Valiant

Valiant has sent out an advisory that the fourth printing of Divinity #1 will be allocated due to reorder demand. This also means that a fifth printing will be sent to printers. The fourth printing will hit shelves on May 27th, the same day as Divinity #4. The fifth printing will hit shelves June 17th.

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?

The series written by Matt Kindt and artist Trevor Hairsine has been fantastic with every issue. This series will be key as Divinity will step into the pages of other series including the upcoming Imperium #7.
