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

To answer the original post, no. VIP Sneak isn’t Valiant. Therefore, it can’t even be considered undervalued within the context of Valiant.

At this point, Dynamite would be better off owning the characters. Sad story.

Re: Reading comics

Interesting topic! I like to get super into it when I read comics. Quiet setting. Intro song in my head sometimes. Anthrax’s “I am the Law” is great for Judge Dredd. Lol. Main character voice I attempt to pre-determine a bit if they’ve been around for a while. Example: Aric is always gruff sounding ...

Re: Henceforth March 13 shall be known as Bloodshot Day

I like it! March on Friday the 13th is easy to remember. Has a cycle as well albeit big gaps. March Friday the 13th occurs in a cycle of years by 6-5-6-11 although I only researched from 1801-2099. So, every March 13th, if it turns out as a good memory, every FRIDAY March 13th otherwise. 👍 One never...

Re: Dan DiDio Ousted From DC Comics

I’m glad to see him go. Sorry to see somebody lose their job, but he’ll find another easily enough. Imo, DC’s stories were the best they’ve ever been for the 10 years prior to his becoming publisher. He was a good editor before becoming publisher. One he became publisher, he threw continuity out the...

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

Mile High use to be a treasure trove for reading copies of dead universes. Just a couple of years ago, their fair grade books were priced at 75 cents. Add a 60% discount and you had comics 3 for $1 plus free shipping after $40 spent. Was a huge help in my completing my VALIANT, Defiant, Broadway, Cr...

Re: Discuss Hard To Find Or Currently Hot Comics Of Any Era

Next Men 14 is a curious case. There’s a Hellboy poster on the wall in a panel and one of the next men reference Hellboy in some dialogue. This issue predates San Diego Comic Con 2 (Hellboy’s 1st full appearance). Kind of cheesy but not bad for a dollar bin comic.

A copy of it is one of my holy grails. I remember when I first came on here all those years ago. VCB was a hot topic! Back then, things were way different. Great times! Not to imply things aren’t good now, just was way more exciting back then. For a time, this place was VALIANT.

Re: Will new Judge Dredd TV show be competion for Bloodshot?

Judge Dredd by 2000AD is amazing! I can’t recommend it enough. For anybody interested, Apocalypse War is a great intro into Dredd. Anyhow, I don’t think Megacity One (Dredd show) and Bloodshot are in competition for viewership.

Re: Minor trivia...I have not yet read any issue with Ax

X-O 5-6 is an a+ Ax appearance. My favorite Ax appearance is in Rai 0. Only 1-2 pages but Ax kicks *SQUEE*! Bloodshot 2 is good. His first appearance is in Harbinger 3. Good story as well.
