Yi Soon Shin

Questo è il nome del personaggio storico protagonista della miniserie su cui presto inizierò a lavorare.
Si tratta di un Generale koreano del '500, protagonista di molte battaglie navali e non, famoso per non averne mai persa una e aver rispedito i giapponesi (che volevano passare dalla Korea per invadere la Cina) al mittente.
Le parole di Onrie Kompan, lo scrittore creatore della serie:

"This is a 12-issue limited series based on the true story of Admiral Yi Soon Shin, a Korean naval commander who saved his people from Japanese invasion forces during the Imjin War (1592-1598). Ideally, it will be broken up into three separate four issue mini series.

Having never been defeated in battle, Yi Soon Shin won 23 consecutive victories over the Japanese. Each issue will focus on a different battle that helped change the course of the war in Korea’s favor and define Yi’s legacy.

This is a story that sets out to define a real life hero in the realm of comics.

Much like the Nazis during World War II, the Japanese were known for having little remorse for the innocent civilians of Korea. They raped women, enslaved children and killed elders. All that stood before them was one man who could not be defeated in battle.

Please feel free to view the gallery of pilot images that was compiled by up and coming talents Onrie Kompan, Giovanni Paolo Timpano, Adriana De Los Santos, and Joel Saavedra.

The first issue was edited by Len Strazewski (Prime, JSA) and Mort Castle (The Strangers, New Moon Over Water).
