Written by Corey Kalman, Christian Moran (#4) and Brockton McKinney (Gingerdead Man), with art by Devin Roth (Bob’s Burgers), AmeriKarate is the story of black belt and war hero, Sam Kickwell. In a world that outlawed karate, one man fights for his right to fight karate for America…with karate! Sam Kickwell was the best of the best—until a terrible karate accident involving his brother and ninjas convinced him to hang up his black belt. Now he and his appendage-less sibling and Karate Master Force must punch and kick and flip and kiss sexy ninjas and chop their way to freedom!
Throughout the month of April, the AmeriKarate team will be appearing across the United States for Signing Events with exclusive surprises at each, like signed comics and Nunchucks and posters and more!
