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?
The next must-read series to be released in the “Valiant Prestige” format, each issue of DIVINITYcomes complete with deluxe matte-laminate card stock covers, custom-designed end sheets, and exclusive back matter featuring never-before-seen notes and artwork by Matt Kindt – all with no advertisements and a standard $3.99 cover price!
