Galaxy Quest Getting Sequel Comic Book
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.28.2014

If you're a fan of Star Trek--or just science fiction in general--you've probably seen Galaxy Quest. The 1999 party of Gene Roddenberry's famous space series is one of the better parodies out there in any genre and particularly in sci-fi. While we've not been able to get a live-action sequel to date, we are now at least getting a follow-up in comic book form.

IDW announced at Comic-Con that they are producing an ongoing Galaxy Quest series, which will be written by Erik Burnham and illustrated by Nacho Arranz. Burnham spoke about the series with CBR, saying, "Galaxy Quest answers the question of 'What if a group of aliens saw a Star Trek-like show, assumed it was real, and recruited the cast to help them on a mission?' Like Ghostbusters, it's a comedy but the world is played straight. The humor comes from the people and their reactions, not the situations they face." The series will feature all the major characters from the film, even Justin Long's starstruck fanboy, Brandon."

He talked about the book's direction as well, saying, "At the end of their movie, Tim Allen's character, Jason, used the Omega 13 device to rewind time 13 seconds and undo the catastrophic death of his crew. (Um... sorry for the 15 year-old spoilers!) Messing with time. Maybe that affected more than the ship. If it was more widespread, sure, most folks would just have a powerful case of deja vu. But what if it changed something else? That's what we're starting with. They're the reason a new race -- called the Drythans -- seek them out and say, 'You screwed something up. Fix it.'"

The first issue will be released in early 2015.
