Re: If this is as good as it’s going to get then watcha gonna do? Take the poll!

Comics have ups and downs. Try reading Superman from issue #1 to current. There were YEARS of awful. Try reading Spider-Man from start to finish. There are periods of facepalms. That is part of the game sadly. I hope so, but with the same people in charge do you think it’s likely to change dramatic...

Re: Is the VIP sneak peak the most undervalued Valiant book?

The only way I see this changing from a curiosity to something increasingly worth money is if something is done with the characters that are illustrated (under different names, of course). Is it a curiosity on par with the iBooks Magnus book or does its limited nature make it more valuable? They we...

Re: Is the VIP sneak peak the most undervalued Valiant book?

In order to be "the most undervalued Valiant book" the VIP Sneak Peak would have to first be a "Valiant book". It isn't. It's a Nikey shoe. It's a Ferraro car. It's a Butterthumbs candy bar. It's a hamburger from McDonney's. It's a bottle of Shoulder & Heads shampoo. Most importantly, it's not even...
