Star Trek New Visions: An Unexpected Yesterday (48 pages • $7.99)
Written, with photo manipulation by John Byrne
Kirk and his crew venture into the past, only to discover it is nothing like what their history books teach—no trace of the devastation of World War III and the Eugenics Wars. What can have caused such a divergence? The answer is to be found in “An Unexpected Yesterday.”
Byrne’s ‘New Visions’ series coming to an end
June’s issue of John Byrne’s Star Trek: New Visions series is the 22nd in the series, which he began back in May 2014. Earlier this month Byrne announced on Twitter that the 24th issue will be the last in the series, noting ” It’s been an amazing amount of fun, but I’ve felt this coming for a while.” According to the author the series will “bow out with one last big itch scratched.”
The Volume 6 trade paperback collection (with issues 15, 16 and 17) was recently released and can be picked up on Amazon at a discount. Volume 7 (with issues 18, 19 and 20) is due in August and can be pre-ordered at Amazon.
