ITEM! Don’tcha just love it when the good guys win one every once in awhile? It was just back this past November when the bone-headed brainiacs at Marvel Management yanked GIT Corps’ license to keep producing their dazzling and delightful DVD collections featuring 40+ years of Marvel’s best and brightest — all scanned from original issues I might add, unlike a certain series of Masterworks reprints that I could mention...
But it looks like you can’t keep a good startup down! Hot on the heels of their successful releases of the Absolutely Mad Magazine Collection, the Archie Bronze Age Collection, and the National Lampoon Complete Collection, comes their next critically-acclaimed collection, Star Trek: The Complete Comic Book Collection!
Featuring every single Star Trek comic ever published (with the exception of the current Trek comic licensees, IDW), this collection spans the Gold Key comics of the 60s, through the entire Marvel Comics comics (featuring some awesome art by the late-great Dave Cockrum), all the way to the recent Wildstorm books! Holy Skrull-cow! That’s everything from Captain Kirk to Captain Janeway. That’s more Klingons, Romulans and Tribbles than you can shake a dilithium crystal at! That’s light-years of reading all for the low-low-low price of $49.99 (or 5 slips of gold-pressed latinum, for those societies without legal tender).
This titanic Trek tribute will be released this September, though I expect my gratis review copy to show up well before then. Didja hear that GIT Corp? Gratis Review copy? The Smilin’ One’s not rich, yah know. Well, actually I am, but I’ll still take a free copy anyway! Your commanding officer will thank you!
