BOOM! Studios has announced that Ronin Island, originally planned as a five-issue mini-series will be expanded to a full series order of twelve issues. Written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Giannis Milonogiannis, the series is set on a small, secret island where a mysterious attack in the 19th century has devastated large portions of Japan, Korea, and China. It's here that survivors of all three lands find refuge and form a new society. It's been able to thrive for generations by hiding away from the larger world, but that changes when an army of mainland soldiers, led by General Sato, lands on their shores. They bring a warning as an invasion of mutants is coming. Islanders Hana and Kenichi must put aside their differences and fight for the survival of their home as well as freedom from this new army.

“I'm over the moon and so grateful to all the readers, retailers, and reviewers who have supported and spread the word about Ronin Island,” said writer Greg Pak. “This kind of thing only happens because of you -- you're all our favorite! I'm particularly thrilled because as our brilliant art team started creating this world and making these characters come to life, I just didn't want to leave. Now we've got the real estate to explore this weird world even more and dig even deeper into the hearts of our heroes. It's a huge gift, and we're doing our very best to make the absolute most of it. Thank you!”

“I'm beyond excited to have twelve issues to explore the world of Ronin Island,” said artist Giannis Milonogiannis. “I've always loved telling longer stories, and this news has me daydreaming about the adventures our heroes will go on and the threats they'll face. Thanks to everyone who made this possible. I'm looking forward to all of us going on this journey together."

“The world Greg, Giannis, Irma, and Simon have built with Ronin Island is lush, deep, and ripe for further exploration, and we’re all thrilled to be able to bring Hana & Kenichi’s expanded adventures to readers,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “As we move into the story’s second arc, expect more fantasy-tinged samurai drama, more mutant horde action, and more of the characters that have resonated so strongly with readers after just a single issue.”

Ronin Island #1 has sold out at the distribution level so BOOM! Studios has a second printing on the way, coming on April 24th. The first trade paperback will debut in July, collecting the first four issues. This will be available exclusively at comic shops for five months.
