The Ninja Scouts (yes: Scouts who have ninja skills) are the focus of a one-shot comic issue from Scout Comics’ “Scoot” imprint.

It’s a fun read for the young; The Ninja Scouts and the Mask of Humbaba is written by Kevin Doyle, and illustrated by Martin Plsko. Letterer is Kevin D. Lintz.

Our story opens with some strange occurances at the home of Professors Simon and Pamela Smith. It seems there is
some supernatural power in the house!

The Ninja Scouts arrive to investigate, and our drama begins!

It’s heavy on action and enthusiasm, with Doyle focusing on what the Scouts can do and what they can’t! When the Pirate Scouts, the foils of the Ninja Scouts arrive on the scene and interfere, things get mighty complicated!

Artist Plsko keeps it fresh and fun, with good choreography, and tons of fun action and reactions.

Scout Comics, Scoot imprint, The Ninja Scouts #1, $3.99 for 28 pages of content.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
