Review: Ninja-K #14

NINJA-K_COVER_BFINAL ISSUE! England’s top spy has gone rogue!

After going back on his word to find and apprehend his former lover, the super-powered fugitive called Livewire, Ninjak is now on the run from MI6 himself! So, what on earth could force him to travel to the very heart of London?

When your time is coming to an end, what do you do? If you asked Christos Gage what he planned to do with the final issue of Ninja-K I’d like to think he’d smile. I don’t know him, so consequently I didn’t ask him, but if I wa writing a series like this and wanted to wrap it up in style, I’d consider myself lucky if I did it half as well as Gage did with Ninja-K 14 in what is essentially a standalone story that wraps up all of the loose ends that I can think of (or rather all that I care about) in a remarkably neat package.

The plot itself is relatively simple, but the insights we get into Ninjak as he narrates the simple, action packed evening adventure are fascinatingly revelatory when it comes to  Gage’s run on the character. Storywise, you really couldn’t ask for a better cap to a fantastic run. Artistically? It could have been better.

Roberto De  La Torre has a very unique style that I’ve struggled with during his time on this series. Ninja-K #14 is a comic of two halves; there are moments of pure brilliance that are off set by sequences where you really have no bloody clue what’s going on. However. There’s a very good chance that in print (or on a non-watermarked digital copy) that the art will be less muddled – and because I won’t be able to pick up my print copy for almost a week after publication date, I’m willing to give the art the benefit of the doubt based upon the previous issue holding up better in person than on the review copy I read at first.

Ultimately, despite some questions on the art, this is a book that is well worth reading, and fans who have read thus far are going to be very happy with the final product. Whether it’s worth picking this up just for the standalone story, well personally I think it is. This comic give you enough context (yay recap page!) that you are more than capable of enjoying the story within without any fear of feeling lost or confused as the events unfold across the page. We’ve already said “so long” to another Valiant series this month as Quantum And Woody gave us perhaps the best farewell issue I’ve ever read, but Christos Gage and Ninja-K #14 sure gave it a run for its money.

“THE COALITION” spells doom!

A once-loyal agent has defected from the ranks of MI6’s most elite espionage unit… and Ninjak has been dispatched across the globe to prevent his secrets from plunging the world into chaos. But, in the shadows of Mexico City, Colin King is about to discover something far more deadly… The Ninja Programme’s own former sensei, the Jonin, has assembled a conspiratorial circle of enigmatic enemies – the Dying One, Kostiy the Deathless, Linton March, and The United’s Ultimo – for a purpose so sinister that even Ninjak can’t risk engaging them alone. Enter: Livewire, Punk Mambo, Dr. Mirage, and GIN-GR – Ninjak’s brand-new black ops team with a very specific set of skills…and a license to kill the unkillable!
