For Star Trek comic fans, a new book, New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics, will be of interest.
“New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics examines the long history of Star Trek in the four-color realm, featuring insightful essays from popular Trek comic scribes and novelists, as well as other subject-matter experts.”
The history of Star Trek comics reaches back to 1967, and over thousand comics from Gold Key/Western, City Magazines/IPC, Marvel Comics, Power Records, the L.A. Times Syndicate, DC Comics, Malibu Graphics, WildStorm Productions, Tokypop, IDW Publishing, and Wired Magazine have been published, chronicling the adventures of the crew of the USS Enterprise.
To explore this long history, over a dozen contributors have written essays about Star Trek comics. The contributors, authors of Star Trek comics and novels, include: Jim Beard, Joseph F. Berenato, Julian Darius, Keith DeCandido, Kevin Dilmore, Robert Greenberger, Rich Handley, Mark Martinez, Tom Mason, David McIntee, Martín A. Pérez, Alan J. Porter, Colin Smith, Scott Tipton, Cody Walker, and Dayton Ward.
Berenato is the editor of the essay collection, and the cover art was provided by Patricio Carbajal.
New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics is expected out this summer.
