First Look: Hell Comes to New York for DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN AND THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1
Valiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN AND THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1 – the next essential standalone special torn from the pages of Valiant’s hit comics event! On February 8th, join rising star Scott Bryan Wilson (Batman Annual) and blockbuster artist Robert Gill (Wrath of the Eternal Warrior) as they lead the unshakable Shadowman to the front line of America’s last stand against the global Soviet Union! The Statue of Liberty has fallen and the streets of New York are plagued with Russian forces. Now, the only thing separating the United States from complete Soviet rule is the most unlikely soldier of all: Shadowman!
To save the devastated and oppressed island of New York, Jack Boniface might just have to annihilate it first – by leading an army of Deadside-spawned monstrosities onto the streets to fight the Soviets’ super-powered shock troops wherever they stand. But freedom fighters like the one they call Shadowman seldom get the happy ending they deserve…
On February 8th, follow the tragic tale of the Stalinverse’s darkest champion out of the sold-out pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 and into an all-out assault on the Big Apple, only in DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN AND THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1 – featuring covers by Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.), Marco Rudy (Uncanny X-Men), Diego Bernard (Ninjak), Trevor Hairsine (Divinity) and Kano (Daredevil)!
But first: The fight has already begun in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the winter’s major comics event from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (4001 A.D.) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), in stores now!
At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…
Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.
Then: The Stalinverse’s subversive spread continues with the first of four essential one-shots torn directly from the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) as New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Bloodshot Reborn, Death of X) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) re-assign the KGB’s deadliest covert operative from Mother Russia to the mountains of Colorado in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1 – on sale now!

But in letting these two subversive criminal offenders into its walls, has this oppressive Gulag condemned Archer and Armstrong…or itself?
