“Star Trek: Countdown has been one of IDW’s most anticipated titles this year and I’m happy to make it available to as broad of an audience as we can,” said IDW Publishing’s CEO, Ted Adams.

Star Trek: Countdown is a must read for Star Trek fans of any kind, offering important details relating to the upcoming feature film. The story is presented by J.J. Abrams and plotted by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. It is written by Mike Johnson (Superman/Batman) and Tim Jones, and features stunning art by David Messina (Star Trek: Mirror Images).

“As a die-hard ‘Trekkie’ myself, I can’t tell you how excited we are to bring this series to Apple and Google’s mobile platforms,” said iVerse founder Michael Murphey. “The scripts by Tim Jones and Mike Johnson are fast paced and compelling, and the artwork by David Messina looks amazing on these devices.”
