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!
