Star Trek Classic UK Comics Vol. 2
This second volume fills in another major gap in Star Trek lore,
courtesy of these never-before reprinted comics that originally appeared
in weekly British magazines in the early 1970s. There's much to love
about these wonky, way-out writings and their atypical artwork. These
oft-forgotten Star Trek tales represent a different era. They're lost
gems with many facets and a unique perspective, an eccentric corner of
Star Trek history unlike any other. These are the U.K. voyages of the
Starship Enterprise―and, now, at last, fans everywhere can experience
them. As a special bonus, Rich Handley provides the first half
of a detailed encyclopedia of all things Star Trek from these British
comics. Exploring the minutiae is half the fun of enjoying a franchise,
and when it comes to Trek, there's no end of trivia to devour!
Walt Disney's Donald Duck Sunday Newspaper Strips Vol. 2
From deeper in the Disney Vaults, our second volume collects three more
complete years of Sunday fun―every color page from January 1943 through
December 1945. By the end of the book, WWII is (literally) history and
Donald, Daisy, and those incorrigible nephews find more than their share
of joy―and mayhem―in Duckberg. Disney scholar Alberto Becattini
provides an introduction that puts the strips in historical perspective,
and tells us about George Waiss, who joined the creative team in 1943,
taking on the inking chores over Al Taliaferro’s pencils.
