The hit film Star Trek Into Darkness is now available (as a digital download; the disc gets released in a couple of weeks), and you can stream the entirety of The Original Series, The Next Generation and more on Netflix and through other services. But what if you want more; what if you want the adventures of Captain James T. Kirk, Mister Spock, Doctor Leonard McCoy and that one redshirt who’s probably going to die before the cold open is over in your favorite four-color format?
The core storytelling element of Star Trek – a group of heroes in brightly-colored costumes battle thinly-veiled analogues of Russia, China and other places while exploring the cosmos and teaching everyone lessons — seems like it would be perfect for comics. And it is, and there are some good ones out there. Unfortunately, digging through the back-issue bins and the spotty collections that are available can be challenging, and that’s why I’m here to help you out with this navigation guide to 45 years of Star Trek comics.
The fourth issue of She Died In Terrebonne is now available in .CBZ and .PDF formats in the Agreeable Comics shop. To quote the solicitation copy:The inaugural adventure of Sam Kimimura wraps up with death, betrayal and hard drinking. Included in this is an exclusive prose short by Kevin Church and pinups from Ming Doyle, Cathy Leamy, Max Riffner and Justin Greenwood!So, go spend your money. Please. We need it. For drugs.
NOTE: At least through Friday, we’re putting digital copies of 1-3 on sale for one dollar each. That means you can read all of She Died In Terrebonne and the bonus materials for five dollars total. Ron Popeil himself couldn’t give you a deal that good.
