This Wednesday, April 6th is New Comics Day and coming out from Valiant Comics is Ninjak #14. Writer Matt Kindt continues to deliver an action-packed, thrilling adventure for our favorite MI-6 operative. This issue begins a new story arc entitled “The Siege of King’s Castle.” This is the perfect time to jump into this phenomenal series if you haven’t read an issue. And by the looks of it (see preview pages below), things are about to change and get real.
Recently, writer Matt Kindt spoke with Newsarama about this upcoming four-issue event:
“Colin is really going to lose everything. Which is part of the fun of this arc. We’re stripping Ninjak down to the basics – 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’ is a kind of reversal of that,” writer Matt Kindt stated. “Stripping all of his modern trappings away to see how he’s changed since he became Ninjak. The nature of his work in espionage and hero work has the potential to really skew a personality – and I think Colin has really lost himself. He’s lost who he was and who he aspired to be. This is the arc where he’ll (hopefully) realize this. Plus fighting. Lots of ninja fighting.”
Editor Tom Brennan emphasized the significance of this arc:
“Not only is ‘THE SIEGE OF KING’S CASTLE’ going to be a decisive turning point in Ninjak’s history, it’s also probably one of the single most gut-wrenching Valiant stories that we’ve told to date,” said Brennan. “This is Ninjak’s ‘Skyfall’ or ‘Born Again’ moment –stripped-down, high-stakes storytelling that is going to shatter notions of who and what we thought Ninjak truly was…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, Ninjak’s status in the Valiant Universe is going to change forever.”
