The comic story is incompatable with the novels, as everyone's favourite insane praetor clearly isn't elderly Vrax, who is in charge there.
Memory Beta says:
Vrax being Praetor in 2265 may indicate that he is the Praetor who was assassinated by his son, who subsequently took the praetorship, as described in Alien Spotlight: Romulans, set in 2266.
By my estimate, going by date references in Open Secrets, "Balance of Terror" (and therefore Alien Spotlight: Romulans) is at least five months after Summon the Thunder. As far as I can tell, there's no irreconcilable inconsistency between VNG and Byrne's Romulan story -- though that may change in Byrne's later Romulan comics.

This has me curious, I just read the Alien Spotlight story, a couple of days ago. I wasn't sure if it was a story that goes into late 2265 or sometime in 2266. I haven't read the Byrne story yet, but does something specfically place it in 2266?
The Enterprise DID have a second Five Year Mission between 2273 and 2278. Just use a little imagination.
