Madefire unveil Star Trek Harlan Ellison’s The City on the Edge of Forever motion book + Transformers Robots in Disguise #4

Joining Clive Barker’s Next Testament and DC Comics’ Infinite Crisis on the Madefire roster this week is one of Star Trek’s most famous episodes, Harlan Ellison’s The City On The Edge of Tomorrow, converted into a motion book courtesy of IDW Publishing. We’ve got a fantastic preview of this unique Trek comic for you to enjoy. There’s also a first look at Transformers Robots in Disguise #4.

Star Trek: The Original Series episode “City on the Edge of Forever” is regarded by many (including a TV Guide poll of the “100 Best TV Episodes of All Time”) as the greatest Star Trek episode of all time, but there’s much more to the story than fans saw on TV. Harlan Ellison’s original teleplay for “City on the Edge of Forever” was modified before the episode was filmed, but now, at long last, fans will be able to enjoy his original teleplay in the form of an all-new miniseries: Star Trek: Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever: The Original Teleplay.

Ellison’s original teleplay won both the prestigious Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation as well as the Writer’s Guild of America’s Award for Most Outstanding Teleplay.
