Going Deep

This week, we're happy to announce that we're adding DEEP SPACE NINE comics to our expanding slate of STAR TREK titles. DS9 has long been the most-requested new title fans have asked for since we started doing TREK comics a couple years back. The first DS9 series, "Fools Gold," is being solicited for December release. So it'll be available for pre-order in tomorrow's Previews.

A bigger announcement and interviews about the new series are in the works, but since word has already broken on some Web sites, I thought I'd show a bit more here. But first, the solicits for the first issue itself, coming from the team of writers Scott and David Tipton and artist Fabio Mantovani:

Written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton, art by Fabio Mantovani, covers by The Sharp Brothers. Variant covers by David Messina.

Captain Sisko and the crew of Deep Space Nine make their triumphant return to comics! When the station begins to be overrun by thieves, treasure-seekers, bounty-hunters and other assorted ne'er-do-wells, Major Kira and Constable Odo must find out why. Can they get to the bottom of it before the station's new visitors bring things to a boiling point?

Cover to issue #1 from the Sharp Brothers:

David Messina's issue 1 variant cover:

And a couple interior pages from artist Fabio Mantovani:
