Continuing news from Comic-Con in San Diego, one of today’s big announcements is for LEGO Ninjago fans! Papercutz – publisher of the very popular Ninjago novels – announced at their booth that they will continue the Ninjago novel series through 2014. They will be the only new Ninjago stories between now and when the Ninjago feature-film comes out. 🙂
Papercutz also revealed a Comic-Con exclusive Ninjago poster, only available as a gift-with-purchase at the their booth at Comic-Con. The image shows a small sampling of the villains Sensei Wu and the ninja have faced over the years, which is especially relevant now that they have their biggest challenge ever coming up next year. The Papercutz team believes that the Masters of Spinjitzu are real heroes, and they wanted to celebrate another year of new adventures with an image that shows how far they’ve come! And the classic Japanese movie-poster style gives a nod to Ninjago’s inspirational roots.
Jesse Post, Marketing Director of Papercutz says: “We’re really excited to continue the story! I know fans have been clamoring for new Ninjago anything since the TV show finished, and our books will now continue through this year and into next. Unless the show is renewed, this will be it until the movie comes out. Our plan is to publish a new book every season (every four months), as we have been. The creative team (Greg Farshtey and Jolyon Yates) will be the same as well.”
Here are some details on the first Ninjago book that will be published in 2014: The Masters of Spinjitzu return! The saga continues here, and only here! After the defeat of the Stone Warriors, Jay, Cole, Zane, and Kai have to regroup fast when an even greater challenge rises from the shadows. With their ranks divided against the most sinister, most unstoppable foe they have ever faced, the ninja must call upon everything they’ve learned from Sensei Wu… and more. This is the one you’ve been waiting for! All-new high-kicking action from the world of Ninjago! The book will be 64 pages. Price: $6.99 (paperback), $10.99 (hardcover). Release date: January 28, 2014. You can read more about the book on Papercutz website.
While you are waiting you can check out the currently available LEGO Ninjago books by Papercutz on Amazon. They are excellent books for Ninjago fans of all ages! I read them all myself. 😉
So what do you think? How do you like the news that more Ninjago stories are coming? Have you read the previous books? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! Also, the creative team behind the Ninjago stories is happy to answer questions from Ninjago fans. If you do have any questions, ask them in the comment section and I will forward them to Greg and Jolyon. 🙂

” they will continue the Ninjago novel series through 1014″
They’re going back in time?
I thought that as well 😀
LOL! Yeah, why not?
What is on that poster? There’s like bugs, fish-people, warriors, and some guy with 6 arms and axes. I am concerned for the fate of Ninjago.
Don’t worry! These are all simply old foes of Sensei Wu that came back to haunt him in the Ninjago Graphic Novel #7: Stone Cold. These enemies were fought in a flashback of Sensei Wu’s days before training the Ninja. However, I noticed something peculiar: I’m pretty sure that frosty ninja and that stick-carrying, caped man wasn’t on that book. Hint of a concept, anyone?
Yeah, I don’t remember the caped guy either. ALthough I have read the books a while ago. I would have to pull them out and read them again. The stories are actually pretty advanced. 🙂
The crystalline-looking ninja is from a montage sequence in that book. He’s not named but Sensei Wu faces him on page 47 “in the lair of the living diamonds”. The caped fellow and some of the other figs on this page are unnamed, but they appear in one panel on page 46.
Aanchir, nice! Thanks for helpig out! 🙂
PLEASE SOMEBODY ANSWER THIS QUESTION!!!!!!!! is the TV coming back? please say yes! if its just the books I wont be able to get to read them 🙁 please let the TV show come back! please 🙁 it sounded like its just the book 🙁
I don’t know if the TV is coming back, but I know that the tv SHOW is coming back.
Yes the show is coming back on December 18th with at least 8 new episodes. Check out Jay Vincent’s website to see the announcement. So EXCITED!!!!!!!!! YAY CANT WAIT!!!
ha-ha, thanks Skippy. (i’m not being sarcastic)
Admin, it’s 2014 not 1014 right?
Yes, it’s 2014!
Hey admin it looks like in the poster one side is blue one side is red so
My theory is maybe they might be 2 tribes and are there any lego series that to lego minifigs with 6 arms if there is can you please post it up on
Are you talking about the 6-armed guy with the axes? He is in one of the stories in the books. I forgot which one, but I can look it up if you are interested. He never appeared in a LEGO set.
The 6 armed warrior is in Stone Cold. He was one of the enemies Sensei had to fight when the Tower of Tears was destroyed. As you can probably tell, I have read these books a lot so if there are any questions about the books, you can ask me! 🙂
Ah, thanks! Good to know that you are an expert on the books as I read them a while ago and don’t remember all the details. I will direct questions to you next time someone asks. 😀
Sure thing! Cant wait for anything Ninjago to come out!
Admin I meant like is there another six armed minifig like the one in the poster the guy with axes
There are two four armed minifigs: Lord Garmadon and the Stone Warrior leader, General Kozu. There are no six-armed minifigs. 🙄
Unless you make one…
Someone catch me before I faint from all this LEGO awesomeness……
Are the rumours about the 2014 sets true.
Nobody knows for sure yet there is neither official or leaked info, but I’m pretty positive there are going to be sets because the TV show is confirmed. 😉
Hooray for comic-con! I didn’t get to see the ninjago panel 🙁 but it was still fun to go. btw, I was looking through my book shelf when I found some ninjago book. I wondered how did these get there cause I didn’t own any. then I looked at the side: property of (censored name of city) library. AW MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
life is funny. the day I found all those old library books is the day I get a letter from the library. guess who owes 80.00 dollars in late fees? not me I only owe $27 🙂
Someday I will go to Comic Con!… maybe when I’m older but I shall go someday!!!
Comic-Con is awesome this year was my FIRST TIME going!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(All the way from England!)
Oh, really? Would you like to share more? 😉
Lloyd, The Golden Ninja, if u are reading this and you still want volunteers for your story i got one.
Ninja name: Jason
Ninja color: Silver
Ninja power: The Storm
Ninja weapon: Golden double bladed sword.
p.s. check out the weapon at: http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&docid=toHpmor8OOjsDM&tbnid=sM29WgAQW3VX8M:&ved=0CAgQjRwwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fninjago.wikia.com%2Fwiki%2FGolden_Double-Bladed_Sword&ei=kdn7UfzyD4idiALQ_4CgBg&psig=AFQjCNHOS2-k3gXrnWQc6mG3eZdId-9w0w&ust=1375546129294755
If Jay Vincent says get ready for many, many flutes…wouldn’t that mean the serpentine return? I mean their weakness is the sacred flutes of Ninjago.
Perhaps… but it could also mean a completely new story with new characters, and they are just using flutes because flutes are awesome! 🙂
It may also mean many of his music involves flutes… Like the original theme song. It’s main part was played by a flute.
Hiyah guys guess what her is a little info about what the ninjas will be fighting in the next season If you have noticed the first season 1 is ninja vs skeleton and season 2 ninja vs serpentine and finally ninja vs stone army in season 3
So I have realised all the enemies the ninja fight begin with the letter S
So the enemies they are fight begin with S
I realized that I while ago, I had wondered if anyone caught that too. I heard though that the possible enemies are Nindroids…
I kinda like the new villains in this story. The only thing is chirchonn the invincible. I like four arms, but I would draw the line there. General grievous was cool, Samukai was cool, garmadon looked nice too, but circhonn kinda amped things up a little too far.
so there wont be another season? just the movie?
It seems to be both. 🙄
well that’s good! I wanted another season! 😀
Admin when will there be another update on Ninjago?
Ronald, there has been no news lately, so I can’t think of anything to write about right now. But as soon as I hear something newsworthy I will let you guys know. The last thing I heard, a couple of days ago is that a Ninjago castle is coming soon, but no details are known as of yet. 😉
Is there any information on when the TV series will be aired??
Hey admin I made a Youtube account and I wanna make LEGO Annamtions do you know a good softwhere I can use?
Ranald, there is a kid who does excellent LEGO animation tutorials. Let’s see… let me try to find it… just a sec… okay, found it, check here: http://chickenfeetfilms.com/category/brickfilm-academy/
I have been gone for so long… Glad to be back!
I saw this and thought it was talking about the TV show… Whoops! Still exciting though! I love the graphic novels! =D
Love those smiley faces! 😀 😛
LOL! I was just thinking of you like two days ago! I was thinking… well, Lexi is growing up and probably lost her interes in Ninjago. Nice to have you back! There is a Ninjago movie coming for sure, and the new TV show season should start back up sometime next year. 😛
Yeah, i didn’t lose interest, just not really much to say when there is nothing new coming out.
Wow, the amount of comments have really gone downhill… 🙁
Yeah, there is not so much to talk about Ninjago at this point. Although there is still some story-writing going on occasionally. I think they are on the last episode. Kids who are into Ninjago either migrated to Chima, other LEGO themes, or stopped talking. 🙄
Im still here! Rarely…
No Offence but I don’t like really like Chima well its allright..
*Cough* Pythor may return *Cough*
Anyway, i’ll be watching you! I’ll be watching you…
What’s this “current year” bar under the comment section?
Current year bar? I don’t see anything like that. There are the comments, then the comment box, trackbacks, and previous and next post. At least that’s what I see. 😕
I have a bar right under the submit button that says,”Current ye@r* 1980″
It dosn’t matter anyways
LOL! I have no idea how that would happen. It is not from TBB. 😉
Budder Ninja did you by any chance get your name from skythekidrs?
You could say it was inspired by him 😀
Btw, I live in the same state as him 🙂
Nice. He moved to LA recently though.
It’s sad… For me 😀
It fell silent all of a sudden…
I’m still waiting for any news on Ninjago. I keep checking but we are being kept in the dark.
I just posted the new upcoming sets in the discussion under Episode 26. 😉
hey oh can’t wait!
hey if anyone wants to watch the mini movie seven then all you have to do is go on http://www.youtube.com then type in your search as ninjago mini movie (KOREAN) with subtitles!
OH MY GOSH!!!!! LEXI YOUR BACK!!
I keep thinking….man….I wish Lexi was still here….everyone has left me!! 😛 😛 BUT NOW!! YOUR BACK 😀
Ugh! I NEED A NEW POST!!
They are coming! There will be a post tomorrow, as well as on Sunday so we can discuss all the awesome news! 😛
I’m going to start posting in the most recent ninjago post. Just to let you know 😉
But the question really is, will the tv series continue or not any longer? Or just the comics?
My understanding is that there will be a TV series, a movie, and of course the comics will continue as well. 😉
I’ve got all 8!!!
Guys!! There’s going to be a 10th book called The Phantom Ninja!!! I found it on Amazon!!
I have never been on this site before. I want to know how to change your picture and add emoticons. And yes, I am realy Zane, ninja of ice(or mayby nindroid). Jay wanted me to say hi to all his fans. And Cole says keep danceing and stay strong! Kai says never give up. And Lloyd says stay gold. AND Nya says keep inventing and girl power. Woo! That’s a mouthful. Well talk to me if you are interested in, well, talking to me. Please comment.
PS: I am not weird! and PSS: Jay made me put my name as Zane, “nindroid” of ice.
Zane, go to gravatar.com to create your picture. It is very easy, and it will automatically show up here. 😉
If you need anyone to chat with, Zane, I’m always here! Tell the Ninja I say Hi! 🙂
