Retailer Advisory: DIVINITY #1 Fourth Printing to Be Allocated, Record-Setting Fifth Printing to Arrive in June!

DIVINITY_001_COVER_FIFTH-PRINTINGRetailers be advised: following an unprecedented level of reorder activity, orders of the DIVINITY #1 (of 4) FOURTH PRINTING – due to arrive in stores on May 27th alongside of DIVINITY #4 (of 4) – will be allocated.

To meet demand, the sold-out first issue of the hit new series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (THE VALIANT, NINJAK) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis) is heading back to press and will return on June 17th with the DIVINITY #1 (of 4) FIFTH PRINTING.

DIVINITY is a truly special book – one that fans will be not only debating for years to come, but that has also defied all expectations both inside Valiant and across the industry,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “No one would have predicted that demand for DIVINITY would result in multiple allocations, or that it would become the first Valiant title to warrant a record-setting fifth printing.”

“But as DIVINITY‘s first prestige format mini-series comes to an end next week, we’re even more excited for what comes next. This is a character that will continue to reshape the course of the Valiant Universe in the months and years to come. Over the course of the summer, you’ll feel his presence in BOOK OF DEATH, he’ll become a major force facing off against Toyo Harada in Joshua Dysart’s IMPERIUM, and, soon, we’ll able to reveal the full extent of what the future holds for DIVINITY. Rest assured, Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine haven’t finished blowing our minds just yet.”

Now, on the heels of yet another sold-out reprinting, find out why DIVINITY is the pivotal first appearance of Valiant’s all-new, all-powerful force that fans and retailers simply can’t keep on shelves!

“High concept sci-fi executed perfectly, Divinity is one of the most exciting, ambitious titles Valiant has published.” – Wired

“Matt Kindt’s new creation is a giant leap forward for Valiant…[with] a debut that marks a creative high point for the publisher.” – The Onion/AV Club

“A true and worthwhile expansion of Valiant’s footprint, both in the publishing world and the fictional world contained within it.” – Comic Book Resources

“DIVINITY #1 pushes the scope of Valiant ever further… A beautifully designed introduction and one that plays to all of Kindt’s strengths as a writer.” – ComicBook.com

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?

On June 17th, don’t miss you chance to discover the visionary superhero epic of 2015 with the DIVINITY #1 (of 4) FIFTH PRINTING!

Then Divinity’s journey continues on August 5th as he steps into the pages of IMPERIUM #7 by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart (HARBINGER, HARBINGER WARS) and fan favorite artist Scot Eaton (Doomwar)! 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.
