Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Jan 17, 2016

Gold Key Comics Vol. 2, Part 1.

If the writers and artist in Far Beyond the Stars who worked with Benny wrote and illustrated a comic that imagined the universe of Star Trek, what they would have produced would have surely looked and felt like the Gold Key Comics.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about Gold Key Comics Volume 2. We discuss the evolution of the comics, Voodoo Planet, The Youth Trap, The Legacy of Lazarus and our final thoughts.

In the news section we look at the newest comics, Starfleet Academy #2, Ongoing #53 and New Visions #10.
