Straight Forward Reviews : Shinobi Ninja Princess # 1

Taking inspiration from the assassins of feudal Japan a new series is set to debut in August. Here's an advanced review.

Writer - Martheus Wade

Artist - Martheus Wade

Publisher - Action Lab

Review by Jeremias de Leon


The story revolves as the title suggests, a Shinobi Princess who seems to be on the run from some very scary people. As this is the first issue the author decided to have it be an introduction to the characters, their motivations, and their personalities. As an issue for character introductions and hooking people in, it did well enough. It could have used a little bit extra space to give at least glimpses into the motivations of some characters to define them a little better but that isn't to say they are vague.

There's some nice action here too. What you would want out of a comic about ninjas. There's stealth, martial arts and weapons and it's done satisfyingly enough. The comic definitely lets you know there's plenty more even cooler things to come too.


The art seems to be a mix of anime inspired and classic western action cartoon inspired and it's pretty cool. Some of the character designs stand out more than others but they're cool. The designs that stand out to me in particular are Megumi and the female villain. The action scenes are pretty nicely done and look like they could be from a cartoon, which is a good thing. Given the design style that means they look like they flow well.

For a first issue it does its job and it does it well. It introduced the protagonists and antagonists and set up their personalities. It also built up what seems to be a deeper story than it lets on and entices people to pick up issue 2. If it had at least two more pages, this comic's story runs for 20, it probably could have gone a bit more into why Shianndrea's power is important or how she left her father. But all in all it's a solid book. I give Shinobi Ninja Princess # 1 an 8 out of 10.
