Valiant is proud to reveal its second wave of NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE variant covers – the next in an all-new line of steel-shattering shelf covers spotlighting the battle-hardened heroes of the upcoming VALIANT DIGITAL webseries! Arriving on shelves in comic shops everywhere throughout the summer, get your first look at the hotly anticipated live-action debut of Valiant’s most iconic and renowned heroes – including Ninjak, Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Livewire, Archer & Armstrong, and more – as realized by the series’ star-studded cast.

Announced last year at New York Comic Con, NINJAK VS. THE VALIANT UNIVERSE is a first-of-its-kind, live-action digital series. Premiering online in late 2017, the bone-shattering, six-episode series will pit MI-6’s master assassin, Ninjak, against a gauntlet of Valiant’s most formidable heroes for a bloodstained battle royale torn from the pages of the largest independent superhero universe in comics. The series will be the first project from VALIANT DIGITAL – a new division of Valiant Entertainment committed to producing original content in live-action, animation and emerging media created specifically for the digital arena.

Colin King is Ninjak, MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before. In 2017, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe…

All summer long, get ready for a steel-shattering battle royale between the world’s most feared super-spy and a deadly gauntlet of the world’s most formidable warriors with the NINJAK VS.
