STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Tie-In Books, Comics Announced

Next year, fans will be able to delve deeper into the world of Star Trek: Discovery with a comic book and novel series that was announced by Kirsten Beyer on Saturday at the Star Trek Mission: New York convention.

Star Trek: Discovery books and comics coming from Simon & Schuster and IDW

Revealed during the Discovery writers panel that also included Nicholas Meyer, Beyer announced that CBS Consumer Products will be working with IDW and Simon & Schuster on the tie-in project. Beyer, who is both on Bryan Fuller’s Discovery writing staff and has written multiple installments of the Voyager relaunch book series, will be the liaison between CBS, IDW and Simon & Schuster. She’ll be working with David Mack (Star Trek: Destiny) and Mike Johnson (Star Trek: Boldly Go).

Both the novels and comics are said to be timed with the release of the new series that will hit CBS All Access in January.
