Star Trek: The Classic UK Comics, Vol. 1 -- SPOTLIGHT

Harry Lindfield, Jim Baikie, Mike Noble (w & a) • Harry F. Lindfield (c)

In 1969, six months before the Star Trek TV series premiered in England, British comics readers were introduced to the characters in an original comic-book series. The stories were serialized, generally 2 to 3 pages at a time, in 257 weekly magazines spanning five years and 37 storylines. These extremely rare comics have never been published in the United States. Star Trek fans will quickly note that the comics were not written with strict adherence to Star Trek's core concepts. But it's precisely that "offness" that makes them so eminently readable and deserving of a proper reprinting. They're unique in the annals of Star Trek and fans have gone without them for far too long.

Paracuellos, Vol. 1 -- SPOTLIGHT

Carlos Gimenez (w & a & c)

Paracuellos is a work of great courage, created at a time when telling the truth about Spain's political past could get one killed. It is arguably the most important graphic memoir ever created in comics. Carlos Gimenez's autobiographical account of the plight of children in post-World War II Fascist Spain has won virtually every comics award in Europe, including "Best Album" at the 1981 Angoulême Festival, and the "Heritage Award" at Angoulême in 2010.

In the late 1930s when Spanish fascists led by Franco, and aided by Hitler and Mussolini, overthrew the elected government, almost 200,000 men and women fell in battle, were executed, or died in prison. Their orphaned children -- and others ripped from the homes of the defeated -- were shuttled from Church-run "home" to "home" and fed a steady diet of torture and disinformation by a totalitarian state bent on making them "productive" citizens. Carlos Gimenez was one of those children. In 1975, after Franco's death, Carlos began to tell his story. Breaking the code of silence proved to be a milestone, both for the comics medium and for a country coming to terms with its past.

An illustrated essay by Carmen Moreno-Nuño, Associate Professor of Hispanic Studies at the University of Kentucky, places the comics in historical perspective.

•"The stories transcend just being about a historical moment in Spain. Their humanity will speak to everyone. The stories are heartbreakers, but Carlos never loses his sense of humor." -- William Stout
