I'm surprised no one's mentioned this, but if its on another thread please delete this one.  However, TrekWeb.com links Chris Ryall's IDW blog which states that Mr. Byrne's next IDW title is Leonard McCoy, Frontier Doctor which is set between the TV series and ST:TMP. He also posted a page from the episode "Balance of Terror" that Mr. Byrne pencilled.

This is the "Mystery Project" to which I have been referring for a while. It's finally scheduled (March 2010) and I turned in the completed first issue yesterday.

Here's a taste:

As you can probably tell, this 4 issue mini is set just before the first TREK movie.

Wow! Such great likenesses of William Shatner and the late DeForest Kelley.  I, for one, cannot wait for this.

Shatner is traced from photographs (tho I think I did a somewhat better job of "blending" here than previously), but in the case of Kelley, since he was going to be in so many panels, I had to find "my own" face for Dr. McCoy. The beard helps, of course!

(To derail the Idiot Squad before they even get started, no, this does not mean I am using myself as the model. It means I developed a face that looks enough like Kelley/McCoy to pass, but does not require constant reference to photos.)

Neat! I like the fact that ship is named the Joanna.

I've gotta say, JB, your attempt to find "your" McCoy is a lot better than a lot of other recent artist's attempts.

I like the technology on the ship interior as well, particularly the computer displays -- looks like it could be a transitional period between the displays of the original series and the displays of the movies.

I concur wholeheartedly.

And Kirk's hairstyle from that era has been captured perfectly. (I remember that when Marvel had the rights from 1979 to 1981, the artists often drew the TMP-era Kirk with his TOS era hairstyle, which would drive me up the walls.)

Here again is where I shout out a big THANKS to TREKCore.com. Those almost frame-by-frame screenshots make it SO much easier to find the angle and expression (or close to, anyway) I need for the traced shots.

Fantastic!

JB's use of main characters/likenesses from TOS has been escalating for a while now. Glad to see that he's finally playing with some of the top-tier characters (Spock's appearance in CREW was a nice warm-up). Looking forward to this!

Looks great. Really captures the TMP uniforms style.  I really liked Kirk's admiral uniform from the movie, thought it looked nice (except the belt buckle thing).  JB has a way of finding what really works for costumes or uniforms and making them look great  (i.e. Alan Scott Green Lantern).
I'm thinking this ought to be good fun, after all when McCoy returned to Starfleet he was indeed more cantankerous than his usual style. Ought to be fun to see what happened!
