REDEMPTION sees Jade return to center stage in a four issue mini-series written by BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER vets Tom Sniegoski and Christopher Golden. New artist Wilson Tortosa, who previously illustrated the Jade mini, TURN LOOSE THE DRAGON, comes back to pencil REDEMPTION. Chaos! Expects Wilson's "dark manga/anime look" to be an exciting addition to the series.

"Jade is one of those books that gets into your blood," says Sniegoski. "I find myself thinking of all the cool things that have never been done before in comics and try to apply them to the new Jade mini series. I want this series to be like watching an all out, balls to the wall action film, but I want it to be more than that. Watch out CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON watch out MATRIX Watch our AKIRA Jade is looking to out do you all."

The Shanghai of TURN LOOSE THE DRAGON was a high-tech neon-lit vision that Wilson intends to refine in REDEMPTION as the scene shifts to San Francisco. Blending all-out martial arts and action with a more humanizing elements, the new series follows Jade to America and into the heart of her enemy's lair. The Triad families have joined forces with a group known only as the Progeny, and they are about to release an anti-vampire weapon known as the Iron Racer to hunt Jade down.

REDEMPTION #1 arrives in stores on November 7, 2001, but if that's not enough, there's always Lady Death and her ongoing struggle with her newfound humanity. Since her mini-series, ALIVE, the white-skinned Diva of Death has been a flesh and blood mortal, and she will remain so for some time in fact, longer even than her creators originally planned. LADY DEATH: LAST RITES debuts in September, but it will not resolve her conflict. Will Lady Death remain alive or choose to return to her former role in Hell? This plot element will extend beyond the end of LAST RITES as the statuesque one explores her options.

The first issue of LAST RITES sports a stunning life-like cover painting by Ricky Carralero.
