Overview

Sons of Fate: A lost chapter in the history of ancient Japan and the code of the Samurai via an unlikely warrior from the most foreign of lands.

It is the Tokugawa era. The Shogunate having suppressed the constant rebellions of the nation now sets its sights on expanding their dominance throughout the world. In doing so, General Daiki Jinjaku is commissioned
to lead a small fleet seaward in order to gain new trade routes, and charter waterways to new lands. The general having the utmost pride towards his duty towards his nation triumphantly goes forth, leaving his
beloved wife and young son Omo behind. Omo, wanting to grow up in the honorable ways of Daiki promises to work hard in everything he does in order to reach his fathers greatness. Daiki promises that one day he will return to his homeland to see the pride of Japan his son has become. Many years later, on the way home from their mission, the samurai are overwhelmed by obstacles obscuring their journey. This mission, almost form the onset is met with great catastrophe and most of the fleet is lost. Eventually, only Daiki reaches mainland, as the only survivor,
and manages to settle in his new home, where he is now stranded. That land is Africa. Through circumstance, he meets a young and impressionable boy named Kamau, who wins Daiki�s favor through sheer will. From the onset of the mission, Daiki has not understood the tragedy in his life. His failures�, far outweighing his success, his only option is to press forward. Not being able to see where his destiny is leading him, he questions his actions and how they lead to his comrade�s death. KNOWING that he may never see his wife and child again, Daiki finally realizes his purpose, through the child Kamau, Daiki decides to take on the child as his apprentice, teaching him
EVERYTHING he has learned in his life. Doing this as a tribute to his son, his son, in the time span form leaving Edo to arriving in this foreign land, is now a man. A man he knows he may never see again.
Origins is the first chapter in the ongoing story. it sets up the life of Kamau ( the little boy) and follows him throughout it, which is only told through our main character the circumstances which Kama finds himself in ( the story). It is a world that not only sets up a realistic surrounding in this fantasy, but also grounded in reality tethered to actual historical reference from an interesting point of world history. Although a fictional tale, Sons of Fate is the lost chapter in the history of feudal Japan. The missing link that explains the circumstance of why the Tokugawa Shogunate closed its doors to the western world for 200 years.. wrapped in a east meets samurai epic. A little boy, an old man and the swing of a sword that could pierce the universe itself.

Editorial Reviews

the Relm Cast - Serg Sanchez
Writer/artist Jean-Paul Deshong truly has a vision that he has pieced together exceptionally well. "A true testament to his talent and overall skills. As the story goes on it becomes easily apparent that this is not just some action over the top comic but something with depth and emotion. Deshong�s imagination is center stage in this book and it turns out to be a story of epic proportions that should not be missed by anyone who considers themselves to be a fan of comics."
