ADRENALIZE WITH RED SPIKE
Image Comics Collects The 5-Issue Super Soldier Miniseries
 
Image Comics is proud to announce the March release of RED SPIKE VOL. 1 TP, written by Jeff Cahn, illustrated by Mark Texeira (Wolverine, Punisher) and Salvador Navarro, edited by Dave Elliott and produced by Benaroya Publishing.

70 years ago, the world began its race to create the first Super Soldier. In 2011, the United States succeeded… twice. Project Red Spike discovered that through the manipulation and regulation of the adrenal glands the super soldier was no longer just a dream.
 
The world of RED SPIKE involves soldiers Matt Cutler and Greg Dane, the first to survive the Project Red Spike program. They have been proven on the field to be everything that was wanting in the program. Unfortunately, an upgrade to Greg’s implant goes array and now it’s up to Matt to chase down his friend before he hurts himself, the city and the tax payers who funded their creation. But as the friends begin their very public battle in heart of Washington, DC, twisted and sinister secrets begin to emerge from within the Red Spike program. Can both soldiers survive or are their deaths a necessary measure to secure the program’s secrecy?

As their village burns behind them, they are headed for a city they’d heard about only in stories.

Will they rise on the tides of vengeance, or they will they fall on the swords of fate?

“Samurai’s Blood is just another example of all the great stuff Image Comics is putting together this year…I recommend the entire series.”Comic Book Bin

“One of the best things about Samurai’s Blood is its strong period feel, which is carried in particular by Nam Kim’s idealized yet realistic art and Jo Chen’s more expressionistic covers.”Playback STL
