If a character’s lasted for decades before you got your hands on them, there’s usually a reason for that. And it’s usually because the creators did something — or several somethings — right. So it makes sense to consider exactly what made the character successful in the first place before you translate them to the screen.
What if H.G. Wells chased Jack the Ripper through time? John talks about Nicholas Meyer’s 1979 movie TIME AFTER TIME and checks out the new TV series.
Last week, I talked about STAR TREK: NEW VISIONS, the photomontage comics series of Star Trek adventures that John Byrne is doing for IDW.
But before John Byrne got a regular gig telling STAR TREK stories, he was just like the rest of us – A STAR TREK fan who’d occasionally make reference to it in his everyday life. It just so happened that Byrne’s everyday life was as a popular writer/artist of comic books. So I thought it’d be fun to see how many ST references I could pick out of Byrne’s classic comic book work.
