Check out the press release below:
In the wake of blockbuster debuts including X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1, SECRET WEAPONS #1, and BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1, the Valiant Universe’s deadliest international operator returns to the shadow-draped world of Britain’s secret service…only to find himself in the crosshairs of a plot with tendrils stretching back decades to the formation of the Ninja Programme itself!
On November 15th, renowned writer Christos Gage (Netflix’s Daredevil) and Valiant’s latest superstar artist, Tomas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR), present a stunningly precise jumping-on point revealing the classified history of the black-budget spy network that trained Colin King and his predecessors…and leading Ninjak on a manhunt through a cold, calculating world of espionage and international intrigue in search of a killer targeting all ninja agents – past and present!
For nearly a century, MI-6, the most elite branch of Britain’s clandestine intelligence service, has honed a ruthlessly effective, top-secret division – THE NINJA PROGRAMME – into one of its nation’s most finely wielded weapons. Tasked as the first and last line of defense for queen and country, this small shadow army of agents and assassins has produced a succession of notable assets, including NINJA-A, the Queen’s silent weapon of World War I; NINJA-E, the globe-trotting secret agent that pulled the Cold War back from the brink of Armageddon; and, most recently, NINJA-K, aka Colin King, a brash but fearless instrument of lethality that has saved the world from madmen and terror at every turn. But now… an unknown enemy is hunting and killing members of THE NINJA PROGRAMME one by one – and NINJAK is next on the list.
“I had a blast combining real world history, pop culture, and imagination,” writer Christos Gage told IGN. “Each new design the great Tomas Giorello sends in is better than the last. For each character, I tried to give him a basic concept and some ideas, but also leave him plenty of room to use his imagination and just cut loose. And he's been delivering in spades.”
Ninja-K #1 will hit stores November 15.
