But not even the Shadow Seven - the underworld's deadliest cabal of murderers and mercenaries - will be enough to assure victory. To truly defeat an undead lord of death and resurrection, she'll need the complete and unquestioning allegiance of Ninjak...who isn't interested. But when Darque's
long-missing sister Sandria returns with a gambit that could reveal his greatest weakness, an unholy alliance of light and darkness will be forged that coul more

    Do yourself a favor and give the "The Seven Blades of the Master Darque" a try. It's only two issues, but you're bound to be all-in with this very cool story. Matt Kindt is putting on a show with clever storytelling ideas you can't miss! Read Full Review

    This issue of Ninjak is action packed and beautiful. There's enough variety in the comic as well to make it a real page turner and totally captivating. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Feb 8, 2017

    Dodgy use of a British slang term aside, this is an incredible comic from everybody involved, and easily my favourite story we've had in the series to this point (when weighed against the first two issues of each arc so far). I'm beyond impressed with what Valiant have going on here, and this is one of the best issue in the series so far. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Feb 9, 2017

    Kindt has taken a frankly one dimensional typical 90's character in Ninjak and has crafted an Akira Kurosawa style story, that has really exceeded all expectations and has left this reader happy and excited for the next issue. By far my favourite book of this week. Read Full Review

    GAMbIT Magazine - Alan D.D. Feb 8, 2017

    In the end, despite some very, very minor problems Ninjak #24is a great issue that will leave you wanting for more! The mix between new elements and traditional style in this comic is what makes it attractive and so captivating. Ninjak #24 may not be my kind of read when I'm out picking up comics, but" man, I really enjoyed this! Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Oral Frier Feb 18, 2017

    The new story arc for Ninjakhas yet to disappoint. Seven Samuraiis a classic, and this Ninjak is able to pay homage to that movie right. These seven people, although incredibly deadly, face a nearly impossible task to accomplish. Some will survive, and some may fall. It is a story told time and time again; however, the story is being told fresh and fun way. The next few issues should be a blast and totally worth a read. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 8, 2017

    The mission has been set, the stakes, as well as the consequences to be faced if Ninjak and the Shadow Seven do not pull off the impossible against Master Darque. Ninjak #24 will be memorable for how this story arc aims to satisfy two fandoms between Ninjak and Shadowman. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 8, 2017

    Ninjak's doing some interesting work here even if I'm not fully on board with it just yet. I liked the setup in the previous issue while also being frustrated with it and I like what we get here with its own frustrations, mostly just in how fast a lot of this is moving and the lack of real weight given to aspects of it. I'm definitely intrigued by Sandria and what she represents but not enough to try and figure out the rest of the sprawling Valiant universe to figure it out. The storyline is definitely coming together well and I like the potential of it all with the mission that's now revealed and Colin's place in it, which has two potential positives at the end of it for him to hope for with both Roku and Darque.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 9, 2017

    There's a certain amount of convenience to Kindt's brisk pacing -- Ninjak goes from unwilling combatant to team player in mere panels -- but it's so easy to get caught up in the writer's intricate fantasy that it's forgivable. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Mike Mazzacane Feb 13, 2017

    "Ninjak" is clearly headed towards something big as it builds and builds towards taking on one of Valiant's most powerful villains. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Feb 13, 2017

    Much of what is revealed here supports theories of Ninjak's connection to the Shadow Seven, but Kindt also introduces new elements which bring the story dangerously close to the cliche work of the Big Two. With the reemergence of Sandra Darque " sister of Master Darque " comes a tired and corny speech of how Ninjak is the key because he is pure of heart and blah, blah, blah. It is a poorly executed moment that casts an immense shadow over an otherwise satisfying issue. Read Full Review
