Ninjak finds himself lost in a world where the Soviet government maintains its control of the world by using super-soldiers that might seem pretty familiar in Divinity III. Now, one of those soldiers, Komandar Bloodshot, is stepping into the spotlight to reveal a world where Project Rising Spirit might actually be even more evil than they are in the regular Valiant universe, and we've got an exclusive preview to show you just how bad things can be. Especially if you're a rabbit.
There's a lot to love about Bloodshot USA. There's the fact that Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite are following up Bloodshot Island, a story where the hook was that there were five Bloodshots, with a story where the hook is that there are millions of Bloodshots that have taken over the entire island of Manhattan and are not trying to kill everyone. Also, Ninjak's in it.
But I think the best thing might be the page that gets new readers up to speed, where Bloodshot's former bosses at Project Rising Spirit talk about how he went rogue... and then went even more rogue. I always figured you could only go rogue once. Check it out, along with some of the other action, in a preview below!
After weeks of hinting at a top secret project with fan-favorite actors Michael Rowe and Jason David Frank, Valiant Entertainment finally pulled back the curtain on Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe at New York Comic Con. The first trailer for the upcoming digital series brought out the first appearances of familiar Valiant characters like Ninjak and Bloodshot, but we also got glimpses at Archer and Armstrong, X-O Manowar, and the villain of the first season, Roku.
Developed by Valiant Digital in conjunction with Bat in the Sun --- they of the Super Power Beat Down --- Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe isn't set to arrive until 2017, but we had a chance to chat with some of the stars at NYCC to learn more about breaking new ground and setting the pace for Valiant's live-action efforts.
Over the course of the past month or so Valiant Entertainment has been teasing the announcement of a project featuring live action actors, but the exact details have been kept under wraps until now.
Today at New York Comic Con, the publisher unveiled a new division known as Valiant Digital, aimed at creating digital-first short film content, and debuted the trailer for a blockbuster six-part webseries titled Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe.
Being trapped on a raft for however long it takes to drift from "Bloodshot Island" to the upcoming "Bloodshot USA" has given the cast of Bloodshot a lot of time to swap war stories. So settle in and get a preview of Bloodshot Reborn #18 and the stories of the Castaways From Bloodshot Island!
Ninjak has joined up with Bloodshot and his predecessors in the pages of Bloodshot USA #2. What happens when you cram five super-soldiers into a van and send them into a Manhattan full of nanite-enhanced killers? Read the preview to find out!
With Bloodshot's relaunch in October as the four-issue Bloodshot USA looming large, that raises the question of just how Jeff Lemire and Doug Braithwaite are going to top what they've already done. And now, with a preview of the first issue, we know exactly how.
First, they're going to infect the entire population of Manhattan with Bloodshot nanites that'll turn them into mindless killing machines, and second --- oh hell yes --- Ninjak's getting involved.
Gather 'round, children, and let me tell you a tale of times past. Back in the days before the Internet, back when you could not read through a disturbingly thorough summary of any comic book character and/or lightsaber fighting style anytime you wanted, we got our information from Who's Whos and Official Handbooks, and by gum, that's how we liked it.
Nowadays, even in this more modern era, Valiant is keeping the dream alive with Valiant Universe Handbook 2016, a compendium of information that'll bring you up to date on characters like Bloodshot, X-O Manowar, Faith, and of course, Ninjak. Really though, the only fact you need to know about that dude is that he rules. Check out a preview!
If you've been keeping up with the events of Bloodshot Reborn, then you already know that Ray Garrison isn't the only person to ever be modified into the unstoppable soldier known as Bloodshot. In the current "Bloodshot Island" story arc, readers have seen prototypes that date back almost a hundred years --- including a dog named Bloodhound, which is a pretty solid contender for the Sensational Character Find of 2016.
But in October, it seems that writer Jeff Lemire and artist Doug Braithwaite are taking that idea to the next level with Bloodshot USA, a four-issue miniseries that finds Project Rising Spirit releasing its nanites on New York City --- and turning the entire island of Manhattan into Bloodshots.
This summer, Valiant is flashing forward nearly two-thousand years into the future and checking in on what’s going on with their most popular characters in the year 4001 AD with a series of special one shots.
