(written from a Production point of view)
The Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection is a graphic novel compilation partwork that is currently available in a number of countries worldwide.
The series encompasses a wide range of content and includes Gold Key's first Star Trek comic books initially published in 1967, the British comic strips, and comic books from DC, IDW, Malibu, Marvel, Paramount, Tokyopop, and WildStorm. Movie adaptations will also be covered in the series.
Once combined, the spines of the full set of volumes will form a graphic of a fleet of starships, as seen in the image to the right. Most books incorporate the content of a modern Star Trek graphic novel with a classic comic book from the franchise's past.
As "Special Editions", the collection produces stand-alone "Crossover" volumes where Star Trek has teamed up with another entertainment franchise in a comic series, such as Doctor Who and Planet of the Apes. Also released as Special Editions, a number of limited-run comic series are collected here as "Miniseries" compilations.
Photonovels and decorative novelty gifts are also produced for the collection.
