Tour Britain's Greatest Super-Prison In 'Ninjak' #23 [Preview]
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!
Ninjak Meets 'The Seven Blades Of Master Darque'
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.
Violence Takes To The Stars In 'Khaal' #1 [Preview]
Space opera gets bloodier than ever in Khaal, a new Titan Comics series from writer Stephane Louis and artist Valentin Sécher. It's set aboard a dying prison ship in the depths of outer space, which is far from a hopeful setting, and the title character is the leader of the humans onboard, a brutal cross between Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones and Kratos from God of War.
Ninjak And Eternal Warrior Are The Buddy Comedy Of The Year
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!
Pick Up Jeff Parker And Marc Laming's 'Kings Watch'
This week at Comixology, Dynamite has a big sale on their "Greatest Hits," and as you might expect from the title, there's a lot of really good stuff in there. So good, in fact, that you probably don't need me to tell you about it --- being able to grab twelve issues of American Flagg for nine bucks, for example, is probably something that you already know is a good idea. But if you're on the hunt for a buried treasure and you've got a spare picture of Abraham Lincoln burning a hole in your pocket, then you need to do yourself a favor and pick up Jeff Parker and Marc Laming's Kings Watch, one of the best (and most underrated) crossovers of the past few years.
Jeff Parker On Reuniting The Phantom, Flash Gordon And Mandrake For ‘Kings Watch’ [Interview]
Today, Dynamite announced that they were bringing The Phantom, Mandrake the Magician and Flash Gordon back to comic books with the team of Jeff Parker and Marc Laming. The big return is set to take place in an all-new series called King's Watch, in which the Ghost Who Walks, the Savior of the Universe and... uh... Mandrake find themselves battling against forces that threaten the entire world.
