Marc Guggenheim and Oleg Chudakov pit Captain Kirk and crew against their doppelgängers.

The new Image Comics series follows an orphaned, amnesiac high school student who holds the fate of the entire universe in his hands.
Image Comics has announced a new series written and drawn by Drew Craig, an “up and coming” creator, as the press release puts it, whose name you’ll likely hear a lot in the future.
Craig is the creator of a whole universe that’s coming to life inside the pages of The Savage Strength of Starstorm, which kicks off in May.
“It’s a love letter, and homage to all the great stories, characters and creators I loved in my adolescence, and my hope is that in doing so, I’ve created something new, and that Starstorm and his world will excite and captivate readers the way those stories captivated me growing up,” Craig said.
