So next week I'm getting my Star Trek fix.
I just ordered a DVD set of Star Trek comics in PDF format. The DVD set includes all Star Trek comics from 1967 to 2002, which is over 500 issues
worth. I got it for a total of fifteen dollars on Amazon. That includes S&H.
I'm having me a NERDGASM!
Please don't take this to be a spam, it is not intended to be.
I've always enjoyed reading comics. I also used to be a prolific reader and would read anything that peaked my interest whether or not it was a comic
or a novel. I enjoyed the stories and in comics enjoyed some of the artwork. To me the only real difference between a comic and a novel is that it is
more visual because it is illustrated rather than described by text. They can also be quite intelligent at times. I really don't understand the
stigma that reading comics has with it, but I have heard the poor excuses a number of times over the years. I just can't buy them.
I was such a prolific reader that I could read Stephen King's "It" in just about six hours straight, with only taking a break to go to the
As far as Star Trek comics go, I've always enjoyed DC more than any other. To me, DC Comics captured the theme of what Star Trek is more than any
other. I liked the stories in other comics, but they just didn't really capture the feel of Star Trek.
I also appreciated the fact that in DC's first run they always tied in the comic story to the movie, and would always reset things so they could tie
it to the movie in some way. Even with that though, I never really considered the comics part of the television continuity, I just liked the stories
and really just couldn't get enough Star Trek.
But alas, I really don't read comics that much anymore. They're really expensive these days, and they don't really have to be.
Ah well, things change.
But at least now I'll have my complete collection of STAR TREK COMICS!
