AmeriKarate is The Smash Hit Comic Book Paying Tribute to 1980’s Action Flicks

Hold onto your bloodsports and get ready to die hard because there is an action-packed and hilarious comic book about to explode onto store shelves! Action Lab Entertainment presents the karate choppin’, nunchuckin’, high-kickin’, hilarious comic book series, AmeriKarate!

This hot new series features art by Devin Roth, in his first ever comic book! Devin is well-known in the animation world for his character design work on Bob’s Burgers and Disney’s Future Worm. Written by Corey Kalman and Brockton McKinney (Gingerdead Man), AmeriKarate is a Diamond Previews Staff Pick!

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!

AmeriKarate will be available in stores starting with issue #1 on March 1st, 2017.

Issue #1 is open for pre-order now (until January 18th), and has five covers available; one regular cover by Devin Roth (Bob’s Burgers, Future Worm), and four collectable limited edition variant covers (only 1,500 copies each) by artists Sam Ellis (Archer), Bill McKay (Zombie Tramp), Daniel Arruda Massa (Holy F**k), and even a risqué photo variant featuring popular adult starlet, April O’Neil.
