Will the same guy who did the cover illustrate the story?
If you check out previous IDW comics, you'll see which titles have tended to use the internal artist as the cover artist. It's quite often different. Quite a few issues have had multiple covers, too.

Re: First details of nuKhan prequel comic

I loved Greg's books. I mean really, really loved. But I would be interested in seeing something else. Also while clandestine approach was perfectly suited for novels it would very hard to be effective in comics. Particularity a short miniseries. While the visuals of open warfare can look great in comic books.

Re: First details of nuKhan prequel comic

I suppose the big question is who will the Khan of the Eugenics War look like - Benedict or Ricardo? I suspect it will be the former based on the cover image.

It's a tie in to STID & as you say we've seen the cover for #1 - I don't think there's a question at all; Benedict.

This comic is being release 3 months too LATE! Should have been out a month before the release of the STID movie!

Why?

All six issues in one month?

Except that the subtitle of the comic is a major spoiler for the movie.

No more so than the Nero comic should have been out before XI's release.

I was implying that certain secret shouldn't have been a secret in the first place.

Cue the inevitable questions about whether the comics are canon and overwrite the novels' version of the Eugenics Wars (answer: no).
Its a different continuity entirely !

Which does ask the question how a timeline that branched when Nero travelled back in time to the 23rd century has a different 20th century...

Re: First details of nuKhan prequel comic

^The point is, canonically it's supposed to be the same continuity prior to 2233. However, different tie-ins, since they are not canonical, have frequently presented contradictory interpretations of events that supposedly took place in the same original timeline. That's all they are -- interpretations. The comic and the novel don't represent different 20th-century histories, they represent different authors' speculations about what Trek's 20th century may have been like.

The same way a 75-year journey in Voyager at warp 9.975 would have taken the TOS Enterprise three weeks or less at warp 8.4

Re: First details of nuKhan prequel comic

What an utterly generic cover. Minus out the branding and you could slap just about any title on that book. Jack Ryan, Bourne? Etc, etc.

I don't have high hopes for this one, but I'll probably give it a look through out of curiosity. I'm surprised they're even touching on the Eugenics Wars because of the inherent weirdness of them as per their temporal setting.

Maybe they'll shock us with a surprise revelation, though. I still note no one actually uses Khan's full name except for Spock Prime which felt like a backdoor out for the writers incase they changed their mind about his identity.
