It’s all about the hair in Valiant’s ‘Roku’ miniseries

Cullen Bunn and Ramón F. Bachs take the deadly assassin on a globe-trotting adventure.

Roku, the former-lover-turned-adversary of Valiant’s Ninjak, will star in her own four-issue miniseries, courtesy of Cullen Bunn, Ramón F. Bachs, Stéphane Paitreau and Dave Sharpe.

“Roku is perhaps the deadliest assassin in the Valiant Universe, and this is her first solo series,” Bunn said on his blog. “I’m sending her on a globe-trotting adventure where she will not get a chance to catch her breath. This is The Killer meets Hard-Boiled meets Replacement Killers meets John Wick… with psychic assassins.”

One of the coolest thing about Roku is her hair. Described as “psychokinetic, it’s extraordinary strong, razor sharp and capable of generating intense heat and flames — like all good hair should be. Hopefully this comes into play, a lot, during the miniseries.

“Roku has such a terrific hairstyle I can’t wait to draw,” Bachs said in the press release. “Cullen’s a great writer and a wonderful person. I am very lucky to be working with him again!”
