Ronin Island

Calendar Comics Written by Greg Pak Ronin Island

2019.03.06 – RONIN ISLAND #1 in stores today!

Thrilled about RONIN ISLAND #1 finally hitting comic book shops today, and huge thanks to everyone who’s picking it up and spreading the word! The book’s drawn by Giannis Milonogiannis with colors by Irma Kniivila, letters by Simon Bowland, and editing by Cameron Chittock and Amanda LaFranco and tells the story of a pair of young warriors thrust into crisis when their 19th century pan-Asian island community is confronted by an invading army — and a terrifying, mutated threat.

The reviews are blowing my mind — check ’em out!

“Pak brilliantly balances these elements in a concise and entertaining comic. Indeed, fans of stories like Momotaro (Peach Boy) will gravitate to RONIN ISLAND for its lush storytelling and illustration. However, the comic offers excitement for all.” — Comicsverse

Ronin Island #1 is a devastating strong opener of an issue. No panel is wasted, no narrative beat feels unused. It’s a quick, rapid-fire page turner that slowly invites the reader into the world and shines a little more light each time your eyes devour the stellar storytelling and beautiful art.” — Black Nerd Problems

Ronin Island starts as well as anything I’ve ever read.” — The Brazen Bull

Please do ask your local retailer to hold a copy for you today!

Please pre-order RONIN ISLAND #1 today!

I’m thrilled to announce that I’m writing RONIN ISLAND, a new creator-owned comic for BOOM drawn by the brilliant Giannis Milonogiannis with gorgeous colors by Irma Kniivila and sweet letters by Simon Bowland — and the final day to preorder with your local comic shop is this coming Monday, February 11! Here’s the solicit:

After a mysterious attack wipes out the major cities of 19th century Japan, Korea, and China, survivors from all three lands find refuge on a hidden island and build a new society. Hana, the orphaned daughter of Korean peasants, and Kenichi, son of a great samurai leader, have little in common except for a mutual disdain for the other. But these young warriors will have to work together when an army invades the island with shocking news: there is a new Shogun and the Island is expected to pay fealty in exchange for protection from a new enemy…a mutated horde that threatens to wipe out all humanity.

I’m super proud of the book and very much hope you’ll check it out. For more about the series, check out the interview at Sequential Tart. And you don’t have to take my word for it — check out what Central Maine’s Editors Note comic shop had to say!
