Welcome to the second chapter of Sylloungue. All in all, I hope you can enjoy it, and suggest to me topics to approach regarding the beautiful and cultural world of literature. This week, I have decided to approach Valiant Comics forthcoming releases, which are not entirely underground, yet you might find quite appealing.
Valiant Comics has published previews of Divinity II #1, and Bloodshot Reborn #12, all of which arrive in comic shops this Wednesday.
The much-anticipated follow-up to the 11-time sold-out series that A.V. Club calls the “Best New Superhero of 2015” is here. The acclaimed creative team returns for a perfect new jumping-on point into the expansive sci-fi saga that shook the world!
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 three cosmonauts farther into space than anyone has gone before or since. Handpicked orphans with no connections to Earth, trained as devout Communists, and restricted from having families, they became lost in the stars and encountered something unknown. Something that changed them.
Deep thought lost and erased from the history books, Abram Adams was the first to return, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. But, even with seemingly limitless power at his fingertips, he is concerned only with the secret love he hid away from his superiors and the unborn child he never had a chance to meet.
Now, Myshka, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth; however, opposited to Abram she had no secret family. Unlike Abram, she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory.
Earth is about to meet a new God. And she is a Communist. How long can it be before the nations of Earth bend before Divinity?
This is kind of interesting as well, as two separate Valiant Comics coming out this week in which both Ninjak appears, yet neither of them are the main Ninjak title. I am referring to both issues of Bloodshot Reburn and X-O Manowar of course, which you can read further ahead.
Motivated by the latest in a never-ending barrage of tragedies, Bloodshot is teaming with his old friend and ally, Ninjak, to take down the Shadowmen and G.A.T.E.’s X-O Manowar armor-drones. But Bloodshot’s not the technologically advanced warrior he once was. Can he overcome the onslaught of the future’s bleeding-edge “goo-tech” defenses? And just who is the Man in the Tower?
New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men) and artist extraordinaire Lewis LaRosa (The Punisher) redefine the future of the Valiant Universe with the next armor-piercing instalment of “The Analog Man.”
X-O Manowar and Ninjak have uncovered a Vine terrorist network that goes farther up the rings of power than they could have ever expected – and revealing its secrets may have just put everyone Aric holds dear in grave danger! Even Valiant’s two most powerful heroes might not be able to stop what’s coming next…and the countdown is about to begin!
The all-star creators behind Valiant’s blockbuster Book Of Death event, New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and red-hot artist Robert Gill, present the most dire hour ever in the life of X-O Manowar!
