25 Years of Valiant @ C2E2 2015: Matt Kindt Joins Raul Allen, Juan Jose Ryp, Stephen Segovia, and Clay Mann for NINJAK: THE SHADOW WARS – Beginning in August!

NINJAK_006_COVER-B_DJURDJEVICThis summer, Matt Kindt is pitting MI-6′s most elite intelligence operative against four brand new foes…and some of the greatest artists in comics today are about to join the battle!

As revealed this weekend at C2E2 2015, Valiant is proud to announce THE SHADOW WARS – an all-new story arc beginning in NINJAK #6 from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and an all-star gauntlet of top artistic talents – Raul Allen (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Hawkeye), Juan Jose Ryp (Black Summer), Stephen Segovia (UNITY, Convergence), and Clay Mann (NINJAK, X-Men)! Join one of the year’s most acclaimed new series here as Ninjak begins his deadliest test yet – a one-on-one showdown with four all-new enemies…each more ruthless that the last…illustrated by a different top talent each month!

Ninjak went to Tokyo to destroy the shadowy Weaponeer arms cartel from the inside out, beginning with its secret council of shinobi masters…the Shadow Seven. Now, the world’s top super-spy is cutting his way through the four death-defying members – The Barbe, Fitzy, Fakir, and Sanguine – that stand between him and the one secret that still eludes him… Who really wields the power behind the world’s most powerful terrorist network? Who is the secret seventh member of the Shadow Seven? And what do they want with Colin King?

“I tried to come up with an interesting cast of characters – villains for the most part – but also characters that share similar training to that Ninjak received… We’ve got a crazy billionaire recluse in a foil suit (and a lot of secrets), a master thief that looks like Errol Flynn, and a blood-sucking punk rocker in a tutu. We’re definitely having fun with this,” writer Matt Kindt told ComicBook.com.

Ninjak’s international manhunt for the super-powered puppet masters behind the world’s most dangerous – and most secretive – crime syndicate ratchets up the stakes when Matt Kindt and Raul Allen launch the first chapter of THE SHADOW WARS in NINJAK #6 – coming to comic shops everywhere this August!

Plus: Ninjak’s essential second feature, THE LOST FILES, continues in each 40-page issue of THE SHADOW WARS! Also beginning in NINJAK #6, Matt Kindt and Eisner-nominated artist Butch Guice (Captain America) reunite to reveal how Colin King and Neville Alcott first met – and the deadly secret Neville has kept from his most valuable field agent! The second act of THE LOST FILES starts here!

Featuring covers by Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (DIVINITY), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), and Clayton Henry (IVAR, TIMEWALKER), the next explosive chapter of Ninjak’s red-hot monthly series starts here this August, only in NINJAK #6!
