This coming Wednesday, December 21st on New Comic Book Day (NCBD), Valiant Entertainment has the debut of the long-anticipated DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE! This new miniseries from Valiant veterans Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine looks to usher in 2017 in a big way. Here’s your extended preview of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1.
On December 21st, witness a disturbing new vision of the world as it now stands! One where the Cold War was won long ago and a global Soviet empire now rules the world… Where the Iron Curtain extends across oceans and continents, subsuming freedom and liberty in its wake… And where the Russian communist super-state rules the world not only with an iron fist, but with ultimate power far beyond the comprehension of mortal men.
Featuring DIVINITY’s Abram Adams alongside the first appearances of darkly reimagined versions of X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, HARBINGER RENEGADE’s Peter Stanchek, Ninjak, Shadowman, and several surprise guests, the definitive Valiant epic of 2016 starts here!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…
Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.
“Divinity’s place in the Valiant Universe is about to fundamentally reshape the world as we thought we knew it, and the ramifications of this series will play out for months and years after the final page,” said Valiant CEO and Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Not only is the story fully in continuity, it will leave several major new, key elements and characters in place that will be essential to Valiant’s plans going forward. We’re incredibly excited for readers to finally see all the twists, turns and surprises that DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE has in store!“
