An in-process page from the NEW Trekker story I am nearing the finish line on. “The Train to Avalon Bay” will see the light of day once the existing stories are all up on the trekkercomic.com website!
I’ve printed out the penciled page in blueline, and have found— to my surprise and joy— that the same goofy markers that I used to ink most of the original stories lo these many years ago, “Penstix” still seem to feel the best for Trekker stories. Like visiting old friends….
New TREKKER page today: page 2 of "Sins of the Fathers" continues the ruminations of Mercy’s grizzled, warrior mentor. And, need I point out, still in swanky, brand-spankin’ new colors by that ace,Jeremy Colwell!
Today’s Trekker page features Mercy’s harried police lieutenant uncle, meticulously rendered by the pinch-hitting Dave Dorman on art. Dave’s complete interlude story is being posted at trekkercomic.com. An eight-page island of refinement surrounded by my own artistic efforts.
Weekend TREKKER art: Dave Dorman’s breathtaking painting of Trekker from the original series issue 6. Couldn’t let the opportunity to share this slip by since trekkercomic.com is currently posting Dave’s rare black-and-white guest art for the short interlude story “Chinks”. Dave’s a fine artist and a fine friend. I was lucky to meet him back at the Kubert School a million years ago or so.
Once Dave’s story finishes its run at the end of the month, my own art returns—along with some news about developments with Trekker that have me pretty excited!
For your weekend TREKKER edification and/or diversion: the cover from DHP #21, where “Vincent’s Share” originally appeared some rich span years ago. The whole tale is currently being re-presented at trekkercomic.com, in my on-going posts of all the existing Trekkker tales, en route to brand-new ones. Check out, share, and enjoy. It’s the right thing to do.
Weekend trekkercomic.com shot: one of the “Spoiler Alert" rough pencil art pages from the story I am drawing currently, "The Train to Avalon Bay". As careful viewers will observe, it becomes a rough ride. And at some point, ravening mutated bears become involved.
