Exclusive Art: Ninjak Returns In 'X-O Manowar' #5

Earlier this week, we brought you a teaser from Valiant Comics featuring the return of Ninjak -- now the publisher has officially announced the cult favorite character's return in September within the pages of "X-O Manowar" #5. The first issue, of an all-new arc, written by Robert Venditti and illustrated by "Batman R.I.P.'s"'s Lee Garbett, will feature X-O being marked for death by the mysterious Ninjak. Plus, as a special treat for old-school Valiant fans, the first appearance of Ninjak will also be reprinted. The issue will have variant covers by Mico Suayan, Patrick Zircher and Philip Tan -- and we're pleased to give you an exclusive first look at the Tan cover below:
