A Navigational Guide To 45 Years Of ‘Star Trek’ Comics

Untitled-1

The hit film Star Trek Into Darkness is now available (as a digital download; the disc gets released in a couple of weeks), and you can stream the entirety of The Original Series, The Next Generation and more on Netflix and through other services. But what if you want more; what if you want the adventures of Captain James T. Kirk, Mister Spock, Doctor Leonard McCoy and that one redshirt who’s probably going to die before the cold open is over in your favorite four-color format?

The core storytelling element of Star Trek -- a group of heroes in brightly-colored costumes battle thinly-veiled analogues of Russia, China and other places while exploring the cosmos and teaching everyone lessons -- seems like it would be perfect for comics. And it is, and there are some good ones out there. Unfortunately, digging through the back-issue bins and the spotty collections that are available can be challenging, and that’s why I’m here to help you out with this navigation guide to 45 years of Star Trek comics.
