Trek Untold-Episode 92: Holding a Broken Mirror to Star Trek Comics with Scott & David Tipton
What happens when you get three comic lovers together in one virtual room? Absolute nerdy pandemonium. On this episode of Trek Untold, brothers Scott & David Tipton visit to discuss their work with IDW on Star Trek comics, including their current series based on the Star Trek TNG mirror universe, “The Mirror War,” which looks at the rise of Picard in the Terran empire along with some familiar faces acting in very different ways.
The siblings delve into Star Trek comic history with a look at the Gold Key comics and the DC comics versions, discuss how they got started in the comics profession and their mentors and influences in the industry, with great stories about Harlan Ellison along the way.
Then it's time for some Trek Talk as the Tiptons chat about some of their Trek books for IDW, including “Blood Will Tell,” “The Q Conflict, and the entire Mirror Universe saga they are currently writing. Topics include the challenges of building this Mirror universe world and how to write “awful characters,” how much Paramount has their hands on what happens in the comics, how they collaborate with each other and with their artists, advice on breaking into comics, and more!
