If there's one thing we love around here at Bleeding Cool, it's Ninjak, Valiant Entertainment's masturbating Ninja. Why do we love Ninjak so much? Well, for one thing, there's nothing better than a Ninja who's always jakking it all the time. For another thing, people love the art by Javier Pulido for this new series written by Jeff Parker and launching in July that they ignore us padding the word count of the article with lazy dick jokes about Ninjak's name and skip right to the comments to praise Pulido's skills. That's called making our jobs easier. Thanks, Javier Pulido!
So when Valiant emailed to show us these new preview pages from Valiant Uprising, the Free Comic Book Day special whose final order cutoff fast approaches, we knew we had basically no choice but to sit back and coast through another article. So let's do it. The press release tells us:
NINJAK IS FRONT AND CENTER IN THE VALIANT 2021 FCBD SPECIAL THIS AUGUST
June 17th, 2021 – Valiant's stealthy superspy steps into the spotlight this August 14th for Free Comic Book Day 2021…
