The sci-fi saga of 2015 continues - from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (RAI) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis)!

A being with the power of a god roams free in the Australian Outback, bringing life to the barren wasteland and making him a hero to natives who live there and the visitors that have sought him out. But can the global superpowers of Earth rely on this long-lost cosmonaut not to abuse his seemingly limitless power? The entity called DIVINITY will put that trust to the test when he discovers what became of the life he left behind...and the family he once knew...

    Outright Geekery - Henry Starling Apr 19, 2015

    This series is Valiant's battle cry. Almost mirroring, to me at least, what the company had to go through just to emerge today and a formidable opponent to the Big 2. I, for one, feel I'm in the right corner in this title bout. Read Full Review

    Buccaneer Book Reviews - Cap'n Aldous B. Adder Apr 29, 2015

    Cannot wait for the final issue to get here, regardless of my reservations about it being too short. Thus far neither this writer nor this publisher have given me reason to doubt their skills and their intent with their comics and so I'm betting it's going to be fantastic! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Adam Cadmon Apr 19, 2015

    Three issues into this four-part miniseries and I see that he's taking this book in a philosophical direction that's not usually attempted, let alone achieved. Where a great many writers tend toward nihilism, or it's less bleak cousin relativism, this story seems to push a theme of hope. That's not to say that the book isn't without its moments of dread, instances where the stark realization that existence may not have any redeeming value come to the fore. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 22, 2015

    Divinity #3 delivers on a powerful roller-coaster of emotions for a guy who really has gotten a lot more than he bargained for. There is a price for power and discovery and no person is an exception to that as we see from this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet Apr 22, 2015

    If I have any complaints with this issue it's the means by which Ninjak wakes himself and the other members from the false reality Divinity drops them into. The repetition of concentrating on your breath, and the ease of executing the technique made it a pretty hokey concept I couldn't get entirely behind. I did like how those pages were framed through captions from Ninjak's journal, doing a great job of making sense for me why this ninja can hold his own on a team comprised of powerhouse figures. The final page confused the heck out of me in the best of ways, and I'm confident Kindt has much more to unleash in Divinity's conclusion. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Apr 22, 2015

    Divinityis earth shattering;it's something that will blow minds and change perceptions both literally and figuratively and it's 100% in the right creative hands. Maybe it's the sheer immensityof this character that makes it feel like there should be more, like maybe we need to spend more time with him, but it still works. A book like this might be one that you need to read multiple times, but it's a book you're going towant to read and will certainly enjoy every single time that you read it. Kindt is a visionary, andd this artistic team are absolutely top-notch;here is literally nothing else you can ask for in a comic. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Apr 21, 2015

    What I don't love is the lens through which Divinity's potential threat is being viewed. Unity might be a really cool team/title on its own, but it just doesn't feel right here. It's not enough to make this a bad issue by any stretch, but it definitely keeps it from being great (It's still pretty damn good, though). Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 25, 2015

    I feared from the beginning that Divinity would be a bit over my head. I have a pretty solid opinion of myself, and I know I'm not the best when it comes to picking up on subtext or wild ideas. But I want to give this book the old college try. It'd be nice to get into Valiant Comics. But after a really good second issue, Divinity loses me again. Read Full Review
