Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover announced.

DC Comics and IDW Publishing have announced a Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover series.

Over the weekend at Wondercon, DC and IDW announced they will be releasing a Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover this July.

The six-part mini-series entitled Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War will feature Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corp along side the Abrams-verse Enterprise crew.

“Set in Star Trek’s 23rd Century, the balance of the universe will be tested when the Green Lantern Corps’ Power Rings come into the possession of certain Star Trek characters while a dark and powerful evil looms around every corner. Only the combined power of the Green Lantern Corps and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil’s might.”

Mike Johnson, who has previously worked on a number of Star Trek and DC comics, has been commissioned to write the mini-series. Artist Angel Hernadez will also be joining him on the project.

IDW President and COO, Greg Goldstein, told Comic Book Resources

“We’ve looked forward to bringing these two iconic universes together for a long time … Star Trek and Green Lantern both share so many of the same science-fiction adventure themes and ideals, that a galaxy-spanning crossover like this is simply… logical.”

    I don’t know. I think this is a bad idea. I remember reading the Star Trek/X-Men book from 20 years ago or whatever and it to this day is the worst book I ever read. These two worlds do not belong together.

      In my opinion, they can’t do worse than the Green Lantern stuff they are putting out now.
