cover_500This being the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, I thought I’d do something unique and unexpected and blow up the Enterprise run an old comic strip I created for Amazing Stories.

My editor at Dragon Magazine, the affable Dave Gross, landed the Amazing Stories gig, and asked me to come up with a strip. The idea was to chronicle the life of the average Redshirt in the Star Trek Universe a setting that was in no way based on Star Trek and therefore not actionable, nope.

I quite enjoyed Redshirts. Not sure what directions it would have gone off on, had its presence not doomed Amazing Stories and killed it off in a dino-like extinction-level event the magazine in that incarnation sadly not folded after nine issues.

Anyway, anyway, the point of this post is, I just discovered the “delete” command in Word Press I recently revisited these, and I don’t hate them as much as I thought I once did sort of kind of…almost…like ’em.

So here they all are. (Click on the images for the larger versions).

Happy 50th birthday, Star Trek!
