Now in its 15th Year Serving STAR TREK Comic Fans!





    Between 1967 and 1979, Gold Key published 61 STAR TREK comics.  Today's fans often overlook 
these stories, forgetting that they are part of the STAR TREK universe. While far from canon for a number 
of reasons, these adventures are every bit as exciting and fascinating as their television counterparts.
Further, due to the age and demand of these thirty-plus year old comics, they are expensive and hard to find.  
This site was created to give everyone a chance to enjoy these stories again.

    This site was originally created by devoted fan Mark Lookabaugh, and many visitors have enjoyed the Gold Key Trek comics via his web site. Mr. Lookabaugh has since found it impossible to continue hosting the site in his directory. I have been a constant visitor and champion of his original site and when I discovered that it had been removed I wrote to him. He gave me his blessing to take his site and resurrect it as I saw fit. He has been a champion of my STAR TREK sites and felt I could do justice to the material. I hope that old visitors to his site and new visitors alike will find this a fun and interesting place to learn about these classic tales. Enjoy!
