The Great Beasts have been unleashed. The war has begun. Gaming superstar Ninja returns in the sequel to the graphic novel Ninja: The Most Dangerous Game! Empowered by the show of resilience from Ninja and his friends in the Ketterung—a broadcasted battle-royale game realm controlled by evil overlord Strigus Thule—the people in all of Thule’s 1000 Dominions are now rebelling. In response, Thule decides to unleash his Great Beasts, the most powerful victors from previous games, kept to serve as the villainous gamemaster’s tools for all of eternity. Rather than use their remaining energy to return home at the end of their game, Ninja convinces his friends to stay and help him free the Dominions from Thule’s tyrannic rule. Will the tenacity, integrity, and camaraderie that kept our hero and his crew alive in the first challenge help them defeat the horrifying Great Beasts—and Strigus Thule himself?
People hunting people for sport—an idea both shocking and fascinating. In 1924 Richard Connell published a short story that introduced this concept to the world, where it has remained ever since—as evidenced by the many big- and small-screen adaptations and inspirations. Since its publication, Connell’s award-winning “The Most Dangerous Game” has been continuously anthologized and studied in classrooms throughout America. Raising questions about the nature of violence and cruelty, and the ethics of hunting for sport, the thrilling story spawned a new cinematic subgenre, beginning with RKO’s 1932 production of The Most Dangerous Game, and continuing right up to today. This book examines in-depth all the cinematic adaptations of the iconic short story. Each film chapter has a synopsis, a “How Dangerous Is It?” critique, an overall analysis, a production history, and credits. Five additional chapters address direct to video, television, game shows, and almost “dangerous” productions. Photographs, extensive notes, bibliography and index are included.
