Out of the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE…New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (Death of X) and comics superstar Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) present the first of four essential specials chronicling the history of the Stalinverse's worldwide superhuman regime! 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? Valiant's first reality-shattering event explodes outward as Jeff Lemire & Clayton Crain lead KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT from DIVINITY III…and into a gut-wrenching tale of power, sacrifice, and authority that will take Valiant's blood-stained icon to his most punishing depths yet!

They're in your towns. In your schools. And inside your head… Kris Hathaway, Peter Stanchek, Faith Herbert, and John Torkelson thought they could go underground. They thought they could get their old lives back. They were wrong. As four psionically powered "psiots" that can defy the laws of physics with a thought alone, this extraordinarily dangerous team of renegades won't be able to escape the fight that society has brought to their door. As a violent, new superpower movement spreads across the suburbs, America's only hope will be the teenagers it wished it could forget. Chaos is coming home as Harvey Award nominee Rafer Roberts (A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and superstar artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, Wolverine) continue the most subversive, most fearless new superhero series of the fall!

With no shelter, no weapons and no escape, the Savage family is about to come face to face with the cruelest laws of nature – in the form of the lethal dinosaurs that somehow stalk the impossibly ancient island that has become their home. Once they lose everything – and each other – what part of them will endure? Where will the man inside each of them end…and the animal begin? It's survival of the fiercest as acclaimed writer B. Clay Moore (Aloha, Hawaiian Dick) and blockbuster artists Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS) and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) catapult the fiercest Valiant hero of all time into the bone-breaking comic book debut that will have everyone talking!
