I stopped by Golden Apple Comics in L.A. Wednesday to help support Rod Roddenberry and partner Trevor Roth launch Issue 1 of their comic mini-series Days Missing that Trevor created, but they hardly needed me! The shop was hoppin' with plenty of fans and guests alike, scooping up freebie Trek posters and Days Missing T-shirts and snapping up copies of #1 to be signed...and incidentally celebrate what would have been Gene's 88th birthday. The five-book issue is not Trek, but Trevor envisioned it to carry forth the "Roddenberry vision" in an all-new story about a being who subtly influences human history, produced in tandem with Archaia Comics. Here's the standard cover (left) by Dale Keown, plus limited edition cover by Frazer Irving, available at cons and other events; Phil Hester wrote #1 with Frazer's art. Rob Levin is editor, with Rod, Trevor and Stephen Christy as executive editors.

Tim "Tuvok" Russ (foreground) is almost swallowed by the crowd midway through the evening.
Trevor takes time to answer questions with interested fans ...
... while Rod thanks Mike and Densie Okuda for dropping by. Apparently, the president had a presence as well!
Days Missing #1 from Roddenberry/Archaia is available now.
