The Newspaper Comics is a two-volume omnibus collecting all 20 TOS stories in the US Comic Strips series, which were featured in daily newspapers from 1979 - 1983 and produced by the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. The comics were restored by IDW Publishing's Library of American Comics imprint. The series also reprinted the Star Trek: The Motion Picture McDonald's Happy Meal Comic Adaptations that were printed on Happy Meals boxes as well as the Star Trek Video Communicator comic strip prizes found inside the boxes.

Publisher's descriptionEdit

Star Trek comic books have been published—and collected—almost continually since 1967. Astoundingly, the long-running newspaper comic strip has been largely overlooked by even the most devout fans. In 1979 Paramount commissioned the comic strip to pick up where the first film, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, left off and relate the adventures of the next five-year mission. The series, although it continued until 1983, had very limited distribution and soon faded into obscurity. What’s more, the strip has eluded comprehensive reprinting efforts ... until now. Thanks to thorough research by a handful of dedicated Star Trek collectors, the strips have been rescued from yesterday’s fading newsprint and restored.
