One of the most satisfying elements of the Valiant revival is how naturally Matt Kindt has settled into their larger universe. While he had his successes with work for hire projects at The Big Two (Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E. or Marvel Knights Spider-Man), he never seemed to find his place in the companies in the same manner indie creators like Kieron Gillen or Jonathan Hickman had before him. Valiant, though, has proven much more receptive to his talents allowing Kindt to place his own distinct stamp on properties such as Ninjak. His Divinity mini-series read like a creator-owned book which happened to take place in a larger shared universe. Since then, readers have watched the character more fully integrated into Valiant, particularly having a major presence in an arc of Imperium. On Wednesday, Valiant launched a sequel to last year’s mini-series, which continues the strong storytelling of the original.
