Divinity #1 Returns to Earth in February


Valiant Next is chock full of prestige and is another entry in the Valiant universe that reflects the publisher's rather sterling reputation as a publisher. That collection is slated to get another entry on February 11 in Divinity #1, featuring the talents of Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine. Readers get to view a shocking vision of 21st century science fiction in Divinity #1.

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent a man farther into the cosmos than anyone has gone before or since. Lost in the stars, he encountered something unknown. Something that…changed him. Long thought lost and erased from the history books, he has suddenly returned, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity – one who turned the scorched desert into a lush oasis. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. Earth is about to meet a new god. And he’s a communist.

Divinity #1 is seeing a release amidst Ivar, Timewalker #1 by Fred Van Lente and Clayton Henry, Imperium #1 by Joshua Dysart and Doug Braithwaite, Ninjak #1 by Kindt and Clay Mann and Bloodshot Reborn #1 by Jeff Lemire and Mico Suayan. Full press release below.
