Description



"Trekkies" beam up with this tremendous collection of vintage to modern Star Trek comics.


This galaxy wide bundle goes to warp drive with a 1967-1979 Gold Key original series near run of (57/61) issues, including #1. When first published these Gold Key issues were available at newsstands. Versions with Whitman logos instead of GK logos were sold at retail stores and exist for most issues numbered 20 and higher. Surviving Whitman copies are estimated at 10% or less of their GK counterparts. As both the GK and Whitman versions were published by parent company Western Publishing, there are many collectors who accept examples with either logo as part of their collection. Those of a like mind, will be pleased to know that this vast accumulation also features (12) Whitman variants, including all (4) issues absent from the GK run. Added together, this gives you a complete (61) issue 1967-1979 run with (57) Gold Key covers and (4) Whitman covers. Grading for this run is as follows:


(57) Gold Key covers: #1 (VG-), #2 (VG-FN), #3 (GD), #4 (VG+), #5 (VG), #6 (GD-VG), #7 (VG), #8 (GD-VG), #9 (FN), #10 (VG-FN), #11 (FN), #12 (GD-VG), #13 (VG), #14 (GD), #15 (VG); and balance range as (80% FN to VF+, 20 VG to VG-FN) with issue numbers: 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61


(4) Whitman covers range (VG-FN to FN+): #29, #38, #51, #53

 


Also present are:


(13) 1967-1979 Duplicates ranging (VG to VF) with: (5) Gold Key; (8) Whitman


(3) 1978 Whitman "Dynabrite Comics" average (VG)


(1) 1991 DC Star Trek VI "The Undiscoverd Country" movie adaptation graphic novel (FN-VF)


(500+) Copper/Modern Age comics (with some duplicates) in average (NM to NM-MT+) condition, with 5% lesser. Published mainly by DC, along with lesser quantities from IDW, Wildstorm and Marvel, these later date issues form complete, near and partial runs of extended and limited series titles, including the DC 1984 and 1989 runs.
