IDW has announced that it will launch a five-shot Galaxy Quest miniseries, Galaxy Quest: Global Warning, in August.  The new series will be written by Scott Lobdell (Uncanny X-Men) and illustrated by Ilias Kyriazis. 


The 1999 film comedy, which starred Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver among others, told the story of the cast of a fictional Star Trek-like series, nearly 20 years later.  The comic series takes readers to the eve of a new TV series, Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues, when a world-threatening crisis requires the intervention of the series cast.
