Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Start Time: 07:00PM End Time: 10:00PM
One of Dark Horse Comics' premier sci-fi adventure epics returns August 7 with the release of Ron Randall's Trekker Omnibus, collecting the complete adventures of bounty hunter Mercy St. Clair and featuring more than 60 pages of brand-new color material! Come to the Portland TFAW August 7 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. for a signing and release party with creator Ron Randall (Supergirl, Silence & Co.). Complimentary food and beer (for those 21+ with valid ID) provided.
Trekker debuted in 1986 at the dawn of Dark Horse Comics, setting the standard for fresh, innovative comics that reached outside the mainstream. Centering on the exploits of Mercy St. Clair, a tough-as-nails bounty hunter navigating a violent society, Randall introduced a groundbreaking female character who electrified fans of all ages.
"It's of stuff like Trekker that revolutions are begun," said Gail Simone (Batgirl, Wonder Woman), who wrote the foreword for the Trekker Omnibus. "A female character that is sexy but not sexualized, that is tough but not without flaws and doubts, and that is dangerous but not without compassion."
"Trekker is the most demanding and rewarding project I've worked on in my career," said creator Ron Randall, a member of Portland's Periscope Studio. "I'm very proud of the work Dark Horse and I have done to make this collection definitive for the long-time Trekker fan, and also the perfect introduction to the character. Getting the chance to present all these original stories in one unified work is absolutely the highlight of my professional life."
Celebrate the triumphant return of Mercy St. Clair at the Portland TFAW August 7: meet Ron Randall, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and pick up your copy of the Trekker Omnibus!
