X Japan Frontman Gets Comic Book Hero Treatment In Blood Red Dragon

Stan Lee has created Blood Red Dragon, a brand new super-hero based on Yoshiki, rock icon/leader of the Japanese band X Japan. Lee, world-renowned comic book artist Todd McFarlane, and Yoshiki, have combined their talents for this new series, and will premiere the debut issue of the series at Comic-Con, which takes place in San Diego, CA on July 21st. The Blood Red Dragon comic book series will be published by Todd McFarlane Productions, and will feature a surprise, first-of-its kind publishing innovation.

Blood Red Dragon focuses on the origin of an ancient and benevolent force, locked in an epic battle with the dark armies of Oblivion. Creative expression and destiny collide, as once in a generation, an individual is born with the potential to unlock the awesome might of the Blood Red Dragon, thus channeling a power beyond comprehension and assuming the mantel of Earth's protector. When agents of Oblivion discover that the key to accessing the Blood Red Dragon's energy lays in music - the melodic heart of the human spirit - they launch a series of violent attacks on musicians across the globe. As he performs in front of a large crowd during the opening show of a massive world tour, drummer and keyboardist Yoshiki comes face-to-face with his destiny, experiencing a transformation that will forever change his life - and possibly the face of the world.
