I just bought a copy of the upcoming New Visions issue 22 on Ebay. What I find a bit strange is that one of the problems this series suffered was that the sales weren't big yet the online comic store from which I buy these issues usually sells all the copies they are offering. (okay they just have ten issues but still)

They sell out, but do they up the order the next time?

Eh, that has pretty much remained ten copies per issue every time a new one is released.

Unfortunate I can't really ask the store people if the number of orders for New Visions actually increased as the series continued. (people requesting that the store increased their orders because they were to late with buying an issue online)

Edit: well I decided to take a chance and ask them any way, if they actually had to order more copies after having sold the batch they got during the release.

Edit 2: and I got an answer. The store in general sells all of the issues and had to increase its order.

As it's Wednesday in Australia, I've just read it on the commute home. All I'll say is that it's a perfect story for a week in which Harlan Ellison shuffled off this mortal coil.

I'm glad that we've gotten a "full series" of New Visions. Thanks to JB for bringing back the magic of the original series and keeping it fresh and relevant at the same time.

“An Unexpected Yesterday” is an excellent final chapter to this series, using elements from two of my favorite episodes to make a story that holds up completely on its own.

ASSIGNMENT: EARTH is a favorite JB series, so it is a real treat to see Gary Seven in action.  I really dig the design of the aliens in this one - you once again bring your knack for alien and ship designs into the TOS universe.  And it was cool to see alternate 21st century realities play out.

Thank you for what amounts to a wonderful “fourth season” to the show, JB - I think you successfully redeemed the show’s third season with a series of voyages worthy of Star Trek.

Bit of trivia: that con cover is the first STNV cover I didn't work on. IDW produced it in-house.

Are you happy with it yourself?
I have the feeling that you would have done more with such a project.

If Bill is happy with it, so am I. Tho I would probably not have used a third season image.

A small epiphany this morning: if we take STNV as the "fourth season", then the series would have begun circa September of 1969, and would be finishing in early 1970. So I have carried STAR TREK into a new decade!
