Review: Lego Ninjago Volume 2 - Mask of the Sensei by Greg Farshtey and Paulo Henrique
Publisher: Titan Comics
Released: October 17th, 2014
Cole, Zane, Jay, and Kai, the Masters of Spinjitzu, have defeated unbelievably powerful foes and all seems well on the world of Ninjago. But all that changes when the ninja are attacked by the one foe they cant hope to defeat, the one who taught them - Sensei Wu! This is a nightmare come true when they must somehow defeat their respected teacher and friend - or do they?!
I enjoyed this second Ninjago comic almost as much as the first, maybe even a little bit more. It's one long story rather than being split into several parts, and this time it's all about Sensei Wu attacking the ninjas - he's not behaving like himself but is there a more sinister evil at work?
Cole, Zane, Jay and Kai, the Masters of Spinjitzu, know something isn't right and they end up going on separate quests to hunt for impossible things. A scale from an angry dragon, a snowball from the desert... all items that are almost impossible to find. It's great to read about how the ninjas go about finding these things, and it gets pretty exciting towards the end!
Once again this comic is brilliantly written and illustrated, and it's just a genuinely fun read for kids and adults alike. I'm now well-versed in the world of Ninjago and Spinjitzu, and I'll most probably read more volumes in this series. They're a quick read but so entertaining, great for lazy afternoons when you're in a Lego mood!
