Retailer Advisory: Valiant’s DIVINITY II #1 Sells Out, Returns with Second Printing on May 25th!

DIVINITY2_001_COVER_SECOND-PRINTING_DJURDJEVICPlus: Your First Look Inside DIVINITY II #2 – In Stores the Same Day!

After 11 sold-out printings in 2015, the next chapter of Valiant’s acclaimed sci-fi saga has arrived…and it’s already on track to become Valiant’s next smash hit!

Valiant is proud to announce that DIVINITY II #1 (of 4) – the long-awaited VALIANT PRESTIGE limited series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D., Dept. H), Valiant-exclusive superstar Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), explosive inker Ryan Winn (X-O MANOWAR), and acclaimed colorist David Baron (BLOODSHOT REBORN, The Authority) – has sold out at the distributor level and will return on May 25th with the DIVINITY II #1 (of 4) SECOND PRINTING VARIANT!

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 three cosmonauts farther into space than anyone has gone before or since. Handpicked orphans with no connections to Earth, trained as devout Communists, and restricted from having families, they became lost in the stars and encountered something unknown… Something that changed them.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, Abram Adams was the first to return, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. But, even with seemingly limitless power at his fingertips, he is concerned only with the secret love he hid away from his superiors and the unborn child he never had a chance to meet.

Now, Myshka, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth…but, unlike Abram, she had no secret family. Unlike Abram, she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory.

Earth is about to meet a new god. And she’s a Communist. How long can it be before the nations of Earth bend before DIVINITY?

Just a month after the arrival of long-lost cosmonaut Myshka, the former Soviet Union has made an impossible push to become the world’s preeminent superpower. But how? Ninjak has a theory, but it will require going undercover across enemy lines…and maybe some help from Myshka’s old comrade, Abram Adams – the god-like being known as Divinity! But can the motives of a deity among men ever truly be known…and will the return of Divinity’s former teammate rekindle his old allegiances?

Featuring covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic (FAITH), Tom Muller (Wolf), Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), Tula Lotay (Supreme: Blue Rose) and Adam Gorham (DEAD DROP), the sold-out science fiction epic of the year continues here as Kindt, Hairsine, Winn, and Baron realign the balance of global power…and push the boundaries of a mind-bending new frontier for the forces of the Valiant Universe, only in DIVINITY II #2 (of 4)!
