BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at RONIN ISLAND #4, a heart-wrenching turn of events where terrible secrets are revealed and sacrifices are made in the exciting original series from acclaimed writer Greg Pak (Firefly, Star Wars, Mech Cadet Yu) and fan-favorite artist Giannis Milonogiannis (Old City Blues), available in June 2019.
When Hana and Kenichi come face-to-face at last with the great and mighty Shogun in his palace, Kenichi finds himself embraced and gifted a full set of golden armor while Hana is relegated to the servants’ corridors. But both of the islanders have a hidden agenda to find out exactly what the Shogun and his forces are up to in their enormous stronghold. What they discover will change everything they’ve ever known and end in someone making the ultimate sacrifice to save the lives of their people.
RONIN ISLAND #4 features a main cover by Milonogiannis and colorist MSASSYK, along with variant covers by acclaimed artists Ethan Young (Nanjing: The Burning City) and Kris Anka (Runaways).
