Valiant is proud to announce that BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 – an essential one-shot chapter torn from the pages of Valiant’s cataclysmic summer event – has sold out at the distributor level and will return in October with the BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK #1 SECOND PRINTING! Following the multiple-printing and sold-out success of BOOK OF DEATH #1 and BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF BLOODSHOT #1, readers have declared that BOOK OF DEATH is the runaway hit of the summer!
Join the fall of the Valiant Universe here as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine – the superstar creative team that brought you DIVINITY – reunite to reveal the dark future and final fate of MI-6’s most elite operative with a special standalone adventure torn from the Geomancer’s BOOK OF DEATH!
In the ruins of his mansion, Colin King hunkers down as the last living member of Unity after the Third Armor Hunt – or so he thinks. A visit from an old friend and a peace offering present the chance for Ninjak to break the cycle of death and escape the horrible fate foretold in the Book of the Geomancer. Will he betray his dead friends or will the fall of Ninjak come to pass and give rise to a very familiar future?
“Earlier this summer, BOOK OF DEATH #1 cemented itself as Valiant’s single-most successful debut of the modern era and now, after several subsequent sell-outs, we’re seeing demand from fans and retailers continue to build across each following chapter,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “Each one of our creators is bringing their A-game to this event and it shows. From reviewer reaction to strong sales on the ground in stores across the country, BOOK OF DEATH has proven itself to be the highest-selling, most acclaimed event from an independent publisher in recent memory – and the best is yet to come.”
So let it be written, so let it be done… Critics are praising Ninjak’s last stand!
“Matt Kindt gives Colin King’s exit plenty of interesting moments, from robot vs. ninja battles to plummeting space real estate.” – IGN
“This story is a must-read, especially for fans of the larger Valiant Universe.” – All Comic
