Issue 2 of Cyberpunk Fantasy “2100 Samurai” Now on Indiegogo
On Friday, independent comic book creator Nick Gibson launched a crowdfunding campaign for 2100 Samurai issue 2, the follow-up to the first issue that was successfully crowdfunded last year.
Written by Gibson and illustrated by Brian Quiroga, 2100 Samurai is a black and white, cyberpunk graphic novel inspired by Blade Runner, Ghost In The Shell, and Batman Beyond (not Samurai Jack? C’mon…). It is also intended strictly for mature audiences.
Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the 2100 Samurai Indiegogo campaign page:
The problems just keep on chugging…
Kiro returns in this second outing of 2100 Samurai. Once he was samurai of the Songor region. Hailing from feudal japan, he and his fiancé Myshi are suddenly flung into the cyberpunk future of 2100.
Tragedy quickly followed them both, leaving Kiro to fend for himself in this alien world. Fortunately, luck was still on his side for no sooner did Myshi leave this mortal coil then a new partner leapt to his side.
A street urchin who has survived out of sheer spite. Tyler is used to relying on herself. The only person she occasionally calls on is her sister the Madam Judy. But like many things, every favor has it’s price.
Now in over her head, she is forced to rely on another person, Kiro. Both having something the other lacks.
Kiro has the strength to kill fifty men.
Tyler has the smarts to stop him from getting arrested by two.
Together, they will one day become a formidable force. Learning from each other.
So begins the second part of our tale.
Will Kiro find his place in this new city scape?
What’s Tyler’s deal? Where did she come from?
And most importantly…
What happened to Myshi’s body?
