Com.x Ltd. announces, Bushido Wasabi, a heady mix of samurai philosophy and deadly gun-fu, set in the near-future.
London, UK – October 9th, 2010 – Com.x’s lone samurai will be slicing and dicing his way to shelves soon. If he can keep his mouth shut for long enough.
The ancient code of honour, known as Bushido Wasabi, states:
“There ain’t nothin’ a big gun, a sharp sword, and a smart mouth can’t fix.”
Ronin Ray Tashikawa is the embodiment of that philosophy. Making a living as a gun-for-hire, Ray’s latest job has left him facing a greater foe than he could ever have imagined. Is Ray strong enough to fight for what’s right, or will that smart mouth send him to his grave?
Created by Azurek Studios’ founders, Stefano Cardoselli and Rita Gorgoni, with words by Alex Rodrik and pencils/inks by Stefano Cardoselli and colours by Bill Key.
“We’ve been big fans of Stefano’s work for some time,” said com.x Publisher . “It’s fantastic that we’re now working with him and the team over at Azurek.”
