That's the plan, or at least part of it.

Also, IDW will be producing a special Omnibus Edition of selected NEW VISIONS issues, for signing purposes. That's Bill's idea. Apparently he really likes the series.

Interesting announcement! It must feel surreal, given what Mr Penn said above.

Awesome!!!  This is great news!  So wonderful to hear there will be an omnibus of some NEW VISIONS stories - it’s among JB’s best and a joy to read.

I hope William Shatner’s endorsement will bring in some new readers.  Even with the regular series coming to a close, there is so much to be discovered by reading the existing stories.  It’s so heartening to see him get involved in talking about NEW VISIONS.  I really want people to see what a unique project this is - there is nothing quite like it.  It can’t be compared to a ”photonovel” - it’s something that is all its own.  

I doubt the studio would let someone use the actors’ images if they did not handle the material correctly.  Under JB, the characters acted as they did in the series, and the use of their work made it a kind of collaboration.  
So glad you will be in Boston, JB - one of my favorite cities.  I’m taking my vacation there next month.

Echoing my immediate thoughts...



Congrats, JB. I hope I can get up there.

IDW may be way ahead of me on this but an introduction by William Shatner for the Omnibus certainly wouldn't hurt sales!

I will be going to Boston, exclusively for this, John. I will be travelling with our mutual friend, Kevin.
