Gold Key Comics Vol. 1.
The first company to produce Star Trek comics was
Gold Key. Armed in the beginning with only production art and never
having seen the show, these comics give fans a picture of what Star
Trek might have been without the philosophy and hope for the future
Roddenberry instilled in the franchise.
In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew
Rushing and Dan Gunther go back to issues 1 though 3 of the Gold
Key comics, collected in IDW's stunning Volume 1. We discuss the
impact of creators who had never seen Star Trek beyond publicity
stills and how this impacts the look, feel and interpretation of
Star Trek, asking the question; "If this was what Star Trek had
been, would it have lasted 50 years?". We walk through each issue
and conclude with our ratings for the first 3 issues.
In our news segment we talk about the upcoming Star
Trek/Green Lantern crossover as well as take a look at the last
issue of the Trek/Apes series.
