IDW Publishing will release the first of a six-issue series, October 2013, titled "Star Trek: Khan", following the villain of "Star Trek Into Darkness", before the events of the film.
Written by Mike Johnson and illustrated by Claudia Balboni, the series will be overseen by "Star Trek: Into Darkness" screenwriter Roberto Orci.
"We're traveling back in time to show Khan's rise to power and give fans their first look at the legendary 'Eugenics Wars'," said series writer Johnson. "As the series unfolds we will see the events that led to Khan leaving Earth aboard the 'Botany Bay', then jump forward to witness his awakening in the future by 'Admiral Marcus'."
"Now that 'Into Darkness' is in theaters, fans reading the ongoing series from issue #1 will pick up on details, both specific and thematic, that set up the movie and the stories that follow it..."
