Trek Newspaper Comics Volume 2Posted by T'Bonz - 15/04/13 at 11:04 am
Star Trek: The Newspaper Comics, Volume 2 is in production and fans are being asked for their assistance in tracking down some of the old comics.
Star Trek: The Newspaper Comics, Volume 1: 1979-1981 featured the first ten L.A. Times Syndicate comic strips by Thomas Warkentin, Sharman DiVono, and Ron Harris.
The second book will feature the next ten stories, published between 1982 and 1983 and fan help is solicited in obtaining high-quality images of the comic strips.
“In creating that first volume, we worked hard to find the highest-quality strips available,” said Archivist Rich Handley. “Now we’re preparing Volume 2, and we’re on the lookout once more. We’ve already located all of the strips from the second batch of ten stories, but are reaching out to the fan community in the hope of finding higher-quality versions of some of them. If you have any of the actual dailies (the original strips, rather than photocopied versions) published between February 1982 and January 1983, and would be willing to lend them for scanning purposes (or provide high-resolution scans), please contact editor Dean Mullaney at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your assistance. With your help, we can continue presenting these lost gems in the best light possible.”
