Valiant ICONS Goes Inside Ninja-K #1

Valiant has released a first look lettered look inside Ninja-K #1 – the 40-PAGE FIRST ISSUE of the new ongoing series from writer Christos Gage and superstar artist Tomas Giorello!

On November 15th, Valiant’s ICONS initiative unleashes a new assignment for Colin King, the lethal international operative codenamed NINJA-K! Now, for the first time, discover the secrecy-shrouded origins of the top-secret program that created Ninjak and his predecessors as Britain’s most dangerous super-spy unravels a conspiracy with deadly implications for each and every ninja agent…past and present!

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.

Featuring covers by Trevor Hairsine, Lucas Troya, Tonci Zonjic, Kenneth Rocafort, and David Mack!

Valiant Joins Local Comic Shop Day 2017 with Secret Weapons Deluxe Edition Oversized HC

Valiant Entertainment has announced that it will be supporting Local Comic Shop Day 2017 on November 18th, 2017 with a special, limited-edition release of the Secret Weapons Deluxe Edition Oversized HC – the first oversized hardcover collection of the year’s best-selling independent limited series from Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer and Harvey Award-nominated artists Raúl Allén and Patricia Martin – to participating retailers!

Collecting Secret Weapons #1-4 with a cover by multiple Eisner Award nominee David Mack and exclusive to Local Comic Shop Day 2017, this oversized hardcover collection of Valiant’s sold-out, critically acclaimed series will not be available for sale anywhere else, and arrives weeks before the Secret Weapons TPB arrives in stores on December 13th.

 

The Secret Weapons Deluxe Edition Oversized HC will feature a beautifully presented, deluxe repackaging of the critically lauded series, and feature more than 20 pages of bonus material including character designs, process art, and more that won’t be found anywhere else!

The government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself. Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure. A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive disappointments. But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rex-O seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…

Local Comic Shop Day shines a bright spotlight on locally owned independent comic book specialty stores and their role in shaping the pop culture market. This year, Local Comic Shop Day will be Saturday, November 18th, the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

On Local Comic Shop Day, participating retailers will have exclusive, and in some cases, limited items debuting from supporting publishers. The goal of Local Comic Shop Day is to jump start the holiday buying season for storefront comics specialty retailers by giving comics fans more of what they most desire.

BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT — WAR MOTHER RETURNS IN A RIVETING NEW SERIES! Out of the pages of 4001 A.D., the breakout hero of 41st century charges onward in an high-powered tale of tomorrow from New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and high-octane artist Stephen Segovia (NINJAK, Action Comics)!

Two millennia from today, Earth is not the hospitable home we once we knew. Ravaged by an endless onslaught of war, disaster, and time, the world is littered with desolate badlands, fortified kingdoms, and secretive enclaves where humanity still clings to life… Enclaves like The Grove – Earth’s last known repository of scientific knowledge and bioengineered prosperity. Now, under the leadership of the lone protector called WAR MOTHER and her sentient sniper rifle, the denizens of The Grove face a critical choice: remain where they are and die, or find a new land and flourish. Can War Mother lead her people out of isolation and reignite the fires of a dying planet? And even if she can locate the distant citadel she seeks, can she fight back the horrors and perverse monstrosities that lurk just beyond her doorstep?

In the footsteps of RAI and BOOK OF DEATH, raw power meets tribal warfare as Fred Van Lente & Stephen Segovia forge a modern myth of the near future through the fire-tempered frontier of 41st century Earth for Valiant’s next stunning science-fiction showdown!
