‘Star Trek’ and ‘Doctor Who’: Picard and Time Lord vs. CyberBorg

Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise are striking an alliance with The Doctor and his TARDIS-traveling companions in a comic series from IDW –”Star Trek TNG/Doctor Who: Assimilation2.”

In the eight-part comic, the two transatlantic titans of television are teaming up against a villain pairing that threatens to destroy the galaxy: Cybermen and the Borg.
The series is co-written by Scott and David Tipton (who helmed “Star Trek: Infestation,” which follows a zombie epidemic in a Star Fleet colony) and Tony Lee, the longtime “Doctor Who” writer.
Here’s an exclusive first look at J.K. Woodward’s (“Fallen Angel“) cover for issue #4, which hits comic-book shops in August. Also, take a peek at the variant covers by Francesco Francavilla, the Italian artist who was nominated for an Eisner Award for his work on “Black Panther” and “Lone Ranger.” Francavilla is self-professed Whovian who creates a poster for each new “Doctor Who” episode.
