NINJA-K #1 - The Deadly New Monthly Series from Christos Gage & Tomas Giorello

Valiant presents the first lettered look inside NINJA-K #1 – the 40-PAGE FIRST ISSUE of the ALL-NEW, EXPLOSIVE ONGOING SERIES from renowned writer Christos Gage (Netflix’s Daredevil) and superstar artist Tomas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR)!


On November 15th, in the wake of blockbuster debuts including X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1, SECRET WEAPONS #1, and BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1, 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!

For nearly a century, MI-6, the most elite branch of Britain’s clandestine intelligence service, has honed a ruthlessly effective, top-secret division – THE NINJA PROGRAMME – into one of its nation’s most finely wielded weapons. 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.



“[Colin King] is back in London doing his freelance thing, working for MI-6 as well as other clients. But he's isolated,” said writer Christos Gage. “He'll be confronted by the ghosts of the past...both the Ninja Programme's and his own. And many of those ghosts are very, very angry. Things will be shaken up. Friends might become foes, and vice versa. We're creating this rich history, this world, and then stirring it up, turning it upside down, and setting it all loose.”


Valiant’s next essential ongoing series starts here with stunningly precise, 40-page jumping-on point diving swords-first into the mystery at the heart of MI-6’s dark legacy! On November 15th, join comics all-stars Christos Gage and Tomas Giorello as they lead Ninjak on a manhunt through a cold, calculating world of espionage and international intrigue, only in NINJA-K #1 – featuring covers by Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), rising star Lucas Troya, Tonci Zonjic (Who is Jake Ellis?), Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), and David Mack (Kabuki)!



PLUS: Also arriving in stores on November 15th, don’t miss the NINJA-K #1 Brushed Metal Variant Cover – Valiant’s third and final metal cover of 2017! Available to retailers who place qualifying orders on NINJA-K #1, this ultra-limited edition of Valiant’s latest must-read title comes printed via a special process on an actual brushed aluminum metal sheet and features artwork by sensational artist Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT SALVATION)!


THEN: Valiant ICONS – the all-new wave of ongoing titles, prestige-format limited series, and standalone events featuring the publisher's biggest and most demanded heroes – continues in QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1! 


This December, deeply alarming and untrustworthy writer Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and eye-popping artist Kano (Daredevil) give the Valiant Universe the adjective-worthy superheroes it deserves: QUANTUM AND WOODY!



With great power comes great sibling rivalry! This winter, you’ll believe two men and one goat can split a one-bedroom apartment and still be a credible threat to evil and injustice everywhere when QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1 makes headlines and takes names – coming soon from Valiant ICONS!

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …
