NEW ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL’S COVERS HEAD TO THE PRINTER MONDAY

Crusade Comics’ latest Indiegogo tops $140,000.00 and bringing the small publisher’s #NoFanLeftBehind totals (including Kickstarter) to over $225K. With that, Sakura is now the Long Island, New York-based studio’s OGN to date!

Momentum continues on the production side of Shi: Sakura as well, as the book’s cover files are being sent to the printer for proofing next week. “We’re dropping the covers first so we can expediate the printing process.” Stated Shi-creator Billy Tucci. “And in the next few weeks we will get all the book’s final interiors in for proofing as well.”

Due to shortages in both supply and staff, Sakura is scheduled to be printed in September. By getting the covers all out first, and printed early, Crusade can cut into the production timetable.

SHI: SAKURA!

From New York to Nagasaki, this action-packed, 72-page, full-color, psychological samurai thriller reunites Shi-creator Billy Tucci and writer Steven Peros with artist Gardenio Lima, and colorist Brian Miller.

Upon learning that she is full-blooded Japanese, Ana Ishikawa has unlocked a danger that she’s not prepared for… her birth mother’s wrath that comes in the form of an automaton-like killer, bent on destroying all that she loves.

At the same time, her teenage daughter, Hotaru, having survived the trauma in Shi: Haikyo, is empowered by the experience and succumbs to an inner violent streak with savage repercussions.  

The final chapter to the Return of the Warrior trilogy sets the final fiery stage for a samurai showdown of epic proportions at New York’s Brooklyn Botanic Garden that will change Crusade Comics canon forever!

Crusade Comics will also be offering other Shi-related items including original art, prints, shirts, commissions, and special editions, including the ashcan to Crusade’s next great adventure, John Broglia and Billy Tucci’s long-awaited sequel to Zombie-Sama. Zombie-Sama 2: Dorm of the Dead!
