DC Comics’ “Star Trek” series followed “Wrath of Khan”
Star Trek 1-4 (1984)
Writer Mike W. Barr and artist Tom Sutton were the creative team that kicked off the third “Star Trek” comic book series, and the first from DC Comics, in 1984, after the success of the “Wrath of Khan” film.
Because of where the book sits in the “Star Trek” timeline, it starts off without Spock, and the first arc – as a Federation starship is attacked by the Klingons – features Saavik (played originally by Kirstie Alley) trying to fill Spock’s role on the Enterprise, with some difficulty.
The Klingons and the Federation declare war – despite the Organian Peace Treaty – but it appears the Federation and Klingons aren’t the only forces in play.
Tom Sutton is a fine artist, and though the likenesses come and go a bit, he’s a stabilizing presence on what was likely a tricky assignment. Some of the Klingons are a bit off, and James T. Kirk doesn’t always look exactly like 1984-era William Shatner.
Covers for the first three issues are by George Perez (New Teen Titans). Marv Wolfman was the editor of the series.
