Star Trek/Green Lantern Crossover Coming

This summer, Hal Jordan will meet James T. Kirk.

CBS Consumer Products, IDW Publishing and DC Comics have announced Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War, a six-issue comic book crossover from writer Mike Johnson (Star Trek, Supergirl) and penciller Angel Hernandez (Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse, Arrow).

The series is getting first-issue variant covers from Gabriel Rodriguez, Francesco Francavilla, Elsa Charretier and Garry Brown, along with future covers by Declan Shalvey and Marc Laming. Check out Rodriguez’s and Francavilla’s Star Trek/Green Lantern: Spectrum War #1 covers below:
