Once a formidable swordsman and a master of the mystic arts, Fox roamed the land in human form for one hundred years. Now he is a disenchanted soul, in constant search of pleasure and distraction. But all that changes when Fox encounters a demon wolf, fueled by an intense rage that threatens to shatter Fox’s fragile peace. Can Fox reawaken his slumbering fighting spirit and find balance between the animal, human and supernatural realms? Find out in this beguiling and gorgeous one-shot comic!
“My objective was to tell a kick ass story of Kung Fu, magic and animals in human form,” says Ramirez. “Even though it is a story of myth and fantasy it is very much a reflection of being an expat in China, of the loneliness and ennui of being a stranger in a strange land but also the beauty and even the sort of enlightenment that you can find as a wanderer on the road.”
