IDW Publishing has announced the Star Trek: Khan prequel comic.
Star Trek veterans Mike Johnson and Claudia Balboni will tackle the six-issue miniseries with support from Star Trek Into Darkness writer Roberto Orci.
The series will focus on Benedict Cumberbatch's villain and his history before this year's blockbuster.
"We're travelling back in time to show Khan's rise to power and give fans their first look at the legendary Eugenics Wars," said writer Johnson.
"As the series unfolds we will see the events that led to Khan leaving Earth aboard the Botany Bay, and then jump forward to witness his awakening in the future by Admiral Marcus."
"Much like the way the Star Trek: Countdown comic book and our follow-up Nero miniseries helped flesh out that character after the first Star Trek movie," said Chris Ryall, IDW's CCO and editor-in-chief, "Khan will add dimension and depth to this new iteration one of the most classic villains in all of Star Trek lore."
IDW also released the Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness prelude miniseries and publish the Star Trek ongoing title.
Star Trek: Khan will begin in October.
