    Did I mention I'm glad I picked up this book? Because I am, I really am.This is a beyond glowing review. Seriously you should start reading Ninjak here. Matt Kindt gives you a great jumping on point for this series with a rocking art team to boot. Every inch of this book hits the mark and hits it well. A great looking comic with a killer story in the making. Don't miss out on this one, it's worth your time. Read Full Review

    Honestly, I had no knowledge this title was out there, and I frequently struggle to find books that grasp me enough to continue reading, but Ive just added Ninjak to my must read list for 2017. Keep up the good work. Read Full Review

    Kindt and Laming create another amazing issue here. Sure, it was a little slow, but it served as a set up for what is to come. Not familiar with the Shadow Seven? No problem, this story fills you in on what you need to know about each one. Not familiar with Ninjak? You also get some background on the deadliest man in the Valiant Universe right here. I read the whole Shadow Seven storyline, I am familiar with them all, and yet, this was still a very enjoyable romp of a book. The Seven Blades of Master Darque is bound to get explosive; this is just the calm before the storm. Read Full Review

    Ninjak promises to deliver a thrilling tale in the next few issues. This first installment in “The Seven Swords of Mister Darque” story will have a lot of pieces to move. Ninjak, ostensibly, will have become a big team book, and from what this prelude has demonstrated, it will be well-balanced and a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    As a jumping on point this far into the series, you can't go wrong starting here if you're willing to dive into a story that's the culmination of the series so far (and, amazingly enough, you really can). I can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 10, 2017

    Cleverly written, Kindt shows he's at the top of his game when it comes to tense visual storytelling. Ninjak #23's narrative has a cinematic feel that's hard to put down. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jan 16, 2017

    The script is crisp and the art is excellent - and Ninjak does play a vital role before we hit the end of the issue - but it'd still be nice to have him a bit more involved. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 12, 2017

    There's a good feeling about‘The Seven Blades of Master Darque' by the end of Ninjak #23. This one final mission is going to be a big one no matter how it ends. When Master Darque is involved, and with this being so personal you can expect nothing but the best that these characters can offer. Read Full Review

    In the end, we know nothing is perfect, but you can say that Ninjak #23 is pretty is about as good as it gets on aquality level in both art and story. The script was simpler this time, which was the right choice, and despite the minor issues on the art, I'm sure you'llhave a blast reading this one. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 11, 2017

    Ninjak is a book that's so full of potential that it's frustrating to see it unfold as it does because all I can envision is something larger and grander with more weight to it. That's not to say I'm not enjoying what it's doing here because I am, but I want it to be so much more. This installment is basically an easy introduction to the characters that are going to populate this arc with their motivations and it works as a showcase for just how powerful Roku is with what she can do, which is to say she's overpowered. Colin himself has a small part but it's something that could lead to an interesting twist for him and I'm curious to see just how far, and how truthful, it will go. Read Full Review

    Ninjak #23 is a thrill ride through a gauntlet of challenges both physical and psychological. Surprises and action abound along with stronger character definition. The Seven Blades of Master Darque is promising to be one of the biggest and baddest Ninjak arcs yet. Read Full Review
