"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Film, Comic Books
Mercy St. Clair, star of Ron Randall’s long-running Trekker series, has been busting heads and collecting bounties since the mid-1980s — so it’s no wonder she needs a vacation. But when things go terribly awry on the train to her resort destination, the guns come out.
Trekker: The Train to Avalon Bay collects stories from Dark Horse Presents #24–#29 featuring that fateful train ride, as well as a 22-page crossover with Karl Kesel’s Johnny Zombie that ran on the Thrillbent website. It also includes a large pin-up section, and courtesy of our friends at Dark Horse, we’re pleased to present some of those pin-ups today — by Dustin Weaver, Steve Lieber, Jesse Hamm, Ron Chan and Pete Woods.
Also, if you live in Portland, you can meet Trekker creator Ron Randall at Bridge City Comics from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight. They’ll have advanced copies of the book, which arrives next Wednesday everywhere else.
Check out the pin-ups below, and for more on Randall, Willamette Week recently did a very thorough profile on him.
