When I read that nine-page preview, am I the only one that feels like...

But they also reprise Kirk's closing monologue within the comic, so that's where the setting jumps.
That's because there is no one year gap.

Kirk had been in a coma for two weeks, that's all we know. The "nearly one year ago" line in Kirk's speech is referring to the events of the first movie, he then continues talking about how Pike made him Captain and how he took his oath and only now he understood what that really meant.

Edit: I know it wouldn't make sense to honor the people who died in the first movie, but that's the way I understood this. I might be wrong, though ...
I disagree. They had time to refit the Enterprise and there is no obvious damage to San Francisco. I would think they'd need more than two weeks to clean up after the Vengeance crash.

In my opinion, there is a one-year gap between the crash and the relaunch of the Enterprise.
