trek; and an equally heart-happy joy to be working with J.K. and the Tipton Bros. and Chris Ryall on this long-awaited visual of my (humbly, I say it) brilliant original 'City...'"

The first issue for the miniseries will be shipped in June 2014. You can check out a cover image for the comic below.
