In an email received this morning, Chris Ryall, head honcho at IDW, jokes that we might as well just go ahead and publish a monthly book with this title.

His reason for this whimsy? I just pitched another TREK idea, which IDW has green-lit.

So, for those keeping track, that means the months ahead hold what's left of the first ASSIGNMENT: EARTH series, more ROMULANS, a title-not-yet-revealed 5 issue miniseries, another A:E mini, and now this 2-parter. Assuming I work on them in more or less that order, that means the one I pitched most recently won't hit my board for about a year!

I call that Job Security!

JB, you're going to do what several friends haven't been able to for years - turn me into a TREK fan.

Congrats John. I'm looking forward to a full year (or more) of "John Byrne's STAR TREK"

I'm reading Star Trek comics? Why am I reading Star Trek comics? This is all very confusing.

It would be much better for my peace of my mind if they were Buffy or Angel comics. Or even Doctor Who comics.

Damn. Star Trek comics it is, then.

This sounds very appealing to me. I can't wait.

What's next? John Byrne's Star Wars? If I couldn't afford to buy that series of books I'd pawn my guitar! :-)

John Byrne's Star Trek has a nice ring to it. Have to admit I still haven't caight any, but I'm going for the already solicited TPBs with the Trek stuff.

Btw, JB, as aside, seeing IDW as your new home and all... any news on the Citizen Zero project? Said the curious Swede.

This is just great! I'd just about given up on comics other than the Mignola-verse over at Dark Horse. Now we have the Byrne-Trek-verse at IDW. Thanks so much.

... any news on the Citizen Zero project?

••

This needs to be a FAQ, methinks!

As I mentioned when I announced CZ as a work-in-progress, I am taking a
very different approach to producing that storyline than I have in the past. I
want to "let the story tell itself", which means it comes out of my pencil in
sudden bursts, then drips, then surges, then pauses. And since I want at
least six issue done before I let any of them out in public, CITIZEN ZERO will
basically happen when it happens.

There is still sufficient trekkie awe in me that even seeing the words in print
is something of a thrill. Like that trade paperback Marvel put out a few
years back, with FF stories, that had the cover credits listing Stan Lee, Jack
Kirby and John Byrne.

It just don't get no better!

"IDW has green-lighted" means it's been cleared with the ST script police?

IDW green-lighting a project is step one. No point in submitting plots or
scripts to Paramount if the project hasn't been green-lit by the publisher!
