Divinity TPB Joins Imperium #7 in Second Printing


Valiant can't seem to keep enough of their quality books on the shelves. The latest works to join the reprint parade are Divinity TPB and Imperium #7, both of which will see second printings in September. The $9.99 Divinity TPB collects the first four issues and will return to stores on September 16.

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. How long can it be before the first confrontation between mankind and DIVINITY begins?

Imperium #7 joins the reprint fun on September 16 as well, bringing another look at the work by Joshua Dysart and Scot Eaton. The telepathic mastermind. The alien assassin. The mercenary super-soldier. The mad scientist. And the killer robot with a soul. Toyo Harada has collected the monsters that will make his vision of world peace a reality. Now he pursues the most difficult and desirable asset of all – the spaceman with all the powers of a god – the outcast who can rewrite reality with a thought – the man who is no longer a man – the all-powerful being who is simply called DIVINITY.

Full press release below.
DIVINITY Strikes Twice with Second Printings for IMPERIUM #7 and DIVINITY TPB!

The sold-out streak for 2015's breakout new character continues with two new printings in September!

Valiant is proud to announce that the DIVINITY TPB and IMPERIUM #7 – featuring DIVINITY's next appearance after the conclusion of his acclaimed limited series debut – have both sold out at the distributor level and will soon return to store shelves with new printings on September 16th.

Debuting in the pages of a prestige format limited series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (NINJAK, Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Trevor Harisine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis) in early 2015, DIVINITY’s landmark first appearance not only spawned near-universal critical acclaim, but also garnered a record-setting five printings of its first issue, along with repeated distributor allocations and back-issue sales, making it one of Valiant's most demanded new series to date.

Now, after debuting as top ten trade paperback, the $9.99 collection re-presenting DIVINITY #1-4 has also sold out at the distributor level and will return with the DIVINITY TPB SECOND PRINTING on September 16th. Now is the chance to jump on board the sci-fi epic of the year and discover why DIVINITY is the five-time sold-out series that The Onion/A.V. Club calls the "best new superhero" of 2015!

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. How long can it be before the first confrontation between mankind and DIVINITY begins?

But DIVINITY's impact doesn't end there. Most recently, the character made his first foray into the larger Valiant Universe in IMPERIUM #7 – the next installment of the acclaimed "BROKEN ANGELS" story arc by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER) and veteran artist Scot Eaton (Black Panther)!

The telepathic mastermind. The alien assassin. The mercenary super-soldier. The mad scientist. And the killer robot with a soul. Toyo Harada has collected the monsters that will make his vision of world peace a reality. Now he pursues the most difficult and desirable asset of all – the spaceman with all the powers of a god – the outcast who can rewrite reality with a thought – the man who is no longer a man – the all-powerful being who is simply called DIVINITY.

Now sold out at distributor level, DIVINITY's latest appearance will also return to stores across the country on September 16th in the IMPERIUM #7 SECOND PRINTING!
