I’m not sure how many of you are reading Valiant each week, but it should be on your radar. The VALIANT NEXT expansion has been really solid.

Last week we saw the impressive debut of IMPERIUM, and this week they release yet another new title: DIVINITY. IMPERIUM is a complete trip, there’s god-like beings, Logan’s Run style housing, references to the war on terror, future Ghandi, and a snarky robot…it’s really trippy, but very interesting. I’m not sure how it ties into the Valiant universe yet…guess I’ll just have to continue to read, huh.

DIVINITY comes from the big brain of Matt Kindt (The Valiant, Mind MGMT) and it’s doozy. Space, commies, time travel, other galaxies…wheeewww. Unlike IMPERIUM, DIVINITY will not be an ongoing series. Art duties fall to Trevor Hairsine (XMen, Captain America) and knocks ’em out.

So if you’re in the market for a new title, give some some love and some cash to one of the superb new titles from Valiant.

From New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (THE VALIANT, Mind MGMT) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis) comes a shocking new vision of science fiction in an all-new prestige format limited series.

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?
