Harlan Ellison's classic Star Trek tale "City on the Edge of Forever" is getting its complete and original adaption in a five-issue series from IDW more than four decades after it aired on television.

He says the adaptation stays true to his original telling and intent, and it expands fully on that which appeared on the television series in 1967 to its full form.

IDW, he says, has taken his script and is doing the series "line by line" with writers Scott and David Tipton and art by J.K. Woodward.

It's an appropriate medium because Ellison says comics are similar to the way he writes scripts: panel by panel, shot by shot.

He says, "I run the best movies in the world in the theater of my mind."
