Re: Bragging rights - your best deal of late?

I thought I would share a brag here...first time..lol. I picked up XO 15 Kotaki variant for $2.25. That’s my best brag so far. :D

Re: Rai #2 Discussion

Sorry guys I have not been on the boards much but this was my favorite issue hands down. I loved so much about this story, art and colors. It asked some very important questions and showed some very stark contrasts between what makes Rai the hero and Bloodfather the villain in such subtle ways. Also...

Re: Rai (2019) #3

Hey guys I have had the pleasure being on the podcasts and I think Rai has been better every time. To me issue 2 has been the strongest so far, and three is what every comic needs. Nothing major just some character development , a little down time. That’s not saying things didn’t happen just that it...

Re: Bloodshot (2019) #5

I love the art so I have enjoyed the series so fat. Yes it is different but at least they are commenting on his past which I think is a good thing. I wonder what people will think of 6? :?

Re: Book of the Month - January 2020

Hey guys is anyone reading Rai? I mean this series is great! The art has been top notch feeding into the story, even the coloring works. The story is very layered, working in mostly single issues while advancing the long game. It is dealing with some pretty heavy themes in regards to what constitute...

Re: Is Valiant jinxed?

His daughter died last year. She was sick the year before. I think his leaving Bloodshot had nothing to do with that. I still love Bretts work. I for sure believe that Valiant is jinxed. If it goes down this time I am afraid it’s down for the count.

Re: Is Karl Bollers no longer at Valiant?

Even if that ratio of who left, who was removed is mixed look at how often people are gone. They keep saying how great everything is and how great the out look is and I can’t count how many people have left in the last 2 years. If you count staff with talent that number is more than just a little tr...

Re: Let’s talk solutions to fix Valiant!

Also I think they need to have a plan for announcing new books. For example don’t announce XO Manowar for Nov and then push if back by months. Granted it’s better to do that then go through something like Rising Spirit, but these people are not new at this. I think this is at the core of what's mis...

Great points all. If I remember correctly most con variants were at least 1000, with the exception of the BART Sears Vegas con at 500? It’s been a while so I could be wrong..lol. It was just something I was wondering about. Kind of like the hardcover books with the tip page with signatures, I know t...

Anyone here reading Devil's Odyssey yet?

I don't know how to put it, but it jus...

Re: Crossgen Comics appreciation and memories thread.

I went to a friends store a few weeks back and bought several first and last issues of these series. A bunch of them signed by the creative team, and even a couple preview books. It’s still fun for me to grab these books when I see them.

For what it is and will be I thought it was fine. Seeley has said its action driven. The comedy is something I did not enjoy, but I know why it’s there, or I think I do.
