Trackers Earth is an award-winning outdoor education organization with a mission to inspire kids and families to explore, connect, and care for the natural world.

These experiences help kids develop resilience, confidence, and independence in all walks of life. Many of their camps teach these skills through fantastic live-action role-playing that takes kids out into the wilderness, including the official B.P.R.D. (aka Hellboy) Camp, which met with widespread acclaim. While Trackers has created non-fiction how-to skills books and short online and printed comics for kids at their summer camps, this is their first graphic novel with Dark Horse Books. 

In Trackers Presents: Captain Nick & the Explorer Society—Compass of Mems, Captain Nick and the kids race to find the mysterious Compass of Mems before their nemesis, the Contessa, gets her hands on it. Can they safeguard this ancient relic and foil her plans to conquer the world? Captain Nick adventures are packed with lost worlds, ancient treasures, time travel, dinosaurs, and butt-kicking girl assassins!
