This was exactly the type of follow up to storytelling I was referring to on this week's episode of the CBMFP. Check it and the details below. From Valiant:
Valiant is proud to announce “THE FIST & THE STEEL” – AN ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT beginning this August in NINJAK #18! Many years from today, see where the battle-scarred road has taken Valiant's deadliest operative as writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D., DIVINITY II) and acclaimed artists Khari Evans (HARBINGER) and Andres Guinaldo (Justice League Dark) deploy a seasoned Colin King into an unknown tomorrow! He may not be as fast or as strong as he once was, but with the Eternal Warrior at his side, Ninjak will show the world that his steel is as sharp as ever!
Many years from now, Earth’s immortal master of war and the world’s deadliest intelligence operative fight side by side as veteran brothers-in-arms. The decades of warfare and combat have taken their toll, but Ninjak and the Eternal Warrior still spend their waning days as humanity’s guardians, protecting it from the myriad threats that loom over the horizon of Earth’s future. But what united these wayward heroes as trusted allies, and how did they become the most feared force against evil?
Plus: Back in the present, the unthinkable has happened to Ninjak and his fellow MI-6 agents that survived the horrors of the Deadside! Infected with an aggressive and lethal cancer from his exposure to a noxious parallel dimension, Ninjak must reach inward for his one shot at survival. As Colin King enters a deep meditative state, his mind opens to futuristic visions of “THE FIST & THE STEEL”…and the clues that could save his cancer-ridden body!
Picking up the tale first glimpsed in last summer’s BOOK OF DEATH: THE FALL OF NINJAK, jump on board the death-defying adventures of the MI-6’s most feared super-spy here as the Eternal Warrior joins the fight to make all of Earth their battlefield! This August, the most exhilarating standalone tale of the century begins as Matt Kindt, Khari Evans, and Andres Guinaldo unsheathe a razor-sharp turning point for “THE FIST & THE STEEL,” only in NINJAK #18 – featuring covers by Diego Latorre (Dante’s Inferno), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), Stephen Segovia (Action Comics), and Adam Gorham (DEAD DROP)!
