17 Years of Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa

Shinobi-Defiance variant cover.

Shinobi-Defiance variant cover.

Since 1998, we have been publishing independent comic books to our friends and fans. That’s 17 years of ninja action. This week, we are celebrating our 17th anniversary of publishing Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa. A special thanks goes out to everyone that has bought a Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa, Turra: Gun Angel or Shinobi: Ninja Princess graphic novel, comic or piece of art. It’s because of you we have made it to 17 years.

With that being said, we want to celebrate big. By popular demand, we will be re-releasing our first book to hit the market, Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa – Defiance. This time, it’s with a new cover design and extras self published by us! This is first time this book has been on the market since 2005 and has been since out of print. As an added bonus, pre-orders of Jetta – Defiance will be able to choose between the standard cover and the Shinobi: Ninja Princess variant cover.

As well, in August, we will be closing pre-orders and selecting one lucky order to get an upgrade. The order we choose will get all the books in the Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa – Graphic Novel Series along with their order. If that isn’t enough, that person will also get the only copy of the original release of Defiance that we have that was originally published by Shooting Star comics. That’s a total of 8 books that will be delivered to one lucky winner.

Meanwhile, Shianndrea’s new defiant attitude towards her duty spells certain doom for the survival of the Toshigawa clan.

Wade’s World Podcast


Is the planet ready for THE WADES?

Well. I’ve been talked into starting a podcast. The thing is that my co-hosts are my son, Anakin Wade and my wife, Janet Wade. When we’re not arguing with each other, or fighting over what to watch on T.V., we talk about how it is to be a creative family unit. What keeps us creative and any other tangent that creeps into our minds.

Episodes 1 and 2 are out for your listening pleasure or torture. Whichever floats your boat.  In the first episode we share with the world what a creative family is like. In the second episode, Anakin kicks Janet out of the family and Janet tells how I keep my kickboxing mouth guard in my pocket at all times.

Take a listen and don’t forget to pick up Shinobi: Ninja Princess!!
