This is a comic that I’d had in development off and on for over a decade, and in early 2016 I finally decided to pull the trigger and draw it. Set in an Asian-themed fantasy world, this adventure was heavily inspired by the classic Journey to the West, featuring a pair of circus performers, the night that turned their lives upside down, and the mysterious ninja who appears to protect them. I completed 4 chapters by the end of 2018; however, the pacing of the story just wasn’t fitting the weekly release schedule. I want to return to the Ninja Monkey universe in the future, possibly with a revised art style and a quicker narrative. I don’t regret the time I spent on it, though. As my first attempt at a long-form comic, I learned a lot and stretched myself in ways I hadn’t imagined!
