DIVINITY #1-4 (Matt Kindt / Trevor Hairsine)

Comme chaque année, Valiant Entertainment dévoile les nouveaux titres qui feront leur apparition dans le catalogue de l’éditeur en 2015:

En février, le scénariste Matt Kindt et le dessinateur Trevor Hairsine lanceront la mini-série originale Divinity (comprendre, qui n’est pas une relance d’une ancienne propriété Valiant). Ils raconteront le retour sur Terre du premier astronaute soviétique envoyé dans l’espace dans le plus grand secret pendant la Guerre Froide et oublié depuis.

Précédé par The Valiant et Ivan, Timewalker, cette mini-série en quatre chapitres sera suivie le même mois par Imperium, puis par Ninjak en mars et Bloodshot Reborn en avril.

Written by MATT KINDT

At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union – determined to win the Space Race at any cost – green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent a man farther into the cosmos than anyone has gone before or since. Lost in the stars, he encountered something unknown. Something that…changed him.

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, he has suddenly returned, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity -– one who turned the scorched desert into a lush oasis. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. Earth is about to meet a new god. And he’s a communist.

How long can it be before the first confrontation between mankind and DIVINITY begins?

From New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine comes a shocking new vision of 21st century science fiction in an all-new prestige format limited series. [/quote]

[quote=“Matt Kindt”]It really all started with a random phone call I got from my editor [Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons]. He called up and just said – “I’ve got an idea: Divinity.” Of course I laughed… and waited for the rest of the idea… which never came. He just had an idea for this title for a story, which is always a fun kind of way to come up with something. Anyway, I laughed politely and then moved on.

But that night I started thinking about it – and then just got a fully formed idea for what the story could be to fit that title. So in a way it just started as a one-word writing prompt.

It originally started as a story arc idea I had for “Unity.” I try to block out a year’s worth of story at a time so I can plant seeds for things that happen later into the early issues. When I turned in the outlines for the “Divinity” storyline everyone in the office loved it so much they wanted to break it off into its own thing.[/quote]


Pas mal. Je prendrais.
