Welcome! This thread tells the story of how the NEW VISIONS series, published thru IDW, came into being. The first post, here, is a long, long way from that series being anything like real. Merely, as noted, a fannish indulgence on my part. For those who take an interest in the arcane procedures that lead to comicbook series coming into being, however -- well, read on!

----------------------------------------------

Strictly for my own amusement -- no other reason!

How far will I get before I lose interest, I wonder?

too funny!

Reminds me of the telenovels they did of Star Trek back in the 70s.

Now, you aren't quoting this from memory, are you, JB..?

Clever!  I particularly like the slow, 3-panel fade-in on the transporter effect, and giving McCoy two separate word balloons makes his line "By bribing them?" even funnier.

I'm all for seeing how the rest of this episode pans out, JB-style!

As a big fan of the short-lived series of fotonovels in the 70s, I love this!  Nicely laid out, the images well-chosen to show visual business like transporting down to M-113 while simultaneously doing Kirk's captain's log.

You probably know this, but just in case not, there are sites that have the entire transcripts of all the original TOS shows.  I refer to the them on occasion and they're generally pretty goodlink

Me too! It's like when I first got a peek at 'Crew' - it's a tad scary how natural a fit JB's style is with classic TREK!

Of course, the really spooky thing is just how much the original Enterprise crew (i.e., Pike, Number One, Boyce, etc.) look like 'JB-style characters' in real life! By which I mean, if ever I saw a group of real-life people who look like they'd been created and drawn by JB, it'd be the bridge crew from 'The Cage':

That's cool. I'd buy that. It'd make a good 79 issue run.

Way cool.

But, it just reminds me how I want new TREK comics from you!

Greg, Eric - agreed!

I'll say it again - JB's IDW TREK comics are one of the few spin-offs to properly capture the original TREK feel (to the point where 'Crew' felt akin to seeing some long-lost unproduced scripts from the show archives, made into comics!). It's a criminal shame that TPTB decided to focus on new movie spin-offs instead (half of which are just weak retellings of original TREK episodes) - here's hoping that someone in charge sees sense, and green-lights more GOOD Star Trek comics soon...
