Soon to be an original video animation title, Karas is the newest creation from the minds
of Tatsunoko Production (the production company behind Speed Racer and Battle of the Planets) and Keiichi Sato (The Big O).

In the not-too-distant future, Japan is under siege by strange mechanical monsters led by
a sinister ex-hero named Eko. Though the future looks bleak, all is not lost. There is a
young hero chosen by the Landlord Yuri to fight against the phantoms that plague Japan.
He is Karas, a powerful armored being appointed to defend the innocent. With the help of Yuri, his mystical mentor, Karas sets out to preserve the natural balance of the universe, and to prevent the friendly old-world monsters from being transformed into mechanical demons!

The comic—written by Phil Amara (The Nevermen) and drawn by amazing newcomer Núria Peris—has a moody style and introverted characters that will appeal to fans of Vampire Hunter D, Ninja Scrolls, and Ghost in the Shell.

“After living this past year in Japan, I was hungry to use what I learned after months and months walking around Tokyo,” commented writer Phil Amara. “With a great story, it was easy to get excited about Karas and it’s been a real honor to be a part of creator Keiichi Sato’s next big project!”

Karas is a 32-page, full-color one-shot. It arrives on sale Dec. 1, with a retail price of $2.99. Edited by Dave Land.
