John Byrne Expands Star Trek Visions
Ongoing Mission Becomes Ongoing Series
With the popularity of last year’s Star Trek Annual 2013 photonovel, John Byrne & IDW Publishing have decided to produce an ongoing bi-monthly Star Trek: New Visions photonovel series starting in May 2014.
The fumetti or “photonovel” style comic had pretty much died out in the last few decades until Byrne decided to work on Star Trek Annual 2013. Will it make a comeback? Only time will tell.
Last year, comic-book legend, John Byrne set out “to explore strange new worlds” within the Star Trek universe, using a unique technique, the photonovel. The resulting Star Trek Annual 2013, which is completely sold out through Diamond and headed for a second printing, was a creative success due to this distinctive storytelling device. This May, Byrne will continue his quest “to seek out new life and new civilizations” using the photonovel format to produce an ongoing bi-monthly series, Star Trek: New Visions.
