The Kickstarter Report: ‘Shogun Rising’

Shogun Rising

Shogun RisingAs Fanboy Comics continues to inform its readers about exciting Kickstarter campaigns that are worthy of your hard-earned money, there may be rare opportunities when we will highlight campaigns that have already reached their desired goals.  One such campaign has come to our attention, and we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we did!  

Shogun Rising is a graphic novel collaboration between writer/producer Jonathan Mayor and Awesome Horse Studios‘ Marc Scheff, Noah Bradley, Aaron Miller, and Cynthia Sheppard.  With a story that features love, samurai, and zombies, what could be better?  Featuring 64 pages of art by seasoned comic layout artists and colorists including Tim Paul, Shogun Rising is an original story where a near-future Tokyo is the zombie apocalypse ground zero. Survivors are forced to flee to a remote samurai village. Hiroshi, a samurai prodigy, and Mizuki, the daughter of a ruthless Tokyo crime-boss, attempt to navigate the new world and their forbidden love. Tensions arise as cultures clash and the chances of survival diminish. And, yes, samurais will fight zombies. But, who will win? 

Having already reached its Kickstarter goal of $44,000, the graphic novel is guaranteed to print; however, there are exciting stretch goals in place, which include increasing the book by 20 pages!  Readers can see an interview with the creators (and sneak peeks of the artwork) in the below video!


Be sure to visit the Shogun Rising Kickstarter page, and don’t forget to check out the backer rewards, which include hardcover copies of the graphic novel, signed art prints, and a chance to be an executive producer on the book!  The campaign closes on Saturday, June 1st, so be sure to donate soon!
