(NEW) COVER for OBERON DESTROYERS: TAKEDOWN, Issue 6 of 12

TakedownCOVER_FNL
You can find the story (26 pages, up to part 5) here on this page (Free) Issue 6 – TakeDown

STYLE
Cover is a tribute to all the old cover artists of the Shadow by Maxwell Grant and others in pulp magazines of the 1930, which somehow works with the Japanese ad copy. I also surprised myself with all the Kaluta and Wrightston style touches. I first encountered their Shadow when I was eight (40 years ago). I loved their horror style on the Shadow, mixed with crime drama and pulp heroics.

TAKEDOWN CHAPTERS
Five chapters have already been completed (26 pages so far). Three more chapters left – I have been telling the story in a series of 4-8 page installments. I created a new page to group the entire story in one place for easy viewing. Please see here.

STORY
The Quiet Ninja is Japan’s Greatest Ninja and a key player in the secret Occult Wars. He is puritanical in his desire to destroy occult villains that seek to gain the upper hand against humans through sorcery and hocus pocus (see previous issues). His family has been on the frontline of this war for 2000 years. This issue is all action, and gets pretty bloody. Most of the story is silent action sequences with little or no dialogue.

Enjoy,
-B.

OBERON DESTROYERS: TAKE DOWN – PART 2 of 12 FOUR PAGES. Introduces Daisuke, the Ninja’s brother. I would finish it tonight, but I have had a fever for three weeks, so focus is difficult. I am flabbergasted I completed this much. I couldn’t fit Japanese and English onto the same page, so I prepared a short English script of people needing a translation.

ENGLISH SUBTITLES FOR PAGE ONE AND TWO ABOVE-

Ugamoto Family Jet
Private Air Field, Alaska, 100 miles from Enemy base.
T-Minus 2 weeks to Bomb Clock

Daisuke (Ninja’s younger brother)
RPG will be ready to fly, but can you skate this fast?

Ninja (in the shadows, standing by projector)
I think so.

Daisuke
Yeah but the Olympic record for 500 meters is 35 seconds. Are you that fast?

Ninja
Yes. I’ve been training on skates for 6 months as a part of regular mission training.

Daisuke
And?

Ninja
You pants are falling down.

Daisuke
Yeah yeah yeah, already an old man at 33, huh?

Ninja
Shut up. I broke the speed skating record last month, though in secret. I’ll be fine. How’s the hack going of the enemy’s IT?

Daisuke
It’s going. The enemy’s IT admin and software vendors are all very inattentive, lazy types. There’s tons of backdoors to exploit.

Ninja
Last year, a sabotage team of agents working for us became the enemy’s software vendor. They actually renewed their contract with the client for one more year.

Daisuke
Oh you are sneaky, big brother. On Game Day, I’ll be taking down the enemy’s IT system by remote. I even have Stuxnet from the NSA.

Ninja
How did that happen?

Daisuke
I went to school with a guy who’s now an IT manager for Japan’s Self Defense Force HQ. He think’s we’re “Anonymous.”

Ninja
Careful! Don’t bring the heat. What if he talks?

Daisuke
No worries. Everything was done according to Ugamoto Spy Protocols. He knows nothing. He thinks I’m another classmate. Besides, I had to get creative. You only gave me two weeks.

Ninja
We’ll, I’ve been busy. Sacramento and Oberon business eats all my time recently. What are you doing after this?

Daisuke
Mom (the pilot) wants to go whale watching off Alaska’s coast. Are you infiltrating the enemy base one more time before the day we turn on the Bomb Clock?

Ninja
Yeah. In an hour I’m jumping from 4000 feet into the Enemy Base Zone, and going in one more time before we take them down.

MOM
Hey you kids, I have hot tea. Shall I heat up some curry rice too?

Daisuke
Ye——-s!

Ninja
Ye——-s!

葉隠 Hagakure: Way of Revenge

ArchivesButton

ON REVENGE.

I am reminded of a quote from the Hagakure (Way of Revenge), which I choose in October of 2012 as my key note for my character The Quiet Ninja and issue six of Oberon Destroyers (Take Down). The Hagakure is a keystone document in Japanese literary history, touching both samurai and buddhist ideals:

“The way of revenge lies in simply forcing one’s way into a place, and being cut down. There is no shame in this. By thinking that you must complete the job, you will run out of time. By considering things like how many men the enemy has, time piles up. In the end you will give up.

No matter if the enemy has thousands of men, there is fulfillment in simply confronting them, determined to cut them all down, starting from one end.

You will finish the greater part of it.”

From Hagakure, Code of the Samurai
From the book by Yamamoto Tsunetomo
