Matt Kindt, Khari Evans, and Andres Guinaldo begin a brand-new story arc “The First & The Steel” in Ninjak #18.
This new arc will bridge the present and future of Mi-6’s most feared super-spy and explore the world first glimpsed at in last summer’s sold-out BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1. The history behind the formidable partnership between Ninjak and the Eternal Warrior known as The First & The Steel will be revealed!
His body consumed by a preternatural cancer in the present, Colin King’s mind has grasped a prophetic vision of the future – and it is death! Decades from now, the world’s deadliest intelligence operative is still active – and he now fights side by side by the Eternal Warrior, Earth’s immortal master of war, as veterans of a decades long battle to enforce justice and order. But what united these solitary heroes as trusted allies, and how did they become a feared force of good in a world of war, disease, and ever-increasing evil? Glimpse the future of Valiant’s two most dangerous men here as Ninjak and the Eternal Warrior baptize their formative partnership in the blood of many men…and then find out what deadly affliction now threatens Colin King in the present!
