For the first time ever, SHI – the masterwork of award-winning creator Billy Tucci, and the series that literally changed the face of comics and launched the “Bad Girl” revolution – returns in this premier formatted, 488+-page hardcover edition!
This modern-day samurai saga introduces the story of Ana Ishikawa, a young woman born of two cultures and drafted into a shadow war that has existed for over 500 years. In this complete omnibus, we follow Ana as she begins her violent assault on the Yakuza Oyabun Masahiro Arashi. But after several fiery clashes and witnessing the grieving children of those she’s slain in battle; Ana turns away from the sword. Soon, the hunter becomes the hunted as Arashi seeks his own revenge against this faceless assailant… and his answer is the centuries-old enemies of Ana’s Kyoto Sohei (descendants of the medieval warrior-monks), the Narans, led by her best friend, the sociopathic assassin Tomoe! Heartbreaking twists and exhilarating turns ensue as Ana’s mission unravels into one of blood and madness… and whose culmination’s only salvation is mercy and forgiveness.
