THE GOAL...

  • To print NINJA BASEBALL MAN, VOL. 1 as a Trade Paperback. NBBM, VOL. 1 contains the NINJA BASEBALL MAN, Issues 1-5, which will also be available to backers digitally! 
  • To give the NBBM fans the resurgence of the franchise that they have been waiting for years and to bring in new fans while we are at it!

UP TO THE PLATE...  

NINJA BASEBALL MAN is a comic series based off of the cult classic video game Ninja Baseball Bat Man. The series follows Jose Majors, a veteran baseball player towards the end of his career in the American Baseball League, who lives a dual life as the superhero Ninja Baseball Man (NBBM). With all the skills of a Ninja, Jose — as Ninja Baseball Man — plans to spoil the evil plots of zany baseball themed villains! 

NINJA BASEBALL MAN, VOL. 1 is the innovative retelling of the classic Ninja Baseball Bat Man video game story line. We have all of the NBBM favorites as well as some fresh new characters! 

THE STORY

Without giving too much away, the story of NBBM, VOL. 1 follows the journey of Jose Majors from struggling American baseball vet to Japanese baseball star to the crime fighting "Ninja Baseball Man" to American baseball vet re-surging his stardom while fighting crime as the vigilante "Ninja Baseball Man." (now that's a mouthful)

The golden statue of "The Babe" has been stolen from the American Baseball League's Hall of Fame and Ninja Baseball Man is out to solve the mystery! Of course there will be a few problems: 1.) NBBM will have to battle various baseball-themed villains, 2.) NBBM has to figure out who the mysterious boss of the villains is, 3.) everybody including the police think that NBBM is behind the robbery, and 4.) Jose Majors has to maintain his career as a baseball player. Jose certainly has his work cut out for him!

But that's nothing our hero can't handle! ... Hopefully.


GAME PLAN… 

Manager Drew Maniscalco has brought in some top prospects to work NBBM. The fast-fingered writer, Sal Brucculeri, and dangerous right-handed artist, Monique Blaize. The pair have been working hard putting together the first five issues of Ninja Baseball Man and are ready to show the world what they have come up with. We need more players to fill our roster… That is where of all of you come in. We need to get the Kickstarter Community to load the bases so NBBM could hit a grand-slam and bring everybody home to the Ninja Baseball Man franchise!

REWARDS...



Risks and challenges

RISKS AND CHALLENGES?

Hmm... We guess a sinker is a challenge... So is a screw ball, a spit ball, a curve ball, fast ball, slider, and-- Wait... Do you mean Kickstarter risks and challenges?

Right... So, all 5 issues are complete and if this is a success we will be able to print.

We feel that our main challenge will be maintaining our intended shipping schedule, but this will depend on how fast our printer could ship us our order. We are confident that all of the rewards will arrive to our backers just in time for the end of the MLB Season and Playoffs.
