Over the last couple of years comic legend John Byrne has been adding more depth the the Romulans through his Alien Spotlight: Romulans and and Romulans: The Hollow crown series. And next week IDW kicks off the final series of Byrne’s cycle with "Star Trek: Romulans: Schism." And today we have a first look at the first issue.
PREVIEW: Star Trek: Romulans: Schism #1
Written and art by John Byrne
War! From behind the scenes, the Klingons loose their unsuspecting puppets, the Romulans, against the forces of the Federation. But the Klingon Emperor is impatient with the slow pace of the conflict, and back on Romulus there are already some who begin to see through the Klingon schemes. The final arc in John Byrne’s Romulans tales begins here!
