Somebody thinks I need to stop drawing Trekker for just a sec.
New TREKKER story, “Jekka” blasts into high gear with the page 2-3 spread posting today.
Up here, the air is different. It smells of life.
What you see is the mountain region Trollheimen, which means “home of the trolls”.
Brings back very fond memories of my visit to Trondheim and Rindal Valley this past February. Thanks for posting these beautiful shots.
One of the pleasant new volumes awaiting you on this NCBD is my own all-new TREKKER tale, "The Train to Avalon Bay", featuring the dauntless Mercy St. Clair. It’s a shiny little tome that Dark Horse and I have filled with as many treats as we could squeeze between two covers. It is my sincere hope that many of you will find it diverting, and possibly even moving. Please remember on this and each NCBD to shop enthusiastically and responsibly!
New story launches today. It opens quietly, but will lead to huge changes for Mercy. Excited to finally be getting this tale out!
The final page from “The Train to Avalon Bay” is up today. Here’s the page without text, so you can feast your peepers on Jeremy’s wonderful colors unhindered. The conclusion of the tale’s posting coincides rather nicely with the release of the collected story in the Dark Horse Trade Paperback! Originally set to come out this Wednesday, a last-minute shipping issue has pushed it back till next Wednesday April 16th instead— but do not fear! This Friday April 11 we are now hosting the pre-release party at Bridge City Comics, where you’ll be able to pick up the shiny volume and have it signed and sketched in before it even hits the stands! See you there!
Today I reveal the final pin up for the Avalon Bay TPB: this stunning image by comics great Pete Woods! Pete has been delivering ground-breaking art to comics for years, with remarkable runs on titles from Deadpool, and Robin, through more recent stints on Catwoman, Superman: World of New Krypton and more recently yet, Vibe. Track him down on Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter!
Also, the Avalon TPB comes out Wednesday April 9, and I’ll have a Release Party at Portland’s Bridge City Comics. Come by and get a copy signed and sketched in!
How cool is this?? One of my studio mates is the astonishing Dustin Weaver, who has contributed this rather spectacular portrait of Mercy to the Avalon Bay Pin-up section. And hey— the Avalon Bay TPB comes out NEXT WEDNESDAY!!
Dustin’s amazing flair for epic sci-fi can be seen in his two web comics, Sagittarius A* , and Amnia Cycle. Oh— that’s when he’s not busy doing little jobs drawing covers and stories on books like S.H.E.I.L.D., Avengers, and Inhumans! You can follow all of Dustin’s colorful adventures from his Blog.
A new page of The Last Diplomat is up on the site!
Following ECCC 2014, I feel like Mercy on today’s posted page: exhausted yet victorious! Thanks to all for the enthusiastic support of the Return of TREKKER!
