Valiant is proud to announce â€œTHE SIEGE OF KINGâ€™S CASTLEâ€ â€“ a ruthless new story arc and all-new jumping-on point beginning this April in NINJAK #14! Jump on board the acclaimed adventures of MI-6â€™s most elite super-spy here as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D., Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Diego Bernard (X-O MANOWAR) open a brand new chapter for Colin Kingâ€¦by destroying the life he once knew one brick at a time. Stripped of the wealth, technology, and resources that enabled his career as an international intelligence operative, Ninjak will be forced to rely on his fists and cunning aloneâ€¦even as Rokuâ€™s mission of revenge and retribution unearths stunning new revelations about his origin and true purposeâ€¦
â€œColin is really going to lose everything. Which is part of the fun of this arc. Weâ€™re stripping Ninjak down to the basics â€“ to see what makes him tick now. We saw his origins and how he got to where he is now. ‘THE SIEGE OF KING’S CASTLE’Â is a kind of reversal of that,â€ writer Matt Kindt told Newsarama. â€œStripping all of his modern trappings away to see how heâ€™s changed since he became Ninjak. The nature of his work in espionage and hero work has the potential to really skew a personality â€“ and I think Colin has really lost himself. Heâ€™s lost who he was and who he aspired to be. This is the arc where heâ€™ll (hopefully) realize this. Plus fighting. Lots of ninja fighting.â€
Colin King, the elite MI-6 intelligence operative codenamed Ninjak, has confronted his past. Heâ€™s survived the gauntlet of the Shadow Seven. Heâ€™s walked into the Deadside and returned a changed man. Now his greatest trial yet will come to pass as the ruthless assassin called Roku returns to lay siege to Ninjakâ€™s present and future by destroying his life from the inside out â€“ and only the death of Colin King will stop her.
â€œNot only is â€˜THE SIEGE OF KINGâ€™S CASTLEâ€™ going to be a decisive turning point in Ninjakâ€™s history, itâ€™s also probably one of the single most gut-wrenching Valiant stories that weâ€™ve told to date,â€ said Editor Tom Brennan. â€œThis is Ninjakâ€™s â€˜Skyfallâ€™ or â€˜Born Againâ€™ moment â€“stripped-down, high-stakes storytelling that is going to shatter notions of who and what we thought Ninjak truly wasâ€¦and leave plenty of wreckage along the way. Roku is about to put Colin King through the meat grinder and when we see him on the other side, Ninjakâ€™s status in the Valiant Universe is going to change forever.â€
This April, the most dangerous trial yet of Colin Kingâ€™s deadly career starts in â€œTHE SIEGE OF KINGâ€™S CASTLEâ€ â€“ an all-new jumping-on point beginning in NINJAK #14! Featuring covers by Jelena Kevic Djurdjevic (Thor), Mike Choi (X-Force), Jeffrey Veregge (Red Wolf), Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS), Andres Guinaldo (Justice League Dark), and Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), espionage, intrigue, and action collide this April when Matt Kindt and Diego Bernard lead off a four-issue blockbuster that will leave no one unscathed â€“ only in NINJAK #14!
