Ian Stuart Sharpe on the Jotunn War Cover Process

SAMURAI VOLUME 1  

SYNOPSIS:
Toshiro Kimura is a Samurai master of ninjitsu who formerly worked for the peace keeping space battlecruiser Naganata. He is called back into service to search for the missing Professor Stringfellow, Naganata’s weapons expert, who was captured by the insane Nazi scientist Otto Arkoff. Meanwhile, Toshiro must learn the supernatural power of his Samurai sword before Kamakazi, the leader of the Tokyo Yakuza, and her lackeys steal it from him. Marduk, maniacal leader of Centagon, sends his child slaves to conquer Naganata and capture its Commander Velvet Black. Toshiro and his mentor Homer Bently break up a child white slavery ring in Ottawa.

CHARACTERS:
Toshiro Kimura, who follows the Bushido code of the Samurai, is a master ninjitsu practitioner based in Toronto. Ever vigilant, strong, and a clever fighter, he reluctantly works as an agent for Naganata, but would rather work alone.

Commander Hotachi, a clone of Toshiro, made smaller to fit inside his battlesuit, works for Naganata. He resents Toshiro for his unorthodox ways.

Naganata, a space laboratory and defense system, was established by the United Nations to locate and destroy criminal activity that threatens world peace.

Commander Velvet Black is the leader of Naganata intelligence. After Naganata’s destruction, she started Splinter, a private organization for justice based in Ottawa.

Otto Arkoff, an obese bespeckled Nazi, is a mad scientist who bio-engineers mutants to be expendable soldiers in wars.

Professor Stringfellow is Naganata’s weapons and science expert. He has sensitive information that in the wrong hands could be disastrous.

Simon Stringfellow is the professor’s young son, lured into the brainwashing New Christian Society, a cult under the direction of Arkoff. After Simon’s rescue, he hangs out with Toshiro and Gennin.

Sue Stringfellow, Simon’s older sister, is a botanist who was once Arkoff’s captive.

Kamakazi, the fierce female leader of the Yakuza in Tokyo, wants Kimura’s swords for their power.

Homer Bently, a friend of Toshiro’s deceased father, is a grizzled mentor and father figure to Toshiro who helps Toshiro, Velvet, Archie, and Gennin thwart criminals in the city.

Gennin, Toshiro’s older sister, owns a nightclub and later opens a ballet dance studio. She takes in wayward children.

Marduk is an insane scientist who clones and brainwashes child slaves and mutants to be soldiers in his crusade to conquer the world.

Archie Bodonie, a diminutive, long-haired cowboy, is a weapons dealer and field agent working for Splinter.
