A BLOCKBUSTER NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! In Margaret Thatcher’s Britain, meet the future of espionage: the hard-hitting, brutalizing super-spy codenamed NINJA-H!
From the encrypted files of The Ninja Programme, another secret chapter revealed! The Cold War is in full swing and the United Kingdom’s top-secret intelligence unit has come to a crossroads. As their once-elite collection of secret agents finds itself outmatched by the escalation of the United States’ H.A.R.D. Corps division, the spymasters of MI6 are about to develop a new kind of soldier for their never-ending war of global gamesmanship and international intrigue. Part man, part machine, and bound together with the most extreme technological enhancements that the 1980s have to offer, NINJA-H is faster, stronger, and deadlier than any who have come before…
Now, for the first time, the metal-crunching saga of MI6’s one-man, super-powered strike force – and his tragic fall from grace – can finally be told as renowned writer Christos Gage (Netflix’s Daredevil) teams with comics legend Larry Stroman (X-Factor) to declassify the next standalone shadow-laden chapter in the history of Ninjak’s fellow Ninja Programme agents!
Writer: Christos Gage

First seeing this book it was nice to see Larry Stroman’s name in the art credits. I hadn’t really seen him on a book since the 90s Comic Boom. That said seeing his work, I felt it was lacking some of the energy it used to have?
Here is a page of his work back in X-Force.
And here is a page from this issue of Ninja-K.
Maybe it was him doing his own coloring? Or maybe he’s still has changed and I was expecting the older style?
The story is what it says, it’s a good jumping on point. This is a self-contained story that has great twists about man vs machine and the monsters inside of men. I don’t want to say too much so I don’t give away the twists. It was a fun read if a bit dark.
Minor note is that I always thought the name was just Ninjak, but apparently, they’ve changed it around to where it’s been a series of British Ninjas from Ninja-A to the current Ninja-K. Kind of reminds me the changes Marvel did with the Wolverine back story of Weapon X where then said X wasn’t a letter but the roman numeral for 10 (I believe Deadpool was Weapon 11?).
Just thought it was an interesting change up on a goofy 90s styled name.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 because it does exactly what it set out to do, be a good jumping on point for people who haven’t read this comic before (like myself).
