Exclusive Interview with Creator @RobLevin for @TopCow's Bushido @ImageComics

I was fortunate enough to ask Rob Levin (Mind the Gap, Witchblade, Darkness) , the Creator of the upcoming genre-blending samurai vs. vampires series Bushido a few questions about the comic industry, and his new book. Thanks to Top Cow I also have a 9-page preview of the first issue of the mini-series. You can read the interview by clicking Read More. "Written by Rob Levin and illustrated by Jessada Sutthi, Bushido: The Way of the Warrior , takes place in feudal Japan and tells the tale of Kichiro, a young shipwrecked boy who is raised by samurai and trained in the art of Bushido. As he grows, and a vampiric threat emerges, Kichiro will lead a small group of samurai as Japan’s only line of defense."
