What happens when you mix giant robots with interplanar monsters reminiscent of HP Lovecraft? According to Lieutenant “Hightower” Harmon, an unfortunate amount of paperwork. With giant robots, giant monsters, and giant action, SHOGUN KNIGHT: DYSON V mixes the best tropes of Japanese Mecha and Lovecraftian horror and pairs them with a down to earth hero and an appealing, diverse supporting team.

When the corrupt titan, BLACK ODIN, rampages through the scientific facility intended to study it, piloted by Thompson, a scientist gone mad due to his exposure to the “Walkers,” tentacular aliens able to reanimate the dead, Harmon has no choice but to attempt to awaken a second Mecha to confront him.

But the series of events Thompson has started reach across the globe, and one Mecha won’t be enough to save the world.

Harmon and his team must seek out the remaining lost guardians in order to protect humanity.

SHOGUN KNIGHT: DYSON V is a full color, over-sized, four-issue Super Robot action series in the vein of Shogun Warriors, Mazinger Z, Giant Robo, and Grendizer. Written by creator Mat Nastos with art by Nastos and Nicolas Giancondino and colors by Chunlin Zhao, SHOGUN KNIGHT DYSON V is an exciting love letter to Japanese Super Robots and Mecha.
