Re: Quarantine game... pick what I read

I have indeed read RAI zero... many times! I have two copies of it in my collection (one matte, one glossy!) :D I read the original RAI/Magnus flip-book issues way back in the day when they were first published, but didn’t get into RAI until well after it had changed to RAI & The Future Force. I had...

Re: Quarantine game... pick what I read

A while ago I decided to pick up digital versions of VH1 RAI 1-5, but haven’t had the time to get around to reading them. I am still missing print copies of 2,3 & 4 in my collection.

I’m thinking I’ll be queuing up those comics as my next quarantine reading session :D

Welcome! I highly recommend reading the 2012 Harbinger series, if you’re looking to try out any other new Valiant titles!

Re: Bad Idea Donates $25,000 to Retailers as Publisher Pauses Launch

Bad Idea FTW! Once again showing everyone else how to be classy business people. :clap: :clap:

As far as poaching more Valiant talent - totally agree with the idea of going after Dan Abnett & Juan Jose Ryp, as well as Adam Gorham, Alex Paknadel, and Raul *&* Patricia Martin!

Re: Favorite DMG/Valiant Series?

I voted for Incursion, Punk Mambo & Fallen World. It seems likely that RAI would edge out Punk Mambo for one of my 3 votes, but I haven’t read an issue of it yet so I can’t cast that vote (been buying digital copies of the issues to date, but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet). Incursion also ...

Re: Lazarus

Glad to say that Lazarus:Risen #4 came out on what looks to be the final day of new release comics for the foreseeable future. They managed to keep to their schedule of releasing these oversized new format issues on a quarterly basis this year. Here’s hoping the industry (and everyone in general) ma...

Now it’s my turn to comment this - wow, no one wants to discuss the new XO, eh?

I am very aware of his inflated pricing habits. I had always wanted to buy a comic from there just to say that I did, due to the nostalgia element of growing up seeing his ads in comics for so long. Every time I actually see something if his listed on eBay, I usually laugh at the price. It does not...

If the cover direction was for generic action or standing poses, the more generic the better, the cover artists succeeded brilliantly.
