Cyborg 009: Chapter 000

An epic re-imagining of Shotaro Ishinomori’s manga classic CYBORG 009, CYBORG 009: CHAPTER 000 is the historic first chapter of the forthcoming Archaia graphic novel coming this summer. Cyborg 009: Chapter 000 features the first ever truly digital variant cover created exclusively for comiXology using it’s Guided View technology. (PLEASE ENABLE GUIDED VIEW BEFORE READING!) When a young man known only by the numerical designation “009” discovers that his body has been cybernetically augmented and “improved” against his will, he must break free from the clutches of The Black Ghost, a secret society hell-bent turning humans into cybernetic weapons of mass destruction for sale to the highest bidder. Written by F.J. DeSanto (The Spirit, Insurgent) and Bradley Cramp (Gattaca, Lord of War) and stunningly illustrated by Marcus To (Batwing, Huntress, Red Robin) and Ian Herring (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand), Archaia and Ishimori Productions are proud to present this incredible new take on one of the most famous manga titles of all time!

Thank you for properly addressing that ridiculous "written by white people" post about our 009 graphic novel. I refuse to reply to it because you so accurately shot it down. Thank you again.

waaaah, it was nothing mr. Desanto! I just couldnt simply sit and watch while someone talking trash about such a cool comic with something like that poorly written argument!

Had the pleasure to meet chef Andy Lee from @rascalla who cooked some amazing comfort food for @fjdesanto and I. And when I heard Andy was a Batman fan, I was excited to draw him a sketch. Rascal is a new favorite joint in LA for me from now on.
