The Valiant series Divinity has always held a lot of promise in the scope of it’s concept, but in third issue of the four part miniseries, the book delivers in a way that is both unexpected and excellent. In it, the Unity squad attempts to sustain Divinity before they learn the full extent of his power and their time lines collapse onto themselves in a parallel dimension. It’s almost perfect in the way it juggles a duel narrative of the Unity squad lost in the time stream, Divinity’s personal story & the idea of seeing time, existence and history in a way that is all at once and all encompassing. The results are mind bending and you are left with what is possibly some of Kindt’s best writing of the last year and one of the most interesting superhero comics this side of Multiversity. Artist Trervor Harisine nails the big moments here in his illustration and layout work, capturing the perspective of the Unity squad as they fall into divergent timeline and the expansion of Divinity as a character with the outer space moments being especially vibrant and transcending. Comics are inundated with cosmic stories but Harisine makes this feel awe inspiring in a way that is singular to Divinity alone. I don’t know what the plans are for Divinity after this initial series ends but Valiant, Kindt & Harisine have created something extraordinary that has almost infinite potential in story possibilities for the already rich Valiant universe. That’s because as great as the publisher has been, as great as writer Kindt is, as great as they’ve been together, I can say without a doubt that Divinity is the best thing Valiant has produced since it’s relaunch, it’s a smart, ambitious, refreshing and fascinating addition the publisher’s line of books and this issue is the best one yet.
