Following in the footsteps of fellow best-selling series like X-O MANOWAR, SECRET WEAPONS, and BLOODSHOT SALVATION, Valiant’s ICONS initiative continues as Gage and Giorello dig deep into the classified origins of the black-budget spy network that trained Colin King aka Ninjak and send him ‘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!”
Valiant’s Press release today was excited to cover the second printing of Ninjak 1, their description of the title established the story-line well, “ 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.” A personal fan of Ninjak, I can promise you that Valiant’s is right! If you missed this books first printing, be prepared to snatch it up when it hits stores in early 2018, an addictive 48-page first issue that promises to please, scheduled for January 3rd!
