War breaks out on “Ronin Island” in a first look at the second issue
Have you read Ronin Island #1 from BOOM! Studios yet? I’m digging it. The premise of intriguing, and Giannis Milonogoannis’ art is stunning, so I’m looking forward to where this series is going.
It looks like I’m not alone either, as BOOM! have announced that the first issue has already sold out. That’s great news, and they’ve released a first look at the second issue to whet our appetites. Check it out below.
A First Look at the Mayhem of Battle in RONIN ISLAND #2 from BOOM! Studios
LOS ANGELES, CA (March 15, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a new look at RONIN ISLAND #2, the next chapter in the new five-issue limited series from superstar writer Greg Pak (Firefly, Star Wars, Mech Cadet Yu) and fan favorite artist Giannis Milonogiannis (Old City Blues) that sold out of RONIN ISLAND #1 on its day of release. Two brave young warriors must overcome their differences to save their home from a mutant zombie horde that seeks to mindlessly destroy them all.
After a mysterious attack devastates a great swath of 19th century Japan, Korea, and China, survivors from all three lands find refuge on a hidden island and build a new society. The island has endured generations of devastation and strife by hiding away from the larger world, but that’s no longer an option when an army of mainland soldiers, led by General Sato, lands on their shores with a terrifying warning. Their arrival heralds a deadly invasion of mutants, and brings with it an offer of safety that comes at a cost. Hana and Kenichi must not only fight for their survival against the mutant hordes but also for their freedom under the rule of this new army -- which is difficult to do when they disagree on exactly who should be in charge and how best to save their people.
RONIN ISLAND #2 arrives in stores April 2019 and features a main cover by Milonogiannis, along with variant covers by acclaimed artists Ethan Young (Tails) and Kris Anka (Runaways).
“The horrifying toll of a mutant attack introduces us to the death and destruction that have ravaged the mainland, having finally arrived on the shores of the island haven that Hana and Kenichi call home,” said Cameron Chittock, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Greg, Giannis, Irma, and Simon do an incredible job of showing us the entire island grappling with the terror of these new threats, and the hard choices that need to be made when they’re stuck between two impossible situations.”
Ronin Island #2 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on April 10.
