First Look – Book of Death: The Fall of Ninjak #1

 

 

From Valiant Entertainment—

 

So let it be written, so let it be done… On August 26th, all-star creators Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine reveal Ninjak’s final mission in an all-new vision of the future ripped directly from the pages of BOOK OF DEATH!

 

Valiant is proud to present the first look inside BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 – an essential installment to this summer’s monumental comics event from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (NINJAK, Mind MGMT) and Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY)! This August, the blockbuster creative team behind 2015’s breakout series, DIVINITY, reunites to reveal the final fate of Valiant’s deadliest master spy in an all-new standalone adventure!

 

In the ruins of his mansion, Colin King hunkers down as the last living member of Unity after the Third Armor Hunt – or so he thinks. A visit from an old friend and a peace offering present the chance for Ninjak to break the cycle of death and escape the horrible fate foretold in the Book of the Geomancer. Will he betray his dead friends or will THE FALL OF NINJAK come to pass and give rise to a very familiar future…?

 

On August 26th, join master storytellers Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine to discover the never-before-revealed future of MI-6’s most elite operative – and the Valiant Universe’s along with it – in BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1! Featuring covers by Kano (THE DELINQUENTS), Clay Mann (NINJAK), Robert Gill (BOOK OF DEATH), and Das Pastoras (Thor: God of Thunder), find out why Ninjak will be the last warrior standing as the world falls to pieces in the next must-read chapter of BOOK OF DEATH!

 

Plus: don’t miss the essential first chapter of the blockbuster Valiant event of 2015 in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4) – in stores July 15th! Start reading here as all-star creators Robert Venditti, Robert Gill, and Doug Braithwaite begin a thousand-year journey into the future of the Valiant Universe…and rain, fire, blood and war on the heroes of today right here!

 

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?

 

Find out on July 15th in BOOK OF DEATH #1 (of 4)…and then watch as Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine forge the future of the Valiant Universe in BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 on August 26th!
