In the year 1986, Rose Remington was a rising star in women’s martial arts. However, life threw her a few face punches that forced Rose to fall out of the International fighting championships. The only struggles she now faces are the large, testosterone-filled opponents that she takes on in underground fight tournaments while balancing her life as a fashion model. Rose’s martial arts trainer, now romantic love-interest, Ryu, has been by her side every step of the way. Strike Pup is, in every way, a comic with a Strong and Powerful female lead.
The comic is drawn in full pages of black and white digital ink. The shading technique makes very good use of screen-tones and crosshatching, which really add depth to the pages (especially during fighting sequences).
