Ninja High School – and Antarctic Press – Celebrate 35 Years In May 2020

In May 2020, Antarctic Press will publish Ninja High School #177 by Ben Dunn, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the comic book – and the publisher who began with its first issue, Antarctic Press. Not only will it publish the issue, which will see the return of the school, and with original characters who escaped to another reality, returning to put right what once went wrong  – but they will publish a black-and-white edition just like the old days. And an Anniversary Special which will reprint the first issue in original black-and-white – and in colour, and a history of the comic book and publisher…  and a look at what is next for the franchise.

It's all in Antarctic Press' May 2020 solicitations;
