Along the way, we get the opportunity to revisit key moments of her childhood as well as introduce new characters into this rich universe. This time, Shianndrea is on the run from the Azumi Ninja Clan who have accepted a contract to capture her by the Emperor of Japan, Terminus. Now Shianndrea has to navigate being a teenager as well as being a ninja in a world out to get her.

Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa – Omega

This is what I have been working on for the better part of 2 years. Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa – Omega is the final graphic novel that ties up the current storyline running in the main graphic novel series. Man!! This has been an endeavor of love, right here. I have honestly worked harder on this book than I have on ANY BOOK that I have ever done. Why? Because my career started with these characters and I want to make my life’s work, well, work. When this comes out, I hope you all will support it. I hope you will give it a chance like you have before. I hope… hope… hope. I’m currently wrapping up pencils on it and will be heading into final productions soon. Be on the lookout for updates.

How can you say no to these two women?

Kunoichi Hime!!! To the MOON!!!


It has been a long time since I’ve had a break in order to post here. The good news is that I have been REALLY BUSY with new Toshigawa Universe stuff. The bad news is that it takes me away from informing everyone that reads this site, what I have been up to. So, here is a rundown of what we have been doing to insure new artwork, stories and books are there for you guys to enjoy. The first thing that I have been getting wrapped up is Kunoichi Hime! I’ll have a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT on this coming up really soon. I can’t wait to share it. Until then, know that this 6 issue mini from Action Lab will be something special. If you don’t know, the book tells the story of a young Shianndrea Toshigawa (AKA: Jetta) at the age of 14 while she struggles with love, loss, ninja training and being a teenage girl. It’s an awesome, lighthearted, fun tale that will give some new blood into this Universe. If you are a long time reader of the Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa and Turra: Gun Angel series of graphic novels, don’t feel left out. Kunoichi Hime will fit right into the vein of stories you have come to enjoy as you will get to see these familiar characters earlier in life. You get to read about events that where only mentioned in the graphic novel series as well as see what actions formed these characters’ ambitions and motivations. I am really proud of the work that Team Toshigawa/Turra has put into this book. I’m sure you will love it too.

Turra and Cyan in Kunoichi Hime© issue 2

There has been a great deal of things happening that I have to fill you guys in on. First off, sorry for the long delay between updates. Life can get away with you sometimes and this is one of those times for me. The good news is that I haven’t been just sitting around. I’ve been working on some cool stuff!! So, here is a quick update to let you guys know where I am on all of the different projects that are currently in production.

Janet, Martheus and Marvin at ABC Remix

Kunoichi Hime is looking REALLY GOOD. Our preview book that we have taken to conventions has had a great response. There are A LOT of people looking forward to this book coming out. The first issue is in the can! The second issue is in deep production. Tressa Bowling (LOI Studios and co-host of the podcast Beaucoup Pop) has completed her cover for issue 2 and its awesome. I’ll preview it as soon as production on it has completed! I’m still in talks with Action Lab Entertainment to get a formal date for the Kunoichi Hime Release. Once I get that, I’ll let everyone know when this book will hit the shelves! Be on the look out!

Kristen meditates on page 4 of Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa - Omega

Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa – Omega is also looking awesome! I’m really proud of the work that is going into this book as we close this main Jetta story arch. I’ve been working on the Jetta stories my entire comic book career and this is a VERY bittersweet book for me. So, I’m trying to give you guys the best that I can to thank you for sticking with me and Jetta all these years. I am on the last chapter of pencils! Be on the look out for pre-order announcements when we get closer to release!

Turra© is Realdy to Roll!

August 3 and 4 will see Turra: Gun Angel come to life in our live action short. Since our Indiegogo Campaign to raise funds for the short was successful, this has been the big thing that has kept me away from other projects. This is MASSIVE. If you have donated and joined Team Turra, your incentives will be shipped to you as soon as the edits are complete and we have a final copy of the short. I’m so excited to be on the set again working with Marshal Pictures and Rachel Alig to bring this story to life. Find out more info on the movie and the Turra© character at!

Alright peeps! There is more to do and so little time. I’m going to put on the artist cap again and hit the drawing board. I’ll see you all in the comic books.


One Tired Creator!
