DAYS MISSING creator Trevor Roth and executive editor Rod Roddenberry had a launch party last week at Meltdown Comics for the latest installment of their comic book franchise Days Missing — Grill Cheese truck and all!

“The original Missing told the tale of a solitary Earth-bound caretaker called The Steward. His job, in essence, was (and is) to “remove” days from history that he deemed harmful to the advancement of mankind. He would then sew time back together and catalog those particular missing days in a secret library. At the close of the original story arc, there were hints that The Steward might not be as alone as he had originally thought. The new Missing series introduces readers to a female character named Kestus, who may or may not be just as powerful as The Steward.” – http://www.usatoday.com

Both Harvard-Westlake grads and friends of the Truffle, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth are founder and COO of Roddenberry.com, respectively. On the Roddenberry website you can also find two amazing comic strips – one Gene’s Journal is about Gene Roddenberry’s (Rod’s dad) abduction by aliens as a child and the other Rod & Barry is about two aliens who come to dominate Earth but get caught up in sci-fi arguments on the couch instead. Also watch out for Questar, a TV show in development with Imagine TV that is based on a 70s pilot created by Gene Roddenberry. They also are in post-production on a documentary about the legacy left to us about Gene Roddenberry called www.treknationmovie.com.

Leonardo diCaprio, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Ben Stiller caricatures at The Palm in West Hollywood

What Celebrities have their face on the Palm’s Walls in West Hollywood?? Leonardo DiCaprio, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Ben Stiller, Rob Lowe, Christian Slater, the Cast of Mad Men, Kirk and Spock, Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble, and even Yogi Bear. About a year ago, we heard the Palm was considering a move to Canon Drive. Our immediate question was — how are they going to handle all those caricatures of regulars and celebrities layered all over the walls and ceilings — many dating back to the very, very old days.
