Star Trek Comics Checklist

Sunday Comic Book - The Collectable Comics

Los Angeles Times syndicated comic strip, Star Trek, in comic book format Sunday newspaper inserts. Thanks to Mark Taylor for providing information about the newspapers that carried the Star Trek strip in Sunday comic books.

The Sunday Star Trek newspaper strips by Thomas Warkentin and others, were reformatted for publication in a comic book. The Sunday comic books were printed in color, on newsprint, bound, and inserted into the Sunday paper. Only a few newspapers distributed Sunday strips in this format. Most of these comics were probably tossed out with the rest of the newspaper. A few examples from US and Canadian newspapers follow.
