Star Trek: Mirror Images is a five-part comic miniseries published by IDW Publishing starting in June 2008, the omnibus was be released in February 2009. The series was written by Scott and David Tipton and illustrated by David Messina. The series includes a four-part Star Trek: The Original Series story, and a single issue Star Trek: The Next Generation story, both set in the mirror universe.
The main story of the series is a four-part TOS story depicting events in the mirror universe prior to the episode "Mirror, Mirror"; showing the rise of James T. Kirk through his plots to unseat Captain Christopher Pike from command of the ISS Enterprise. The third issue of the series was a flash-forward to the 24th century, showing how Jean-Luc Picard took command of the ISS Starbreaker.
The series was originally announced as a four-part series, and was to have Chris Ryall as a third writer. Additionally their were plans for a second Mirror Images miniseries set in the TNG era, this eventually evolved into the Myriad Universes miniseries The Last Generation and the addition of a fifth issue to this miniseries, putting a TNG flash-forward midway through the otherwise TOS story.
There was a one month gap in the release of the series, pushing the third issue back to a September release, and bumping back the release of the rest of the series, with the fifth issue finally out in November.
The German omnibus of the series published by Cross Cult features new cover art by David Messina.
Prior to the publication of the series, author Keith R.A. DeCandido suggested efforts were being made between IDW and Pocket Books to keep the series consistent with the prose mirror universe fiction recently released by the Pocket.  However the short story "The Greater Good" published a few months after the completion of this series gives a contradictory account of Kirk's rise to captaincy.
