New ‘Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe’ Series Kicks off Valient Digital Slate

Award-winning comics publisher launches new division to produce short-form content for emerging media

“Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe” was officially announced during the Valiant New York Comic-Con panel and included a first look at the digital series.

Directed by Aaron and Sean Schoenke (“Bat in the Sun”), the six-episode “Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe” is the first project from Valiant Digital, which will produce original content in live-action and animation, as well as media created for the digital arena.

The cast features Michael Rowe as Ninjak, Jason David Frank as Bloodshot, John Morrison as the Eternal Warrior, Chantelle Barry as Roku, Kevin Porter as Armstrong, Ciera Foster as Livewire and Derek Theler as X-O Manowar. Additional cast will be announced in the near future.

“Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe” tells the story of Ninjak (Colin King), who is MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak is forced to betray his closest allies. On the run, he faces off against powerful heroes for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire. In 2017, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe.

Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani added, “We’ve been quietly working over the last year to build a series of a scale and ambition that has never before been attempted in the digital space.”

“‘Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe’ is a showcase for the incredible characters and storytelling that Valiant has exhibited from its inception. We are incredibly excited to finally be sharing the first project from Valiant Digital with the Valiant fanbase, the comic book faithful and a whole new legion of fans who consume pop culture in the digital arena, but have yet to purchase their first Valiant comic.”

“We’re bringing the same passion and intensity that helped us produce some of the best comics in the business and coupling that with an incredible, first-class team of filmmakers to create an experience that must be seen to be believed.”

“Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe” will debut online in late 2017.
