“Fantastic! I can’t believe how much fun this was.” – Comic Book Club
Today Skybound and Image Comics, in partnership with global children’s book publisher AMEET, announced LEGO® NINJAGO®: SHATTERSPIN #1, the all-new series from critically acclaimed writer/artist Tri Vuong (Everyday Hero Machine Boy, LEGO NINJAGO: Garmadon).

New and longtime fans of the LEGO NINJAGO saga can expect to uncover the secret history of Garmadon with familiar faces and shocking first appearances in this new collaboration between the LEGO Group and Skybound.
As the world of Ninjago faces a threat unlike any before, young champion Garmadon sets off on a quest to discover the truth behind the legend of The Forbidden Five and a secret power that could turn the tide of the Serpentine War! But can Garmadon resist the temptation in front of him to save Ninjago, or will he be consumed by the power he’s so close to grasping?
