Green Lantern / Star Trek Comic Crossover Announced


Green Lantern is going boldly where no man has gone before as today at WonderCon, IDW Publishing and DC Comics have announced a Green Lantern and Star Trek comic book crossover.

Star Trek / Green Lantern: The Spectrum War will be a six issue mini-series hitting this July written by Mike Johnson with art by Angel Hernandez.

The series is described as: "Set in Star Trek’s 23rd Century, the balance of the universe will be tested when the Green Lantern Corps' Power Rings come into the possession of certain Star Trek characters while a dark and powerful evil looms around every corner. Only the combined power of the Green Lantern Corps and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil's might."

“We’ve looked forward to bringing these two iconic universes together for a long time,” said Greg Goldstein, IDW President and COO. “Star Trek and Green Lantern both share so many of the same science-fiction adventure themes and ideals, that a galaxy-spanning crossover like this is simply…logical.”

“Green Lantern is one of the most popular, storied characters in the history of comic books and a modern DC Comics icon. An entire universe of Green Lanterns and other supporting characters have grown out from his original adventures in the 1940’s, and this series really showcases the intergalactic scope of the franchise,” said Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics.
