The Return of the Archons was a two-part comic story published by IDW Publishing in 2012, written by Mike Johnson, a loose adaptation of the original story of TOS episode: "The Return of the Archons" by Boris Sobelman. Adapting the story from the TOS series to a Kelvin timeline version, the two parts were the 9th and 10th issues of IDW's ongoing series of The Original Series comics.
Set after Vulcan's Vengeance, the fallout from the vendetta conspiracy results in the Enterprise being assigned on a mission to Beta III to recover the USS Archon. The crew is forced to defeat Landru, and also find out what Starfleet has been covering up.
