Featured this time is a "Crazy" magazine spoof of "The Wrath of Khan" from issue #92, published in December of 1982. Another winner of a cover by Bob Larkin, whose likenesses and accurate details never failed to delight a fan like me. And the inside spoof art is not too shabby this time, either. The last post I made with their ST:TMP story was merely a retread of old "Mad" art based on the TV show with a bit of the new movie script sprinkled in. But this time, the ships, sets, unforms and plot are represented well. It's a bit strange, though, that although the cover does give away Spock's death as a plot point, the story inside doesn't even touch on it. The last page feels rushed, in fact, as if there should have been more but they ran out of time. Anyway, enjoy!
Below, two more of the 5 x 7 collector's cards.

Below, a couple of collector's cards, 5 x 7 in size. I'll feature more from the set as I post clipping on this particular film in the series.

Well, it didn't come on a cloud in great glory to judge the living and the dead, or to usher in a new age of peace and righteousness, but it did usher in a new age of good reviews and happiness in the lives of Trekkers everywhere.
Posted this time from the old scrapbook is an article on "The Wrath of Khan" from the Rolling Stone magazine, published in July of 1982. It was so much more rewarding reading the reviews of this movie than those of the last, ST:TMP.
As an aside, you may have noticed a slowdown on posts here and on my other blogs. I've been devoting myself to finishing a personal project, and now that it's done, I'm going to try to get back to a fairly regular schedule of posting again. Thanks for sticking around!
