JETTA and SHI COLOR by martheus JETTA and SHI COLOR by martheus
For all you fans of Shi, this will be a treat for you. For all you fans of Jetta, this will be a double treat for you. This summer, the Toshigawa Ninja, Jetta, will team up with the legendary, Shi, in a battle to protect the earth from an army of the dead!

It was Japan in 1582. Oda Nobunaga was a cruel and bloodthirsty warlord. In his efforts to unify Japan, he slaughtered thousands of innocent men, women, and children, even killing the Sohei warrior monks of the Hiei Monastery and killing the head of the Toshigawa clan. Oda Nobunaga was killed by a poisoned arrow, shot by Tokoshi Toshigawa. This sacred arrow has been protected through the ages as it holds the key to unlock great evil.

Fast forward to present day Japan. After years of undisturbed peace, an unknown evil threatens Honno-Ji again. Tenkai, a mysterious monk, must call on the help of a descendant of the Sohei (Shi) & the descendant of the Toshigawa (Jetta) to honor an age-old promise to protect the Arrow of Nobunaga.

As part of the upcoming event “War of the Independents” Jetta will partner with the legendary Shi in this huge crossover event. Shi and Jetta find their pasts intertwine in this action packed lead in to the “War of the Independents” six-issue mega event. July 2008.

I'm glad that this is getting the buzz that it is getting. I can't wait to see the covers that William Tucci is illustrating. It is a real honor to have him work on this with us.

Thanks. The colorist that I had lined up left the project. So the job of colors fell back on us. This is truly a MAW Productions affair now.

The ones that stare get killed very quickly. The ones that run get killed even quicker. Jetta and Shi like to stop traffic. lol.
