800 Pages Of Classic And Modern Ninjak Are Heading Our Way In November

by Hannah Means Shannon

When Valiant do an omnibus edition, they really do it right. Gathering over 800 pages of classic and modern Ninjak material into one volume, the publisher are producing a definitive edition of the covert agent’s exploits so far set to arrive in November 2017.

Ninjak: The Complete Classic Omnibus Oversized Hardcover is going to collect the debut and complete adventures of the master-spy, ranging from his first appearance in the pages of Bloodshot in 1993 to the most recent missions in his solo series. This is the first time the classic and modern adventures of Ninjak have been collected into one volume.

For those who might not be familiar, Colin King is a “sophisticated British playboy by day, elite super-spy by night” and he has both a brilliant mind and lethal training. He operates on a global level, and is frequently pitted against some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations and cartels.

This massive hardcover is going to feature writers like Mark Moretti (Eternal Warrior), Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning (Guardians of the Galaxy), Jorge Gonzalez (X-O Manowar), Mike Baron (Nexus), Kevin VanHook (Bloodshot) and more alongside artists such as Joe Quesada (Daredevil), Bryan Hitch (The Ultimates), and Luke Ross (Captain America).

Some of the material contained in the collection includes:

– Over 30 full-color issues, including Ninjak’s landmark first appearances from BLOODSHOT (1993) #6–7, his complete solo series run from NINJAK (1994) #1–26, #0 and #00NINJAK YEARBOOK 1994 #1, and SECRET WEAPONS (1993) #5 – collected together in one volume for the first time anywhere.
 
– Over 20 pages of bonus content, including rarely seen artwork and extras.
 
– A stunning cover by comics legend Joe Quesada, fully remastered by Paul Mounts (The Ultimates).
 
– An oversized, deluxe hardcover presentation.

This edition follows on from appealing collections like Archer & Armstrong: The Complete Classic Omnibus and X-O Manowar: The Complete Classic Omnibus Vol. 1.

The timing on this new collection ties into the arrival of a new Ninjak series in Ninja-K #1 as an ongoing series in November also. Written by Christos Gage (Netflix’s Daredevil) and drawn by Tomas Giorello (X-O Manowar), the new series will make big reveals about Ninjak’s origins and operate in multiple points in time.
