Do we know for sure issue 21 is set after the movie?
That is the case according to startrek.com

If that cover means anything for the crew status, I for one am glad we don't seem to have any casualties.
If anything else has changed in the Trek universe besides that, noone can tell.

Hmm... it could just be a generic pic.

It's certainly nothing that deserves too much attention or analysis.

Since it looks to be a photo cover, I doubt we can read anything into it. The photos used don't even have to be from the new film.

Re: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS 5-page preview

I wonder if they'll ever use illustrated covers instead of the photos?

Comic book covers are among the most notoriously misleading things in any form of media. Means nothing.

Given how cautious the filmmakers have been about letting any spoilers slip, they surely wouldn't give anything away about the movie in a cover released before the movie came out. So they'd probably use a generic image like this even if there were some major change. It doesn't rule anything out.

I hate photo covers. They're lazy and look cheap.

I think there have been a few illustrated variant covers.

Agree 100%. Most of the new Trek stuff (mainly the comics) have been recycling the same images over and over and over again.

The Ongoing series is mostly photo covers, but IDW has illustrated covers for their other Trek lines, like Countdown to Darkness, Braga's TNG Hive series and the TNG/Doctor Who crossover Assimilation-Squared.
