Dorothy Blade and her wolf Toto find themselves in a dark mythical Feudal Japan inspired world of Oz! Ninjas, demons, ghosts and more await her at every corner! Where does the Bloody Red Road lead?
Our story begins in a small quiet village by a river, where Dorothy runs errands for the locals.
The peace and quiet doesn't last long as a pair of thieves decide to try and steal from the village...
But they are no match for Dorothy Blade and her wolf Toto!
Soon afterwards a tornado hits the village! Dorothy's house is tossed into the air while she is fighting two very different thieves, the Spirit Fox Kunoichi! They're out for blood so there's no holding back now for Dorothy!
Dorothy soon finds herself in Oz, where she meets the Wicked Blade of the West and her army of eight foot tall Ape Kunoichi! Will she survive the Bloody Red Road to find her way home? And what of the Scaredemon that is said to haunt it?
Samurai of Oz is a 24 page comic and our first comic with complete manga/anime style line art for the interior, some topless action and hack and slash blood! And the comic is in full color! We do however have a black and white grey scale interior traditional manga style color option too! The story is written by Patriotika and Valkyrie Saviors writer Ron Zabala, the pages illustrated by Santa Fung and colored by Alessia Nocera. The comic is fully illustrated, but I need your help to get it printed, get it noticed, and get the series going! And there's variant covers plus cool swag you can pick up depending on how much you pledge!
