Re: What comics are you reading now?

I've been reading more Marvel again lately - still loving Immortal Hulk 30 issues in, really digging the new Ghost Rider series so far with Ketch & Blaze as the main focus, sticking with New Mutants after reading the HOX/POX mini-series, and I was even picking up the recent Avengers issues for the S...

Re: VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

I still buy everything in anticipation of catching up... but I must admit that just tonight I was wondering why I'm buying comics I don't read.

Re: Shadowman coming in May by Bunn, Jon Davis-Hunt, and Bellaire

I really liked the Punk Mambo mini-series but couldn't get past the first issue of Roku. I think the line art style is an interesting choice for this, I like the look in the preview images and I am up for giving it a chance. Colours are gorgeous as usual from Jordie. VMG continues to set the bar dis...

Re: VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT April 2020 Solicitations

If the cover direction was for generic action or standing poses, the more generic the better, the cover artists succeeded brilliantly. I hope somebody is keeping track of the number of X-O covers where's he's posing generically with the silly light sword. Quoted for truth. Seriously generic covers ...

Re: Book of the Month - January 2020

I guess I am getting spoiled by modern writers. I really WANT Visitor to be good, but two issues in and the most excitement I have for it is hoping the next issue will be better. I apologize to anyone personally invested in these, but Valiant has been my favorite comic book company since the 90's. ...

Re: Is Valiant jinxed?

It's pretty telling that ALL (or at least nearly all) the advertising for Bloodshot trades is around the Swierczynski run on the book. Although if someone bought a Seeley/Booth issue, I doubt they'd be induced into pumping money into an "old" trade. I think the swierczynski run might be the best, b...

Re: Eternal Warrior, Xaran, & his kids

I think that at the time of the Greg Pak run on EW, there was an editorial clash with some of his plot ideas for the title after it got rolling. It had an impact on the direction of that book, and subsequently some of the continuity that was beginning to be established in those two story arcs. The s...

I most certainly have been reading Grendel Odyssey, 'Tuga!!
