Ninjak And Shadowman Unite For New Valiant Event Series ‘Rapture’

Rapture, Valiant Entertainment

If your problem with the Valiant Universe has been that it just hasn't been heavy metal enough, then folks, I have some good news, and it comes in the form of Ninjak jump-kicking a skeleton's head off while also chopping that same skeleton in half with a katana.

In May, Matt Kindt and Cafu are launching Rapture, a new crossover that teams up Ninjak and Shadowman, focusing on an ancient war that threatens to destroy both Heaven and Earth.

The high concept behind X-O Manowar has always been the book's biggest strengths, but when the series returns for its new volume in 2017, Matt Kindt, Tomas Giorello, and Diego Rodriguez are diving into the nature of his story in a way that I don't think we've ever seen.

The ongoing series will feature four distinct arcs that will chart Aric of Dacia's rise on an alien planet: "Soldier," "General," "Emperor," and finally to "Visigoth." Now, with the debut of the series slated for March, we're getting an early look at X-O Manowar #2 --- and unsurprisingly, it looks like it's going to be pretty brutal. Check it out below!

Take A Tour Of Britain’s Greatest Super-Prison In ‘Ninjak’ #23 [Preview]

Ninjak #23, Valiant Entertainment

Listen: At this point, we all know that I am deeply, fervently in the tank for Ninjak and its incredibly rewarding blend of over-the-top high concept action and deeply strange psychological storytelling, mostly because I talk about how much I love it at literally every opportunity. Because of that, I've been excited about the upcoming "Seven Blades of Master Darque" storyline since it was announced, and while some of you might still be on the fence, they didn't need to do anything else to lure me in. But they did it anyway.

As this preview reveals, the storyline that kicks off in next week's Ninjak #23 from Matt Kindt, Marc Laming, and Ulises Arreola will feature a cutaway diagram of an underground prison full of deathtraps. Don't miss it!

Kindt And Laming Pit Valiant’s Greatest Ninja Against ‘The Seven Blades Of Master Darque’ In ‘Ninjak’ #23

Ninjak #23, Valiant Entertainment

Ninjak became a ninja when an undead monk psychically commanded him to train. The thing is, Ninjak isn't the Undead Monk's only student. There are six more. And while Ninjak did a pretty thorough (and violent) job of taking them out in the book's first arc, it seems that they've found new a new employer: the mystical and sinister Master Darque.

Meet the Seven Blades of Master Darque in the new arc by Marc Laming and Matt Kindt, kicking off in Ninjak #23 in January.

Ninjak And The Eternal Warrior Are The Buddy Comedy Pair Of The Year In ‘Ninjak’ #20 [Preview]

Ninjak #20, Valiant Entertainment

Who doesn't love a buddy comedy? There's something about a pair of mismatched heroes that are meant to be doing something serious that keeps getting derailed by how incompatible they are. It's a formula that almost always works, whether it's something like couple of of cops where one is straitlaced and by-the-books and the other is a little wild, or if one of the cops is a British ninja super-spy and the other is the magically immortal fist and steel of the Earth itself, and instead of crime they're fighting magical spiders.

Also, it all happens in the future. And Michel Fiffe does a cover for it.

So maybe it's not your standard buddy comedy, but Ninjak #20 has some pretty great moments between Colin King and the guest-starring Eternal Warrior. Check it out a preview!
