by Phil Wheat

Eaglemoss Hero Collector, the designers, manufacturers and publishers of high-quality collectibles from across the many worlds of pop culture, has partnered with comics and graphic novel publisher IDW to issue the company’s first-ever variant comic cover, one that celebrates the line of highly detailed, precision crafted replicas for which they are best known under the license of CBS Consumer Products.

Debuting at New York Comic Con, which takes place on October 3rd – 6th 2019, these limited edition variants of IDW’s Star Trek: Year Five #6 will feature an exclusive photo cover depicting Hero Collector’s iconic XL Edition model of the fabled U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, shot by renowned starship photographer Nils Walter Khan. Limited to 1000 copies – featuring a brand new story by writer Jody Houser, with art by Silvia Califano, will be available exclusively at Hero Collector Booth #737 throughout the convention for the special price of $10 (while stocks last).

Hero Collector will also host a signing with writer Jody Houser, cover photographer Nils Walter Khan and special guests at 12noon on Sunday, October 6 at Booth #737. And more details about the company’s plans for Star Trek and beyond will be revealed at the Hero Collector panel on Thursday, October 3 from 11am-12noon in Room 1B03. Says Chris Thompson, Brand Manager, Hero Collector:

We’re big fans of what Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly, Jody Houser and the team are doing on Star Trek: Year Five, so it made sense to do our first ever exclusive cover with our friends at IDW as part of this epic run. Our ships look impressive at the best of times, but on the cover of a comic they really pop! It’s so exciting to make this happen.

Adds Chase Marotz, IDW’s Star Trek Editor:

I’m consistently amazed by the level of detail and authenticity Eaglemoss Hero Collector brings to each one of their ships. Getting to collaborate with them on this exclusive cover for our Year Five series has been fantastic, and I’m excited about the possibility of working even closer together in the future.
