Re: The Visitor #3 Discussion

The story continues to crawl along at a snails pace. Literally nothing has happened and I could care less about any of the characters (none of whom look remotely Japanese btw...get an artist who can draw more than 3 faces—fat, regular and skinny—please. ). And I think I’ve become less interested in ...

Re: Dr. Tomorrow #1 Discussion

The art is a bit cartoony for the tone and action if the book, but the story/plot was solid enough to keep me interested. Very glad to see Neela and Ank involved. Shouldn’t have a story dealing with time travel without her involved somehow.

Re: After all the belly-aching, Dr Tomorrow looks pretty awesome

The published issue discussions have become pretty sparse. Speaks to the post VEI readership and quality of titles.

I’ll help you out though...reading them both tonight.

Re: VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

I couldn’t vote because Divinity was left off the list, and the Trilogy+Eternity was the best continuing series under the old regime. Plus, some of the books (Incursion) under DMG, I feel like fall under the old regime. IDK :| Divinity wasn’t in the first 2 years, which is what the OP was comparing...

Re: VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

The poll question is a little lopsided in that VEI had the advantage of rebooting the line after many years of absence so there was a high anticipation factor. DMG took over after the newness had worn off and everyone was in a "what have you done for me lately" mindset. I was open-minded and optimi...

Re: VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

I do think not enough people call out VEI for their early failures (Shadowman and EW specifically, 2nd arc of Q&W, and some others). Similarly, I don’t think DMG has been all bad either. A major knock on them has been the focus on non-tentpole characters. People are going to take sides no matter wha...

MEGALITH

Sure hope it's not a problem, but are you aware that Continuity comics has used this title? Apart from that, I sure agree with everyone that this is a great cover. /Magnus Yes, but it's probably past trademark protection now, unless Adams is trying to sell collections. But as I remember it, there i...

Re: ENIAC revealed

Unchecked nerds making unreserved comic stories without any concern for the bottom line, profits, and other corporate businessness? Uh, sounds like a really Bad Idea. (Actually, it sounds like a dream. Nobody pinch anybody.) We shall see. No concern for profit usually means unfinished stories. I lo...

Re: Bad Idea Promises to Change the Comic Book Industry Status Quo

This #BadIdea smells like "Legends of the Geomancer". Great story?!? Limited distribution. No collected edition/s. Really #BadIdea :rant: :rant: :rant: This right here! The Legends of the Geomancer debacle is why I stopped reading VEI and stopped collecting once I realized they really weren't going...

Why put up the ban in the first place though? It’s one thing to redirect, the message was much harsher than that.

Bad Idea banned from Valiant Facebook page

Saw this reported today and thought it was interesting. It’s the fan page, but Chris A wants to stay on VALIANT’s good side, so any bad idea mentions should be made on that page or will be deleted. While I’m not thrilled with Bad Idea’s bad idea for distributing comics thus far, I do hope they are s...

Re: Bad Idea Promises to Change the Comic Book Industry Status Quo

I don't have a LCS so I only read digital (and sometimes buy trades on Amazon). I'm not gonna set up a mail order just for two books a month. Sucks that Bad Idea seems to think making it easier to purchase a book is a bad idea. Pun intended. Same. Reading an interview it’s clear their intent is to ...

Re: Bad Idea Promises to Change the Comic Book Industry Status Quo

Thinking about it more, i assume these shops will be big ones who also do mail orders (like Paradise). So they would order large quantities and ship them out? I just don’t see how selling 2 books/month to 20 stores is going to keep you in business otherwise.

Re: Is Bad Idea Planning A New Comics Industry Shake-Up?

Announcement today completely negated any excitement I had for Bad Idea. Basically the only way I’ll be reading these books is via illegal torrent. 20 retailers, no trades, no digital. I have a feeling many on here will feel the same way.

This is very disappointing. No digital. No trades. Only 20 retailers. Basically no chance I ever read any of these books.

Re: BAD IDEA

I’m a member of both the Valiant Fan Page & the Bad Idea fan page on Facebook. I’m anticipating what Dino & crew have up their sleeves, and I’m a fan of their creative output based on what they did for VEI. While I’m a lot less enthusiastic about current Valiant output on average, I’m still a Valia...
