STAR TREK! 1967 Teen Magazine Love! Kirk! Spock! Bones!

With this week marking birthday celebrations for William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, I thought it was high time for another STAR TREK post! Didja know that the torrid teen mags of the 60s not only gave props to the Monkees, Stones, Beatles, and those musical mavens, but also to TV shows of the day like STAR TREK? Sure, the mag editors got a bit cutesy with their coverage, but some rare info and pics were bandied about all over these spreads! You got great studio pics of Cap'n Kirk, Scotty, Bones, Spock, and the rest of the galaxy-groovin' group, and little-seen candid pics, too! Click to enlarge these blips from the pages of 16 MAGAZINE and other fan pubs!

BONUS! Click below to enlarge this 1981 STAR TREK page from Marvel Comics! Drawn by Gil Kane (best know for his long stints on many superhero and horror books), this page appeared in the TREK comic when Marvel briefly had the license!
