Re: Graphic Novelizations of Trek Novels
^^Yep, I've got the O'Neill book. Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics is also valuable as an analysis of how comic-book storytelling (or more generally "sequential art") works.
Will Eisner wrote a bunch of stuff about graphic storytelling and visual narrative as well. All are excellent books.
Everything stated above (unless otherwise noted) is my opinion and should be treated as such. You'll automatically fail in your response if you choose to ignore this message. That is all.
Don't just challenge what they think, challenge how they think.
