    Divinity III is the real freakin' deal.Valiant is the real freakin' deal. Matt Kindt is" okay, well you get the picture here. This is only issue two, and the Divinity mini-series is only eight issues deep so far, and he's a brand new character in the Valiant Universe, so there is absolutely no excuse not to be picking this up and diving in. Start here, start at the beginning, whatever works for you. Just start; you won't be sorry. Read Full Review

    Kindt and Hairsine are crafting something special with each of the Divinity mini series, and with Stalinverse, the stakes couldnt be higher. This issue furthers the story along, introducing key players like Harada and the big bad of the series, and does so masterfully. I have yet to read an issue of Divinity that I didnt like: in fact, Stalinverse is on track to becoming my favorite of the Divinity library thus far. I cant recommend this series enough: this series, as well as the multiple one shots tied directly to the Stalinverse. If you havent given Valiant a shot yet, this is the series that should draw you in, comrade. Read Full Review

    Divinity III Stalinverse #2 is an excellent follow-up issue that brings together all the elements in the Stalinverse. Ninjak's battle with Bloodshot sets the stage for crucial events to occur. Harada's inclusion as well as the introduction of Divinity's army adds more depth to the story. Despite the same experience giving them all powers, I really enjoy how all 3 original companions use their abilities in drastically different ways. I can't wait to see more. Read Full Review

    Divinity III: Stalinverse #2is another proving point thatStalinverseis going to be the best storyline of theDivinity series. It's hit it's halfway point and shows no sign of slowing down as Ninjak gears up to take down the world's Communist rulers. If you haven't checked this title out yet, you are seriously doing yourself a serious disservice! Read Full Review

    The depth of this series is genuinely quite fantastic. Utilising characters and plot elements that have clearly been slowly put in place with precision by Valiant over the past few years. Even just their placing of Divinity and Myshka shows the mindfulness of their individual stories. Whilst the comic company can boast about their superhero comics, this is a different kind of beast. It's a political parable, it's a vision and it's downright brilliant. Their aren't that many flashy costumes in the series, everything looks practical and brutal. It's fair to say thatStalinverse #2 is part of something bigger. It's definitely a game changer. It raises the bar for storytelling and propelling characters in a unique manner. Should you be reading Divinity III: Stalinverse? Without a doubt. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jan 30, 2017

    . Kindt constructs a tale about a coming war, ideologies, the passion and will to fight for the right thing and said ideologies while advancing characters at the same time with an ease that comes to people similar to breathing. Hairsine, Winn and Baron continue to bring masterful life to Kindt's scripts with detail, beautiful & kinetic art that jumps out at readers and captivates them from the first panel to the very last.

    Divinity III: Stalinverse #2 may be far from being the perfect comic book, but is does not present many cons, as far as I can see. It's just a matter of really polishing some details here and there in order to have something really special, which I'm sure will happenif things keep going this way. Read Full Review

    Armed with Russian-themed variants of Valiant heroes and a well-researched background, Divinity III continues to show what can happen when event comics have more on their mind then just empty action. Read Full Review
