Welcome to what I, xaos aka Jeremias de Leon, will now be calling StraightForward Reviews for all my comic reviews. This time I'll be looking at Legend of The Shadow Clan issue 4.
review by Jeremias de Leon
This issue sees the young members of the Himura family finding out they used to be ninjas. This would be cool if the way they found out if the young Morgan Himura wasn't being attacked by armed people. The rest of the issue sees her and her other family members try to deal with this information and try not to get killed. Just as you would expect if this happened in real life (because this happens all the time right?) they are more confused and questioning than accepting. All this of course leads to interesting fight and chase scenes.
If nothing else about this comic catches your fancy the art will. This comic is all about action sequences and they are all done spectacularly. The characters movements look great and impacts from hits look believable. The character designs are nice to look at as well.
At the end of the day this was a fun comic. If you decided to just jump in from this issue you might want to hold off on that and buy the previous 3 issues first. I usually don't mention buying previous issues in my reviews but for this series I believe that you should buy those issues to really enjoy this comic not to say that it isn't enjoyable on it's own. I give this an issue an 8.5 out of 10
