Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa will be a part of Indy Comic Book Week

Hello, My name is Martheus Wade and I am illustrator/creator of Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa. Glad to be a part of the indy movement.

Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa was created in 1985 by Martheus Antone Wade, a graduate of the University of Memphis. Martheus’ love for martial arts, along with his talent as a graphic artist, was a natural fit for creating the characters and story line.

Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa

The graphic novel is about a young Japanese woman, Shiandrea Toshigawa, born into the Toshigawa ninja clan. She is trapped between her wish to live a normal life and her destiny to be the chosen one of the ninja clan. The story delves into Japanese culture and lore, while also maintaining all of the modernities of a near future world, which is when the story takes place.

Character Biography
Shianndrea (Jetta) is a young Japanese woman born into the Toshigawa ninja clan. In its history, the clan protected Japan from the Knave, an organization bent on bringing evil together to unite the world. At the end of feudalism the Knave was defeated by Yamoto Toshigawa. However, legend foretold that one day a descendant of Yamoto Toshigawa, would be destined to once again defeat the Knave when they rise once again. When the Toshigawa are attacked by the emperor of Japan, Terminus, and the Knave she realizes the prophesy was meant for her.

Divided now between her loyalty towards her clan and her own desires, Jetta discovers that fighting her own destiny may be harder than answering to it.
