Sharknife: Stage First

Writer/Artist: Corey Lewis

The Guandong Factory isn’t like other restaurants. It’s five stories tall, for one. For two, it produces more peach dumplings per day than most eateries do in a decade. For three, it’s the home of Sharknife-a mystical protector charged with protecting the establishment from those who would do it harm! Once just a simple busboy, now Caesar Ives is something more–a crazy red rocket hero destined for greatness! But can Caesar juggle both lives? Nabbing both the girl (the supersexy Chieko Plumbheart) *and* stopping the baddies? Find out in the first fist-pounding volume by Udon Studio’s Corey Lewis (Street FighterRival Schools)!

Darkness abounds. The Brothers Stronghand return. Unsatisfied with a sword to share, they quest for a second blade of doom. Angels tremble, Demons weep, and Satan himself doesn’t dare stand in their way. But alas, a traitor from within does twist words and meanings, setting brother against brother. Will their bond of blood hold them or tear them asunder? Doom’s head comes. All is lost. None survive. Dare read at your peril. You’ve been warned…
