Writer/Artist: Tyler Wentland
Samurai Ohira Eiko journeys to the house her father built on the site of a brutal conquest. There she finds ghosts, demons, dark secrets, and an ancient enemy.
According to Wentland: “Red Koi was inspired by the back tattoo of author Shoko Tendo from her autobiography Yakuza Moon (under the Crime section). I began researching samurai women of the past and Japanese tattoo (Irezumi), but didn’t want to try and retell history. Instead I thought about how cool it would be to see that character in a haunted house/monster movie-type setting and my imagination took it from there.”
The book will be available in stores August 28th, and preorders are available on Alterna’s new store site.
