First Look: NINJAK #6 – Matt Kindt and Raúl Allén Begin “THE SHADOW WARS” in August!

NINJAK_006_COVER_A_SUAYANBeginning in August, MI-6′s most dangerous master spy goes head-to-head against a gauntlet of deadly new enemies for…”THE SHADOW WARS”!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of NINJAK #6 – the FIRST ISSUE of “THE SHADOW WARS,” an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and visionary rising star Raúl Allén (WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR)! Start reading here on August 26th as Ninjak dices his way through the secret leadership of the Shadow Seven one member at time…and confronts four all-new enemies obsessed with bringing down MI-6 by any means necessary!

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?

Then, Ninjak’s essential second feature, THE LOST FILES, continues in each 40-page issue of “THE SHADOW WARS!” 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!

On August 26th, all-star creators Matt Kindt, Raúl Allén, and Butch Guice bring the full might of the Shadow Seven crashing down on MI-6’s most elite intelligence operative when “THE SHADOW WARS” begin in NINJAK #6! Featuring covers by Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (DIVINITY), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), and Clayton Henry (IVAR, TIMEWALKER), Ninjak’s latest mission ratchets up the stakes with an all-new jumping-on point for the series that Newsarama calls “a rollicking rollercoaster…of martial-arts infused espionage.”

Valiant’s BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) Reaps Instant Sell-Out, Second Printing Coming in August!

BOD_001_COVER_SECOND-PRINTINGSo let it be written… So let it be done… BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) is one of 2015’s most sought-after comic book debuts!

Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce that BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – the 40-page opening chapter of the summer’s cataclysmic summer event and the publisher’s highest selling new series debut to date – has sold out at the distributor level just days after its initial release and will return with the BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING on August 19th, alongside BOOK OF DEATH #2 (of 4)!

Jump into the award-winning world of the Valiant Universe here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR, Green Lantern) and all-star artists Robert Gill (ETERNAL WARRIOR, Batgirl) and Doug Braithwaite (UNITY, Justice) begin a thousand-year journey into the future…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today!

“Retailers across the country are reporting that BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) is Valiant’s strongest selling title to date and, even with a print run of 70,000, many stores have already sold out,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “Robert Vendtti, Robert Gill and Doug Braithwaite have masterfully orchestrated a comic book epic that is not only packed with action, drama and a cast of Valiant’s heaviest hitters, but that is also vitally important to the future of our biggest characters. BOOK OF DEATH truly is a roadmap to the next decade of the Valiant Universe and it’s only appropriate that it has already incited this unprecedented level of response from fans and retailers.”

The Valiant heroes. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died.

Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world.

Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over…or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him?

Featuring the last stands of Valiant icons, the first appearances of all-new heroes, and tantalizing clues of future events, BOOK OF DEATH is the gateway to the next decade of the Valiant Universe and beyond!

“A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once.”

The Valiant heroes. X-O Manowar. Bloodshot. Ninjak. The Harbinger Renegades. Unity. This is how they lived. This is how they died.

Now we know. The Book of the Geomancer has recorded it all. But only a young girl – the last in a line of the enigmatic mystics who protect the Earth known as Geomancers – has seen this future come to pass, from the coming cataclysm to the dawn of the 41st century. Alone with her sworn protector, the Eternal Warrior – a soldier battle-forged across five thousand years of combat – the duo must defy their allies to stop the Dark Age that now threatens to eclipse our world.

Together, they are the number one target of every hero and villain on Earth. Either the Eternal Warrior hands her over…or they take him down. But can even he single-handedly protect one child when the entire Valiant Universe wages war against him?

The blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 starts here as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR) joins superstar-in-the-making Robert Gill (ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER) and visionary artist Doug Braithwaite (ARMOR HUNTERS) to begin a thousand-year journey into the future of the Valiant Universe…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today.

Ales Kot (Secret Avengers) and Adam Gorham (Zero) continue the sleeper hit of 2015 with a whirlwind race against time to save the Valiant Universe!

Neville Alcott and Beta-Max become partners in dealing with crime. The problem is: Neville Alcott doesn’t like cyborgs. The bigger problem is: Neville Alcott swallowed the virus they were chasing after — and Beta-Max is his only shot at convincing the virus to surrender peacefully.

When we discover the true purpose of the virus, everything changes.
