Jean-Paul Deshong writes for Bleeding Cool:

“The swing of your sword SHOULD pierce the universe itself!”…. The OLD WARRIOR, , the IMPRESSIONABLE BOY, and the fate of FEUDAL Japan….SONS OF FATE  now on Kickstarter!

photo 1“When you  swing of your sword will have the intent of cutting into the universe itself. Swing with your whole being, If true your will will carry through your swing, it will be a true cut.  A cut that could pierce the universe itself.  Only a swing like that can be a cut that carries ideals, a cut that reveals who you are.” Cool, huh! Sone of the many great and insightful lines form Sons of Fate, graphic novel now live in Kickstarter.  The story is about An old samurai warrior on his way home from a long trade mission bequeathed to him by the Shogun himself in the Tokugawa period in japanese history. On his way back to his home , and family, through unpreventable  circumstances his fleet is met with disaster and he is marooned on the coast of Africa. Stranded and alone he is saved by a young boy from a wandering tribe. The child  curious about the world outside of his surroundings. and through circumstances ( don’t want to totally spoil what happens), is taken on by the samurai  as his apprentice, and that’s where the fun begins! Its Obi -Wan mets Luke, trained as a jedi who then goes forth to forge the universe they inhabit, wrapped in a east meets west samurai epic!

photo 2Son’s of Fate (origins) is a prequel story that chronicles what happens to the protagonist and the events that lead up to his arrival in Japan, and the subsequent events that happen after. “Origins” is the story that not chronicles the fate of Daiki, and Kamau, but also those who encompass their lives, and the history of Japan itself!

photo 3The title Son’s of Fate is tied to a simple theme which is the book’s mantra. A simple ideology that no matter how random things may see, only in the end, after all the connections are made, does one see the purpose of those events.
