Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Feb 4, 2018

The Gold Key Archives Vol. 4, Part 2.

The voyages of the Starship Enterprise continue as the valiant crew faces off against exotic stellar phenomena, emotionally-stunted geniuses, and corrupt Starfleet officials who aim to ruin Kirk's career! That's right: it's a return to the bizarre other-world of the Gold Key comics!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson review the three remaining issues in the Gold Key Archives, Volume 4. We discuss the mysterious "black hole" phenomenon in "Siege in Superspace," a planet full of kids playing a deadly game in "Child's Play," and Kirk's shocking transformation in "The Trial of Captain Kirk!"

In the news section we take a look at the Architects of Infinity cover and read the blurb, discuss the news of the new Star Trek: Discovery: Succession comic and review Star Trek Discovery #2.
