from the American Mythology Press Release
[Baltimore, Maryland] – Roddenberry fans and those of comic book veteran Phil Hester rejoice! The long awaited third installment of the Days Missing saga, DAYS MISSING: ENOX, is officially being released this fall. It’s been over five years coming and anxious readers have been waiting to learn the fate of the Steward’s legendary journey. The first two volumes of the critically acclaimed series garnered high praise from science fiction fans and industry professionals alike, and the latest installment brings the same group of immensely talented creators back to conclude the tale.
Under license from Roddenberry Entertainment, American Mythology Productions (AM) will release Days Missing: Enox as a full-color, 136-page hardcover original graphic novel celebrating the series’ epic conclusion. The book is a Featured Item in the comics section of the July 2016 edition of PREVIEWS from Diamond Comic Distributors, listed under “American Mythology Productions,” on page #280. It carries a $19.99 U.S. cover price. American Mythology will also be re-releasing the first and second books in the series, Days Missing, and Days Missing: Kestus, for fans who want to collect the whole saga.
Since the beginning of time, there has existed a being whose interaction and interference with mankind has shaped human history. His powers of time and intellect have allowed his secrecy and resulted in certain days being absent from any historical record. Their stories have never been told. Their details have never been documented. Their existence is not remembered. But, the occurrences of these days have forever changed the course of humanity's evolution. These are the "Days Missing" from our existence, and they are about to be revealed.
The 3rd volume will feature series writer, Phil Hester, who penned the previous installments, and the interior art is provided by Felipe Watanabe with the cover by Dale Keown. Hester is excited to bring the next chapter of the tale to the fans worldwide that have followed along and are ready for this spectacular conclusion to finally be told.
“When you think science fiction, what name immediately comes to mind?” asked Michael Bornstein, American Mythology’s Publisher. “Gene Roddenberry, of course! As a pioneer and icon in the genre, Roddenberry Entertainment is carrying on his work by providing new worlds to be enjoyed by generations to come. Days Missing is a property that doesn’t come around every day, not even every year so, as a publisher, we literally pounced on the opportunity to release the third book in the series. We’re very honored for Days Missing: Enox to have found a home with us here at American Mythology, and we’re ecstatic to be able to bring this wonderful series the recognition it deserves.”

SINK #3 (Comix Tribe, December 20, 2017 release date) “A Head Full Of Wasps”. Story by John Lees. Art and Colours by Alex Cormack. Letters by Shawn Lee. Logo by Tim Daniel. Sink #3 will make you see red. Blood red. It’s splashed all over the pages of this story, seeping into each and every panel, even before the violence begins. “A Head Full Of Wasps” speaks to the buzzing that occurs in so many brainpans in these troubled and violent times - - and the red that is visualized when some of us experience injustice, brutality, cruelty, or abuse and then seek retribution, revenge, and bloody justice. If only everyone could read this story, and then remember it whenever their cheeks flush with anger - - and think before they act. Yeah, I’m a pipe dreamer. I also just set out to write a review. Don’t know why I’m treating SINK #3 like this is a morality fable. Have you ever read a simple but well-written story that leads to your thinking outside the box about oth…
