Who is ZOMBIE-SAMA?!?

Imagine the horror when sushi delivery boy Jim Okami realizes the citizens of his small town are literally being eaten alive by nuclear-contaminated Zombies! 

As all Hell breaks loose around him, the desperate former slacker grabs the lone katana from above the restaurant's cash register and is heroically reborn as teen sensation ZOMBIE-SAMA!

Now armed with sword and chainmail armor conveniently appropriated from a local scuba shop, our hero sets out to save his friends from the irradiated flood of rancorous fallout freaks!

Co-creators Billy Tucci (Shi, Sgt. Rock, Miss Fury) and John Broglia (God Complex, Atomic Robo) are joined by digital colorist Paul Little and letterer/designer Mindy Lopkin for a full-color, 60-page graphic novel. Goriously-good variant covers are offered by Billy, John and European rising star Asha Kishna.  

All 60 pages of artwork is complete, and we just have to finalize our coloring and lettering. In addition, we have the art and swag you desire, with offerings of prints, challenge coins, T-shirts and more!  

As an added BONUS we’re offering a very, very special reward… a preview ashcan comic for the upcoming “Shi – Return of the Warrior”! The ashcan will ONLY be available to those who pledge for this Kickstarter. You will not be able to get it anywhere else.  

So please PLEDGE and help our team to make Zombie-Sama, a reality.
