    This story is great, if not confusing at times due to the multiple timelines at play. Ninjak's actions in both timelines affects the other, so we're constantly on our toes and thinking about how his actions could change things. The artwork is detailed when it comes to the characters – and they're what really matter – so we're fine with the near-neglect the background receives most of the time. Read Full Review

    Ninjak #21 brings us to the end of yet another story arc worth following for the places we go and the things we see along the way. Ninjak may live is his own corner of the Valiant Universe, but he still provides the right kind of adventures worth of an espionage story. Read Full Review

    Like I said this was never a bad issue, it just wasn't as great as I hoped. Read Full Review

    Ninjak as a whole continues to be a series that does a lot that I like but also frustrates me by not taking the time to really dig into things. This arc goes a bit lighter on actual content and ran for a few issues where it worked better for me simply because it was less about story and more about the buddy/buddy relationship with Gilad. Stories taking place in the future are ones that I kind of treat lightly because it's nothing that can be considered firm in its own way, even less so in comics, so it's just a fun romp that can be wiped away at any instant. Kindt does some good stuff in bringing it to a close here while still going weird and almost comical with how the nature of information in the universe is handled, but it's something that you can almost imagine is just how his mind processed it and showed it to him. Still, hurray for incredibly hacking skills. Here's hoping the next arc is a bit more grounded, however. Read Full Review

    If you haven't been following Ninjak, jumping in now may seem a bit late, but this issue has demonstrated that going back and reading the series is warranted. The ending of this story arc was bitter-sweet, and I think it gave us an ending that felt satisfactory. It is a defining moment for the character. And although….hyper meditation?!?,the issue was overall satisfying. Read Full Review

    While this is a fun read the issue does feel like a slapped together conclusion. Read Full Review
