Since 1967 Star Trek comic books have been published by almost all of the major comic book publishing companies. Starting with Gold Key Comic and making its way through the biggies, Marvel comics, DC Comics and Malibu, finally ending up with its current publisher, IDW Comics.
Star Trek has been a popular cult-classic for years. It has been portrayed on television, the big screens and comic books. The first comic book publisher of Star Trek comic books was Gold Key Comics. Starting in 1967 with their first title Planet of No Return, Gold Key produced 61 Star Trek Comic books and all focused on all-original adventures of The Original Series crew of the starship USS Enterprise. Star Trek comic books stayed with Gold Key Comics until 1979.
Marvel Comics and DC Comics then took intervals publishing Star Trek comic books. Many of these Star Trek comic books are adaptations of television episodes and movies. Some Star Trek comic books introduced by the big two, Marvel and DC were brand-new stories involving existing Star Trek characters, and still others have introduced completely new characters and settings.
Since 2007, IDW Publishing has taken over the Star Trek comic book line and has been producing all-new stories. The first Star Trek comic book published was a mini-series based on the popular television show Star trek, The Next Generation followed by a succession of mini-series. IDW comics continue to produce hits for Star Trek comic book fans and have several all-new limited and on-going titles available for order. The ongoing Star Trek comic book series features new stories set in the new cinematic universe, but the original cast, as well as the crews of Next Generation, Voyager and Deep Space Nine have all starred in one or more comic book series at IDW.
The most recent of IDW's Star Trek comic book series is called New Visions. Each issue of New Visions, written and produced by comic book legend, John Byrne, is a sort of sequel to a classic episode of the original TV series. These comic books are not created in the typical way either. Instead of being drawn, the panels of the story are made up of still-photos taken directly from the television show, with the word balloons added in.
IDW has also produced several crossover comic book series featuring various Star Trek characters. The original Star Trek crew met up with DC Comics' Legion of Super-Heroes. When the Borg joined forces with the Cybermen, the Next Generation crew teamed-up with Doctor Who to foil their plans. And the newest crossover series will make comic book history again when the Starship Enterprise lands on the Planet of the Apes.
