Justice League (Movie) Variant Covers (via Long Live the Bat)

Wanted TPB: Who's Who in Star Trek

Writer: Various
Artist: Various
Publisher: DC Comics (1987)
Includes: Who's Who in Star Trek #1 and 2

Who's Who in Star Trek was a two-issue comic book series released concurrently with DC Comics' Star Trek monthly, released in March and April 1987. The two 48-page issues depicted events and information up until about the point of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, with information about many of the DC supporting cast and guest stars from the comic series. Several canon characters and concepts were included in the stories, but the details were very much contradictory with televised and filmed Star Trek, the artists and writers took creative license with the source material.

Dork Note: The cover art by Howard Chaykin is sweet!

The logo itself (the Amazing World of…) was taken from an earlier publication: The Amazing World of Superman, Metropolis Edition 1973. 
Dork Note: Someone (like Twomorrow Publishing) needs to put this out as an oversized hardcover book.
