Red Koi

Samurai Ohira Eiko journeys to the house her father built on the site of a brutal conquest. There she finds ghosts, demons, dark secrets, and an ancient enemy.

Red Koi was inspired by the back tattoo of author Shoko Tendo from her autobiography Yakuza Moon (under the Crime section). I began researching samurai women of the past and Japanese tattoo (Irezumi), but didn’t want to try and retell history. Instead I thought about how cool it would be to see that character in a haunted house/monster movie-type setting and my imagination took it from there.

Red Koi #1 (of 2) will be coming this August from Alterna Comics with colors by Nick Welch and letters by Wes Locher. I can’t wait for you to check it out.
