One of Valiant's announcements from C2E2 for this summer is a new Ninjak story arc called The Shadow Wars kicking up with issue #6. The series will continue to be written by Matt Kindt while he will be welcoming artists Raul Allen (Hawkeye), Juan Jose Ryp (Black Summer), Stephen Segovia (Convergence) to the series along with regular artists Clay Mann and Butch Guice.
Ninjak went to Tokyo to destroy the shadowy Weaponeer arms cartel from the inside out, beginning with its secret council of shinobi masters…the Shadow Seven. Now, the world's top super-spy is cutting his way through the four death-defying members – The Barbe, Fitzy, Fakir, and Sanguine – that stand between him and the one secret that still eludes him… Who really wields the power behind the world's most powerful terrorist network? Who is the secret seventh member of the Shadow Seven? And what do they want with Colin King?
The storyline starts in August with Ninjak #6 drawn by Allen, #7 by Ryp, #8 by Segovia and #9 is the return of Mann. Guice will continue to draw the Lost Files second story. Featuring covers by Mico Suayan (Bloodshot Reborn), Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Divinity), Dave Johnson (100 Bullets), Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), and Clayton Henry (Ivar,Timewalker).
