    Divinity II #4 was a great end to another chapter of Divinity. There is no other book worthy of recommendation as Divinity is. You care about the story, the characters, the world built through the artwork. You couldn't imagine any other way to have given the first story a sequel than how things played out here. Not to mention the subtle things which will lead into Divinity III. Probably what will be the most anticipated of the new books announced for Valiant's next wave of books. Read Full Review

    Divinity II #4 is very well written, thought-provoking story that does a phenomenal job of closing this second chapter of Divinity. It sets the stage for what is to come, and does so in such a way that readers and fans look forward to the release of Divinity III later this year. Read Full Review

    I may not have wanted a sequel to Divinity, but I'm sure glad that I got one. This is a book that only gets better with each read through. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Tyler Counsellor Jul 28, 2016

    It's an ominous reveal, coupled by the apparent return of Kazmir. In Divinity II #3, Abram claimed that Myshka would be unable to seriously alter history like she tried, because they were essential just ghosts, "slamming door and blowing out candles" but this, this is a real change. The scene with the vendor was shown in a previous issue, and did not play out as it does here. Abram clearly, truly, altered history. In fact, he might not be the only one doing so. Neville's final scene, just before the altered past scene with Myshka, shows him pick up a coin to get a drink " a coin with Cyrillic writing. Not to mention the red star on the closed laptop. This seems to indicate someone, possibly Kazmir, is already trying to change history again. Read Full Review

    Divinity II #4 is a satisfying conclusion to the series providing solid character development that makes the Divinity characters more intriguing while remaining exciting. The action gets intense but the real entertainment value is in the subtle ways Abram and Myshka can and do influence each other expressed in Matt Kindt's use of a Russian classic. I'm a Divinity fan so I'm always looking for more, however, the conclusion to this series is also a great starting point for the next. And I can't wait. Read Full Review

    Divnity II #4 shows that in the right hands, comics can do it all. They can, in equal parts, provide thrilling action and heady narrative ideas while also engage in emotional storytelling. Valiant Entertainment has had a great many wins under their belt as of late but Divinity II stands above them all with grace, energy and heart. Read Full Review

    Divinity II ultimately succeeds in bringing a satisfying end to story but also leaving plenty of room open for future stories. Valiant has already announced Divinity III for December, 2016. These characters are now fully established members of the Valiant universe and they will have much to say going forward. That is good news for us all. Read Full Review

    This time, the commentary in the final pages was from the artist, Trevor Hairsine, again with the creation process of some pages showing pencils, inks and finally the colors. It wasn't until then that I realized the real effort it was needed to reflect the script. Divinity II #4 was a solid read and I hope for more to come. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Jul 28, 2016

    I had high hopes for this series, and while I enjoyed the story, I feel like there could have been more to it. The setting is great, the characters are great and hopefully when we get Divinity III we get more. It was good but ended a little flat for my tastes. This could all just be leading to something bigger so I will wait and see. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Jul 27, 2016

    On the positive side of things, the story's coda was incredibly chilling. It made me want to get Divinity III in my hands immediately. Combine that with Hairsine's wonderful art, and you've still got a pretty good finale. It might not have been as brilliant as the penultimate chapter, but the series has a whole has proven that the Divinity series–and this creative team–can be counted on for thrilling and intelligent science fiction storytelling.
