The latest comic book story based on the fan film PRELUDE TO AXANAR has just completed part one of its first chapter.
Last July, Axanar super-fan TREY McELWAIN released the first-ever Axanar comic story: the four-page (including cover) “Trial By Fire.” It was a huge hit among Axanar fans, many of whom hoped to be seeing more similar projects from Trey and his illustrator, DANIEL FU.
The wait lasted for ten months. In May, Trey continued what he called the “Tip of the Spear” saga, with each chapter focusing on a different battle from The Four Years War with the Klingons, as shown in Prelude. But now the comics would expand from just a few pages to stories with chapters, each about 5-7 pages long.
The first story took a closer look at the battle that began the Four Years War at “Arcanis IV.” Trey initially released the cover and first two pages of the story, with the intention of releasing one additional page per month for the foreseeable future. Part one of “Arcanis IV” would be seven pages, and there would be three parts. Then the next chapter would be “Inverness V,” also divided into multiple parts. So releasing one new comic story page per month could keep this going for years!
At least, that was the plan…
Daniel finished drawing the next three pages more quickly than anticipated, so rather then holding them back, all three were released last month. And then Daniel was fast again, so this month has the final two pages being released (see below), completing part one of “Arcanis IV.”
That’s the good news. Unfortunately, it could be a while before fans see part two.
