I agree -- those fotonovels are dead on the the page.  These pages have a lot more energy.

I love seeing a "Byrne layout" done with stills from the show. Yep, it looks much, much cooler than the old "fotonovels." -- And NO rectangular word balloons! Yes!

I'm not crazy about these perfectly elliptical balloons either, truth to tell, but I'm somewhat limited in that respect.

The rectangular balloon in the Photonovels made them read like pages from MAD -- not a bad thing in context, but this was not the context!

Speaking of the balloons, I was looking at these pages on my iPhone last night. I noticed that they need to be slightly smaller to be a perfect fit on the screen, but I also found myself wondering if I could safely reduce the font size. I made it large for easy reading on a monitor screen, but what does the Forum think? Could I shrink a couple of points and still be legible?

Yes, I think that if the font was a tad smaller, it would still be legible.

I agree. I think shrinking the font would work great.

Here's another little experiment. Again, my obsession with Robert Culp appearing on STAR TREK. To the many eyes of the Forum, how does this bit of manipulation work, visually?

Think I could successfully make Culp a "guest star" in my "lost episode"?

Looks pretty good to me. I think you could pull it off!

The other question, of course, is whether "guest stars" would be distracting. Meaning people who had not actually appeared on STAR TREK. I could see using John Colicos' Kor as a returning villain, for instance…

…but would someone like Culp just jump off the page?

(Poor Scotty! Just not his week!)

The Culp panel you posted is certainly good enough for my eye. The way you're breaking these scenes down into panels is engaging enough that a little Photoshoppery shouldn't be all that noticeable to the reader.

I think the Robert Culp picture looks fine. I bet that most people who looked at it (and was not overly familiar with the show) would not realize it was a Photoshop job.

Robert Culp looks fine.

Maybe Jack Lord will finally get his chance to captain a starship now.

I did searches on Google and in the Forum, but can't find much. I'll bite...what is the Robert Culp/Star Trek connection/non-connection (other than he was married to a woman that was in one episode)?
