Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe #2

   This is an odd event book, because even though it pits Ninjak against almost all the heroes in the Valiant Universe, it has no effect on Valiant's continuity.

   That's because the story is actually set outside the Valiant Universe.

   It's based on an upcoming live action web series, and it definitely has a real world feeling to it.

   Ninjak has been blackmailed into stealing an incredibly valuable (and powerful) artifact - and the lives of his loved ones depend on him delivering that object.

   But his employers aren't ready to give it away - so they assemble some powerful heroes to track down Ninjak.

   Can a ninja defend himself against the biggest powerhouses in Valiant's stables?

   It's a good question - and you get the answer here (sort of).

   With strong art by Joe Bennett and Belardino Brabo, and a solid script by Eliot Rahal (based on a screenplay by a small army of writers), this is a fun oddity - an event that stands alone.

Grade: B+
