Teaser Tuesdays—Star Trek: The Newspaper Comics

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. We’re to post two random sentences from our current reads. Mine happens to be from Star Trek: The Newspaper Comics

Both sentences are from Spock, referring to chess: 

“I wouldn’t call it brooding . . . But I have estimated the probability of your beating me at 47.3%”  —p. 122. 

Most people don’t remember the Star Trek comic strips that started in 1979.  Since the stories would continue from one comic strip to the next, this collection has the feel of a graphic novel, composed of a number of short stories.  As the cover above shows, the artwork was more than decent for a daily strip.

That's a very Spock-like quote! Good (and unusual) Teaser.
My Teaser today is from KEEPSAKE.

I don't remember these. How long did they last?

Judging from the titles, the comic strip lasted until 1983. I'm only about a fourth of the way through the first volume, so I haven't seen the comic strips I remember reading back then.
