At this point, you already know the deal with Valiant's big Stalinverse event, but on the off chance that you've forgotten, here's the short version: A shift in history is causing the Valiant universe to be overwritten by an alternate timeline where the Soviet Union has taken over the world, complete with their own versions of Valiant's greatest heroes to keep any would-be revolutionaries in line.

And that, of course, includes the nanite-enhanced Komandar Bloodshot, who's being sent in to quell an insurgency in America, forcing the resistance to ask the question of how exactly do you fight Bloodshot? And the answer, of course, is that you make a Bloodshot of your own. Check out the preview below --- including the first piece of the origin for new Valiant character Red Legend.

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!
