Walter Koenig is probably best known for his role in the original Star Trek series and films, but fans may not realize that the actor is also a budding graphic novelist. Things To Come, his most recent turn at writing, was intended to be a graphic novel, but was split into four standalone issues for its first run. His look at vampires, the last sentient beings on Earth, will be released later as a graphic novel. Koenig, while famous on Star Trek as Pavel Chekov, is also a fan-favorite as Alfred Bester on Babylon 5.
