‘Ninja Blast’ Comic Book Review

Ninja Blast‘ is an indie comic book written by L.J. “Fatal Jay” Upshaw and illustrated by Francis “Sarkui” Catindig who also did the cover.

Ace is a young African-American man living at the dojo of Sensei Hattori, who raised him in the secret ninja art of “Shadow Blast.” He has kept Ace in the dark about his father being murdered at the hands of General Ganto, the sensei’s brother. However, after promoting Ace at the dojo in the presence of the sensei’s grandchildren, Ace goes out to celebrate with a droid he created. He has a chance encounter with the general, who senses Ace is skilled in the Shadow Blast. This leads to trouble for Ace.

The illustrations from Catindig are impressive. They are a little rough in imitating the manga style he is going for, but I did like how each character had some unique designs.

As for the story, I loved it. It had some solid characters and I loved how it sets up the plot. Ace is a great character and while General Ganto has a smaller role, his presence as the antagonist is excellent. I found that it took the ninja genre and flipped it in a cool direction. I look forward to seeing where it goes from here.

In full disclosure, I did support the crowdfunding campaign to help raise money for the project.
