This page is possibly the greatest thing I’ve ever written. Not sure where to go from here.

There are six movies in Dude Shinobi’s Ninja Exploder series, with the most recent one being Ninja Exploder VI: Cult of the Satan Ninja, which is the movie that inspired the arcade game that Eddie and Joe are playing at the start of the comic. I actually wrote a synopsis for each movie in the series, along with how they were received by fans and critics. I even started writing a script for the first movie, just for fun.

We’ll probably end up showing more scenes from Dude Shinobi movies as part of our monthly bonus comic series for Jessica’s Patreon. Maybe we’ll even use that to eventually tell the complete story of one or more of the movies (the key moments, at least).

One of the challenges of creating this comic is that we want the SN8X-verse to walk a fine line, with one foot planted in wacky over-the-top land and the other foot planted in a land closer to reality. We feel that going too far into Wackyland can cause it to feel like nothing actually matters within the story, making it harder to actually become invested in it. That works fine for something that’s a pure comedy, but we feel that Satan Ninja 198X is a bit more than that. However, with the media within the SN8X-verse (like the Ninja Exploder series), we’re free to go as over-the-top and wacky as we want.

And here's a mega-minor site update for you: I added an entry for the Cowabunga Ninja Gators to the Glossary page.

Haha that Ninja Star joke was gold. I'm guessing someone's watching it at the movies? Or what I suspect on TV being watched by Eddie and Alex?
Also I think so far yous have done a good job of keeping the world consistent.

Thanks, Australian Dude! Yeah, this is the end of the movie Eddie and Alex are watching. The final panel was going to show them watching it, but Jessica thought showing them in the final panel would make it feel like it's supposed to be some kind of punchline that we reveal it's a movie they're watching, which wasn't our intent. So the next page will feature Eddie and Alex.

It's fairly obvious they're watching a movie to anyone who's been reading the comic. That star joke is about as tacky as they come hahaha. He might as well have said "I didn't know and I didn't care, I just wanted the fucker dead".

Placing the over-the-top stuff in films and video games etc is quite a cool solution actually. We're not invested in dude shinobi (not much anyway) so it can be as cheesy as it wants to be and it doesn't distract from the real story. Good call!

Here's a random tidbit of trivia for you: in my script for this page, the dude holding the President's Naked Daughter hostage is named Evil Business Man.

Yeah! We're smart.

I shall reward your praise with more trivia. Here are the titles of all six Ninja Exploder movies (though I might end up changing some later):

Ninja Exploder
Ninja Exploder II: Explosion Fist
Ninja Exploder III: Psycho Cyborg
Ninja Exploder IV: The Revenginator
Ninja Exploder V: Dude Goes to College
Ninja Exploder VI: Cult of the Satan Ninja

Haha after what I just posted over in the discuss anything side, I read this part of the thread and cracked up over this lol.   

I love this page, it is true 80's action genius.

While I don't think there's going to be any hardcore labia spreading or anything in this comic, I've already drawn several subtle crotch shots. There was Viper's shadow dong in Issue 1, Space Princess's blue bush in Issue 2 (though it absolutely looks like panties due to her inguinal creases, but it's a bit easier to tell she's "free-buffing" in the hi-res version), and you can totally see Minxy's pubes and pudendal cleft through her transparent underwear in the poster on Eddie's door in Issue 3 (also in Issue 2, but we finally see the poster up close in 3). I also made a Stripped to Kill parody desktop wallpaper featuring Veronica, a bikini version and a totally nude version with pubes, which is available to my patrons on Patreon.

In this page, the President's Naked Daughter's hands are bound, so it just seemed sort of natural for them to hang out in front of crotch-land. Plus, she's terrified and naked, so it also seemed natural for her to feel like covering up as best she could. As for the final shot, I dunno, the director of Ninja Exploder II just didn't want pubes in that particular shot.

labia spreading [...] inguinal creases [...] pudendal cleft

What are you, a doctor?

Yeah, I'm sure the director didn't want her bush to detract from the carefully constructed romance between his lead actors.

Either that or the dialogue, gotta catch that punchline!
