Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

Just noticed this today, as I've put off purchasing the "classic collection" until they figure out the "bonus" slide issue. What's interesting is that it says it's a DVD-ROM product, as opposed to a USB product like the others. In any event, FYI. https://gitstore.gitcorp.com/shop?olsPage=products%2...

Re: Valiant: The Complete Digital Comic Book Collection

I bought one.

Probably WON'T include the SOLAR/Magnus/Turok, but I am optimistic that they just can't include it on the advertising. Either way, it brings many digital comics into my collection.

Re: Valiant: The Complete Digital Comic Book Collection

This is the biggest piece of crap. I want this on my mobile device. Can't get it to work, so I went ahead and tried it on the desktop (which I didn't want to do given that it's only a license for 2 devices). I finally get it working, and the issues are so *SQUEE* slow to upload. I can't get any ima...

Been reading Silver Age stuff again.

Re: Valiant: The Complete Digital Comic Book Collection

Received a notification that the item had shipped.

Looks it recorded my "fancy" upgrade order - and the other part will ship later? Hopefully?

I will let you know when/if I receive the first shipment.

Re: Valiant: The Complete Digital Comic Book Collection

If we can't meet the economic challenge of printing periodicals on our own shores and keeping that one simple periodical within a dollar or two of printing them in China and shipping them across the Pacific, then what does that say about our capacity for production in this country?

That's why they should print them in North America. :hm: Unfortunately, no one would pay five times the cost.

In an industry that has lost 90 percent of its readership over the last 20 years, doubling (PLUS!) the cost of comic books is a terrible idea.

This could be a great move. I keep thinking about great successes with sort of awful characters (Ninjak) - and flops with great ones.

Sounds like everyone gets the thumbdrive at the same time, then the full Platinum premium sets (filmcards, X-O reprint, and thumbdrive) will arrive later. Keeping my fingers crossed... But it doesn't sound like a deal, either. When the 'bonus' is getting part of what I ordered at a slightly delayed...

Re: EBAY SALE ON. KEVIN'S SUMMER SALE Prices listed.

I am closing a few of the offers off, and moving into a private offer or two.

For the most part, the starting bids were 'minimum' offers.

School starts up again this week, so I will be busy again...

Thanks for interest.
