This weekend, from July 31st – August 3rd, acclaimed creator Harlan Ellison will join IDW’s Editor-in-Chief and CCO, Chris Ryall, at the official Star Trek Convention at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. Celebrating the rich universe of Star Trek, Ellison will be featured throughout the weekend on diverse panels, and on hand for a number of signings.
Ellison’s award-winning Star Trek episode, “The City on the Edge of Forever” is a lauded sci-fi masterpiece; cited by many as the greatest episode in the franchises’ long history. Recently adapted to comics by IDW, “The City On The Edge of Forever” rapidly sold out of the first issue, and received a second print, in stores soon! Adapted by Star Trek veterans Scott and David Tipton, with stunning art by J.K. Woodward, the comic series is bringing the complete, unedited script by Ellison to fans, as it was originally intended.
During the weekend, fans will have the opportunity to hear Ellison speak on a number of Q&A panels. The first of which will take place on Thursday, the 31st at 5:20 PM in the main theatre. On Friday, the 1st at 1:20 PM, also in the main theatre, Grace Lee Whitney, the actress who played Janice Rand on the classic series will host a Q&A session, while Walter Koenig, best known for his role as Chekov on the original series, will host a final Q&A with Ellison on Sunday the 3rd at 10:15 AM, in the main theatre.
Ellison and Ryall will be signing and meeting fans alongside “The City on the Edge of Forever” cover artist, Juan Ortiz, during the rest of the convention at Harlan and IDW’s booth, B26.
Don’t miss out on this very special occasion to meet a formative creator at this spotlight convention!
