This is kind of unique… this is a preview for the second feature in the new Ninjack series from Valiant. The issues will be 40 pages each with a main story by Matt Kindt and Clay Mann. But there will be a second feature in each issue called The Lost Files by Kindt and Butch Guice focusing on Colin King's early days with MI-6, but the lost files will be an integral part of the main storyline as well…
Feels kind of like how on the television series Arrow we see the main story and then the flashbacks but the flashbacks tend to tie into whatever the main story is doing.
More than just a typical back-up feature, each chapter of NINJAK: THE LOST FILES will be integral to the lead narrative of NINJAK's ongoing series. Not only will NINJAK: THE LOST FILES reveal the secrets of Ninjak's training and origin for the first time in any medium, but also add new depth and dimension to the epic adventures of MI-6's leading super-spy as he begins the hunt for the Shadow Seven – the clandestine heads of the terrorist Weaponeer organization – in the modern day.
Then: meet inexperienced MI-6 recruit Colin King on his first mission in the field as he learns the basics of spycraft and counterintelligence, and develops a volatile relationship with his first handler. Now: Colin King is Ninjak, the world's foremost intelligence operative, weapons expert, and master assassin. And he's tracking the Shadow Seven – a secret cabal of shinobi masters with mysterious ties to his training and tragic past.
Ninjak #1 will be in stores on March 11th.
