Â Days Missing Volume 2: Kestus explores the origins of the Earthâ€™s timeless defender, the steward
Hollywood, Calif. – Â The ongoing journey of the mysterious hero, The Steward, will continue this summer with the release of Days Missing Volume 2: Kestus from Archaia Entertainment and Roddenberry Productions. Eisner-award winning author Phil Hester returns for this second volume which promises to expand upon The Stewardâ€™s intriguing origins and what his existence means for mankindâ€™s destiny. Fans of the series, whoâ€™ve been waiting patiently since last yearâ€™s exciting conclusion of volume 1, will finally get their answers when Volume 2 is released in stores on July 15.
Days Missing Volume 2: Kestus continues the saga of The Steward, a mysterious being whose ability to â€œfoldâ€ days of time has resulted in critical human events being absent from our historical record. Their existence is not rememberedâ€¦ but the occurrences of these days have forever changed the course of our evolution. Since humanityâ€™s birth, The Steward has stood as a guiding force for our species. But now, he is not alone! The emergence of the ancient being, Kestus, may put everything he knows in question, and the future of those he means to protect in jeopardy. Illustrated by Russ Manning award winner David Marquez, Days Missing: Kestus spans the ages, featuring adventures about ancient China, the burning of Egyptâ€™s Alexandria, the 1969 moon launch, Y2K, and the Large Hadron Collider.
