Spock's Memorium, in the latest issue of New Visions

Out this week is the fifth issue of John Byrne's New Visions photo-comic series. The main story in this issue is A Scent of Ghosts, which guest stars Number One, now a Commodore, in a story set before Byrne's previous adventures featuring her in his Romulan saga. However, as is customary in the series, there is also a short secondary story in the book, and in a remarkable quirk of timing, this Motion Picture era tale features Spock, pondering the passing of an associate. Here's a sneak peak at the first page of Memorium:

Of course John Byrne could not possibly have known this story would come so close to the death of Leonard Nimoy when he created this story weeks or months ago - In fact the story marks the passing of another Star Trek actor late last year (but I won't spoil who). But it seems it has come with perfect and poignant timing as we all make our own memorials, in thoughts, words, and pictures, to the passing of one of the most significant figures in Star Trek history.

Check back tomorrow for a full preview of the feature story from this issue, as well as the other Star Trek comic release this week, the third issue in the Planet of the Apes crossover series.
