Darque destinies!

Once sworn enemies, Ninjak and the Shadow Seven have forged an uneasy alliance to accomplish their singular goal: kill Master Darque!

Ninjak's about to confront a terrifying truth...and the answers just might destroy him!

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Mar 30, 2017

    The book was perfectly balanced with action, drama and horror. I couldn't ask for a better book if I tried. I can't wait till next month for the second half of the story. This is a great book that you should be reading! Read Full Review

    The conclusion to the Seven Blades story arc will be bittersweet. The story arc has been incredibly entertaining and well executed, so the final issue should be outstanding.Regardless of how things end, it can be certain that this chapter in the Ninjak saga should go downin the win column.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 29, 2017

    Well, at this point I want a book that takes place back in the early 1800's and follows Sandria and her Brother with Segovia doing the artwork. There was a lot to like here and a lot of untapped potential considering the long term influences of Darque. The backstory material is definitely important and it plays out well here, though part of me wishes we had it earlier in the arc. The present day side felt weaker in comparison but I enjoyed the action as Segovia's artwork really makes it exciting and engaging with a lot of detail and a great sense of power about it. There's a lot to like here even if some aspects of it may be a mixed bag for others. It clicked well for me. Read Full Review

    Ninjak #25 was revealing on top of being the escalation we have been awaiting Everything comes down to what happens when we reach Master Darque because that is when all will make sense. Who can be trusted, who is the real enemy, and what is right and wrong here. Some people you can tell have good intentions, though others you are just waiting for the pieces to fall into place in order to figure out. This wave of mystery at the end of the day is what keeps you coming back for more in the world of Ninjak. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Apr 3, 2017

    Valiant has had a pretty good track record since its relaunch with very few stories, let alone single issues, that are considered objectively "bad" by fans and critics alike (*cough* Dead Drop *cough*).Unfortunately, Ninjak #25 joins that rare company. Decompressed storytelling for the sake of the inevitable collected edition can prove folly, and this is Exhibit A. Read Full Review
