IDW Publishing in April will launch Star Trek: Klingons: Blood Will Tell, a five-issue series looking at some of the most famous encounters between the United Federation of Planets and Klingon Empire from the Klingon perspective.

"With Star Trek, we're often presented tales from the Federation's point of view, but figured it was also time to give the other side in the 'two sides to every story' equation," IDW's Chris Ryall told The Continuum. "We know the Klingons aren't purely evil, so they must be convinced that what they're doing is right... right? But will that theory hold up in light of things like mass murder and other such Klingon events? This mini-series will explore that.

"Each issue looks at a different event, so amongst other such characters appearing in the series, fans can also expect to see... wait for it... Tribbles."

First up in Star Trek: Klingons: Blood Will Tell, written by Scott Tipton, with art by David Messina, an unsteady peace breaks out into full-scale war after a Klingon cruiser is destroyed by the Federation starship Enterprise.

The issue will come in a regular version and another printed in Klingon language. Every word balloon and caption will be translated into Klingon, courtesy of the Klingon Language Institute and the linguist responsible for developing the Klingon language, Marc Okrand.

"As for the reasoning behind a Klingon-language variant, well, what could be a better fit here?" Ryall said. "A sketch cover variant or something didn't seem appropriate here, not when folks at the Klingon Language Institute are able to help us present the issue in the native Klingon dialect -- accompanied by the English text of the original script, too. So now everyone that has spent time learning to speak or read Klingon can see if we're on top of our game."

The All-New Atom #7, the first of back-to-back issues drawn by Mike Norton, will arrive in stores this week from DC Comics.

"It was a blast," Norton said of his guest-artist stint. "They were the most difficult-yet-fun pages I've ever had to draw. There is some crazy stuff in those two issues.

"It was like skiing down a big hill. It scares the hell out of you, but it's fun."

Herešs how DC describes the issue, which was written by Gail Simone:

"The Atom meets a man who has some information regarding the Time Pool -- the problem is, he's being pursued by a rogue Linear Man! It's up to the Atom to save this man -- and the Time Pool itself."

Norton said he got the Atom gig because of his work on DC's Teen Titans Go! His editor on that book, Tom Palmer, showed his work to Atom editor Mike Carlin.

"I told them I'd love to do more," Norton said.

Norton's next work likely will be the second Loaded Bible project from Image Comics.

Kabuki creator David Mack has written the sixth installment of Zenescope Entertainment's Se7en, the series that focuses on the backstory of John Doe, the villain played by Kevin Spacey in the New Line Cinema film.

Each issue in the series tackles one of the seven deadly sins, with Mack writing Envy.

"Writing from the POV of a psychopath came incredibly natural to me," Mack said.

The artist for Envy is Leif Jones, who Mack said "I've been meaning to work with for 10 years."

Here's how Zenescope describes the issue:

"John Doe is at a crossroads as he struggles to remember his past, the man he was before his 'rebirth.' But he knows he is losing grip on the memories of his former life. Doubt creeps into his mind: why was he chosen? Is this the right path? This doubt fuels his need to remember the man he used to be. Consuming him enough that he begins to envy the life of the young detective that is on his trail. But when his own sin triggers an incredible revelation, the true meaning of his work is finally realized. It has all come together as his purpose finally becomes crystal clear. His work will be studied, puzzled over and followed. Forever."

Mack's issue of Se7en is scheduled for a March release.
