STAR TREK: The Next Generation #1 Return To Raimon by Jerome-K-Moore STAR TREK: The Next Generation #1 Return To Raimon by Jerome-K-Moore
Comic Book Cover, DC Comics' STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. Pencil, Ink, Opaque gouache.

I dug up this old photocopy of my illustration for the first issue of DC's regular series of the Enterprise D crew. Sorry for the grime. lol But that's "old school," as you "kids" here at DA keep reminding me.

What the heck is Takei doing signing a Next Gen comic?

I loved this cover when it came out. I remember really wishing the insides where done in the same style (though I guess that would have taken forever! ) you always nailed teh likenesses on the people AND the ships which seemed to be a rarity back then....

Thank you, Vince! I appreciate your generous praise. I guess it helped that I was such a big Trek fan. Trek fans are usually very attentive to details, so it worked out pretty well. Looking back on the older Trek comics, it would seem that some of the artists, and even the writers, didn't genuinely care about the nuances as much.

My bane was, and continues to be, my innate laziness. Making a monthly comic book schedule seems like an insane undertaking to me. In spite of my annoying need to pay the rent, it remains my desire to finesse a story's art, deadlines be damned. LOL! But I would also want the story I illustrate to be one that is resonant, uniquely compelling, and as faithful to the show as I endeavor to be with my art. Unfortunately, I never found an inspiring story scheduled far enough in advance for me to work on.

Must've been a Romulan conspiracy. ;)

The line technique looks good, it's not too heavy--not too delicate; especially considering you have to factor in very saturated colour. The likeness are spot one (even the small ones) and very dimensional.

I don't recall the colour version of this work but like much of your stuff, Jerome: I find it hard to believe I wouldn't have noticed it unless it just had some dreadful (or at best unflattering) colour job that just diminished the strength of the black and white art.

Old School is still awesome and this is a great pic. I'm going to assume it's based in season two because they're still wearing the collarless uniforms, but Riker has a beard.

No. It was just my brand-new experimentation with a texture technique I hoped would effectively translate the half-tones from the photo reference. I wanted to develop something different in style from what I had seen done already in comics. I was influenced by some illustrations I saw in a telephone book.

As I said, this was the beginning, and I feel I got steadily better, refining the technique. But I realize it's not everyone's "cup of tea." Sorry if it's not to your liking, sir.

Thank you for your comments.

Why, thank you. I tend to agree about the inferior color job. But even with today's improved methods, it still takes a talented color artist to make things look good.
