"Star Trek" Meets The "Legion Of Superheroes"

IDW Publishing will 'crossover' with DC Comics, for the six-issue monthly series, "Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes", launching October 2011.

Written by Chris Roberson, the series is illustrated by Jeffrey and Philip Moy, with covers by Phil Jimenez . Variant covers will showcase art by Keith Giffen, Steve Lightle and Gabriel Rodriguez :

The egalitarian 'United Planets' in one universe and a 'United Federation of Planets' in another is now the 'Imperial Planets of Terra', a dark empire focused on war and conquest..."
