Samurai Shin is a harsh and bloody comic book series created by Mikel Miles. The story follows Amir Atsuko and Keith Masaru, two young warriors eager to prove that they are worthy of the title of Samurai however, there can only be one. The first issue is out on Peep Game Comix and it’s clear that the creators have been influenced by Japanese manga. This, of course leads to comparisons with Afro Samurai, another violent thriller series centered on a black samurai. Afro Samurai was a masterpiece and while it’s too early to say the same thing about Samurai Shin, the series has made a strong start with issue 1.
The creators of Comics have confirmed Samurai Shin Issue 2, which features an English sub-titled trailer with Japanese language showcasing both stories protagonists. Writer Mikel Miles and illustrator Ivan Earl Aguilar have joined forces once again for the second issue and illustration artist Fahmi Fauzi has also contributed.
The soundtrack for Issue 2, Samurai Shin OST 2 , will be independently released. Samurai Shin OST 1 was released earlier this year and featured producers Kuro Silence, P.Soul, and underground emcees including Chill$quad and Jaymin Warren. Samurai Shin OST 1 is available on Payhip and Soundcloud for free. Samurai Shin Issue 2 & Samurai Shin OST 2 are scheduled to release in 2017. Samurai Shin Team also gave us an exclusive first strip of the 2nd Issue. You can win a copy of issue 1 in our give-away while stocks last.
