There have been murmurings about this for a few days, but now it’s revealed to be true! IDW Comics have announced officially today that starting in May, there will be a new limited series entitled “Assimilation2” (or “Assimilation Squared”) that will see the Eleventh Doctor and the TARDIS crew teaming up with Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew to take on the collective threat of the Cybermen AND the Borg.
Writing the comic will be the combined efforts of Scott and David Tipton, who do the company’s Star Trek comic, and Tony Lee, longtime writer of the monthly Doctor Who book. Seems like they got the right people to try to make sense of these two seemingly very dissimilar worlds. But hey, the TARDIS can go anywhere, so why the hell not to the final frontier? Art for the series will be done by J.K. Woodward, whose work can be seen in IDW’s Fallen Angels series, among others. Get ready to have your favorite sci-fi worlds collide in May when “Assimilation2” #1 hits stores.
