Star Trek: New Visions Ongoing Photonovel Series By John Byrne Begins May 2014

John Byrne Expands Star Trek Visions

Star Trek: New Visions #1

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.

 

Press Release

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.

Star Trek Annual 2013

The Most Unique “Photonovel” Ever Coming This December

 

John Byrne creates a “fumetti” style photonovel for Star Trek Annual 2013 – on sale in December from IDW Publishing.

 

Press Release

John Byrne is no stranger to breaking new ground and he is doing it again with the extra-length Star Trek Annual 2013, arriving this December from IDW.

Byrne returns to the Star Trek universe in an entirely unexpected way—for this annual, he has created a completely original Star Trek story that plays out like a “lost episode,” using a uniquely constructed photomontage to create an entirely new story. “Strange New Worlds” serves as a direct sequel to the fan-favorite episode, “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” which aired as the third episode of Star Trek’s first season in 1966.

“There was a visual richness to that second pilot that really drew me in,” said writer/artist John Byrne, “and since I have long wanted to experiment with something like this project, that episode seemed the perfect choice for a sequel.”
