What's impressive is that it only took a week to get from "the fantasy ... of IDW asking me to do [this]" (June 18) to "The STAR TREK Powers That Be have approved this for publication!" (June 25). The wheels don't generally turn that fast. I guess they must've been really eager for a new Byrne project.
Even so, I wouldn't expect to see it on shelves before February. From October onward IDW will have two Star Trek
titles -- the ongoing series and the Into Darkness
-- and they know the comics market will only bear so much Star Trek
