We’re about to kick into a new era at Trekkercomic.com! Next week, “Trial By Fire” comes to its somber conclusion. And in doing so, it sets the stage for the launch on the following Monday, May 13 of “The Train to Avalon Bay”, the first of the brand-new, never-before-seen stories that will continue Mercy’s adventures. This is an event I have planned for from the day I launched the website, and I couldn’t be happier to be picking up Mercy’s story right where “Trial” leaves off. With Jeremy Colwell on board for the colors, and Ken Bruzenak contributing his flare with the lettering, the new tales get off to a great start. In the story, Mercy and Molly depart for a “vacation”, but it wouldn’t be a Trekker story if things didn’t soon go horribly wrong. In the end, there’s a race against death, another emotionally wrenching conclusion for Mercy, and wheels are put in motion that will have life-changing consequences for our favorite bounty hunter. You will want to be here!

Meanwhile, the TREKKER OMNIBUS, collecting all of the tales features to this point on the website, is coming the August from Dark Horse and me– new color, extra features and all. I hope you’ll order it on line or pick it up from your favorite comic shop. The terrific Gail Simone foreword is worth the price of admission by itself, and if you’re a Trekker fan at all, this collection is built to satisfy!
