Every master spy… had to start somewhere. This March, the past and future of MI-6’s deadliest operative collide in the pages of an all-new ongoing series from VALIANT NEXT!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of NINJAK #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the long-awaited VALIANT NEXT ongoing series by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (THE VALIANT, Mind MGMT), and superstar artists Clay Mann (Gambit) and Butch Guice (Captain America)! On March 11th, the search for the Shadow Seven starts here as Ninjak begins an international manhunt for the secretive figureheads behind the Webnet terror network…and unearths their classified connection to his own never-before-revealed origin and training!

Then: meet inexperienced MI-6 recruit Colin King on his first mission in the field as he learns the basics of spycraft and counterintelligence, and develops a volatile relationship with his first handler. Now: Colin King is Ninjak, the world’s foremost intelligence operative, weapons expert, and master assassin. And he’s hunting the Shadow Seven – a secret cabal of shinobi masters with mysterious ties to his training and tragic past.

Beginning with NINJAK #1, each 40-page issue of Ninjak’s debut solo series begins with a full-length lead tale by Matt Kindt & Clay Mann, followed by a new chapter of Ninjak’s never-before-told origin by Kindt & Butch Guice monthly! Featuring shelf covers by Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT), Clay Mann (X-Men), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), and Marguerite Sauvage (Sensation Comics), start reading here on March 11th as VALIANT NEXT unleashes an all-new introduction to the fearless life and times of the world’s deadliest master spy, only in NINJAK #1!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
