Matt Kindt Leads "The Siege of King's Castle" For Ninjak In 2016


Valiant have just dropped the fourth of five 2016 teasers they're debuting this week with looks ahead at their line-up of titles for the New Year.

So we far we've gotten new glimpses of previously announced series including A&A, Divinity II and the 4001 AD event…but now we're getting something entirely new: "The Siege of King's Castle," coming to the Ninjak series in 2016 by ongoing writer Matt Kindt and artist Diego Bernard (formerly of X-O Manowar).

Other than the creative team, no further details are known at this time, but the title would seem to be an obvious allusion to Colin King's – aka MI-6 agent Ninjak – ancestral family home and current base of operations first introduced by Kindt in the series' opening story arc.

Kindt and Valiant have been using the Ninjak series as a launchpad for many of the major new concepts in the Valiant Universe – including the return of Shadowman in the current "Operation: Deadside" arc – so it's likely that "Siege" will represent big changes for the character. And whatever they might be, they sure look to be bloody…
