Valiant have announced that a jumping on point issue, Divinity #0, will be arriving on August 16th ahead of the new series Eternity, which also features Abram Adams, in October.
Written by Matt Kindt (X-O Manowar, Dept. H) and illustrated by Renato Guedes (Bloodshot Reborn, Wolverine), this zero issue actually takes the form of an introduction to the Valiant Universe as told through the eyes of the all-powerful Divinity.
Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons describes this issue as “a guided tour of what makes Valiant tick in 2017, and it could very well be one of the most important jumping-on points we’ve produced to date.”
When we catch up with Divinity, this lost Russian cosmonaut newly arrived on Earth with god-like powers has successfully restored the world to order after the reality-altering event known as the Stalinverse. He has to take stock of the current reality to make sure things really have been restored, so in taking account of the Valiant Universe, we get an insider view of his perspective on the heroes, villains, and gods that he encounters. Because of this approach, this zero issue will contain “guest stars” like Bloodshot, Faith, Ninjak, X-O Manowar and more.
Divinity #0 will feature covers by Juan Jose Ryp, Ibrahim Moustafa, Clayton Henry, Peter Bagge, and Kano:
Look out for an excellent introduction to the Valiant Universe in Divinity #0 this August 26th, and also get ready for Valiant’s new series Eternity, by Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine, arriving in its first issue in October 2017.
