In an episode of Panel Borders recorded at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, and Portsmouth Comic Con, a trio of comic book artists discuss nostalgia and the future in their work.

In a Q and A hosted by me, John Freeman, artists Russell Walks and Rachael Stott discuss illustrating the adventures of the U.S.S. Enterprise in a variety of Star Trek books and comics. This was a fun chat with some great questions from the audience, so I hope you have time to give it a listen.
