New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics, from Sequart!

Those two or three of you who read my monthly “writing wrap-up” posts have seen notes about an essay I was writing “for a collection of essays on a pop culture subject To Be Named Later.” Well, here it is, all Later and stuff, and here I am, naming things.

Sequart.org: New Life and New Civilizations: Exploring Star Trek Comics

Edited by Joseph F. Berenato, New Life and New Civilizations will contain essays covering pretty much every facet of Star Trek in comics form, from Gold Key’s initial run which began while the original series was still in production up through the most recent offerings from IDW Publishing, and everything in between.

Even quirky corners of Trek comics will be explored, from the British comic strips to the old Power Records comic/record sets to stories told in the pages of coloring and activity books and even the strips printed on the McDonalds Happy Meal boxes as tie-ins to Star Trek: The Motion Picture. My essay will be taking a look at Marvel’s second run of Star Trek comics in the late 199os, which included two of my favorite series, Early Voyages and Starfleet Academy.

The lineup of authors for the collection is: Jim Beard, Joseph F. Berenato, Julian Darius, Keith DeCandido, Kevin Dilmore, Robert Greenberger, Rich Handley, Mark Martinez, Tom Mason, David McIntee, Martín A. Pérez, Alan J. Porter, Colin Smith, Scott Tipton, Cody Walker, and Yours Truly. As you can see, I’m in some pretty cool ompany.

Oh, and it will feature cover art by Patricio Carbajal. Behold, yo:

Pretty swank, right?

New Life and New Civilizations currently is slated for a summer 2014 release. Click the link or the pic to head to Sequart’s site to read all about it, and I’ll obviously have more info to share as it becomes available.
