VS, Vol. 1 Delivers a Vision of the Future of Warfare and Entertainment

Powerhouse creative team—writer Iván Brandon, artist Esad Ribić, painter Nic Klein, and designer Tom Muller—will release VS, Vol. 1 this August.

In VS, war has become a spectator sport. Privately funded armies of superstar soldiers march into battle for fame, profit, and the glory of their sponsor nations. And when a new generation of soldiers arrives, top gladiator Satta Flynn discovers just how fleeting the limelight can be.

VS combines spectacular action and darkly humorous satire as it explores humanity’s desire for fame—and penchant for self-destruction.

VS, Vol. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0693-6, Diamond code: MAY180088) will be available in comics shops on Wednesday, August 8th and bookstores on Tuesday, August 14th.

A cosmos in chaos!

At the farthest edge of human understanding, Abram Adams – the lost cosmonaut called Divinity – and his comrade, Myshka, have discovered the purpose of their existence in this universe… and in the next one beyond our own. Now, as a seemingly infinite pantheon of mythic gods and cosmic beings rises to meet them head-on, they’ll be forced to ignite a maelstrom of untold proportions to save their child from a fate worse than annihilation…

The age of Eternity is nigh! New York Times best-selling author Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR) and spectacular artist Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY) lead the thrilling finale to the ambitious feat of visionary science fiction storytelling that will forever expand the boundaries of the Valiant Universe!

Review: Days of Hate #1

The United States of America, 2022.
The loss that ripped them apart drove one into the arms of the police state and the other towards a guerrilla war against the white supremacy. Now they meet again.
This is a story of a war.

There’s some comics that entertain and then there’s some that make you think. Those really amazing comics are the ones that do both and Days of Hate #1 falls into that category. In a future America where a new civil war has taken place and racism and terror is rampant, we’re introduced to two individuals who are fighting against a local racist group and another whose heart was broken due to radicalism. It’s two stories so far apart yet intertwined due to the state of the world.

Writer Ales Kot has created a world that’s in the future but one that feels like it could be tomorrow. By not placing the story in today, it creates a slight disconnect and in some ways scarier as this what may be. Right away Kot makes it clear this is the path we’re going down and through that we’re able to connect to the story through the fear Kot may be right.

The art by Danijel Zezelj enhanced by colors of Jordie Bellaire and letters of Aidtya Bidikar adds to the mood and setting. There’s a grittiness about it all that adds to the unsettling nature of the world and story. The art style creates a dystopian feel about it all without making it overt. The story also relies heavily on the small details. A swastika, evidence from a crime, the details on a character. All of that adds together to add depth to every character and the story as a whole.

Kot and the team are delivering a story that’s exactly what’s so powerful about entertainment. We read a story whose layers have a deeper meaning and in this case it’s a warning of where we may be going. Some of the best entertainment not only entertains but also acts as a metaphor for the world and this delivers exactly that and then some.
