‘Hunter Ninja Bear’ Makes Its Roaring Debut
Sep 16, 2022
Fenom Comics proudly releases their debut graphic novel, Hunter Ninja Bear. This first volume Provenance meticulously recounts an origin story erased from history books a long time ago by historians long forgotten.
Three supreme forces of nature become eternally tied to one another through fate. Battling to survive their ruthless triangle of death, they fight not to perish in the unforgiving circle of life.
A lone ninja finds his efforts to be futile in stopping the brutal massacre of his entire village by a horde of preternatural bears, who have descended upon the humans in retaliation for the sins against their ancestral remains.
Fully aware of his inability to avenge his village against the mighty beasts, Satoru looks to his Gods of War for spiritual guidance in this quest.
Their answer is clear. Vengeance cannot be wielded by the blade of his sword, but only at the end of a rifle belonging to the legendary American frontiersman, John Wilkers.
Before setting on the long and arduous journey to the western world, Satoru is confronted by a young lady, Hana, from a nearby village. Knowing only of Satoru’s famed ninja days, she begs him to be her sensei and to take her along on his quest. He reluctantly agrees, only because this orphan is no stranger. Hana does not know that she owes her life to a noble deed that Satoru had made 18 years ago.
Sailing into the San Francisco Bay on the last night of 1848, fireworks light up the sky. Luckily for the weary travelers, the John Wilkers and his truest companion Little Heart are soon located and politely propositioned for the task at hand.
Wilkers sees Satoru’s job offer as a gift from God and becomes obsessed with the idea of finally having his long-overdue audience with the great bear immortalized in the glorious Indian legends, Fire Cloud.
Along with their ragtag gang of ten very accomplished hunters and trackers, Wilkers and Little Heart embark on the ambitious expedition to a land completely unknown to them all. With all the opposing forces now in place, the fight is on!
The critics have spoken:

The fans have spoken:
“Finished Hunter Ninja Bear and damn if this isn't the best comic I've read this year.”
“Is there a timeframe for when volume 2 of HNB will be released? I really like the first arc conclusion, and then an exciting setup for the next arc!”
“The Dirty Dozen meets the White Buffalo. Such a great saga. Such an engrossing story. Superb art and inking. Read it in 2 days. Well worth the purchase.”
“… it is phenomenal. I love that Hunter Ninja Bear was packaged as a complete book, verses it being split into 12 issues over 12 months. Having to read this engrossing story over 12 months, I think could be classified as some type of torture. LOL I hope all of Fenom Comics’ future titles are released this way.”

“I just finished Hunter Ninja Bear! Bravo! That was absolutely incredible. This product is really something special!”
