Dark Horse Announces Steampunk Horror Graphic Novel Toshiro from Jai Nitz
Looking for something a bit different to add to your reading list? Then check out the first word on and cover art for Toshiro, an original steampunk horror graphic novel from Jai Nitz and Dark Horse Comics.
From the Press Release:
Genres collide in an adventure where steam-powered tanks clash with katanas in the new graphic novel Toshiro from writer Jai Nitz (Dream Thief) and artist Janusz Pawlak.
“Toshiro bends and blends genres to make something altogether new. Janusz and I wanted to play with Victorian steampunk, alternate history, Lovecraftian monsters, and the magic of Tezuka’s Astro Boy to tell a story,” said Jai Nitz. “We wanted to wear our influences on our sleeves but do the hard work of creating something new. I think this book will appeal to any fans of adventure.”
The mechano-samurai Toshiro travels a Victorian clockwork world, battling horrors too dark for mankind. With his mysterious partner, the world-famous adventurer Quicksilver Bob, Toshiro must face Earth’s greatest foe yet: the soul-stealing, zombie-creating jellyfish from beyond. Janusz Pawlak’s jagged inks and moody watercolors create a world of dread and mystery.
Toshiro will be on sale June 4th in comic shops (Diamond code FEB140081) and June 17th in bookstores everywhere. Pre-order info is below.
