Star Trek DC v2 No. 16 Cover by Jerome K Moore

Star Trek has supported a number of comic book series, almost from the beginning of the original series. Gold Key, then Marvel had the licence, but it wasn’t until it landed at DC Comics that the property found its footing and enjoyed longer runs. A return to Marvel in the 90s was short lived, and IDW has been steadily producing quality series for a number of years now.

But back to DC. When they got to volume 2 of Star Trek, they had a young, new artist that could capture the spirit of the TV shows and movies with photorealistic accuracy. Since that time, Jerome K Moore has branched out into animation character design and other areas with continued success.

Here’s one of his best covers. Newly coloured, and with a number of the different publishers’ trade dress applied.
