The Challenge of Samukai is a LEGO Ninjago book that was released in 2011. As the first volume of the Ninjago graphic novel series, it does not correspond with the plot of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.


The "Masters of Spinjitzu" come to Papercutz in their first graphic novel appearance written by Greg Farshtey, the hit force behind the LEGO BIONICLE series.

Under the tutelage of their master Sensei Wu, the "chosen four" ninjas Kai, Jay, Cole, and Zane must learn to use their elemental powers of fire, ice, lightning and earth. Their mission: defeat Sensei Wu’s evil brother Garmadon and his army of skeleton warriors before they can take over the world!
