Here's a sneekpeek at a page from the new mini I mentioned a few days
back. Nothing here that can Spoil anything, I don't think. Spare yourselves
the aggravation and don't try to guess who's behind the blur. I won't tell
you whether you're right or wrong! (And I WILL delete the posts of anyone
who makes a guess. After all, if enough of you swing at that ball, someone
is bound to hit it. Don't want the cat getting out of the bag simply by a
process of elimination!)



Don't look for this to be scheduled any time real soon. Technically I am
working on the ANGEL Halloween project this week, but since I am writing
myself a full script to work from for that, I'm doing other things to keep the
art part of my brain working.

I'll second that "hmmmm"!

Doesn't look very Starfleet-ish. And didn't JB say that this new mini takes place in-between TOS and TMP?

Very intriguing indeed.  I have to say I never really got into the Star Trek comics much before JB started on them.  Now I am "jonesing" for the next issues by him to come out.

That's quite possibly the coolest looking "going into warp" effect I've ever seen drawn.

Damn!

That is brilliant!  I love the vertigo effect I get from scrolling down the page.  Thanks for sharing.

JB I'm curious, what goes into your decision to work from a full script on a project as opposed to any other method you might use?

Thanks as always.

On the ANGEL project I have only one regular sized issue, but I have a lot of
story to tell. So I want to make sure everything is paced and placed to best
advantage -- thus, a full script.

(This is an advantage only if the person writing the script is actually able to
think in pictures. Something you'd think would be an automatic
requirement when writing comics, and yet. . . )

That makes sense. Thanks for the reply.

Has CREW been more of a "loose" scripting process for you? 

I ask because the first two issues really flow so naturally that to me, a civilian, it would seem like there must have been a very detailed script behind the story.

Thanks again, I can't wait for this new series!

With CREW, as with any multi-issue series, I have a slight advantage when it
comes to pacing out significant character developments. If I find I "don't
have time" in a particular issue, because of other pressing concerns, there is
always the next issue.

Of course, one has to be careful! On FANTASTIC FOUR I found myself
shunting my Julie Angel subplot into the next issue, and then the next, and
then the next . . . . . until she simply faded away!

Could this possibly be the third Romulan series that JB mentioned?
