Last weekend, Ben posted one of the variant covers for IDW’s upcoming Doctor Who/Star Trek crossover comic. A few more details have since surfaced, including our first look at the official cover art, courtesy of StarTrek.com. Set for release this May, Assimilation2 #1 will be the first of eight and will feature The Doctor and his Series 6 companions, Amy & Rory, teaming with Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-D to take on deadly alliance between the Borg Collective and their newest ally, the Cybermen.
Suffice to say, I’m speechless. I honestly don’t think it can get any better than that. Scott and David Tipton penned the narrative along with David Lee, and Fallen Angel‘s J.K. Woodward will be providing the art throughout. The cover art was a collaboration between Woodward and artist David Messina. Variant covers will include a rare wrap-around photo cover, as well as the previously posted variant by artist extraordinaire, and friend of the site, Joe Corroney. If you’re looking to pick up an individual print of Joe’s cover or any other pieces he’s worked on over the years, check out his website for more information.
