The Valiant Universe will be completely reshaped this December into the Stalinverse!
Along with the release of Divinity III: Stalinverse this December, Valiant will also be rolling out four essential specials showcasing the worldwide Communist regime.
The first of those specials will be DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1. On December 28th, out of the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE, join New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (BLOODSHOT REBORN, Death of X) and comics superstar Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) as they present a blood-curdling examination of the Stalinverse’s ultimate state-sponsored assassin: the merciless KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT!
He’s put down protests, led the purge of political undesirables, and executed dozens of traitors to the Soviet super-state. His name is KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT…and his existence is a hushed whisper among the terrified populace of the 21st century’s global Soviet Union. But just who is this unrelenting enforcer of state superiority… and what is the shocking truth about his power, his allegiances, and his true identity?
“This isn’t an Elseworlds story. This happens in the Valiant Universe. This is the Valiant Universe. How do we wake up one day and see Stalin portrayed as a hero instead of a mass murderer?,” Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons told Newsarama. “Bloodshot is an unstoppable force. He’s imbued with millions of nanites that allow him to heal from any wound, change shapes, interact with technology — and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. A weapon like this — who’s built and controlled by a communist regime that’s killed tens of millions of civilians — is a frightening prospect.”
On December 28th, Valiant’s first reality-shattering event explodes outward with a gut-wrenching tale of power, sacrifice, and authority as Jeff Lemire and Clayton Crain take Valiant’s bloodstained icon to his most punishing depths yet! Don’t miss the shocking twists and turmoil that await in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1 – featuring an iron-clad line of covers from Clayton Crain (Carnage), Ryan Bodenheim (The Dying & The Dead), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE), and Kano (Daredevil).
Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.
Stay tuned as the Stalinverse spreads with more top-secret DIVINITY III one-shots detailing the redacted history of the Soviet Union’s most notorious patriots, agitators, and outcasts in January and beyond!
