Roku and the remnants of Weaponeer have destroyed Colin King's home, his identity and his very life. But they made one mistake - they didn't kill Ninjak when they had the chance!
Ninjak's darkest hour is nigh as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.) and red-hot artist Diego Bernard (X-O MANOWAR) continue the most pivotal turning point yet in the deadly life of MI-6's most elite intelligence operative, only in "THE SIEGE OF KING'S CASTLE"!

    Overall, this is one of the stronger issues ofNinjak I've read in some time, and as the opening chapter to a new story arc, it's a very accessible one to new readers. Whether the arc continues to build on the promise shown here only time will tell, but I'll be along for the ride. Read Full Review

    The Siege of Kings Castleis well written, and masterfully rendered. Ninjak #15 is impossible to not enjoy and a perfect starting point for new readers. Read Full Review

    So, to reiterate, for a comic about a costumed hero in which you never see him actually in costume, this comic is very well done, and I feel as though I appreciate the man behind the mask better than if I'd jumped into an issue that was entirely "Ninjak". While I don't recommend jumping onto a new title mid-arc, this is a good issue so I'm assuming the issue before it is good as well. I fell as though this may be a good a jumping off point as any when it comes to Ninjak, so take the plunge! Read Full Review

    Ninjak has a solid enough episode here (and another uninteresting and forgettable backup story) as we get to see Colin working his leads and using his honed skills to go after his target. Kindt captures Colin well in this phase and I really like what we get out of Roku here as told through Volk's view of events. Roku has a lot of potential but I'll admit I'm afraid of what will happen since Kindt has run a pretty tight and compressed series so far that really could have been bigger and expanded in a stronger way. Though I doubt that they'd end her in the next installment there's still that potential based on what's gone before. This chapter is pretty good overall and one that I think will definitely read better as a full arc. And likely the backup stories as well which continue to be the weakest part of the book for me.

    Ninjak #15 ‘THE SIEGE OF KING'S CASTLE' – part 2 it did feel like there could have been more we took from this issue aside from it now being established that Roku is behind it all. We know that taking on Roku and Weaponeer will be no simple task this time, though that is about it for right now. Hopefully the next part cranks that dial to show what happens when you back Ninjak against a wall. Read Full Review

    It's always fun when a character with limited resources gets them taken away, but in the case of Ninjak #15 the end product doesn't entirely live up to the premise. Read Full Review
