The only thing better than a teen-aged Spock taking down an alien panther with an old-fashioned Vulcan nerve pinch is having the whole thing illustrated by Paul Pope.

The May issue of Wired magazine is guest-edited J.J. Abrams and, unsurprisingly, contains a healthy dose of Star Trek-related content — including a six-page Spock comic called “When Worlds Collide,” penned by screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and drawn by Pope.

According to, the comic features an aged Spock remembering the years his youth, from his panther-fighting days to his early time aboard the Enterprise.
