Standard Orbit 105: Infinite Chang / by Drew Stewart

Ongoing Comics With Sarah Gaydos & Mike Johnson.

We spent a lot of time in the last 2 years talking about IDW's "Star Trek Ongoing" comic and comparing it to the original episodes. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew are joined by Ongoing editor Sarah Gaydos and writer Mike Johnson to talk about how comics get made. We talk about timelines, contingencies, academies, legacies, and how right your hosts are about more than you think.
