For thousands of years, the Eternal Warrior has stood under the grindstone of history, and held it back. But with so little hope for the child whose narrow shoulders must bear the weight of his people’s future, will this be the battle that finally forces surrender upon the Eternal Warrior?

[VALIANT NEXT TUESDAY] First Look: DIVINITY #1 Returns to Earth with Matt Kindt & Trevor Hairsine in February!

Divinity AValiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY #1 (of 4) – the new, prestige format VALIANT NEXT limited series from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (THE VALIANTMind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis)! On February 11th, don’t miss the first appearance of Valiant’s first major new character as DIVINITY descends on planet Earth!

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? Find out here as Valiant superstars Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine deliver a shocking vision of 21st century science fiction in DIVINITY #1 (of 4) – the next epic series from the VALIANT NEXT initiative in stores February 11th!

First Look: Secret-ish Wars! A Limited Number of Infinite Earths! VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY #1!

VSQW_001_COVER_ZDARSKYReality hopping, multiple Woodys, and the finest superheroes that North Korea has to offer? We hate to say it, but the multiverse is doomed – and it’s all because of VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY #1!

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY #1 – an overloaded 40-page rampage through the infinite Woody-Verse from writers Tim Siedell (Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows) and James Asmus (Quantum and Woody) with art by rising stars Pere Pérez (Archer & Armstrong) and Brian Level (Lazarus)! On December 3rd, if you thought one Woody was too much…you were probably right!

When an asteroid with a fifty-fifty chance of hitting Earth is spotted hurtling toward the planet, the unlikely super-team of Quantum and Woody are drafted onto the international team of specialists tasked with stopping it! But when the duo inadvertently cause a training exercise to go horribly wrong, they manage to doom the entire planet along with the only team capable of saving it. With few options and less time, Woody decides to ditch our world and escape into another through a secret space-time rift created by his arch-nemesis – old timey clone-Frankenstein-robot Thomas Edison! (No…you shouldn’t ask.) Our Woody’s betrayal, however, leaves the door to our dimension open to THEIR counter-Woody and his own counter-asteroid…leaving two worlds in the balance as two Woodys cut a reckless rampage through the multiverse!

Featuring covers by Eisner Award winner Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals) and acclaimed artist Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool) – plus a partially completed “Draw Your Own” Blank cover by Pere Pérez (Harbinger Wars) – Quantum and Woody begin their first perilous voyage into the Woody-Verse on December 3rd in VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY #1 by Tim Siedell, James Asmus, Pere Pérez, and Brian Level!

And the Harvey Award-nominated (mis)adventures of the world’s worst superhero continue on January 28th in QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of a dastardly new limited series from James Asmus and Eisner Award-winning artist Steve Lieber (Superior Foes of Spider-Man)! They came. They saw. They pissed off a whole lotta folks. And, soon, a new team of mystery vigilantes will have their revenge – only in QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE #1 (of 4)!

The Eternal Warrior…Gilad Anni-Padda, the Earth’s Fist and Steel…is forever charged with guarding the Geomancer and securing the Earth’s safety. After completing another brutal mission, the Earth’s undying guardian is approached with a cryptic task: fi nd and save a baby — in whose hands might rest the fate of an entire people. But the Eternal Warrior is no nursemaid…and, to complicate matters, a thousand Magyar invaders want the baby dead. At the edge of civilization, can history’s most expert killer keep one precious life alive?
