This March, BOOM! Studios are launching RONIN ISLAND, a brand new five-part samurai action epic from superstar writer Greg Pak (Firefly, Star Wars, Mech Cadet Yu) and fan favorite artist Giannis Milonogiannis (Old City Blues).
After a mysterious attack devastates a great swath 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 farmers, and Kenichi, son of a great samurai leader, have little in common except for a mutual disdain for each other. But these young warriors will have to work together when an army invades the island with shocking news: the Shogun has returned and the Island is expected to pay fealty in exchange for protection from a new threat…a mutated horde that threatens to wipe out all of humanity.
Speaking about the series, BOOM! Studios Editor Cameron Chittock said “Greg and Giannis have blended iconic elements of the samurai genre with supernatural horror to explore the best and worst instincts of human nature. They’ve crafted an ambitious story, filled with stunning action set pieces as our two young heroes grapple with what they believe in the face of an unthinkable war.”
RONIN ISLAND #1 arrives in stores on the 6th of March 2019 and features a main cover by Milonogiannis, along with variant covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Comics Spider-Man), award-winning artist Ethan Young (Tails), and fan favorite Kris Anka (Runaways).
