Billy Tucci’s Shi was one of the leading ladies of the Chromium Era of Comics. According to a press release, the character has over 3 million copies in print as she celebrates her 20th anniversary this year. Tucci is kicking off a 20th Anniversary Tour this weekend at the London Super Con, and is releasing some convention variants including two LSCC exclusive books, seen below. While Tucci has been known in recent times mostly for his stunningly researched war books, he’s bringing Shi back later this year with a new mini-series: Hatachi.
And here’s those exclusives:
“Shi – Way of the Warrior #1” LSCC 20th Anniversary edition
and the “LSCC Shi – Sketch A Story” Sketchbook.
Both books are limited to only 25 editions with each signed and numbered by Tucci. LSCC will also see the debut of the “The Shi – Way of the Warrior #1 20th Anniversary Sketch Cover Edition” and all-new exclusive Shi lithographs based on the above art.
