Media Release — Valiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the new prestige format VALIANT NEXT limited series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (RAI, Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (ETERNAL WARRIOR, X-Men: Deadly Genesis). On February 11th, don’t miss the beginning of an astonishing new era as the being called DIVINITY makes his landmark first appearance…and changes the world in his wake.
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. Now the rest of the world’s powers must decide for themselves – will the enigmatic DIVINITY offer his hand in friendship or will Earth’s heroes find themselves helpless against the wrath of the divine?
Find out on February 11th as DIVINITY #1 (of 4) presents the coming of the being that will reshape the Valiant Universe! From the minds of all-star creators Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine, discover why Valiant is the premier storytelling company in comics today with all-new vision of 21st century science fiction unlike anything else on the shelf, only in DIVINITY #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (Thor), Tom Muller (Zero), Trevor Hairsine (Captain America), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT).
