IDW Collecting Star Trek Newspaper Strips Into Hardcover Edition

For the first time ever, IDW Publishing is collecting the daily adventures of the Star Trek crew into a collected edition. The comic strip debuted on December 2, 1979 and ran in newspapers all across the country seven days a week for four years in total. Daily comics were printed in black and white, while Sunday’s strips were in color.

“Even most die-hard Trek fans have never seen these strips,” says series editor, Dean Mullaney. “It’s going to be a real treat!”

This collection will include work by initial writer and illustrator, Thomas Warkentin. It will also include work by writer Sharman DiVono and artist Ron Harris, who continued the story after Warkentin. The strips have been restored with care by the Library of American Comics and the book’s introduction is given by Star Trek expert, Rich Handley.

Star Trek: The Newspaper Strips, Volume 1 will collect ten complete story arcs picking up the Star Trek story after the events of the first film. The 264 page hardcover, to be released in October 2012, will cost $49.99 USD.
