Re: If this is as good as it’s going to get then watcha gonna do? Take the poll!

I still collect Rai. If a good series comes out I will get it. No more minis for me. Strange how much has changed, so sad I won’t get a gold Rai book for this series.

Re: Massive layoffs at Valiant today [emoji20]

https://bleedingcool.com/comics/valiant-entertainment-make-redundancies/ The final update says "Valiant reps state that Russell [Braun] remains in his current position." So what is it? Anyhow, how can they even keep (paying) everyone with the way they have pushed back all their series; some even to...

Re: Rai 0 in CGC down in price?

Mintz killed spec on Bloodshot when he took the rights to Paramount. The reason spec is up on Harbi her, XO is because people have hope...that too will fade when they find out more about Mintz. Get it if you can.

Re: Barry Windsor-Smith signature on X-O Manowar # 1

I met BWS at a con once and he signed three Valiant books for me ... I also got him to sign three cards from the Upper Deck set. On the books he wrote his scribble, but on the cards he did the same initials he used on covers (BWS). This was at least 20 years ago ... Bob Layton and Don Perlin were a...

Outside of those two books I have always wanted XO (actually a couple of them!) and Unity 0 signed by him. I think those are some of the most important books he did for Valiant.i love...

Re: Undervalued Gems

I would state that most of them are variants, and that's a whole other beast! Lol. But the overall health of the market is staggering. So many books have gotten huge bumps that just seem to keep going. I agree or course that this is buoyed by other markets..high waters float all boats as they say.

One of my favorite variants ever just because it was so crazy! I have 2 copies and I have a make ready (which is different layers of the cover as it went through production, 4 sheets) which is so fun. Super happy that I have the goat and then I have one of the characters from Stalinverse.
