    The art was absolutely fantastic as it shows what happens when a mortal man has a power of a god and the consequences of those actions. This was a great issue, full of stunning visuals and thought provoking commentary on life. A triumph by Valiant once again. Read Full Review

    Be sure to have tissues handy when reading the final chapter of Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine's Divinity, as this creative team delivers an emotionally affecting issue that also raises moral questions relevant in today's world. Read Full Review

    The extra pages and insight from writer Kindt at the end of the story only enhance the overall experience of the entire miniseries. We are assured that there is more Divinity to come this year which is magnificent news. I'm eager to see how this mighty character will interact with the other power players touring around the Valiant Universe. This series established something new, potent and potentially dangerous into their world. I can't wait to see where they take him next. Read Full Review

    “Divinity” #4 is a great ending that does just enough to open the door for more while still completing this story. This has been the perfect entry point to the Valiant universe and thanks to Kindt's layered writing, it's one of the very best superhero stories this year. Read Full Review

    Divinity #4is a relatively underwhelming conclusion in comparison to how excellent this series has been since the first issue. It's an enjoyable issue that sheds even more light on Abram's character and brings the current situation to a close. However, more light isn't shed on the origin or nature of Abram's powers, and at times it's perplexing except the fact that some answers are being delayed until next series. Despite hoping for the series to live up to its bold, cosmic potential only to choose to become a caged bird, I still recommend it as an overall gripping, and exciting story. And Abram is a character I can't wait to see again. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis May 26, 2015

    As far as Divinity himself, this issue made him seem by far the most human, even compared to how he was before leaving for outer space. The existential crisis he has through the story initially felt very by the 'sci-fi emotion scene by-the-numbers', but Kindt backs it all up with a powerful, soul crushing coda. It was more than enough to ensure that I will definitely be back for Divinity's next appearance. Read Full Review

    If Kindt was trying to relay some kind of message, to make some kind of point about superheroes or divine power or religion, then it definitely went over my head. This comic is written like any other superhero comic, not like the next Sandman or anything of that nature. But hey, I had a good time, and maybe I'll come back for Divinity II"if I can remember.

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet May 28, 2015

    Divinity, overall, was magnificent. The first three issues felt new, fresh and introduced a real player into the VU, but the fourth proved to be a bit of an anchor that dragged the series back from what, arguably, could have been better than The Valiant, which still holds the title of best mini-series (or event, if you want to pull it into that realm) in recent memory, from any publisher.

    Comic Bastards - Andr Habet May 27, 2015

    The art team does some astonishing work this issue on both the personal and epic scale. Watching Divinity respond to his deceased wife's plea to return to death hurts in the right way. Similarly, the panels of Divinity's lush planetoid crashing to the desert floor worked really well to wrap up Divinity's initial tale as a messiah figure. In his absence, paradise immediately falls apart, and it'll be interesting to see whether his return will result in another attempt at harmony, or a change of philosophy involving all out death and destruction.
