Wang Ho ran from 1985 to 1990 in the pages of Ninja Pocketkomiks (later Ninja Komiks), published by Atlas Publishing Co., Inc. Though the characters and setting were basically Chinese, the series was conceived by Filipino creators Rod Santiago (writer) and Ruding Mesina (illustrator).
THE LEGEND OF THE GOLDEN NINJA
Master Yin Shan's Pitong Bagwis ("Seven Wings") were the most feared fighters in all the land. When they challenge the temple of Master Hong Tien Lung, the brothers Wang and Tsing Ho step up to face them. But the seven deadly warriors prove much too formidable, leading to Tsing Ho's violent death at their hands.
Vowing to avenge his brother's death and restore his people's honor, Wang Ho journeys to the mountain of Tsunyi to seek the tutelage of the mysterious ninja master Gintong Ermitanyo ("Golden Hermit")
The Hermit trains Wang Ho in the ways of the ninja, and bestows upon him a magical golden samurai sword, which gives him the power to transform into a mystical Golden Ninja.
Skilled in the martial arts, Wang Ho's physical prowess are magically enhanced when he transforms into the Golden Ninja. His golden samurai appears to be sentient; springing to life on its own at times, responding to its master's commands, capable of levitating, and glowing whenever danger is afoot. In addition to the samurai, Wang Ho also carries a second shorter sword.
