Behind the years of training… Underneath the high-tech gadgetry… MI-6’s most experienced operative is still flesh and blood. So just how is a mortal man like Colin King able to survive in a world filled with telekinetic psiots, eternal warriors, and sentient suits of alien armor? The key to Ninjak’s survival is buried deep in the past…and today, the world’s most dreaded super-spy prepares to reveal his most closely guarded secrets!

Ninjak #0 Most Good Hobby Variant

These variants were meant to be given away at the 2017 New York Comic Con with the Jason David Frank Variant given away at his signing on the Friday, October 6th (one per attendee, whilst supplies last) and the Cast variant given away the next during the cast signing at the Valiant booth #1635 (again, one per attendee whilst supplies last).

However, legend has it that the Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe Cast Photo Cover variants were destroyed hence the variant remained "unreleased" but a small number of them seem to have survived (the Valiant fan site suggests 3-10, which could be file or complimentary copies and there may be more out there).

The cover from the NYCC Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe Cast Photo Cover was later re-used for Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe #1 Cast Photo Cover (Cover C), published in January 2018.
