[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.

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.

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.”

It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
