Romulan Sequels from John Byrne

Postby GustavoLeao » Sun Apr 20, 2008 6:01 pm

According to this thread on John Byrne's website, he will be doing several sequels to his Alien Spotlight Romulan one shot. First up, a two parter. Then some more.

half-yay! I enjoyed the Alien Spotlight issue in general, the story was great and I loved the setup of the alliance and such so I'm very up for a sequel. But I didn't care much for Mr Byrne's art for that issue so am less excited about seeing more in that style (I found the design of the praetor especially annoying).

Interesting place Mr Byrne's boards... after hunting about a bit: It seems he's working on four new Trek projects! Three of which have already been approved, all are TOS and one of will be a pre-Captain April prequel.

A further thought... if John Byrne gets to do spin-offs from his Alien Spotlight I hope everyone else does too; A Tipton/Messina Reliant series, more Captain Pike adventures, Tales from the Andorian Guard by Paul Storrie and Leonard O'Grady and the voyages of the Enterprise-E under Andrew Steven Harris and Sean Murphy... it would be glorious!

Well, if Byrne gets a chance to do a follow-up to "Romulans" maybe he'll continue on with that Klingon-Romulan alliance sub-plot.

Mr Ryall posted some art (I presume a cover) on his blog: linky. Can anyone say Klingon-Romulan alliance? :D I am increasingly excited about this series...

The Romulans preview art (Klingon alliance!) looks very, very interesting.

Yup... and that's based on Byrne's website. I think that a link to Byrne's posting on it was in the prior review column I wrote.

After seeing more preview pages and comments from Byrne himself, I'm even more excited for this series. The inclusion of TOS-era Klingons into the main plot makes it all the more sweeter. I think I'm in the fan minority in here when I say I definitely prefer the TOS Klingons over the bumpy-headed movie/TNG ones.

This is the extent of what he said "One of the projects in discussion is a TOS prequel -- but it predates Captain April." About half way down this page: link

I'm not so thrilled about this one myself, Byrne seems to be a bit of a TOS purist, and I'd rather someone doing a prequel set in the time between Enterprise and TOS be someone who actually gives a damn about Enterprise.
