Part OneEdit

Before she became Lobster Johnson’s biggest foe, the Crimson Lotus was a young girl whose family was caught up in the Russo-Japanese war. Thirty years later, the Lotus exacts her revenge with terrifying international ramifications, and two spies must try to chase her through China before they become flies in her web.

Part TwoEdit

Secret agent Dai and the man he is protecting take a tumultuous train ride across Japanese-occupied China only to be faced with new allies... and new enemies.
