Happy 30th Anniversary Shi!

June 12th marks Ana Ishikawa, AKA, Shi’s Birthday. Even though in today’s comics Ana is 45 years old, “legally” she’s all but 30. It was on June 13, 1993, that Tucci received notification that Shi and its accompanying storyline was officially copyrighted and trademarked by US Copyright and Trademark Registration Office. Crusade Comics will be planning several special 30th Anniversary Specials for next month’s Comic Con International in San Diego and October’s New York Comic Con.
