Each individual is profiled with a full-page manga-style drawing and a dossier brimming with top-secret information, including photos, anecdotes, and dramatic stories of the individuals in action. "Ninja Attack!" is everything you always wanted to know about ninja but were too afraid you'd get a shuriken in the eye to ask.
"I wish I'd had this beautiful book back in 1983 when Kevin Eastman and I created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles -- it would have helped a lot! At the very least, the 'ninja stuff' in our comic book would have been quite a bit more authentic." - Peter Laird, Co-creator, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles "A must read for ninja fans! And the illustrations are brilliant! I wish there was a Japanese edition of this book." - Takashi Okazaki, Creator of "Afro Samurai"
