Announcement: Star Trek: The Newspaper Strip Vol. 1 from IDWA comics news article
Long before the medium became a wasteland of creative bankrupcy, popular media franchises ventured into the realm of the newspaper strip to give readers three-to-four-panel daily fixes of such white-hot properties as Dallas, Pokémon and James Bond, not to mention things that were already successful comic books like The Amazing Spider-Man and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Star Trek was no exception, and in October 2012, IDW will publish Star Trek: The Newspaper Strip Vol. 1, collecting the first two years of the daily strip that followed the adventures of the USS Enterprise after the events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture as written and drawn by Thomas Warkentin (and later writer Sharman DiVono and artist Ron Harris), along with an introduction by Star Trek expert Rich Handley.
The collection will be priced at $49.99, with the Diamond order code: AUG12 0371.
