Breaking Into…Book Publishing & Star Trek with Geoffrey Thorne

Following up on their 2nd interview, from last October, James Lott Jr. has brought Geoffrey Thorne back to the Black Hollywood Live studios to talk about his career.

Star Trek/Planet Of The Apes #2

Written by Scott Tipton & David Tipton Drawn by Rachael Stott Published by IDW Publishing with Boom! Studios PREVIOUSLY: Star Trek/Planet Of The Apes #1 Okay, you know I like to keep spoilers to a minimum, but I guess it’s no surprise for me to say that the Enterprise survived being ambushed by the Klingon…

Star Trek/Planet Of The Apes #1

Written by Scott Tipton & David Tipton Drawn by Rachael Stott Published by IDW Publishing with Boom!

What I like most about…

THE ULTIMATE QUESTION: KIRK OR PICARD?
