    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Apr 19, 2017

    When I read an issue of Ninjak that is this good I end up going back and reading what I missed. Even knowing where it ends up, it's always worth the journey. I may not always review the series, but I would be lying that it doesn't still register as one of my favorites, even when I fall behind. If you too have fallen behind on Ninjak, don't let the number on the cover scare you, give it another shot right here with this issue. You won't regret it and its way better than the stuff the corporate heroes are doing. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Dec 31, 1969

    This is definitely a gripping finale that will bring readers along on a roller coaster ride with some of the best sequential art that I have ever laid eyes on. Buy this book. Buy the series. It's worth it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Apr 21, 2017

    I feel like I'm repeating myself every month with this book. It is brilliantly written. It has great art. This is a book that you should be reading, and it's shameful that so many great books like this one escape the mainstream attention they deserve just because it doesn't have Batman, Deadpool or Wolverine in it. Do yourself a favour pick up the trades, buy the single issues, anything just read this book. I am not bitter that it's selling in the low numbers, even if it sounds like it. I am frustrated for the people that missing out on this great book. I feel bad for you if you are missing this book. A ringing endorsement from this reviewer Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 19, 2017

    Like any story before in this series, Ninjak #26 closed out another must read adventure. If you're someone who read The Valiant, then the end wasn't all too surprising, but the emotion and execution are the main attraction for this agent who knows how to rise above the challenge.

    Outright Geekery - Christopher Amundson Apr 17, 2017

    This book, this story is a must read. If you are just getting into Ninjak, make sure you grab the Trade Paper Backs and enjoy the whole story from the beginning. As for this book, pick it up, if just for the interior art! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Apr 19, 2017

    As with almost any Valiant comic, this concluding part toThe Seven Blades Of Master Darqueis surprisingly easy for new readers to pick up (although it started in #23 if you want to go back a few issues), given to the way the comic is structured as Ninjak explains the mission to his MI6 handler Neville, along with some slight alterations to the truth, although if youwant to start reading the series, the final issue may not be the best place to start.

    SciFiPulse - Oral Frier Apr 23, 2017

    Ninjakis a series continues to surprise me as a reader. A secret ninja-spy is an entertaining concept, but it can come across as just a gimmick if not done well. Throughout this run, the creative team for the book has never fallen into that trap. Furthermore, the consistently delivered a story that strove to be more than just smoke bombs and sword fights.They accomplished it. Bravo. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 19, 2017

    Ninjak essentially does what it did with the other arcs in its run in doing some interesting and fun things with great artwork and concepts but fails to really make them feel cemented and weighty. The material has so much going for it but is moving at such a quick pace that it ends up lacking the presence that it should, which when combined with what happens to Roku here at the end just makes it feel even lighter than it should.

    'The Seven Blades of Master Darque' is true to Kindt's run overall and a satisfying conclusion for a character who is perpetually dissatisfied. Read Full Review
