Never pay heed to those claiming nerds, geeks, weebs or gamers hate female characters. No such problem ever existed in the fandom before the arrival of outsiders and once again our collective proves our devotion to exceptional characters by fully funding Shi: Return of the Warrior.
Not just fully funded by having also reached not one, but two stretch goals with the $50,000 one likely to be completed by week’s end over on IndieGoGo. Backers already are going to enjoy the die cast sticker and the Silver Age Trading card, and have begun suggesting further rewards for stretch goals. Let me throw my vote in for wall scrolls. My walls adorned with Shad and Slugbox need company.
With all the variant covers and swagage available in the campaign I now see the dark allure of comic collecting. An evil temptation that desires to drag my soul down a dark and destitute impoverished road, but for those that have already committed themselves to this path there are multiple variant covers and other benefits to add to your collection.
Fifteen years have passed since last Ana Ishikawa graced printed world. Over the years she got divorced from her disgraced husband Peter DeNyse and now lives a quiet life raising their teenage daughter Hotaru.
All that changes when Dr. You – a character that will be named by backers – arrives with horrifying news that her former antagonist Masahiro Arashi has escape the New York City mental Institution. Regressing to a younger and more violent version of himself as a result of his dementia, he now seeks revenge on the person responsible for his incarceration.
Terror soon grips Manhattan as a copy cat of the Shi killings surfaces killing people ever closer to Ana. Ana and Dr. You must team up and stop Arashi before he can fulfill his desire for revenge and reach her daughter Hotaru.
