    Awarded the CXC Comic of the Week July 10-16, 2017.

    Samurai Shin is an exciting and diverse story of 2 warriors locked in what promises to be a thrilling game of cat and mouse. We look forward to learning more about the mysterious Bear warrior and are excited to watch Amir’s growth as a Samurai!

    Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys Manga, but more than that, anyone who enjoys action-revenge stories!!

Mikel Miles and Ivan Earl Aguilar are the two creative minds behind Samurai Shin, a Hip-Hop inspired manga comic and mixtape series the two launched last year.

 

After seeing Aguilar’s art on Facebook, Miles reached out to him with the idea of creating a manga series, and the end result is a dynamic, innovative take on samurai anime. Along with the forthcoming comic, there will be a “Samurai Shin OST 1” mixtape, which is influenced by Hip-Hop and Instrumental music, similar to styles showcased in indie talent like P.Soul, Kuro Silence, Chill $quad, Xia-Dawn, Core Demonstrations  & Jaymin Warren. Featuring illustrators Sukma Agustriyana, Harley Dela Cruz, Fahmi Fauzi, Muhammad Dinul and editor Lavender Khan, a new Samurai Shin  projects is slated for release later this year 2017.

 

Miles, a 28-year-old writer, says Samurai Shin is highly influenced by anime such as Afro Samurai, Samurai Champloo, and Sword Of The Stranger. Currently balancing his passion for writing with his demanding day jobs, Miles first became involved with comics as a young child, and began sketching rudimentary stickman characters of his idols, such as the Chicago Bulls’ Michael Jordan. Citing Spiderman, Batman, and Canada’s Captain Canuck as his comic-book heroes, Miles is now spearheading Samurai Shin’s storylines.

 

Aguilar is a 26-year-old student and self-described anime geek who supports himself as a freelance digital artist. A student of artists like Jim Lee and Yoshihiro Togashi, he also credits classical artists like Rembrandt and Caravaggio as sources of creative inspiration, and he hopes to create something new with Samurai Shin. “We want to give a new dimension to the experience, not only visually,” he says.
In September of 2016, Miles and Aguilar released Samurai Shin’s inaugural issue, which is available at PEEPGAMECOMIX & COMIXCENTRAL. Based on two characters, Amir Atsuko and Keith Masaru, it tells the story of what happens when a mysterious villain attacks their village, and features a soundtrack. Today, the two are gearing up for Samurai Shin – The Prelude Story, Part 1, which will delve into Keith Masaru’s past.
