Ninjak #23 Sharpens “The Seven Blades of Maser Darque”

Valiant has released a look inside Ninjak #23 – the FIRST ISSUE of “The Seven Blades of Master Darque” from writer Matt Kindt and blockbuster artist Marc Laming! Join the adrenaline-fueled adventures of MI-6’s master super-spy here as Colin King – codename: Ninjak – begins an All-New Arc and All-New Jumping-On Point with a winner-take-all gambit against the deceitful puppet master behind the world’s most dangerous crime cartel! It’s all led to this… And, soon, Ninjak will meet Master Darque and the Shadow Seven head on in a battle royale that will decide the fate of civilization itself!

Master Darque – the sadistic lord of death and resurrection – wrests to be free once again, but first he must fight for his life. Darque is a target, his powers are weak, and his enemies know it. Now, Darque’s own former pupil and Ninjak’s ruthless arch-nemesis – the lethal assassin known as Roku – has gathered the Shadow Seven together again for the sole purpose of putting Darque down for good. And the only thing holding their uneasy alliance together is a mysterious benefactor from the shadows… Someone who also goes by the name Darque…
