Comments Leonard McCoy, Frontier Doctor

  • Brad

    Bloody fantastic! What a great surprise. I bought this during a holiday bookstore visit. I saw "Star Trek" -- I saw Leonard McCoy -- I saw John Byrne -- and I thought, "I must have this." My whim needed to be fulfilled, so I fulfilled my whim. I didn't expect much, though. I figured I'd be disappointed, but that would have been okay because the only reason I bought it was nostalgia. I could cope if it sucked. I mostly wanted to revisit John Byrne's art, and see what he could do with my favourite [...]

    What a charming interlude about our favorite space doctor. And his facial hair! :D All of the stories could have been full episodes or even novellas, but they were a fun exploration into what Bones might have done between missions.

  • Simon Ford

    Five Stars, and why not.Leonard McCoys adventures from the end of his first time with Kirk until he's dragged back to Starfleet for the refitted Enterprise's shakedown/mission involving V'Ger.Nice stories that are well written and a pleasure to read too.

  • Jean-Pierre Vidrine

    These are the kinds of stories I love from Star Trek. Weird speculation and boundless possibility the common traits of these episodes. Them being told from the perspective of Dr. McCoy during a wide open time in Star Trek's future history just makes them all the more interesting. The one-page doctor jokes at the end of the collection are amusing.

  • Alan

    In some ways I feel guilty for reading a Trek TPB, but over the past year this is the third TPB I have read written by John Byrne (a bit of a polarizing figure for his 'net comments), and frankly he is doing good science fiction. Yes, he is using the TOS characters and settings to do so. The McCoy stories take place between the end of the television series and the first movie. Bynre may keep the science to a minimum, but the the questions of ethics and morality are part of the story telling; one [...]

  • The_Mad_Swede

    This fourth volume of Star Trek by John Byrne collects issues #1–4 of Leonard McCoy Frontier Doctor.The series, set after the original series, and constructed as a number of missives from the good doctor to his friend admiral Kirk, offers some delightful stories during the former's stint on the Federation's Frontier Medics Program. There are also nice and subtle little tie-ins with both Assignment: Earth and Crew. Most importantly, however, Byrne truly captures Bones' character well, both visu [...]

  • Mikael Kuoppala

    Back in 1979 "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" showed all the characters from the original Star Trek TV-series returning to active duty. The era between the TV-stories and the first movie was left untouched until an uneven novel series "The Lost Years" gave us stories from those intervening years. Now John Byrne expands on that concept, giving us a collection of interconnected stories about Doctor Leonard McCoy.Free from Starfleet, McCoy tours the most exotic areas of the galaxy, bringing help to [...]

  • David Palazzolo

    Takes place between the end of the original series and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Lovingly crafted by John Byrne, this installment of what I like to call Star Trek: The Byrne-iverse not only has ties to all other of Byrne's Trek stories (Romulans, Crew and Assignment: Earth), but tiny ties to the expanded Trek continuity as well. SEE Admiral Kirk use experimental holo-technology to approve designs for the USS Enterprise refit, WATCH as a helpful Lieutenant floats over to Kirk using gravity b [...]

  • Terrence Miltner

    This is exactly the book I expected it to be. And that is high praise considering it was a story about one of my favorite characters, Dr. Leonard McCoy, roaming the universe and solving problems written and drawn by John Byrne whose work in the '80s had a formative effect on me. My high expectations were met on both the story and the art fronts. If you are a fan of either John Byrne or Leonard McCoy, you will probably enjoy these tales. If, like me, you are a fan of both. You will most certainly [...]

  • Michael

    Not much action to the proceedings, but Byrne presents a strongly plot-centric narrative that recalls James White's Medical Sf work but the background supporting character romance lacks chemistry and detracts from the second and third stories (much as it did in Byrne's Gary 7 mini-series). He gets the Doc dead-on and you can effortlessly "hear" the actor's voice speaking his dialogue i your mind's "ear"

  • Bill

    John Byrne really nails it. Solid Star Trek and solid science fiction. A complete medical mystery story in every issue. It's like Quincy (or House for you younger sprats) in space. If you like Star Trek and crusty Dr. McCoy, no bones about it, you'll enjoy this book. (I told myself not to do the pun, but I never listen.)

  • Matt Piechocinski

    Fun. Byrne has a really good handle on the Star Trek mythos. I know it's nitpicking, and violating sci-fi suspension of disbelief, but I thought Bones came up with solutions to ailments a little too easy. But other than that, it's really pretty good.

  • John Yelverton

    A wonderful collection of stories about what happened to Dr. McCoy after the five year voyage but before the V'Ger incident.

  • Faith

    Can't beat McCoy being himself, but this collection of short comic books is just mediocre. Fun, but nothing special.

  • Pablo

    Para fans de star trek tos

  • Andrew

    This is a short, fun collection of stories. McCoy's character is spot on.

  • j.

    I'm not much into comics, but I was fairly surprised about how much I actually enjoyed this format. The stories were fun. Nothing totally amazing, but fun. :)

  • Julie

    What a fun read! I am so glad they have Given Bones some time for his own stories. The beard did kind of throw me off in the beginning, but I got used to it.

  • Monty

    Four stories about McCoy's adventures between the original series and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Not exactly what I'd call a "must read," but certainly an entertaining curiosity. Fun.
