IDW Expands Photonovel Series With ‘Star Trek: New Visions’
  |  @   |  

In December, IDW Publishing released the Star Trek Annual 2013, where comics great John Byrne had the Star Trek universe boldly go into photonovel territory. The 48-page full-color issue, subtitled “Strange New Worlds,” which served as a sequel to the Star Trek: The Original Series television episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” turned out to be such a hit, that the publisher is turning it into a new ongoing bi-monthly series.

Titled Star Trek: New Visions, each extra-length photonovel issue will be created by Byrne, who reportedly will use more than just photo manipulation for the new series, which begins in May 2014 with Star Trek: New Visions #1 – The Mirror, Cracked, available for pre-order now.

“What John does on these photonovel stories is nothing short of amazing,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Office/Editor-in-Chief. “He’s moved far beyond photo-manipulation and montage to constructing his own set pieces, uniforms, and characters. Much more than just comic stories, these tales are the closest thing to Original Series-era “˜lost episodes’ that the world will ever see.”

Star Trek: New Visions #1 – The Mirror, Cracked, which will be released on May 21, 2014, will explore what happened after the events of The Original Series episode “Mirror, Mirror.”

In issue #1, “The Mirror, Cracked,” the crew of the Starship: Enterprise discovers two strangers in their midst, and things take a turn when they learn that one of them has made a pact with one of James Kirk’s oldest foes.

IDW also announced that a new printing of Star Trek Annual 2013 will also ship this May.
