In 2016, after a long, silent hiatus, The Kick-Ass Mystic Ninjas is slowly crawling out of the ashes, but the goal is still to discuss classic science fiction, fantasy, and horror literature and films.
David Moldawer started out as a Dragon Page reviewer, and attained the rank of Ninja Scholar and Scrollkeeper after passing his Ninja Final Exam with flying colors in a brilliantly executed listener ambush. He also had his own show, The Morning Brew.
Brian Brown, then co-host with Wingin It and Dragon Page, joined as a ninja-in-training, and soon became a new regular ninja, picking up the geek analysis that Joe Murphy was no longer able to participate in.
Jen Crawford joined the show as a junior ninja, bringing a fresh younger perspective to the discussions.
Joe Murphy was diagnosed with a virulent cancer in November 2006, and passed away on April 1, 2007. He will be missed.
