As an early Christmas present, Valiant Entertainment has released previews for their books dropping next week. Those titles include Divinity III: Komandar Bloodshot #1, Savage #2 and Generation Zero #5. For me, I am eagerly awaiting the chance to read Komandar Bloodshot and Savage. Bloodshot ties directly into Valiant’s Stalinverse, which kicked off with this week’s Divinity III and puts the Valiant Universe in a very Communist driven reality. Savage #2 is the next chapter in the dino-centric book. Check out the previews below!

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!

Nature conquers all!
Marooned in an unforgiving prehistoric landscape, high society’s most privileged celebrity family is fighting tooth and claw – literally – for survival. 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 (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!
