IDW Publishing and DC Comics Boldly Go Into ‘Star Trek / Green Lantern: The Spectrum War’
  |  @   |  

I don’t know why I never thought of a Star Trek and Green Lantern crossover before, but it makes a lot of sense when you think about it. IDW Publishing, DC Comics, and CBS Consumer Products made the announcement this weekend at WonderCon 2015 that they are teaming up to release Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War this July. The six-issue mini-series will be written by Mike Johnson with art by Angel Hernandez.

The Spectrum War will feature Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps going into the world of Star Trek‘s 23rd Century, joining forces with the Federation after some of the Federation’s greatest enemies find themselves in possession of some Power Rings.

Klingons with Yellow Fear Rings? Looks like it. Ferengi with an Orange Greed Ring? Makes sense to me, but that’s just speculation on my part.

“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.

Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War #1 will be out in July and will feature covers by Gabriel Rodriguez, Francesco Francavilla, Elsa Charretier, and Garry Brown.
