'Based on feedback they have apparently found that NEW VISIONS goes over big with people who are not "conventional comic readers". I interpret that to mean those people who have spent WAY too many years reading comics, and have built all kinds of rules for what they should be. The people who complain that they "don't like photos with word bubbles in them" but who have no problem with the photorealistic painted books.' - John Byrne

Okay, all mockery of Byrnes writing and second rate photoshop skills, that was indeed a proper TOS 'McCoy Burns Spock to end the episode' bit at the end there :lol

I'm sure that it was all a misunderstanding will be a lot of consolation for Bronson's family and friends.

This is the first of these I've read that actually seems like a proper classic Star Trek plot. I don't think the photostrip adds enough to it to make it worthwhile, but the story is fine.

Wasn't Bronson revived?

If not, meh, he's a Redshirt! :)

While it's not really my thing (and I have flashbacks to Gold Key comics here), I don't honestly think these comics are bad. I mean, most of them at least attempt to evoke classic Trek tropes and plots. This one could be straight off the show, at least in terms of basic ideas and execution. In particular I think Byrne nails the voices of these characters.

I mean, I'm not interested in going out and buying them, but I don't actively think there's anything wrong with them existing.

The frozen people all being identical isn't laziness - it's because they're clones or something. Sure, John.
