American Mythology Snags Roddenberry Entertainment’s Days Missing Volume 3

American Mythology has announced the acquisition of the third and final installment of the critically acclaimed comic book series Days Missing by Roddenberry Entertainment.The series had previously been published by Archaia.

Days Missing: Enox will be released in late 2016 as a full-color hardcover book. In anticipation of the new graphic novel, American Mythology will re-release the first two volumes of the series in both digital and physical form. Days Missing: Enox comes from science-fiction leader Roddenberry Entertainment, who broke in to the world of comics six years ago with the Days Missing series and has since also released the dynamic graphic novel WORTH.

Days Missing: Enox concludes this saga of The Steward, an ancient being whose ability to “fold” time has resulted in critical human events being extracted from our memories and absent from any historical record. Their existence is not remembered, but the events of these days have forever changed the course of human evolution. In this epic finale, the haunting voice of Enox materializes, giving form to the Steward’s nemesis and unquestionable purpose to his existence. Civilization is caught in the crossfire as these two immortals engage in a battle that will forever decide our fate.

Days Missing and Days Missing: Kestus will be re-released digitally and printed versions will be available in-store, with Vol. 1 scheduled for July and Vol. 2 for August. American Mythology is currently running a Kickstarter Campaign to bring Days Missing: Enox to market.

Roddenberry’s Days Missing: Enox Available for Pre-Order Now!

Arcana Comics has announced Roddenberry Entertainment’s FINAL book in the Days Missing trilogy. Days Missing: Enox is now available for pre-order through Diamond Previews. They’ve also released some preview pages of the upcoming comic book.

The book is written by Phil Hester with artwork from Ransom Getty and a cover by Dale Keown himself.

Since before the dawn of man, there has existed an ancient and mystical being known as the Steward, whose interaction with mankind has shaped our history.  His ability to fold time has erased his existence from our memories and extracted the days of which he has been a part from our historical records.  His stories have never been told; his actions never documented. But his influence cannot be denied.

He traveled the seas with Cortez.  He saved humanity from the real Frankenstein.  He averted disaster and made possible one of man’s greatest achievements – going to the moon.  Now, in Days Missing: Enox, the Steward faces his greatest challenge, an immortal enemy of his own making.  Civilization is caught in the crossfire as the Steward and Enox engage in a battle that will forever decide mankind’s fate.  A story so epic, it breaks its own mold, chronicling several consecutive days of our champion’s existence as he is forced to choose between himself and humanity.



SDCC 2012 – Arcana Teams With Roddenberry at SDCC

Arcana Comics has announced a new partnership with Roddenberry Entertainment, launching with new books in the Days Missing series as well as a new book, Worth. Days Missing was previously published by Archaia.

The imprint will debut at SDCC 2012 with an exclusive preview book, available at Arcana Comics booth #2415 AND Roddenberry booth #2543 Exclusively. It’s FREE and limited to 5000 copies, so don’t miss your chance to pick up a copy.

Created by Roddenberry executive, Trevor Roth, Days Missing is “your opportunity to experience each accounting of the various 24-hour periods that, from the beginning of time, have been erased from human memory, but hidden safely away in the annals of The Steward’s library. Ironically, each story proves integral to humanity’s progression and essential to the evolutionary changes of our species. Each accounting will allow you to understand more of our own history and often explain the extraordinary changes between one day and the next.”

Worth is the “heartfelt story of Grant Worth, Motor City’s most iconic hero. During the 1960’s, Worth’s ability to control machines made him a legendary figure in Detroit. But, when Worth’s powers become obsolete because of society’s own progress, he is forced to find out what happens when a superhero can no longer be super.”

Review – Days Missing: Kestus #4


Bookmark and Share

Days Missing-Kestus 004 CoverIt took three issues for me to get into the series and the fourth continues in this positive direction by again giving me something I can relate to.  Days Missing: Kestus #4 almost makes it to present day, stopping on the eve of the new millennium as Y2K looms and anxiety was so high.  A fictional take of the disaster and what if is presented before us with a great twist.

Archaia and Roddenberry Productions continue the history-making series DAYS MISSING! January 1st, 2000—the dawn of a new century came and went without incident. Or did it? On a day of fear and uncertainty, excitement and anticipation, with billions of dollars spent in preparation and humanity’s way of life hanging in the balance, The Steward encounters a true-life super villain bent on bringing the horror of Y2K to the world. Since the dawn of mankind, the enigmatic Steward has guided our destiny in solitude. But now he’s not alone—the immortal woman known as Kestus leads a secret society capable of predicting The Steward’s comings and goings. How will they affect the impending Y2K disaster? DAYS MISSING: KESTUS #4 adds another chapter to the thrilling exploits of The Steward, a being whose ability to “fold” days of time has resulted in critical human events being absent from our historical record. Although their existence is not remembered…the occurrences of these days have forever changed the course of Earth’s evolution!

The series is about mankind and our penchant for good and bad.  It questions the existence of destiny, fate and God.  Exactly what you’d expect from something with the Rodenberry name on it.  It has many of the same themes you’ve seen in their series like Star Trek.

The series has one more issue to go and I have no idea what to expect.  We’ll see what the final issue has in store, but so far it’s got me interested and looking forward to what’s next.

Review – Days Missing: Kestus #3


Bookmark and Share

Days Missing Kestus 003 CoverAll it takes is for something I can relate to or some cool bit of story telling to instantly hook me for a series, even one I was wavering on.  Days Missing: Kestus #3 got me to completely to come around in this series just by setting this issue during the Apollo 11 mission.  I’m a NASA and space geek, so this was an easy hook for me.

Archaia and Roddenberry Productions continue the history-making series DAYS MISSING! Since the dawn of mankind, the enigmatic Steward has guided our destiny in solitude—but now he knows he is not alone! An immortal woman named Kestus has also been watching humanity…with a suspicious eye. It’s 1969, and mankind is poised to take one giant leap. The Steward does everything in his power to make sure the Apollo 11 moon landing is a success…but a shadowy saboteur stands in his way. DAYS MISSING: KESTUS #3 adds another chapter to the thrilling exploits of The Steward, a being whose ability to “fold” days of time has resulted in critical human events being absent from our historical record. Although their existence is not remembered…the occurrences of these days have forever changed the course of Earth’s evolution!

The issue revolves around the sabotage of that important space mission and the Steward’s mission to prevent it.  I still might not get it all, but as a stand alone issue, this one was beyond solid.  There were a lot of possibilities of where the issue could go, but it went in an entertaining direction.

I’m still not completely sold on the series, but as a stand alone issue, this one is solid.  It’s fun, entertaining and creative.  A definite buy.

Review – Days Missing: Kestus #2


Bookmark and Share

Days Missing Kestus 002 CoverI’m a bit perplexed on exactly what my thoughts are about Days Missing: Kestus #2.  After reading the first issue, I really thought I’d need to read more to get a good feel for it.  And after this second issue, I need to read even more.  Phil Hester is a great writer, but there’s just something that hasn’t quite clicked for me here.

Archaia and Roddenberry Productions continue the history-making series DAYS MISSING! Since the dawn of mankind, the enigmatic Steward has guided our destiny in solitude. But during his attempt to prevent raging fires from consuming Egypt’s legendary Library of Alexandria, he discovers he’s not alone. A mysterious figure from the Steward’s past reveals herself, and alters The Steward’s existence in ways he never thought possible.

It’s the burning of Alexandria this time and the Steward must try to save as much as he can.  Other than discovering he’s not alone, I’m a bit perplexed by the series.  It’s like a series of events, and only a panel or two really deal with the big picture story.

It’s a series I like, but can’t quite recommend as it’s not a pick up and read.  There’s a big picture here, but I still can’t quite see it.
