The second part of a new arc for Ninjak, “The Seven Blades of Master Darque” arrives this week with issue #24. Written by Matt Kindt, and drawn by Stephen Segovia, Ryan Lee, and Ulises Arreola, this issue features Roku’s attempt to defeat Master Darque, an undead lord of death and resurrection, and hoping to secure Ninjak’s aid to do so. But in the end, will it take a Darque to kill a Darque?
Like the previous issue, the comic features several variant covers by Ryan Bodenheim, Ben Oliver, Felipe Massafera, Bilquis Evely, and Ben Templesmith:
Here’s the official description for this issue:
As Master Darque fights to return to the land of the living, his former disciple – the deadly assassin Roku – will build an army to put him down for good. But not even the Shadow Seven — the underworld’s deadliest cabal of murderers and mercenaries — will be enough to assure victory. To truly defeat an undead lord of death and resurrection, she’ll need the complete and unquestioning allegiance of Ninjak…who isn’t interested. But when Darque’s long-missing sister Sandria returns with a gambit that could reveal his greatest weakness, an unholy alliance of light and darkness will be forged that could upset the balance of good and evil once and for all time…
And here’s our preview of part 2 of Ninjak’s “The Seven Blades of Master Darque“, out on February 8th:
