Rereading the Comics
 
I'm endevouring to go back and reread the Star Trek Comics, from Gold Key to DC, to Marvel and Wildstorm. I have'nt read many of these since I was 15 years old. I will be starting With DC's First TOS Series set immediately after Wrath of Khan.

Anyone else revisiting the comic series?

We have been looking back at a lot of comics on Literary Treks, in fact on our latest episode we talk about "Divided We Fall" the DS9/TNG crossover by Wildstorm. I really liked this series, it was fantastic.

Yep listened to your Podcast, you guys are doing a fantastic job, I've read most of the DC Stuff and Marvel stuff years ago, but many like the series you mentioned I have not read and I can't wait to get to them. The comics when they were good, were fantastic at filling in alot of the voids between series and I think you'll enjoy rereading them if you are going to start doing so, love to hear about your re-reads on the cast.

I'm glad! We will continue to look back at the old comics and the older IDW comics as well. I'm looking forward to seeing all the good stuff I missed :bolian:

Dave do you have the Complete Comics Collection DVD? It has every comic from every publisher up through IDW.

Well, except for the two Star Trek/X-Men crossover comics. Still, I love it!

^And it's missing the Klingon-language version of Starfleet Academy #18, though it claims to have it.

Oh, and "up through IDW" is unclear phrasing, because it could be taken to mean that it includes IDW. It does not include the IDW or TokyoPop comics (nor does it have the US and British newspaper comic strips, though there have been efforts to arrange for another CD for them. IDW has begun publishing a 2-volume compilation of the US strips.)

I cannot wait for the US strips to come out!

Yes, I enjoy rereading the comics - I just did a stretch through the 2nd DC series, my favorites.

Why not start with the Gold Key's though, instead of DC 1st? Obviously, Gold Key came first, plus if you started with them, it would be like at dinner, where you eat your veggies first to get them out of the way. :lol:

I haven't read any of them in ages, but I have been working my way through the CCC DVD since it came out.

i just started my own re-read of the comics, beginning with DC Series I. I'm about halfway through the "Mirror Universe" arc. The first DC TOS series had alot of strong writing. Ive always been mixed on Sutton/Villagran's art. They were get at characters, but they never drew the interiors/exteriors of the ship to my liking.

I like the older comics I take them for what they are and when they were written, and that they were written by people that never initially seen the show, I'll get to them
