The world runs red!
Abram Adams' former teammate ¬- the long-lost cosmonaut Myshka - has returned from deep space...and, seemingly overnight, the former Soviet Union has taken charge as the globe's preeminent economic and military force. As the Western world grapples with the ensuing chaos and confusion of Russia's rapid return to power, Divinity and Ninjak attempt to marshal resistance against an empire enabled by the god-like will of one of its own true believers. But nothing escapes the sight of the super-powered gods that now walk among us...and our fate will be forever decided when Myshka targets Divinity for control of our world's more

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jun 22, 2016

    The ending of the book was quite amazing, showing a winner to the argument. With the haunting look of Abram whithering away to the strong background and cinematic flair, Hairsine, Winn and Baron have given us an artistic tour de force. The power of each panel is like a huge, crowd-pleasing summer blockbuster that just will keep readers glued and wanting more. Kindt's writing is multi-layered, talking about decisions in life and how they can affect the world around you. Kindt also crafts this issue to not only learn some lessons, but also build upon the new mythology that Divinity is creating with these characters. There are clearly consequences that we have not see yet, but it does make people very curious as to what they are. The book is a wonderful example of the best of sequential art and exquisite writing to create a work that can very well stand for decades to come. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Kenny Coburn Jun 23, 2016

    DIVINITY II is a book with a simple idea that has been tried over and over before. What if the Soviet Union had won? But this book is presented in such a unique and interesting way that it easily separates itself from any other story with a similar premise. The time travel elements along with the god-like powers of the Divinities creates a book that is full of unique moments and intriguing themes. Along with the stellar artwork, DIVINITY II is a must-read comic book. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 22, 2016

    Divinity II #3 is the most powerful issue of both volumes of Divinity. It feels like everything was leading to this moment where we not only can address what can go wrong when these powers are abused, but what happens when there is a full understanding of what these powers allow on a human level. For something so out of this world, Divinity is as down to Earth as they come and that pulls you in more than you could imagine. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nick Nafpliotis Jun 22, 2016

    Writing a time travel tale is hard. Writing a book in which the two main characters are virtually omnipotent is arguably even harder. Kindt took both and crafted Divinity II #3 into one hell of a good issue. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Elliott Cole Jun 20, 2016

    Divinity II #3 is the tipping point of the sequel series, in which it finally lives up to the potential of the original series. The creative team is firing on all cylinders and should be expected to deliver going into the final issue, and beyond into the already announced Divinity III. This reviewer would recommend Divinity to fans of Valiant and newcomers alike. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Amani Cooper Jun 23, 2016

    Trevor Hairsine's art is like a photo being digitally transformed into a cartoon. Ryan Winn's inks and David Baron's colors complete the image. I think these three are the only ones that can make rotting flesh look good. I know its not supposed to look good, but I don't need Zombie Divinity right now. It would be a bit distracting. I've said this before, but I don't like a lot of inks in a comic. However, Hairsine and Winn can tie it all together in a visually pleasing way. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Jun 22, 2016

    Divinity has been such an interesting book thus far. I am speaking of both mini series right now. It really has been a great science fiction story so far. I am confused but it's a good confused, I can't wait to read the last issue then go back and read the series as one whole story. Read Full Review

    I think this is for people interested in more adult-like topics, fans of the Preacher could dig this, and readers that are looking for a story more graphic and with strong themes should enjoy it. Read Full Review
