Marat Mycheals On 30th Anniversary Of Zen, Intergalactic Ninja, For Devil's Due/1First Comics


We talked about the new Devil's Due/1First Comics publisher yesterday, as well as a look at a few of their new books.

Well, the new series of Zen The Intergalactic Ninja is still written by the character's creator Steve Stern but is now drawn by nineties famed comic artist Marat Mychaels, of books such such as Brigade, Vogue and Glory – and more recently, Hawk & Dove, Deadpool and Grifter.

The character was created in 1987 by Steve Stern and Dan Cote and self-published before it was picked up by Archie Comics and then Entity Comics. Sen  was published by Devil's Due until the creators objected to giving up a share in the IP of the character to continue, with 1First Comics publishing remastered reprints.

I guess any issues have now been dealt with… here's how the new look Zen will look.
