Seven Holes for Air is a heartbreaking story of a stoic man coming to terms with his coming death at the hands of cancer. It looks at how we perceive ourselves, how our past influences our present day behavior, and what truly makes a man.

Bob has had a headache for months but refuses to go to the doctor. He is too busy working on a new building where the foreman and company owner are behaving shady and is wanting to build a shed for his daughter to store her things when she comes home from college. After his wife Lisa schedules an appointment and conveniences her brother-in-law to take him, he soon finds out he has cancer. Trying to handle the treatment, his job and his home responsibilities, is leading him to fantasize about an alternate life where he is a farmer out in the west in the time of the railroad being built. There, his past, present, and work all meld together to let him play out both what is happening along with what he wishes would happen.

Exclusive: 9-Page Preview Of ‘Bushido #5′ From Top Cow
  |  @   |  

Today we present you with the last of our exclusive previews for Top Cow’s Bushido by Rob Levin and Jessada Sutthi, as the series wraps up with issue #5 on sale October 30, 2013.

There’s not too much I can say about this last installment. We’ve been following Kichiro through four issues of vampire action. It’s high-time for him to lead the charge and eliminate the monsters who have killed his family and kidnapped his girlfriend. It’s time for him to take his revenge and wipe out the scourge of vampires once and for all.

Once again, thanks to our friends over at Top Cow for letting us premiere these exclusive preview pages of Bushido, for what has been a fun series. I hope they’ve gotten you interested enough in the series to give it more than just a look. I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear from Levin or Sutthi”¦ but I’m not so sure about Kichiro.

I hope that all you fine readers have been enjoying our exclusive previews for the Top Cow 5-issue mini-series, Bushido by Rob Levin and Jessada Sutthi. I’ve certainly been enjoying the series so far, with its mix of Japanese culture and the scourge of vampires. Now, it’s time to take a look at the penultimate issue in the series.

So far our hero, Kichiro, has lost his adopted father and been mistakenly arrested for murder while his adopted brother is set to marry Kichiro’s love. Now, Kichiro has lost his brother to the vampire curse, and it is time for him to step up and save the nation and possibly the whole world, but especially the woman he loves.

We’re happy to present this exclusive preview of Bushido, and you’d better believe we’ve got one more preview in store for you next week. Enjoy!
