TrekWeb Interviews 'Star Trek Special' Comics Artist

Trekweb.COM brings you this exclusive interview with Steve Lieber, one of the artists for Wildstorm's upcoming 'Star Trek Special' comic one-shot, featuring tales with characters from all 4 Trek series.

Q: What can you tell us about your work on 'Wildstorm's Star Trek Special' ?

A : I illustrated a story called 'The Wake', a short story featuring Scotty, McCoy and Spock set just after the end of 'Star Trek Generations', so McCoy is over 140 years old. It was written by Jeffrey Lang, a wonderful writer with whom I've collaborated on stories for a number of other publishers. He wrote an extremely unusual story - it's almost an eulogy and I tried very hard to capture its wistful melancholy.

Q: Did you use and reference material from Paramount ? Like the actor's likeness and ship's exteriors ?

A: There aren't any ships exteriors - the story takes place entirely in one room. As I noted, it's an unusual story. My print reference came from my editor at Wildstorm. I used the movies, mostly, and I actually found the documentary 'Trekkies' to be quite helpful in nailing down the likenesses of James Doohan - his close-ups were on the screen a lot longer than you'll find in any Trek movie, so there was plenty of time to really study his face.

Q: Is this your first Star Trek work ?

A: Yes, though I certainly hope it won't be the last.

A: What's next for Steve Lieber ?

A: My next project is called "Morning Dragons'. It's an original graphic novel, written by Warren Ellis (Planetary, Spider-Man), that tells the story of a Viking incursion into Japan, set in the early 12th Century.It'll be black and white, around a hundred pages long, and drawn in something resembling the odd variety of techniques that I used in 'Whiteout'. 'Morning Dragons' will be published by Image in 2001. Thanks to Steve for this exclusive interview. 'Star Trek Special' will be published by Wildstorm in January 2001.
