Official PR follows:
Valiant is proud to announce NINJA-K #6, the FIRST ISSUE of “THE COALITION” – A SENSES-SHATTERING NEW ARC and ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT from renowned writer Christos Gage (Netflix’s Daredevil) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA)! On April 11th, Colin King – aka the international super-spy codenamed Ninjak – must recruit a deadly new black-ops strike force featuring Livewire, Punk Mambo, Dr. Mirage, and the robotic alien powerhouse called GIN-GR to take on the most ruthless team of Valiant villains ever assembled… Prepare to face “THE COALITION”!
A once-loyal agent has defected from the ranks of MI-6’s most elite espionage unit…and Ninjak has been dispatched across the globe to prevent his secrets from plunging the world into chaos. But, in the shadows of Mexico City, Colin King is about to discover something far more deadly… The Ninja Programme’s own former sensei, the Jonin, has assembled a conspiratorial circle of enigmatic enemies – the Dying One, Kostiy the Deathless, Linton March, and The United’s Ultimo – for a purpose so sinister that even Ninjak can’t risk engaging them alone. Enter: Livewire, Punk Mambo, Dr. Mirage, and GIN-GR – Ninjak’s brand-new black ops team with a very specific set of skills…and a license to kill the unkillable!
On April 11th, Christos Gage and artist Juan José Ryp take the driver’s seat for a heart-stopping race to save the world as “THE COALITION” prepares for the ultimate clash of superteams in NINJA-K #6 – featuring covers by Tonci Zonjic (Who Is Jake Ellis?), Alan Quah (Orphan Black), Clayton Crain (Carnage), and Neal Adams(Green Lantern/Green Arrow)!
But first: “THE NINJA FILES” barrel onward on January 24th as Colin King declassifies more of Great Britain’s most closely guarded secrets in NINJA-K #3!
At last, Ninjak is about to find himself face-to-face with the surgically precise killer that has been eliminating the operatives of MI-6’s most elite intelligence service – the deep-black training unit known as the “Ninja Programme” – one by one. But this shocking truth will also bring a devastating realization about Colin King’s own past screaming into the modern day… With a gun at his back and a sword at his side, Britain’s most elite super-spy is about to have his faith in queen and country tested like never before…
On January 24th, the mystery of “THE NINJA FILES” deepens as Christos Gage and superstar artist Tomás Giorello – plus special guest Ariel Olivetti – lead Colin King into a shadow-laden game of cat and mouse, only in NINJA-K #3 – featuring covers by Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), rising star Lucas Troya, Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), and Tomás Giorello (X-O MANOWAR)!
