Source: TrekWeb

Yesterday at the New York Comic Con, IDW Comics announced that a four-issue comic prequel to next year's "Star Trek Into Darkness" will be released in early 2013. The series will be entitled, "Star Trek Countdown to Darkness", with Mike Johnson and David Sessons producing the comics. This series is intended as a direct lead-in companion to the story in "Star Trek Into Darkness".
[Cosmicbooknews.com] has posted a captured image of the first issue cover of "Star Trek Countdown to Darkness", which was briefly shown at IDW's Comic Con panel.

Cumberbatch?

You know, to me that looks strangely like Shatner on the cover. But yeah, I'd say you're correct and that it's meant to be Cumberbatch's character. The glowing eyes tell me it's not Khan.

Oh, and "Countdown to Darkness"? Worst title ever. It's just so lame.

Hmmm. He looks like Lokai from Let That Be Your Last Battlefield. ;)

By the way, Ralph, I had to drive into Manhattan yesterday (my daughter had a college interview), and as I emerged from the Lincoln Tunnel near the Javits Convention Center, I was impeded by a bunch of comic con-goers in full superhero, sci-fi, or anime costume. You weren't one of those people, were you?

No, Jackson_Roykirk. I live in Brazil. Although in the carnival people use fantasy here. But I do not like. I think I'm normal :lol:

Gustavo over at Trekweb says the individual on the cover of the comic prequel is Gary Mitchell. It does look like him.from the other comic he was in.

Maybe, but I can't comment on whether it looks like Gary Mitchell from the other comics, because I can't see enough detail.

My comment about it looking like Lokai from Let That Be Your Last Battlefield was mostly a joke, and only based on the half white/half black look of the face.

Allyn Gibson reckons he saw the cover in person the other day and it's Kirk:

From what I read, Orci denied that Cumberbatch was Gary Mitchell. He said that Karl Urban was testing hypospray himself. But Cumberbatch's character is canon.

if the cover is Kirk/Pine, he has an evil eye.

If its suppose to be Kirk, they need to get a better artist. :eek:

Lol....well maybe they are remaking The Enemy Within but the transporter accident happens when they are in the great barrier. That could explain the evil eye on Kirk.....if it is him!!!

many people are betting on Gary Mitchell. If he is Gary Mitchell, how would they explain in a few minutes star trek ongoing #1 and #2 to people doesnīt know the history?

In my opinion, Khan should not be discarded yet.

Re: Comic Prequel: Star Trek Countdown to Darkness
 
Maybe if it is Mitchell, Countdown to Darkness will just be a 4-issue undoing of Star Trek Ongoing #1 and #2:p

Re: Comic Prequel: Star Trek Countdown to Darkness
 
Ok, KingDaniel. But how would they explain it in a film? In ST2009 Spock Prime explained about Nero by vulcan mind meld and many people didnīt understand. Unless it has many flashbacks.
