In this collection we see Kirk vs. Kirk, yet another twin story. The "Ice Journey","The Mimicking Menace","The Final Truth" and a few more 70's classics. If you don't mind some of the leaps in logic, they are fun to read. Kirk does not look like Shatner in this collection. There are a few panels that bear a passing resemblance to him. However it is hard to capture his likeness because Shatner has no outstanding features other than his round nose and high forehead.
Some of the stories are outrageous and I have to believe that Irwin Allen's sci fi high concept shows at the time might have influenced the plots. If you remember Lost in Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Land of Giants were in syndication at some local stations. That is all sci fi fans had to look at if the budget was over $1.98. I have to look back and whince sometimes at what Irwin Allen got away with on his TV shows. If you saw the first three or four episodes of each series then you saw them all. The plots and stories endlessly repeated.
All I have to say is I am very glad Irwin never got the chance to produce Star Trek! Mr. Spock would have been red with giant ears.
On to the comic collection; if you don't take it too seriously, it brings back a lot of memories. I'd only recommend it if you had seen them before back in the seventies. The plots and stories do not hold up. But the message is clear to the heart of the show.
