Yi Soon Shin is a lavish comic book series based on the true story of Admiral Yi Soon Shin, a Korean naval commander who saved his people from Japanese invasion forces during the Imjin War (1592-1598). Outgunned, outnumbered, but never outwitted, Yi Soon Shin won 23 consecutive victories and drove the invaders out of his country. Each issue of the comic focuses on an important battle that helped change the course of the war and define Yi’s legacy. An international sales sensation, the hit YI SOON SHIN series has achieved major milestones at comic book conventions around the world and is the first series in history to complete the 1500 Comic Book Battle – not once, but twice! – at New York Comic-Con and sell out at over 60 conventions worldwide. Over the course of his career, Admiral Yi fought in at least 23 naval engagements, all against the Japanese. In most of these battles, he was outnumbered and lacked necessary supplies. His most famous victory occurred at the Battle of Myeongnyang, where despite being outnumbered 133 warships to 13, he managed to disable or destroy 31 of the 133 Japanese warships without losing a single ship of his own. Yi died from a gunshot wound at the naval Battle of Noryang on December 16, 1598. His last words, “the battle is at its height. Beat my war drums. Do not announce my death”, are often cited as an important part of his character.
