    While there is a certain charm to the Gold Key books, IDW by a long shot.
    Beyond this world strange things are known...

    IDW, obviously, since it has better stories and better art than Gold Key.

    It is not fair to compare publishing companies from two different eras. It is like asking which car is better, the Ford Model T or Lincoln MKS? or which plane is better, a Fokker D.VII biplane or a F-117 Nighthawk?

    Gold Key is from an era where most comic book writers and artists are as good as crap. Storytelling has become more innovative, more mature and more sophisticated today than in 1970's.

    I've read them all and I would say the spot where IDW soars the most is the NuTrek 'verse. If you are a fan of that movie trilogy at all you should definitely check it out. And you'll get double the enjoyment if you are a fan of both it and TOS because of the classic episodes references.

    If you don't like the JJA\Kelvin 'verse and only the Prime stuff, they still have something good for you. Even Discovery! I'd love it if if they did some serious work in the ST2-6 film era, and DS9.
