Valiant Entertainment has released a lettered preview of Ninja-K #1 from writer Christos Gage and artist Tomas Giorello.
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.
“[Colin King] is back in London doing his freelance thing, working for MI-6 as well as other clients. But he’s isolated,” said writer Christos Gage. “He’ll be confronted by the ghosts of the past…both the Ninja Programme’s and his own. And many of those ghosts are very, very angry. Things will be shaken up. Friends might become foes, and vice versa. We’re creating this rich history, this world, and then stirring it up, turning it upside down, and setting it all loose.”
Valiant’s next essential ongoing series starts here with stunningly precise, 40-page jumping-on point diving swords-first into the mystery at the heart of MI-6’s dark legacy! On November 15th, join comics all-stars Christos Gage and Tomas Giorello as they lead Ninjak on a manhunt through a cold, calculating world of espionage and international intrigue, only in NINJA-K #1 – featuring covers by Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), rising star Lucas Troya, Tonci Zonjic (Who is Jake Ellis?), Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), and David Mack (Kabuki)!
Ninja-K #1 arrives on November 15, 2017.
