May 2013 Star Trek comics solicits
When I reviewed Star Trek #17 last week, I mistakenly reported that the ongoing series would end with issue #21, but I’m happy to say I was wrong. The series continues in May with a story that follows on the heels of Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness.

In case you didn’t see them when they were first published 25 years ago, here are the covers for the first Next Generation comics and a page of original art from issue #1. No Star Trek crew has ever had such well-defined musculature nor such flexible bodies, as those drawn by Pablo Marcos and friends.
