AN EPIC JUMPING-ON POINT LEADING DIVINITY THROUGH THE WHOLE OF THE VALIANT UNIVERSE! 

New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, Mind MGMT) and explosive artist Renato Guedes (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Wolverine) present an awe-inspiring introduction to the largest independent superhero universe in comics – as told through the eyes of Valiant’s most powerful cosmic force!

DIVINITY, a lost Russian cosmonaut newly returned to Earth with god-like powers, has successfully restored the world to order after the reality-altering event known as the Stalinverse. But how can a man – even one with near-divine abilities – know for certain that the planet has been truly restored in full? To make sure, Divinity must bear witness to the world as it now stands – heroes, villains, gods, and all – to ensure the rightful order of the Valiant Universe!

From BLOODSHOT to FAITH to NINJAK and dozens of surprise guest stars, traverse the world of Valiant’s most enduring icons as DIVINITY guides a standalone entry point into the most acclaimed publishing line in comics today!

Valiant Reveals Second Wave of Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe Covers

Valiant has revealed its second wave of Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe variant covers – the next in an all-new line of steel-shattering shelf covers spotlighting the battle-hardened heroes of the upcoming VALIANT DIGITAL webseries! Arriving on shelves in comic shops everywhere throughout the summer, get your first look at the hotly anticipated live-action debut of Valiant’s most iconic and renowned heroes – including Ninjak, Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Livewire, Archer & Armstrong, and more – as realized by the series’ star-studded cast.

Announced last year at New York Comic Con, Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe is a first-of-its-kind, live-action digital series. Premiering online in late 2017, the bone-shattering, six-episode series will pit MI-6’s master assassin, Ninjak, against a gauntlet of Valiant’s most formidable heroes for a bloodstained battle royale torn from the pages of the largest independent superhero universe in comics. The series will be the first project from VALIANT DIGITAL – a new division of Valiant Entertainment committed to producing original content in live-action, animation and emerging media created specifically for the digital arena.

Colin King is Ninjak, MI-6’s deadliest intelligence operative and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before. In 2017, the world’s most dangerous super-spy goes to war with the Valiant Universe…

Each Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe variant cover is available as a standard “order all” shelf cover and will be available for retailers to order in unlimited quantities at the standard suggested retail price.

Review: Divinity III Stalinverse: Aric, Son Of The Revolution #1

div3-aric_001_cover-b_bernardReturned to Earth from the stars with the ultimate nuclear deterrent – the indestructible X-O Manowar armor – the champion of socialism has single-handedly consolidated the state’s military and political superiority at home and abroad. But when a surprise attack from the Deadside shines an untoward light on the modern-day Soviet Union’s darkest secret, will Aric pursue his mission…or justice for the quiet dead of an empire’s oppression?

The first question you’re probably going to want answered is whether this tie-in is going to be essential reading if you’re loving the Divinity III main series thus far, or if it’s merely a pleasant distraction?

The good news is that it’s a bit of both.

We get quite an interesting take on X-O Manowar, complete with some scenes lifted straight from the fourth issue of X-O Manowar, that allows us some insight into Aric of Dacia’s state of mind in the Stalinverse. Although it remains to be seen how much of an impact this comic will have on the remaining three issues in the main series, getting the peek into his mind via the narration boxes we get is still interesting.

If you’re an X-O fan already, you’ll probably really enjoy this comic’s alternate take on one of comicdom’s most underrated characters – I did. Likewise, if you’re loving the overall Stalinverse.  However, it’s unlikely that unless you’re already reading Divinity III or you’re already a fan of X-O Manowar, that you’ll actually find anything here beyond an enjoyable story – which isn’t anything to turn your nose up at.

You’ll notice I purposely avoided talking about the story because I don’t want to give anything away when it comes to the plot that has an incredibly interesting moment midway through that will make several Valiant fans happy.

For X-O fans this is bordering on a must-read comic, for those reading the main series, you’ll want to check this out for the moment mentioned above, and for the rest of you? Well, that’s on you. This is a well written, wonderfully illustrated one-shot comic from one of the most exciting publishers around right now.

“THE VINE IMPERATIVE” boils over!

The world is suspended within balances of power. Tense and delicate terms of peace, crisscrossing and humming just below the surface. The Vine plantings, undercover alien spies of a galaxy-spanning race, hold positions of influence all over the planet. Toyo Harada, Earth’s most unstoppable psiot, amassed a bedrock of power through his corporate, political, and super-powered maneuverings.

As Harada presses his gambit to wage war for utopia, the agents of the Vine who have watched him for decades move to keep the megalomaniac in check. And if Harada wants to save the world…he’ll have to get rid of the competition. Cold war turns red hot as New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER) and Valiant superstar CAFU (UNITY) unfold another chapter of IMPERIUM, the comic that Herotaku calls “an entertaining, compelling read month after month”!

Cover by KANO

Out of the darkest recesses of the 20th century…the WAR-MONGER rises to rage against the combined might of Valiant’s most elite superteam!

For thousands of years, the Eternal Warrior has waged battle; and for thousands of years, one spirit has vexed him…the spirit of warfare itself. Today, Gilad Anni-Padda and his teammates in Unity must reckon with a long – thought-forgotten enemy–unseen since Unit-Y faced it in World War II – now returned to bring destruction and death to the heroes once and for all. Unity may not survive the coming of War-Monger!

From New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY) and red-hot artists Jose Luis and Jefte Palo, the unstoppable War-Monger tears a swath through the ranks of Unity right here in the next volume of the chart-topping series IGN calls “a big superhero book done right.”

From New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Green Arrow) and Matt Kindt (NINJAK, Mind MGMT), and Eisner award-winning artist Paolo Rivera (Daredevil) comes an epic ten millennia in the making – now in deluxe oversized hardcover format!

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers — those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.

Cover by JELENA KEVIC-DJURDJEVIC

Re-presenting the sold-out sci-fi epic from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (NINJAK, Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), the critically acclaimed debut of Valiant’s first all-new headlining character gets the deluxe oversized hardcover treatment!

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?
