Author Saurav Dutt combined forces with Scattered Studios to create an action packed comic book title entitled ‘SWORD’. With a new script, cover, artists and production schedule, work gathers pace on the violent Expendables inspired action novella which features a main character modelled and inspired on action star actor Steven Seagal; whose likeness will also appear in the comic as well.

The Steven Seagal inspired character is a sensei, gifted an ancient samurai sword by his masters in Japan . After opening a dojo in the US, he is attacked by jealous Yakuza drug lords intent on depriving a ‘foreigner’ of the honourable sword and returning it to its rightful place. Left for dead, the main character uses all his martial arts expertise-and background in the Navy Seals, CIA and Black Ops-to get back the sword and inflict a very bloody and furious vengeance ‘Old Boy’ style on those who wronged him.

The writer/creator, Saurav Dutt, is bringing a new artistic direction with his epic novel and has selected his new creative team of Marcelo Salaza to provide the intense and expolsive artwork that will contain intense fight scenes, While Mike Stefan will add his digital coloring.  Jason Dube will be providing the text and pre-pres. Hot on the heels of action packed movies like The Expendables starring Sylvester Stallone, Jean Claude Van Damme and Jason Statham, ‘SWORD’ is a throwback to the violent action movies of their era, collating all the one liners, fight scenes, thrills and attitude of Seagal’s best movies like ‘Under Siege’, ‘Out for Justice’ and ‘Marked for Death’.

Saurav commented ‘The idea behind Sword is to provide a story of honour and betrayal, delving into the world of a master swordsman and providing a classic story of vengeance-a very brutal vengeance. I grew up on these movies, films like The Expendables are like being in a candy store-now it’s my turn to create my own spin on the genre-if you’ve enjoyed a Seagal or Van Damme starrer then this is going to deliver that and then some-balls to the wall violence, mayhem, havoc and enough blood to make Kill Bill look like Despicable Me”

Sword continues to be produced by Scattered Studios and after the issue has been completed it will go to a print on demand publisher before being distributed to comic book conventions. Writer/Creator Saurav Dutt has had critical and commercial success writing biographies on major Hollywood actors such as Mickey Rourke, Corey Haim and ‘Jaws’ actor Roy Scheider. He is currently negotiating to interview Top Gun and Batman Forever actor Val Kilmer for an upcoming biography on the ‘Heat’ actor due to release in Spring 2014. His first book of fiction-entitled ‘An Orchid In the Snow’-releases Fall 2013 and follows his first spoken word music project ‘The Dreaming’ available on Soundcloud and CD Baby.
