Writer HS Tak and artist Isabella Mazzanti have teamed up for the upcoming historical fiction story, Hitomi. The series is a five-issue mini series planned for launch from Image Comics on October 12th, 2022.
Here’s the synopsis:
In Hitomi, a drifter with no prospects in Feudal-era Japan begins training in secret under Yasuke, a now-disgraced former samurai, as she struggles to find her place in a society entrenched in discrimination and violence.
Combining the historical sweep and elegance of Kurosawa with the visceral action of Tarantino, this saga follows the trials and tribulations of a young female warrior who travels the countryside unendingly as she works to gain the rank of Samurai—a title no man, monster, or myth can give to her, but one that she will have to take for herself.
