Star Trek newspaper comic strips

Over at the TrekBBS, user KirkPicard posted a link to a new site by Rich Handley offering scans of all of the Star Trek newspaper comic strips from 1979-83 and British comic strips from various publications. Several years back Pocket considered the possibility of doing a book of the US strips, but cancelled its plans because essential legal paperwork couldn't be located. Rich made available CD ROMs of this material a few years ago. Now it's all online for free.

The UK strips are similar to the early Gold Key comics -- not entirely faithful to the show, to put it mildly. The US strips, on the other hand, definitely have some worthwhile moments. And they're free. Check them out!

(This is an old scan of mine; Rich's are sharper and clearer.)

Thanks for posting this link! I just found out about these strips a few months ago (guess I was living under a rock) and have been looking for them since. Very cool Star Trek collectible oddity.
