When it comes to Star Trek comics, history tends to repeat itself. After Marvel lost the license for its post-The Motion Picture line, DC picked up the reins and produced a long-running series that remains the gold standard. Once DC’s run ended, the publisher that replaced it was Marvel, so when Marvel again lost the license in 1998, it’s poetic that its successor was once more DC—or rather its WildStorm imprint.
WildStorm produced licensed comics for such franchises as Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, World of Warcraft, The X-Files, and more, so Star Trek was a natural fit. It offered one-shots and miniseries based on The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager, along with a tie-in to Peter David’s New Frontier novels.
