After the previous installment in the graphic novel series (LEGO NINJAGO #5: KINGDOM OF THE SNAKES), the Spinjitzu masters, Jay, Cole, Zane, Kai, and Sensei Wu are left to travel on foot without the Weapons of Spinjitzu and without their powers. In LEGO NINJAGO #6: WARRIORS OF STONE they come across a forest made entirely of stone. At first they believe it to be some artistic masterpiece. However, it becomes clear that there is some kind of enchantment at work that has turned the forest to stone and it’s up to the Masters of Spinjitzu to discover exactly what that is. I was really impressed by the quality of this graphic novel. The illustrations are really colorful and look like an animated cartoon instead of panels from a graphic novel. I was also surprised at how good the story was. I wasn’t expecting a graphic novel about Lego ninjago warriors to keep my interest so well; I thought it would be kind of a kiddie version of MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS with Legos. Instead, it was more like the original TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES. I’m looking forward to reading the next volume in the series.
