Image Comics Gets an Infusion of “Samurai’s Blood” with $1 Premiere Issue


From the press release:

Writer Owen Wiseman takes us on a journey of vengeance through Edo Japan as Nam Kim’s lines, Matthew Dalton’s inks, and Jessica Kholinne of Imaginary Friends Studios’ colors, paint a visceral world of majesty, struggle, honor, and deceit.

“In an era when lineage defined you, three teenagers must make their way through the world hiding their identities in order to find their destinies. As their village burns behind them, they are headed for a city they’d heard about only in stories. The three young samurai must now struggle to stay alive and take vengeance on the evil usurper who has destroyed the rest of their clan and the only world they’d ever known. Will they rise on the tides of vengeance, or will they fall on the swords of fate?”

With covers by Jo Chen (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER), SAMURAI’S BLOOD premiers on June 8th, 2011 with 32 full-color pages of story for only $1.00!

SAMURAI’S BLOOD (from Image Comics and Benaroya Publishing) promises to be an exciting ride which offers not only action and adventure but a true and honest exploration of the code of honor that defined the Samurai culture.

Diamond Order No.: APR110406.
