Literary Treks 119: Unique Opportunity

New Frontier: The Returned, Part 3
Interview with author Peter David!






There are very few authors out there that can say they have worked for DC Comics, Marvel, and Dark Horse Comics, and have written almost every major comic book character at some point in their career and, to top it all off, have gotten to play in the Star Trek universe, creating completely new characters and working with the established to build his own Trek playground.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther welcome Peter David to talk about The Returned series. We discuss his favorite working experiences and characters, the genesis of New Frontier, creating original characters, the tone of New Frontier, The Returned, writing Calhoun, the return of Q, the Dayan, what’s next for New Frontier, where to find Peter online, and our final thoughts.

In the news segment, we talk about New Visions #8 as well as the release of the new James T. Kirk book.
