Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 2 Reviews
These are soooo stupid and pulpy but definitely funny to read!
I started with Volume 1, which included 6 issues by 2 different artists. In Volume 2 and going forward, artwork is completely created by Alberto Giolitti, and you can see how comfortable the artist becomes with the characters through these issues. Yes, the stories are kind of hokey and don't have quite the same substance as the Star Trek original television series. But for me, the artwork more than makes up for a somewhat predictable and sometimes silly story. Fantastic colors throughout. Looking forward to reading Volume 3!
Even though this feels a bit truer to The Original Series than the first volume, it is still difficult to get past the erroneous green shirts. There are some fun adventures including encounters with pirates and what appear to be the founding fathers initially. But not much that really grabs me a whole lot. It is a bit odd seeing that, according to one of these stories, Anton Yorke is the 45th president of the U.S., and we're about to witness the election of the 45th president, with no Anton Yorke in sight. The name also reminded me of Anton Yelchin, may he rest in peace.
These early 70s comics are a delightful read, with artwork getting increasingly better. However, the stories remain silly and with slim connection to the TV series, such as voodoo practitioners, mad scientists, space pirates, and so on.
the first couple of stories are week. but the late ones are good.
