Dark Horse Releases ‘Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z’ Comic


To coincide with the release of Team Ninja’s upcoming Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, Dark Horse has released the first issue of a companion comic via their digital store.

Written by Tim Seeley (Army of Darkness vs. Hack/Slash) and Josh Emmons (Ex Sanguine) and featuring art by Rafael Ortiz, the first issue details the life of the eponymous Yaiba before he became a zombie-slaying cyborg ninja and how his katana came to be known as “Heartless.”  Maybe because it keeps on sinnin’ in the name of rock and roll?

You can get the first issue for free from Dark Horse via the aforementioned digital store, or through their iOS and Android apps.  A physical version of the comic will be released alongside the game on March 18th which, sadly, is a 2 week delay from its original release date of March 4th.
