Re: Bloodshot available for digital download next week!

Bought my $20 digital copy to show support. Fun to see Valiant on the big screen.

Re: Want to buy Valiant (V1) CGC 9.8

Are you still looking for X-O 45 to 67? Have a raw set I was thinking about selling. I’m sending a batch of other books to CGC and can include those X-Os that look like 9.8s if you can commit to buy. Send me a PM if interested.

Re: VALIANT Shutting Down for a Month?

I think there could be a lot of damage to small business due to the corona crisis. This is not a good indicator that Valiant is not allowing associates to work from home to keep business going. Could the corona virus put VEI out of business?

Re: (WTS?) VEI Early Variants

I inquired about a book as well. We traded a few messages. He seemed open to sending photos so I asked him for a scan of the front and back of the book but didn’t hear back. He was quite pleasant over PM. Maybe he shipped them off to CGC?

Re: DBS’s 2020 CGC Submissions

Great submission. Let me know if you ever want to offload an extra Shadowman #5 1:125 line wide CGC 9.8. I’ve be hunting that for quite some time. Good luck with the submission!

Re: Estimate Print run of Eniac 1 (of 4) #Badidea

Didn't I read somewhere that Bad Idea expects more retailers to be added in the future, and when the new retailers are added, they want to be able to offer them the full line of books? If so, the print run of ENIAC #1 (and all early Bad Idea books) would need to have lots of extras built in for fut...

Re: DBS’s “VEI Top 10” - March 2020

Thanks for posting these top 10s! I love them. Reminds me of the yesteryears of getting the recent copy of Wizard to see the top books. Magnus 5 was on the Wizard list for a long time and is what spurred my interest in Valiant. For your Unity 6 description, I don't believe a 1:50 Unity 4 exists. Am ...

Re: Bad Idea Promises to Change the Comic Book Industry Status Quo

I don't have a LCS so I only read digital (and sometimes buy trades on Amazon). I'm not gonna set up a mail order just for two books a month. Sucks that Bad Idea seems to think making it easier to purchase a book is a bad idea. Pun intended. Sounds like that strategy is aimed at a very small group ...

Re: The Final Witness

I'm both interested and hopeful on The Final Witness. I like well done noir type books. It will be fun to see one done in the Valiant universe. I picked up Revival years back just because I liked the genre. That was such a great book by Seeley. Loved it. Maybe Valiant can do something similar with t...

I see no issue with having a whole Bad Idea subforum as part of *this* message board. There is already Valiant history baked into whatever comes of Bad Idea. Let’s be proud of that!

Re: Rarest Bloodshot Comic book?

This is pretty cool too. In the Bloodshot book, I saw that they have a page explaining the grading system for comic books (very fine, near mint, etc.). Like they are trying to create more interest in the US comic book market.

Nice pictures aj583 . Yours are in great conditions too. I guess if they come with the box, should be pretty well protected. May I ask how you've acquired them? Do you know more history about these books and their publishing company Americom? When the DMG Bloodshot and Harbinger books started showi...
