Re: Why did VEI take the chinese money?

I have a feeling the downfall was caused more by Kothari than Cuneo. Just my thoughts.

Re: Question(s) for the VH1/90's crowd.

I've also written several times about my original VALIANT collecting. IMHO VALIANT became the scapegoat for the overprinting everyone was doing. Many don't remember that at that time they had to compete with Marvel putting out there major titles twice a month and clogging up all the shelves in the d...

This is a pretty significant piece of board history. Most of the VEI new stuff isn't really. Someone should grab it, I have 2. :thumb:

Re: Rare X-O Manowar Statue for sale

I believe there was one painted one, maybe two. If I remember correctly one was Layton's. I think Vaultkeeper bought it in a larger purchase from Bob.

I think Dinesh might have one, not sure though. I think he's had just about everything at one point, really!

Valiant Summer Special 2012 C2E2 CGC

I have two copies of this book graded CGC 9.4. If someone on the board would like one for $20 + shipping let me know.

If you don't know, this is the first new printed work for VEI and given out at their first show appearance in 2012 in Chicago.

PM me with any interest.

Re: Valiant at C2E2?

Sounds like they are cutting back on their Convention presence. I would think if they are not at this, they'll be pretty much scarce except for maybe NYCC because of it's proximity. I do know they always got great location in Chicago and NY because Fred had a great relationship with the showrunners ...

Re: Shooter’s Solar run

I asked someone who would have a definitive answer and he basically said VEI would have to make a deal to reprint, but if someone else wanted to reprint they'd have to make a deal with them pretty much.

So I guess you guys are right.

Re: Why did Jason Kothari exit Valiant?

That's as good an explanation as any. Sounds plausible. Yeah sounds good but that's not the reason. -Brian Some of us know why. Unfortunately it is private business between the owners (shareholders), Dinesh, and Jason, from some time ago. It would be inappropriate to comment publicly on this IMHO.

Re: Rate your trust, Vfans moderators vs other board moderat

Greg and Co. have done a great job here over the years. There's not much flaming or drama anymore which might make things a little less exciting than they used to be 10 years ago or so, but on the other hand, the board seems to deal with the comics, stories, and business of Valiant more professional...

I was with Dinesh when this all went down right around SDCC that year. I wouldn't necessarily say JS was "fired", I would say he chose his own path and was disloyal to those that were paying him at that time. The Gold Key properties were in play and JS had a personal relationship with the owners and...
