Can't wait for Into Darkness? Then grab this prequel comic series to the big Trek sequel. It's Spocky!

Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness #1

It's been a long wait for the sequel to the J.J. Abrams revamp of Star Trek, but this year will finally give us Star Trek: Into Darkness. To get you jazzed for the movie, though, you can check into "The Official Comic Prequel" from IDW, called Countdown to Darkness.

This will get you back up to speed with the young, sexy versions of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and the rest of the crew of the Starship Apple Store – er, Enterprise, since it's been a while since we've checked in with them.

Here's the introductory blurb:

"In the months since the defeat of the Romulan terrorist Nero, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise have embarked on a voyage of discovery that has taken them across the galaxy. They have explored strange new worlds, new civilizations… and encountered grave new threats to the security of the Federation. None greater than the one they face now."

 

Check out this preview of Star Trek: Countdown To Darkness #1, scripted by Mike Johnson from a story by Johnson and Roberto Orci, and featuring art from David Messina.
