Anthony Montgomery’s Miles Away (Updated)

Recently Anthony Montgomery released his original graphic novel, Miles Away, published by Anarctic Press — and this Saturday, May 4, he will join us live on-air to chat about it at 3pm PT / 6pm ET / 11pm GMT!

Known to Star Trek fans as “Travis Mayweather” on Enterprise, Anthony Montgomery has created Miles Away, a new comic book series featuring a seemingly average teenager swept up in an intergalactic adventure:

16-year-old Maxwell Miles is like most teenagers — full of questions and insecurities. For ten years, one question has haunted him: “Why did I lose so much, so early in my life?” With both parents disappearing under mysterious circumstances and a guardian who doles out vague and limited information, Max’s thirst for knowledge is rarely quenched. Unlike most teenagers, Max develops a superhuman ability, he is enlisted by a shadowy organization to battle evil around the globe, he allies with two aliens on the run, he saves their planet from destruction, he prevents an alien invasion and he has to maintain a solid grade point average despite having the laziest study partner on Earth. Max learns the hard way that some questions should never be asked because the truth hurts much more than curiosity.

Montgomery will be appearing in-person at Emerald Knights comic shop in Burbank, California on May 4 from 11am to 5pm Pacific to meet fans and sign copies of his graphic novel. A portion of the proceeds from this appearance will benefit Shriner’s Children’s Hospital. During this event, Anthony will join Trek Radio live on-air for a special interview at 3pm PT to discuss Miles Away and his journey of creating and launching a new sci-fi comic book series.

While May 4th is a special day for many sci-fi fans, this year it’s also Free Comic Book Day, when participating comic book shops around the world give away comic books for free to celebrate the medium of illustrated storytelling. Stop by your local comic book shop and pick up special FCBD issues, and while you’re there support your comic book shop and the comics industry with a few purchases.

Be sure to purchase your copy of Miles Away, and follow Anthony Montgomery on Twitter and Facebook!
