Based upon the hit series LEGO NINJAGO: MASTERS OF SPINJITZU that airs on the Cartoon Network, LEGO NINJAGO: MASTERS OF SPINJITZU #9: NIGHT OF THE NINDROIDS centers around Zane. Zane is actually a robot (I did not know this until reading this comic). While scouting out Ninjago City, the Overlord approaches Zane with an offer: he will transfer his mind into the body of a real person so that he can be human if Zane helps the Overlord capture the rest of the Masters of Spinjitzu. Zane isn't sure what to do. He likes his friends, but he wants to be able to understand jokes, to taste food, and have feelings. The dark side is so appealing.
LEGO NINJAGO: MASTERS OF SPINJITZU #9: NIGHT OF THE NINDROIDS is a book written towards those who are already fans of the cartoon series. I had read previous graphic novels in this series, but this book doesn't exactly follow what happened before in the graphic novels. I mean, in #8: DESTINY OF DOOM the Garmadon helped the Masters defeat a robot he created when he was evil. There's only a brief mention of that in this book and that's when Lloyd, the Green Ninja (he was gold in the last book) decides to go visit his dad, Garmadon, and try to spend some quality time together. So, although LEGO NINJAGO: MASTERS OF SPINJITZU #9: NIGHT OF THE NINDROIDS is an interesting story, I am disappointing that this series of the graphic novels no longer is following an overarching plot: I liked it when the graphic novels followed in line with each other better.
Overall, if you're a fan of the animated tv show LEGO: NINJAGO: MASTERS OF SPINJITZU, you might enjoy this book. However, if you're unfamiliar with the series, you might want to skip this book and read on of the earlier one.
