I’ve just completed these 3 pages of inks, and I’m taking the unusual step of posting them all here early because working on them brought something clearly to mind that I wanted to share directly with you– the kind people who have found and decided to follow the adventures of Mercy.
I did most of this inking over the last couple of days, when I had the chance to focus on Trekker more than I have for some time. It felt great. I’d like MORE times like these. Because those chunks of time when I don’t have to keep stealing time away from other, paying jobs allow me get the work done both the best and the quickest.
Some of you may not know that no one is paying me to produce Trekker. You may not know how much time I put into writing and drawing the stories with all the craft and passion I can muster on each page. And you may not know that in addition to producing the stories, the task of promoting them and getting the word out about them falls on my shoulders alone. Frankly, it’s a full-time job and then some.
And, since no one is paying me to do any of that, what makes those chunks of time possible is support directly from the readers of the series. Those links just to the right of this week’s page lead to various ways you can contribute to Mercy’s cause, whether that’s through Patreon, or by buying the books, or with a direct, one-time donation. If you have the wherewithal, I hope you’ll check them out. Either way, enjoy this glimpse of an upcoming sequence, and thanks for following Mercy’s continuing stories. I’m still having the time of my life producing them, and the best remains yet to come!
I’m pleased and honored to be a guest at this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con. This will be my first year there as well as my first convention since the release of the Omnibus, so I’m pretty well stoked for a great time. Baltimore has begun a terrific event at the show. Each year they pick a fine creator-owned property and do a “Tribute Art Book” to it. This year they has chosen Stan Sakai’s classic Usagi Yojimbo! Trekker and Usagi Yojimbo share similar histories, both with long roots going back to the early days of Dark Horse comics. And Stan is both a great guy and a wonderful comics creator. So of course I had to find a way to put Mercy and the samurai bunny together:If you make it to the show, be sure to pick up one of the books. And come by and say howdy!
An enthusiastic crowd greeted the release of the Trekker Omnibus Wednesday evening! ! Many thanks to the fans, and to the folks at Things From Another World for giving Trekker’s return to print a fantastic launch! If you couldn’t be at the event, you can still pick up the book at fine comic shops everywhere. This fall I’ll be traveling to several shows (soon to be announced here), so hunt me down for signing and a free sketch in your copy!
