Here's a sneak peek at a page from the second issue, showing both the
process I apply to finishing the page, and a double-barrel in-joke Chris
Ryall is allowing me to play with this issue. . .



Some of you may recall I have gone back and forth on which way is "up" on
this custom designed starship. Finally settled back on my original choice.

Your ship design reminds me of one of these rare Shark Rays....I like it!

Just as long as it doesn't look like a duck!

(I don't recall ever seeing a ray shark before, but now you've got me
wondering! Visually, I am a sponge, after all!)

Nice page! When I saw the thread title though, I got excited thinking that you were announcing that IDW had already ordered a second mini before the first ever comes out.

Could happen, Mike. It will depend, I suppose, on how much tolerance the
marketplace shows for me doing "sequels" in which I "fold back" on myself,
to cover different stories set in the same time periods (as I did with
GENERATIONS and plan to do with ASSIGNMENT EARTH). Where CREW ends,
it would be difficult to merely continue with the series without it losing its
small quote of individual identity, and simply becoming a parallel to TOS.

It's truly lovely to see you drawing this all out SF stuff, JB.

I know you've mentioned before that you every once in a while consider turning Hamilton's City at World's End into a comic... might that be a higher possibility with your current collaboration with IDW?
(and pardon the slight thread drift, the whole SF scene above just got to me, I guess)

Damn. I'm not getting the double-barrel in-joke.

That's what makes it an in-joke, Al!

British members will stand a better chance -- as well as those who read the
old Gold Key STAR TREK comics.

Are you finished with issue # 1, then, JB?

Anyway, I see what you were talking about previously. This series is keeping the look and feel of TOS, but it has a much bigger "budget". EVA scenes (and maybe even those snazzy spacesuits) would have been beyond the scope of what TOS was cabaple of depicting.

That's one barrel, but it only becomes an in-joke with the second. . . !
