IDW Publishing Boldly Goes East For New York Based Star Trek Convention
Star Trek: Mission New York kicks off today and IDW will be there with special guests in attendance, convention exclusives, and a can’t-miss panel.
The panel taking place on day one of the convention is:
IDW and the Wonder World of Trek Comics
September 2, 6:45 PM - 7:15 PM
Join IDW Publishing's Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall, Group Editor Sarah Gaydos, Trek comics scribe Mike Johnson, artist Derek Charm, and very special guest superstar artist John Byrne as they discuss the wonderful world of Trek comics, with a focus on John's incredible contributions, and the stellar Trek comics coming from IDW. Surprise guests, a major announcement, give-aways, Q&A - - don't miss it!
Not only will John Byrne be making a rare appearance at this week’s Star Trek convention, he will be signing copies of his Star Trek books for IDW Publishing at IDW booth #325. Fans can meet Byrne, Derek Charm, and Mike Johnson, and get their Star Trek books signed at the IDW booth this weekend as well as pick up IDW's Convention Variant of the Star Trek 50th Anniversary Cover Celebration. Please note that, in keeping with the theme of the convention, Byrne will only be signing his Star Trek works, including the brand-new New Visions Special “The Cage” photo-story.
IDW has commissioned a special triptych drawing by Star Trek artist J.K. Woodward chronicling the 50 years of Star Trek cast members and produced three variant covers. Each connecting cover is limited to only 250 copies. The first cover, of Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation, made its debut at the Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas and remaining copies will be available for sale at the IDW table during the convention at a cost of $10 per copy. The second cover featuring the cast of Deep Space Nine and Voyager will debut at this show and the final connecting variant will debut at the 2016 New York Comic Con.
