Ah Quentin Tarantino, you have brought us so many amazing things over the years, and the best part of all just may be the fact that you are a fellow geek. Thankfully the director’s talents and visionary style have rubbed off on many a filmmaker, one of which being Christopher ‘Mink’ Morrison. The writer director is probably best known for being an “A BAND APART” alumni and he looks to make his first real mark in literature this coming Wednesday as he drops the manga inspired title “SHINJUKU” from Dark Horse Comics. More over the graphic novel is illustrated by legendary “VAMPIRE HUNTER D” artist Yoshitaka Amano! Inside you can get the full details on the story as well as feast your eyes on some advance artwork. Read on for the skinny.
Writer and director Christopher ‘mink’ Morrison (Dust) and legendary artist Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy, Vampire Hunter D) join forces to craft an unforgettable tale of destiny, danger, and hard-boiled sorcery, featuring over a hundred original paintings by Amano! In the year 2020, bounty hunter Daniel Legend finds himself tracking a quarry of a different kind: his long-lost sister. Armed only with his wits, his gun, and a mysterious postcard, Daniel makes his way to the heart of the seedy Shinjuku district of Tokyo, where a clash between two underworlds-the criminal and the infernal-threatens the very fabric of reality. o Shinjuku marks the first totally original project by Yoshitaka Amano for Dark Horse Books. Written by filmmaker mink, a rising star from Quentin Tarantino’s A Band Apart production company.
