The Vine Imperative Launches in Imperium #9 – Coming in October!

In 1968…Earth’s most powerful man brokered peace with a secret alien faction. This October…their peace will erupt into war!

Valiant has released an advance preview of Imperium #9 – the FIRST ISSUE of “The Vine Imperative“, an all-new story arc from New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart and red-hot rising star CAFU! Start reading here on October 7th with a perfect new jumping-on point as Toyo Harada’s war to save humanity collides with the only enemy that this planet cannot contain…a sinister network of undercover alien spies!

A deadly chess game between Harada and the alien visitors called the Vine has been unfolding for decades. The Vine plantings, the secret alien agents of a galaxy-spanning race, now hold positions of influence all over the planet. Toyo Harada, Earth’s most powerful psiot, has amassed a bedrock of power through his corporate, political, and super-powered maneuverings. A tense standoff has long held between these two slumbering giants and each was content to bend the world to their will without the other interfering…until now.

Now, openly hunted by the governments of the world, Harada’s campaign of world domination continues from his East African stronghold, the Foundation Zone. Soon, the Vine agents who have watched him for decades will move to keep his machinations in check, and, if Harada wants to rule the world…he’ll have to get rid of the competition first!

Featuring covers by Kano, Giuseppe Camuncoli, and Juan José Ryp!

Valiant’s Divinity Returns in 2016 with Divinity II

Valiant has announced Divinity II – a new prestige format limited series continuing the critically acclaimed, much demanded debut of Valiant’s first all-new, headlining character from the minds of writer Matt Kindt and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine! Set for release in April 2016, Divinity II will reunite Kindt and Hairsine with inker Ryan Winn, colorist David Baron, and cover artists Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic and Tom Muller as Valiant’s all-star creative team reconvenes to deliver a breathtaking new vision of humanity’s next epic encounter with the being called DIVINITY!

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?

Before then Abram Adams’ journey through time and space continues on August 5th in Imperium #7 by writer Joshua Dysart and fan favorite artist Scot Eaton! 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!

And catch up on the entirety of Abram Adams’ first appearance and origin with the Divinity TPB collection – in stores July 15th! For just $9.99, this intro-priced volume re-presents all four issues of DIVINITY’s sold-out limited series!  Start at the beginning to discover the seminal arrival of Valiant’s major new force as he reshapes the landscape of the Valiant Universe in comics and beyond in the months and years to come.
