The comic continues within the future where an aged Ninjak and his immortal ally The Eternal Warrior are seeking for the source of their troubles.

They enter a portal and end up in Las Vegas, Nevada on top of the Pyramid Casino. They decide to rent a room and go undercover to see where they can find the owner of Unreal Estate Incorporated. If they find the owner, then they may get one step closer to the culprit behind it all. Eventually, they get the name of the client who goes by the alias Silk. After gathering the information required, they head to the site where Silk resides. Upon arrival, they come across one of their enemies , Fakir, and battle. But the battle is yet to begin as Silk finally reveals himself implying his plans for opening a gateway to the Deadside realm and seeking immortality.

Matt Kindt (writer) and Khari Evans (artist) do a good job at keeping up a good pace. The story is paced really well. It flows without ever getting dull or stale. It keeps the reader interested in what the protagonists face going forward. Khari Evans does a splendid job with the art. The bar fight on page 10 and 11 are fun for the eyes to wander and the colors by Ulises Arredla adds on to the kind of powerful and kinetic energy in the later half of the issue when the protagonists enter Silk’s lair. But the rest of the issue is colored and illustrated with detail and utmost quality. There isn’t a page that is wasted with filler art. This is a solid and fun read, I definitely recommend picking this issue up for this week.
