Years later, returning from his voluntary exile, Shoji finds his world more war torn than ever. After happening upon the aftermath of a decisive battle at Akagahara, Shoji finds himself the unwitting custodian of the legendary Mugendai Blade, and its companion Scorpion Stone.

Small Press Pick of the Week
Nightwalkers #1 – It is a Cullen Bunn book which is always a good thing, but the last part of the solicitation caught my eyes, a collaboration with Hustle & Heart films.

When Seren and the other patients wake to find themselves locked inside and abandoned by the center’s staff, they must decide whether to wait or break out. The decision is made for them when a blood thirsty monster enters the center, and begins to tear through them to satiate its lust for blood. In a collaboration with Hustle & Heart Films and Vertigo Entertainment (IT, DOCTOR SLEEP), Source Point Press is proud to bring you Cullen Bunn’s Night Walkers, a new comic book series with a terrifying, fresh take on a timeless horror sub-genre.
