Beam me up, Dr. Zaius...
IGN reports that IDW Publishing has announced that it will partner with BOOM! Studios for a Star Trek/Planet of the Apes crossover comic, which IDW will publish. This is the first time that BOOM! has partnered with another publisher. Star Trek is licensed by CBS Consumer Products while Planet of the Apes is licensed by 20th Century Fox. It will see the original crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise meet Taylor, Nova and the titular Apes. The creative team includes Star Trek writers Scott and David Tipton (Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation 2), with interior art and covers by Rachael Stott.
David Tipton said: "With the Klingons secretly backing a renegade gorilla general in a coup for control of Ape City, Captain Kirk finds himself in the uncomfortable position of having to help out Dr. Zaius' orangutans. Taylor won't be happy with that!"
