Dark Horse Comics is teaming up with the outdoor education organization Trackers Earth for the second time. In 2012, Trackers Earth offered a B.P.R.D. camp, based on the comics by Mike Mignola, in which “recruits” aged 9 to 17 investigated various haunted spaces. The campers learned skills ranging from basic survival to monster taxonomy and how to use paranormal instruments.

Having brought comics to camp, Dark Horse is now bringing camp to comics with Trackers Presents: Captain Nick & the Explorer Society—Compass of Mems, a kid-friendly action story about a group of campers trying to find a mysterious artifact before it falls into the wrong hands. The comic is written by Grey Allison, Michelle McCann, and Trackers Earth co-founder Tony Deis, with pencils by Thomas Pitilli, inks by Lukas Ketner, colors by Liezl Buenaventura, and letters by Troy Peteri. 

Trackers Presents: Captain Nick & the Explorer Society—Compass of Mems will go on sale on June 6, 2023, in bookstores and June 7, 2023, in comic shops, with an MSRP of $14.99.

Trackers Earth uses live-action role playing and other methods to teach youth and adults about nature and wilderness skills.
