I haven't been posting much related to Star Trek, isn't it? Considering I originally started this blog thing as a companion to the Star Trek books website, I should keep doing the occasional Trek-related item. There'll be a book review or two before much longer, I imagine, but in the meantime, here's a new idea...
To help promote Rich Handley and Allen Lane's CD ROM of Star Trek comic strips, I'm going to run some of the early strips here (weeklies only), once or twice a week. Instead of using the ones from the CD, I'll be using my old scans; the ones on the CD are better. And larger. And cleaner. But this will give you a taste.
Because the full page strips are largish files, I'll do the top panel in the body of a blog entry, with a link to the full image.
So... let's begin, shall we? It's December, 1979, the time of the first Star Trek movie, and the newspaper is running a new comic strip...
