The Classic UK Comics, Volume 1 was the first of three hardcover omnibus collections which restored and reprinted the UK comic strips series. The volume was produced by The Library of American Comics, published in April 2016 by IDW Publishing, and was the first release of these stories in the United States.

This volume reproduced the first 17 weekly comic strip story arcs as well as the first annual story. Stories were restored by Lorraine Turner. The book established new titles for stories that were originally published without a title.

Publisher's description[edit | edit source]

From the dust jacket
In 1969, six months before the Star Trek TV series premiered in England, British comics readers were introduced to the characters in an original comic-book series.
The stories were serialized, generally 2 to 3 pages at a time, in 257 weekly magazines spanning five years and 37 storylines. These extremely rare comics have never been published in the United States. Star Trek fans will quickly note that the comics were not written with strict adherence to Star Trek's core concepts. The Enterprise frequently traveled outside our galaxy and the crew committed many violations of the never-mentioned Prime Directive along the way. Spock was not the voice of reason; rather he shouted most of his lines and often urged Kirk (or "Kurt", as his name was misspelled in early issues) to shoot first and ask questions later. But it's precisely that "offness" that makes them so eminently readable and deserving of a proper reprinting. They’re unique in the annals of Star Trek and fans have gone without them for far too long.
