Re: 29 years of collecting Valiant...

I love the VALIANT characters and always will at their core. I’ve also accepted that just because a comic has valiant characters doesn’t make it VALIANT. I’m hoping another company eventually gets a stab at making them great again for a 3rd time. In the mean time, I’ve started a reread of VH1. Steel...

Re: Bloodshot Movie is free on STARZ

I watched it last weekend and enjoyed it overall. Was more a Vin D movie than Bloodshot though. I felt like the movie could have been called “Scalpel” and it would have made zero difference. Good action movie though and worth the time.

Re: I'm starting to think Bad Idea might actually be a terrible idea.

Bad Idea seems to be exclusive by design. That’s cool. That’s their thing. Quality over quantity. Not everybody’s thing, that’s for sure. But, they definitely own it.

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.

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...
