Wonderful surprise. 

I have been consuming the series via trades from the very beginning (no distribution of individual issues in the local shops here in town, and I wanted it on paper not on screen), so I am looking forward to Volume 8 in January even more now.

Another great example of the overall potential of this particular storytelling format. How unfortunate the series came to such an abrupt halt.

It looked like one on this end, I wasn't expecting it the moment it happened. I thought it would go on.

And that was quite a while before the final issue came out. So, again, “abrupt”?

Finished the four pager, so now my TREK Time is officially at an end.

For now.

I've already been picking up the trades, so this short story is really just icing on the cake!

Volume 8 arrived yesterday, waiting for its weekend consummation. 

New Visions was the most original and interesting thing I have seen in years. I will miss the series.

Thank you John!

Nice!  I keep the originals single editions on the bookshelf as well - the binding looks good as a series.

Now he's back at IDW, Chris Ryall has been nudging me to do some more STAR TREK. Maybe even draw a miniseries.

Hmmmmm.......

That would be really cool, JB - I hope you find a title you would like to do!

If you still have stories to tell, I'd love to read them.

From the earliest days Chris Ryall and I were discussing a possible BALOK & BAILEY miniseries—tho that might be a bit too much off to the side.

JB have you ever considered or been approached to write a Star Trek novel? I hope you continue on w Star Trek in any form. Thanks

A few decades back, at the insistence of my then agent, I pitched two STAR TREK novels to whoever was publishing them at the time. The editor informed me that one of my ideas was already in development by another writer, and the other had been nixed by Paramount years earlier.

Later, the editor boasted that he had “rejected two John Byrne pitches,” leaving me to wonder how either qualified as a “rejection,” since he was not in a position to accept them.

(The one that was already in development, the return of Garry Mitchell, didn’t happen, so I did it as what became the first issue of NEW VISIONS.)

If I could have any JB Star Trek comic, it would probably be a newly created ship and crew in the TOS era.  It could be a series of mini-series or specials featuring that ship/crew and would allow maximum toy box access and maximum freedom at the same time.

I'd be interested in seeing those pitches.

Well, you’ve seen one, as noted, published.

The other—the one forbidden by Paramount—was my explanation of the lumpy Klingons, “The Face of Fear”. (Boy, there’s one I wish had STAYED forbidden!)

I'd buy the BALOK & BAILEY mini!
Would love to see a JB drawn Balok's puppet, even if it would haunt my dreams!

Man, that Balok puppet sculpt is still one of the best alien designs ever. Simple and immensely effective. Scared the crap out of me, when I was a kid.

Every now and then, I’m tempted to get a shirt, just to see people reacting to it out in public.
