In my original script for this issue, back when the comic was still called Shinobi Fist - Legend of the Badass Ninja
, I had a trio of ski-mask wearing, gun-toting, normal ol' burglars doing the break-in. Jessica convinced me to change them into ninjas so that the comic wouldn't take so long to get to ninja action. At the time, I envisioned our main character to be the only ninja in the comic, so I was hesitant to make the change. But I became sold once we decided on making the robbers not just ninjas, but Satan worshiping ninjas. In fact, the idea of a "Satan Ninja" amused us so much that we decided to turn our main character into one (of sorts), which resulted in the comic getting a name change.
