Description
 
Foreward by Warren Ellis
 
Since the beginning of time, there has existed a being whose interaction and interference with mankind has shaped human history. His powers of time and intellect have allowed his secrecy and resulted in certain days being absent from any historical record. Their stories have never been told. Their details have never been documented. Their existence is not remembered. But, the occurrences of these days have forever changed the course of humanity's evolution. These are the "Days Missing" from our existence, and they are about to be revealed.
 
From Publishers Weekly
 
Stewart is a lonely immortal who for hundreds of millions of years has been trying to breed peers from the material available to him on Earth. Blessed with the ability to wind back time one day whenever calamity strikes, he has been guiding mammals toward intelligence and wisdom ever since his first choice—dinosaurs—were taken from him by an event so large even he could not reverse it. In the millions of years since hominids first appeared, Stewart has erased apocalypse after apocalypse from an unknowing humanity's past, steering us past extinction and folly toward near-godhood. This volume recounts five such interventions, ranging from a doomsday plague to nanotech research gone horribly right. Stewart's great power is tempered by its limitations, and his potential for arrogance is tempered both by empathy and the fact that he does not always win—even his victories come with bitter costs. Although Days Missing takes liberties with history and it's a bit Eurocentric, it's still a tolerable entry in the Secret History genre. (Mar.)

Heir to the still-thriving Roddenberry empire, Gene’s son Rod shows business savvy here by moving beyond Star Trek memorabilia into sf comics. Created by Roddenberry Productions COO Trevor Roth, Days Missing is a masterfully executed new series with an irresistible premise. Standing outside earthly time, with the ability to review and erase entire days from history’s archives, a man known as the Steward watches over humanity, interfering at critical junctures when the species approaches self-destruction. In one episode, he confronts Swaziland’s fleeing king to prevent a lethal virus from spreading beyond the African nation’s borders. In another, he convinces Frankenstein author Mary Shelley to avoid meeting with a scientist engaged in human resurrection experiments, thereby deflating the scientist’s enthusiasm. A third episode follows the Steward’s efforts to subdue a particle physicist ambitious to create a mini black hole. Brought to vivid and colorful life by a selection of first-rate artists and writers, the Steward’s exploits constitute compelling entertainment with near-limitless story potential. --Carl Hays
