Re: My Valiant Story

and highlight Valiant characters wherever possible like in the Battle of the Week (Ninjak vs Cyclops, Bloodshot vs Daredevil, X-O Manowar vs Colossus). I kind of remember some of those. We talked about them on the boards. It was always good to see Valiant characters mentioned in that sort of format...

Re: Newly promoted senior editors...

Well I posted back in March because we have seen it enough times already. Why the games? We have been the most hardcore dedicated fans...why not just say what is what.

Re: Welcome to Dead Universes...

Just completed my Firearm collection, and today, I bought the entire Warriors of Plasm for $10. Maybe a bit overpriced, but the shop gave me a whole bunch of free comic books! I don't know that my collection of firearms will ever be complete. High on my list right now are a 20 ga. Mossberg Shockwav...

Re: Some Really Crazy Stuff Going On With Mile High Lately

I have checked out their website many times but have never bit the bullet and put in an order. Their prices looked fair to me. There used to be a paragraph on their website where they were describing how they give away free comics with an order and said that they gave away good comics, not something...

Re: Only the SECOND known copy of a Valiant book located 4/10/14

Re: Valiant Giving Away Free Comics

It's a good idea. It costs them nothing and they potentially appeal to a new reader. I cannot concede that the current circus running Valiant had a good idea. Can't do it. The very thought of that sentence pains me like fire; when I try to speak it, it tastes like ashes in my mouth. DMG eatin' crac...

I wonder if there is a common etymology with the Bokmål faen?
I would assume that's the same word as Fan in Swedish, which means the devil.

Shortly after announcing new "guidelines" -- incl. staying at home and keeping a distance of 1.5m in public whenever and wherever possible-- German Chancellor Angela Merkel had to self-quarantine herself. A doctor she met on Friday has been tested positive. But who can know how far is 1.5m? Is that...

479 cases reported
1,047 tests completed

That's like almost 50%. That can't be right.
They are pretty rigorously pre-screening patients that they test. Roughly half of the pre-screened patients have tested positive. That suggests they are screening well, to me.

Re: Good news about the Bloodshot movie

Forbes turned into clickbait, literally. They pay reporters based on number of clicks only. No clicks, no money. So the nature of his job changed. You might attract more flies with honey than vinegar, but as demonstrated by this Forbes writer, a modest-sized pile of feces seems to work even better.

Re: Good news about the Bloodshot movie

That's probably a Ben Mendhelson article.

If conservatives or fans in general hated The Last...
