Re: Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons Resigns

My point was that the consensus at the LCS about Valiant is like getting a consensus about food from people who refuse to taste it. Those issues left on the stands just need a little ketchup, Greg. Or mustard, if you prefer. Didn't we establish that Valiant was sriracha? We did indeed http://valian...

Vin Diesel playing Bloodshot should cover the diversity bases for the sjw crowd. I love his tweet today ... looks like the film is going to actually happen. Isn’t he straight up Italian? Though the actor knows his mother's ethnicity, — of English, German, Irish and Scottish ancestry — Diesel never ...

Re: Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons Resigns

The consensus the other day at my LCS was that VEI is crashing and burning like the Hindenburg. Consensus at my LCS was that VEI wouldn't last a year. That was 2012.

Re: Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons Resigns

Ten thousand variant covers for each issue. Not so much. At least not in my case. [/u] . I have to agree. I don't mind doubling down to get a cool cover, but anything more than 2, and every issue, it loses my interest... [/u] and thus my desire to collect the singles. So rather then them having 2-3...

Re: Dinesh explains timeline post Book of Death

I think the death will be Faith. We know she's hooking up with Neela, The Timewalker for the mini Faith and the Future Force, so right there is an 'out' for Valiant; Faith dies in Harbinger Renegade #5 but thanks to this timetravling ability with Neela, she can to go back in time just prior to the ...

Re: Book of Geomancer in VEI

The thing is the present day book is pretty much useless. We don't know how long it was in Armstrong's possession not being updated, and would only include the past anyway (much of which Gilad might already know). It's the future version which is important as it can tell us what happened in the boo...

That depends. Speculation here, but they may have a couple routes mapped out and be trying to see what direction is going to stick with fans.

Sometimes just "Observing" can enact change in the observed. That's the Heisenberg Principle or more generally the Observer Effect. Schroedinger's cat? No, Schrodinger's Cat says that quantum states are so counter-intuitively unpredictable that when applied to a macro scale, they would lead to situ...

Indeed it does. They are all trained to replace Archer if (when) he fails his mission to slay Aram.
