"I'm really looking forward to the Bleed Them Dry Japanese sake brand launching in the U.S.," said Amano.

"It's connected to the American comic book series that was quite successful with sci-fi horror fans. The concept of the 'Ninja Vampire' is both frightful and thrilling, and I put those mixed feelings into creating the image that will be presented with 'BTD Red' and 'BTD Black'. 

Both are Junmai Daiginjo super premium sake and produced by the Asahara Shuzo brewery, which has a great reputation. 

I hope you will enjoy the sake and my work. Kampai!"

Created by Hiroshi Koizumi and developed by Lotus Group and Nagoya TV (Metele), the American comic book series was written by Eliot Rahal, illustrated by Dike Ruan, and published by Vault Comics. Bleed Them Dry was named the Best Horror Comic of 2020 by CBR.com. 

Earlier this year, a limited special edition of Bleed Them Dry was released in Kinokuniya bookstores in the U.S. featuring new cover artwork created by Amano. 

An animated series is currently in development from producer F.J. DeSanto, who also produced the comic book series.

Amano is known to anime and video game fans around the world for his illustration and designs for the Final Fantasy series, Vampire Hunter D, Gatchaman, and Casshern, among numerous others.

Amano was nominated for a Hugo Award for his work on The Sandman: The Dream Hunters with famed comic book writer Neil Gaiman, who called Amano "an artist for the next century". 

He illustrated the Marvel Comics series Wolverine and Elektra: The Redeemer and was the subject of a 328-page hardcover biography titled Yoshitaka Amano: The Illustrated Biography—Beyond the Fantasy published by Dark Horse.

Amano's visionary talent has received increasing interest from major entertainment brands. In 2019, Amano created an original portrait of the planeswalker Liliana for Magic: The Gathering's War of the Spark release. 

In 2021, he was commissioned to create special cover illustrations for DC Comics, including Harley Quinn, Superman Red and Blue, and Suicide Squad. 

Netflix's recently announced space horror anime series Exception will feature character designs by Amano. 

The Bleed Them Dry Premium Sake project is overseen by Japanese Sake Sisters, LLC, in the U.S.

ABOUT VAULT COMICS

Escape Ordinary.

Creating science fiction, fantasy, and horror requires confronting the new, the bizarre, the unimagined. In these genres, creators can break the established order, dissolve conceptions of social identity, and give voices to the silenced. They can ask hard questions, and if they are brave, venture bold answers.

Beyond the page, Vault actively develops its library across a wide range of media, including film, television, audio productions, and video games.

Founded in 2016 by Damian Wassel (CEO), Adrian Wassel (CCO), Nathan Gooden (Art Director), and Damian Wassel, Sr. (Co-founder), Vault is a closely-held privately-owned company.
