IDW presents this special 100-page collection of classic Gold Key_Star Trek_comics. Created by writers and artists who had not seen the show often (or at all) and worked off of whatever publicity materials they could get their hands on, the Gold Key Comics are true 1960s gems. Needless to say, the end results were definitely unusual - and very un-Trek_in some cases (A blond Scotty! Spock kills! The_Enterprise_belches fire!). Collecting_"The Planet of No Return," "The Youth Trap," and "The Enterprise Mutiny," this special also features a history of the Star_Trek Gold Key comics by author Joe Berenato.
