    Overall, this issue wasn't quite as good as issues 1-2, which is a difficult comparison as those issues marked some of the funnest product Valiant's put out to date. This doesn't feel decompressed, and four issues feels about right for this story. It's a simple story (aside from the Deadside trip), but it does have the fun-factor I've been looking for in Valiant books. I hope Valiant sees it as a success so we get more action-filled books like this in the future. Read Full Review

    Start out with Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe #1 and you will not be disappointed by issue #3. Ninjak is a mix of James Bond and Deadpool. I really like the art as well. It has a Dan Jurgens quality of storytelling and detail, that is great for such a fast-paced book. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, although this series isn't going to be winning any major awards, it's not bad as a primer for the web-series. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 17, 2018

    Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe #3 unfortunately backslides the miniseries quite a bit. It complicates the story with a very shallow ruse on the part of the heroes, the dialogue is quite bad, and there are other simple logic and flow issues that hurt the book. If youre following this book, you may as well pick this issue up. Its not terrible; the fight with Archer and Armstrong is entertaining, and the art is great. But, if youre just wanting to check out some Valiant fair, this is not the way to go. Read Full Review

    The emotive cartooning of Joe Bennett is rarely a poor choice for any project, but Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe " based on a webseries by the Bat in the Sun folks whose calling card is making superheroes look and feel as real as possible in their shorts " feels like a miscalculation.
