'Star Trek comics debuted in 1967, the year after the original televison series premiered, and continued on an irregular serial schedule until 1979 under Western Publishing's Gold Key imprint (newsprint paperback collections dubbed "The Enterprise Logs" were also printed in the 1970s.)
The comics feature the original Starship Enterprise crew (Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scott, Sulu, et al) in Star Trek adventures which couldn't be produced in any other medium and remain available nowhere else.
Eventually, sixty full-color issues would be published. This, Checker's first collection, includes the original issues one through eight, featuring art by Nevio Zaccara (issues 1 and 2) and Alberto Giolitti (issues 3-8).
