It takes us to a world where the Soviet Union - affected by the godlike forces unleashed in previous Divinity mini-series - has taken virtual control of the Earth.
But that doesn't mean an end to conflict. Luckily, when terrible forces attack, the Motherland has a powerful defender - Aric, the former X-O Manowar.
The issue brings us up to speed on his standing in this new world - and pits him against a particularly nasty opponent (one with its roots in the brutal history of Russia).
It's a strong story by Joe Harris and powerful art by Cafu, and certainly an unusual change of pace for Valiant's lineup (however temporary the changes may be).
It's a promising start to the series!
