Honor and Curse, the first wave title that put Mad Cave Studios on the comics map, welcomes the return of Genshi, the Tengu, Akemi, and the rest of the Iga back shinobi thriller, featuring art by Mauricio Villarreal (Wolvenheart).
Honor and Curse #7 (W) Mark London (A) Nicolas Salamanca (C) Tekino (L) Miguel Zapata Left reeling after the murder of Lord Haruki, Genshi makes his way to the Jade Caverns per Nishiro’s instructions. Meanwhile, Akemi took control of the Iga and is training like never before to defend her clan from potential threats… like the rival Koga clan who are looking to seize the opportunity presented by Lord Haruki’s death.
“When I first came up with the idea for Honor and Curse, it was supposed to be a straightforward ninja tale with some historical elements and tons of action,” said Mark London. “However, once I started diving into the research, I became fascinated by all of the mythology surrounding the era and the story morphed into what it is today; a story about a talented ninja possessed by an evil mountain spirit known as a Tengu. With the fantastic art that Nicolas and Tekino bring to the table, I can’t wait for the fans to see what we have in store for Genshi, Akemi, and the rest of the Iga clan.”
“Honor and Curse is a comic that I have a lot of affection for, not only because of the fact that it is set in feudal Japan, but it has allowed me to grow as an artist,” said Nicolas Salamanca. “I definitely consider it an honor and not a curse to continue working with Mark and Tekino on this incredible story.”
