Tucci’s SHI-trilogy reaches an end with SAKURA
25 years ago Billy Tucci came onto the market with his comic SHI. His original series WAY OF THE WARRIOR has reached iconic status and there were even spinoffs such as Tomoe with artist Amanda Conner and also artist JG Jones with “Black, White and Red” and many crossovers such as Daredevil, Cyblade (1st Witchblade), Vampirella…
After 100 or so comics, the rack was out for a while and Tucci also focused on other work… as he told 1stcomicnews.
A few years ago, he had some conversations with Brian Pulido and Jimmy Palmiotti, who explained the phenomenon of crowdfunding to him.
Since then he has released his SHI OMNIBUS (200k via KS/IGG) as well as a new trilogy “RETURN OF THE WARRIOR” (131K) with the 2nd part “HAIKYO” (163K) and the current 3rd part SAKURA.
