Comics consistent with the Litverse?

Hey everyone. So I've been steadily working my way through the Litverse over the past couple of years, but now that I'm close to getting caught up with the novels I've begun wondering which Trek comics there are out there that are consistent with the Litverse. I'm pretty sure some Litverse characters have appeared in the comics, and vice versa, but I don't know which. Would any of you be willing to help? I'd love to track at least some of these down and add them to my collection. Thanks!

The New Frontier comics written by PAD (I think there was just a one-shot and a mini-series) are consistent with the New Frontier novels written by PAD.

The DS9/TNG crossover Divided We Fall features Vaughn and Shar; I think the events of the comic are mentioned in Trill: Unjoined.

There's also Perchance to Dream, which introduces Ra'ch B'ullhy and the Damiani, who show up in the novel 'verse; the events of the comic series are referenced more than once.

The Gorn Crisis is also referenced quite frequently.

On a lesser note, a group introduced in Alien Spotlight: Andorians became part of the Andorian political ecosystem in the novels, so quite possibly that comic is included. (I've got it on my Chronological run-through list).

There was a DS9 comic - N Zone or something? - that was part of the DS9 relaunch post season 7.

Re: Comics consistent with the Litverse?

Good stuff so far guys, thanks. I'm currently making a list so I can do some shopping.

I totally forgot Peter David did a New Frontier comic, that's definitely going on my list. Are Early Voyages and Starfleet Academy consistent with the Litverse? And if I remember right, Nogura appeared in some comics back in the early '90s, but I'm not sure if he's been in any more recent ones.

Re: Comics consistent with the Litverse?

As I've mentioned before, I borrowed the name of Gary Seven's alien sponsors, "The Aegis," from a DC Comics TREK comic by Howard Weinstein.

Seemed silly to invent a new name when the comics had already established a perfectly good one.

The comics Keith DeCandido has written for IDW, Alien Spotlight: Klingons and Captain's Log: Jellico, are consistent with the litverse. Conversely, some characters introduced in Klingons: Blood Will Tell, also from IDW, have been mentioned in prose.

Not entirely, though both have introduced characters that were later adopted by the novels (Chief Engineer Moves With Burning Grace and Pava ek'Noor sh'Aqabaa, respectively -- plus Seekers has mentioned the Lirin species introduced in EV). Early Voyages conflicts with Burning Dreams on Captain Pike's parentage and backstory, but it has some storylines that don't conflict with the novels. I referenced its version of the Rigel VII incident in Tower of Babel. As for Academy, I don't recall too many of its details, but I have the impression that it does have some conflicts with the novels. (I keep meaning to reread it.)

However, a few details seem to have entered novel 'verse continuity Broad Strokes-style. In Mission Gamma: Cathedral, Nog references (in internal monologue) Talos IV as a planet he's visited. This does seem to fit with dialogue in Q and A which all but confirms that the quarantine has to some extent been lifted, which might be taken, should we wish, as evidence of the Talosian contact with Nog and his buddies?

Of course, if we don't accept any of the Academy plots in the broadest sense, the Talos IV detail is rather bizarre.

Although Pike's Chief Engineer tends to shift from book to book. As far as I know, Caitlin Barry from VULCAN'S GLORY and THE RIFT is the only one who has appeared in two novels so far.

N-Vector, I believe. It introduces Tiras Jast, the Bolian Starfleet officer who Vaughn replaced in Avatar after her death. I kinda wish more had been done with her. Though I don't think much else from that comic has been referenced - at one point, I believe O'Brien is briefly brought back to DS9 for concern of him having something to do with sabotage?

I think a lot of the comics from the later publishers, some of the later era DC comics, the Marvel comics, the Wildstorm, and at least some of the IDW comics are, if not entirely compatible, then at least something that could be referenced or included, at least in broad strokes.

Wasn't the ban lifted in Burning Dreams, though? Sometime around 2320, I think? If it was still in effect at the time of the comic, that would be a conflict.

But Grace's role in the novelverse is as the chief engineer of the SCE ship Lovell. Although Burning Dreams does establish him as having been Pike's engineer in the past.

Note though, that Klingons: Blood Will Tell gives Arne Darvin's real name as Gralmek and depicts him as naturally born HemQuch while Myriad Universes - Honor in the Night names him Krek and states that he was born a QuchHa'.

Wildstorm's comics in general mesh well with the novelverse.

Re: Comics consistent with the Litverse?

^Well, yeah -- we've already established there are comics that have lent characters and ideas to the novels despite having conflicts with them.

Still, most of Blood Will Tell was narrated in flashback by various characters. Maybe some of their accounts were less accurate or truthful than others.

Re: Comics consistent with the Litverse?

Copy/Pasted from post 10 of "Charting the Novelverse"...

DC Comics first TOS series used Diane Duane's "Rihannsu-verse" characters, and the character Bernie/Kobry appeared in TNG: Strike Zone.
DC Comics second TOS series introduced the character Sara Tuchinsky, who appeared in TOS: The Rift (as "Tooch") and in Mere Anarchy:The Blood-Dimmed Tide.
DC Comics TNG comics had one issue with Gilaad Ben Zoma of the Stargazer series.
Marvel Comics Early Voyages introduced the character Moves-With-Burning-Grace who later appeared SCE: Where Time Stands Still and TOS: Burning Dreams.
Marvel Comics DS9 series introduced Etaana Kol, a Bajoran security officer who has been used several times in the DS9 lit.
Marvel Comics Starfleet Academy introduced the character of Pava Ek'noor sh'Aqabaa, who later became a member of the crew of Titan. SA's Omega Squad was mentioned by name in DS9: Mission Gamma: Cathedral.
Wildstorm comics DS9: N-Vector and TNG/DS9: Divided We Fall both crossed directly into the DS9 fiction.
Wildstorm comics NF: Double Time is apart of the New Frontier continuity.
Wildstorm comics The Gorn Crisis by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta establishes backstory for both Nannietta Bacco (Articles of the Federation et al.) and the Gorn for Destiny and The Typhon Pact.
Wildstorm comics Perchance to Dream by Keith R.A DeCandido established the Damiano, seen in A Time for War, A Time for Peace and in New Frontier: No Limits.
Wildstorm comics Enter the Wolves by A.C. Crispen and Howard Weinstein was referenced in The Art of the Impossible.
IDW comics Andorian Spotlight alluded to the Andorian genders established the DS9 lit.
IDW comics NF: Turnaround is a part of the New Frontier continuity.
IDW comics TNG: Myriad Universes: Star Trek: The Last Generation was a tie in with the Myriad Universes series.
