Review:  ★★★★

In the latest series, Christos Gage has been exploring the Ninja program that trained Ninjak, more than any previous writer has.  Since we really haven’t had a full overview of the program, its given him plenty of leeway to create new mythos, but more importantly change the mythos we thought we knew.  Ninjak himself is coming to find out that what he knew about the program might not even scratch the surface as he comes face to face with his target, Ninja-C.  After trading a few blows, Ninjak decides to listen to his enemy and finds out his real enemy might be MI-6.  If what Ninja-C is telling him is true, some of it could make sense while other parts feel like a stretch.  We do love the idea in theory, it’s just up to Gage to actually make it completely believable when looked through as its relates to Ninjak and what we know about his life from Matt Kindt’s previous run.  This story is only starting to scratch the surface, but its continuing to be off to the right start.
