From publisher blurb:
More than simple assassins and agents of espionage, the ninja captures an air of mysticism and mystery. The following archetypes presented in this issue focus on the more supernatural aspects of this oriental character steeped both in history and legend. First of a two part series, this issue introduces the Earth Ninja, Fire Ninja, and the Metal Ninja. For the oriental understanding of the elements is not the same as the Greek and traditionally western held belief in four, but in the five: Earth, Fire, Metal, Water, and Wood. In addition, a sixth element - the Void - is also covered in this series. In addition, a few new ninja tricks are presented that may be incorporated in to any ninja's arsenal of gimmicks and tricks.
