ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! A SPECIAL FOUR-ISSUE EVENT! "OPERATION: DEADSIDE" STARTS HERE! In December of 2015, a covert military intelligence unit sent a team of 20 agents and one special operative into a parallel dimension. Only one came back.
The purpose of their mission was classified. Now, out of options, MI-6 has recruited their most elite operative - codename: NINJAK - to follow the doomed mission's sole witness back into the dimension called Deadside...and bring her missing teammates home.
What will they find there? And who will be waiting for them? Jump on board here as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) reunite for a terrifying journey into an unknown plane of existence...and bring NINJAK head-to-head with SHADOWMAN in the all-new, four-part epic "OPERATION: DEADSIDE"!
Plus: an all-new chapter of "THE LOST FILES" begins, featuring explosive artwork by Juan José Ryp (Clone)!

    I think this story would be a great jumping on point for new readers, and it'll also be a great read for anyone who is already a fan of Ninjak, Punk Mambo, and Shadowman. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Dec 9, 2015

    This was a strong first issue of the new storyline. We got some new lore to add to the Valiant Universe while good character development for both Ninjak and Punk Mambo. The art was spectacular, with strong detail and conveying emotion well while showing us some out of this world backgrounds. The writing was very strong on both stories and make you want more.

    Ninjak #10 is the perfect jumping on point for new fans, with the new plot being intriguing to say the least. Giving us the start of a unique and mysterious tale, the creative team certainly give us plenty of reasons to return next month, with this comic coming highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Ninjak #10 is an impressive start to the Operation: Deadside story arc and the intriguing conclusion makes me look forward to what will happen next. Neville narrating the majority of the issue doesn't take away from feeling engrossed in the story although I do wish it touched on the first team's battle with Ember just a little bit more. However I really like the Deadside so far and the combination of Ninjak and Punk Mambo. Good thing this is only the first issue because I really want more. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 9, 2015

    Ninjak #10 is the start of what looks to be another memorable story arc. Pick it up for another adventure through the Deadside, for Punk Mambo, or just to find out what may have happened to the Shadowman. This one has potential and not one you can afford to miss. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 10, 2015

    This arc is one that has me wary because it feels like we're taking Colin too far out of his element, the Moonraker arc in a sense, but I'm trusting Kindt to deliver as he largely did so with what came before. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Dec 8, 2015

    Operation: Deadside is underway and while the promoted hype about this storyline revolves around of a certain shadowed someone, Ninjak #10 actually is a refreshing jumping-on point that stands on its own merits of superhero spy fantasy euphoria. Bizarre, confident, and captivating, the wild espionage heroics supplant themselves into Kindt and Braithwaite's new surreal landscape with ease. Punk Mambo gets to steal the show and the storys structure allows for a smart starting point to the darker (and hopefully even more insane) shadows to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Dec 9, 2015

    I wanted to dislike this book for a couple of reasons. Certain Valiant books seem to be running out of steam and there is the fact this is about magic! After reading the book however, Ninjak is not on the verge of losing its way, with Kindt throwing curveballs and despite the magic elements and the required amount of explanations, I did enjoy the book.

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Dec 9, 2015

    Unfortunately, readers will have to wait at least another month for the long-awaited return of Shadowman, who is absent from this installment. However, as if another reason to pick up this issue was necessary, the inclusion of Punk Mambo more than makes up for it. Read Full Review

    Kindt, Braithwaite and Ryp begin their arc with a solid foundation as Valiant's spiritual side makes its return. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Dec 9, 2015

    Overall, this just wasn't the best Ninjak issue I've read. It wasn't bad, but it has a long way to go to catch up to the previous issues. I'll definitely keep reading it, but I'm really hoping for something better from the next issue. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Ray W Dec 12, 2015

    Ninjak #10 is a nice reintroduction to the DeadSide. The story is simple and brings us to a new side of DeadSide as well. Interaction and dialog between the characters are great. Artwork for both stories is good at best and colors lend well to both stories. I didnt find this setup issue to be strong but if a few things were changed it could have been great. Im curious how the story will end, so Ill stick around. Read Full Review
