have officially announced the Khan
, prequel comic, which will be six issues and start in October. Mike Johnson on the series:
We're traveling back in time to show Khan's rise to power and give fans their first look at the legendary Eugenics Wars. As the series unfolds we will see the events that led to Khan leaving Earth aboard the Botany Bay, and then jump forward to witness his awakening in the future by Admiral Marcus.
And the cover:
I'm really looking forward to seeing a bit more of the story of Khan and Marcus, and hopefully some more on the origins of the USS Vengeance. Less fussed about seeing another version of the Eugenics Wars, but can see it being appealing to nuTrek
focused fans that might not have come across the novels. Plus it should be fun to see
the Eugenics Wars.
