The John Byrne Collection

Exciting news for fans of John Byrne's Star Trek comics (which, should be everyone as they are some of the best Trek comics ever): IDW will be releasing the John Byrne Collection, a new oversized hardcover omnibus of all his Trek series (The Romulans Saga, Assignment: Earth, Crew, and Frontier Doctor), due in April. Here is the description from Amazon:
Comics legend John Byrne has taken on 4 Star Trek titles, and they are all collected here, in one oversized hardcover collection. "Assignment Earth" recounts the adventures of interstellar agent Gary Seven, "Crew" recounts a tale from the very beginnings of the United Federation of Planets, "Leonard McCoy: Frontier Doctor" is a collection of tales from the member of the Frontier Medics Program, and mystery, intrigue, and war abound in "Romulans."
Byrne has already confirmed, on his own forum, that he will be producing a new cover for the 320 page omnibus. But in the mean time Amazon have a stand in, using his first Romulan comic cover:


Byrne also noted on his forum he will be using this opportunity to correct a few errors that snuck into his work:
This will be a "last chance" to clean up all the little glitches that have persisted thru various iterations, like the Engineer whose name changes mysteriously in SCHISM, and may failure to identify the Organian who pops up at the end of the same series. Also correcting a line of dialog from TOS which was "fixed" by an over-zealous proofreader in THE HOLLOW CROWN. We're also going to see if it's possible to fix the poor resolution on the first issue of A:E, which was my fault since I somehow scanned the pages at the wrong setting.
Sounds good. But I really want to know is, when will Byrne be giving us some new Trek?!
