Marc Jackson launches “Bring the Ninja” on Instagram

Macclesfield-based cartoonist Marc Jackson is clearly determined to take over the entire internet.

Not content with running a smashing, free online service offering cartoon art workshops and activities for families on YouTube during the Coronavirus Pandemic, Marc has also just launched “Bring the Ninja“, a new comic on Instagram.

“Each strip will be released on Friday and features the ninja adventures of Chuck Chang, Floyd Fighter and a feast of funny book goof-balls,” Marc enthuses.

“It’s nice to be starting a regular comic series in these crazy times, using today’s technology that is helping so many of us with lifelines all over the world!”

From his strips in online comic Aces Weekly to his own superb self-published books to his work for Splank! and his recent work for a special “Kids Take Over” edition of The Big Issue, Marc’s style is instantly recognisable. He’s also organiser for MACC-POW, Macclesfield’s annual convention, sadly cancelled this year but back on 26th June 2021.
