...(behind this amazingly Star Trek-esque cover by Dave Cockrum and Joe Sinnott)
Note the final blurb?
That's because these images are from the Seeker 3000 Premiere which reprinted the Marvel Premiere #41 tale on higher-quality paper than the original, so we presented images from that edition here!
The cover by Andrew Currie and Arthur Nichols was an updated recreation of the original Cockrum/Sinnott cover!
Except for the final blurb, not a single word or image was changed, so we felt it was the right choice for you blog readers!
Next Wednesday, before we begin re-presenting the never-reprinted sequel mini-series, we'll run two behind-the-scenes features!
One from the HTF FOOM Magazine #21 (1979) detailing what co-creators Doug Moench and Tom Sutton had in mind for future installments.
The other one's the backup from this very issue, showing the radically-different plans for the mini-series by new writer/artist team Dan Abnett & Ian Edgington and Currie & Nichols!
Trivia: Both Dave Cockrum and Tom Sutton became major contributors to Star Trek comics history!
Cockrum illustrated Marvel's adaptation of Star Trek the Motion Picture as well as covers and occasional interiors for the ongoing follow-up series which lasted 18 issues.
Tom Sutton was the primary illustrator for DC's Star Trek series when the property moved from Marvel to DC after Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan!
He also rendered the art for the adaptations of Star Trek III: the Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: the Voyage Home!
