Shi: Black, White & Red #1

Watermarked PDF
eath Has a New Face

Trying as she might, Ana Ishikawa never quite had a normal life. Born in Kyoto, Japan, she was raised as a devout Catholic by her American mother. But her Japanese grandfather trained her in the ways of his secret warrior sect, the sohei, until she was deadly enough to go forth and avenge her father's death at the hands of a Yakuza crimelord.

Dressed in red battle garb, her white face paint hiding her identity, Ana struck against her father's killer with such ferocity that she came to be known as "SHI" - the Japanese word for "death". But the bloody path of vengeance didn't square with her Christian values, and Ana ultimately renounced killing. Now, working in New York's exclusive Okie Gallery, she seeks to lead a more normal existence. But situations still arise where Shi's skills are required...and Ana is not one to turn a blind eye to injustice.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
