Just finished this mini-series up last night and came away loving it.
I loved the time manipulation and the way it was shown artisically (that was truly a great thing). I also just really love the look of this guy. This "Space Suit" with the unnecessary tubes going from one part of the suit to another  Cheesy. I know it makes no sense, but it looks cool as hell. Even more so when you see it with the different colored ones, which was another good reveal that he wasn't alone (And I am crossing my fingers on those two other Cosmonauts that sank into oblivion ... I hope we have not seen the last of them. This could be an Avengers "Michael" story all over again, but with more "Michaels")
 Cheesy

Super glad this title is returning for another 4 issue run. I do hope it will be the same team. I think what makes this book look so good is the art team on this book. From pencils, to inks and colors, top notch looking stuff. (Okay, yes, that was a stupid statement. Of course it is the "art team" that makes this book look so good. Who the hell else would it be?
"The editor really wowed me on this book the way she made everything look so fascinating"

Moron
 Cheesy

Anyway ...

Loved this mini in the full telling. So very cool, and I love the trippy time travel/space travel to the unknown. I love a being/person not knowing the full world they return to, and unlimited power that still makes them powerless.

Have to reread this in one sitting, as I had a hard time truly knowing when future-Divinity was talking, or the man from the past. I feel there is more to know about him by how he viewed what was occurring.

And I can't wait to see Divinity II!!!!

Glad to hear this is good.  I'm planning on picking it up when it comes out in TPB.

Now that is SPOOKY.  It is LITERALLY the next book I'm reading today.  I made it through my August floppies this week and then read my Men of Wrath TPB (great Jason Aaron book by the way) and then the latest Invincible TPB.  I'm now up to my six or seven Valiant TPBs and Divinity is the first one.

So your question is so timely it makes me wonder if your somehow reading my mind.  Time to break back out the tin foil hat!

Finally finished this.  It was a little confusing at first but tied together well by the end.  I felt sorry for Divinity by the end of the book and hope to see more of him in the future.

DIVINITY II
Issues #s 1-4

Oh yeah, this was fun.

I will say it was also really fast to read, at least for me, and I am not sure that is due to the way it is composed (does it have a lot less text than some books?) or because I was having so much fun (and the time just flew by). Regardless, a good little (fast) run with a great "Oh Man!!!" ending, that explains why there will be Divinity III soon.

I strongly suggest this 4 issue series IF and only if you are interested in reading the next one  Grin You will want to I suspect, but just know that going in. As far as needing to read the first Divinity 4 issue mini first, I don't think you need to as the recap the situation pretty well. However, I also strongly suggest you read it regardless as it was also a great read. Divinity/Unity? Yep, yep. Good stuff.

as this is now only part two of (at least) a three part story, I am not grading the nine I want to, as the ending kinda needs a resolution.
