Debut Issue of Marz & Moder’s Modern Vampire vs. Samurai Bloodbath Goes Back to Print

CA – 9 June 2011 – Vampires be forewarned: SHINKU is here to kick ass
and take names! The first issue of Ron Marz and Lee Moder’s sexy story
of a lone samurai versus hordes of bloodsucking vampires sold out at
distribution level before it even hit the shelves.

While copies of
SHINKU #1 may still be available in some comic shops, their days are
numbered! Therefore, a second printing is underway and will be available
in stores the same day that SHINKU #2 is released.

who worked on SHINKU put blood, sweat and tears into it… mostly
blood, though,” explained Marz. “So we’re really excited and gratified
by the reception the book has received. There’s going to be plenty more
you can sink your teeth into.”

Some of the rave reviews of the first issue of SHINKU include these words of praise:

you’re looking for a samurai story, a twisted vampire yarn, a new
female lead to cheer for, an adventure tale, or even a few laughs,
SHINKU is the place you want to look.”—Joey Esposito of IGN

it’s one of the best new #1’s I’ve read in a while. Badass, original
and NOT for the faint of heart, I’ve fallen for this book very
quickly…” Russ Burlingame of Comic Related

reason Ron Marz’s SHINKU #1 rises above a lot of the work in the
over-populated zombie/vampire genre within the medium is his sardonic
wit and unrelenting pacing.”—Eric Whitman of The Daily Blam!

#1 introduces Shinku, the last woman standing in a centuries old line
of samurai who secretly fight against a powerful vampire clan. In this
tough world of one mortal versus throngs of violent immortal killers,
one thing is certain: in the second issue, things get even bloodier!

second printing of SHINKU #1 (APR118207), a 32-page full color horror
comic book priced at $2.99 is available for re-order now with an
in-store date of July 7, coinciding with the release of SHINKU
#2 (MAY110529).
