IDW to publish Doctor Who-Star Trek crossover
The SF show crossover many fans have longed for but has, until now, been the work of fan fiction alone, is finally about to happen officially for the first time - a Doctor Who meets Star Trek comic crossover.
Bleeding Cool has squirrelled out news of the upcoming crossover from IDW that will see the Eleventh Doctor and crew encounter the Captain Picard and team from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Due to be released in May, the crossover follows hot on the heels of IDW's Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes six issue mini series, which concludes next month.
This is the first time that the two TV science fiction franchises have officially crossed over in comics, although there have been several brief encounters between Doctor Who and other comic characters, including Marvel's Death's Head and Eagle's Dan Dare (in a strip for the 1980s charity Comic Relief Comic).
