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

Other. I’m not feeling much enthusiasm for any new Valiant series of late (only picking up RAI currently), but I’m an open minded person and will give anything a try that looks appealing. There just isn’t much going on that is appealing to me. I am not automatically against everything they may do at...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

Has anyone read Animosity from Aftershock Comics? It's not available on Comixology Unlimited so I wanted to ask before I spent money on it. It is worth reading since it is a new concept. I read the entire series on my iPad during this lockdown. I wouldn’t go as far as buying the floppies but if you...

Re: What comics are you reading now?

Over the past couple months since new comics ceased publication, I found that I really just miss Lazarus & Immortal Hulk. I’m used to Lazarus taking quite a while between issues, so it’s Immortal Hulk that I miss the absolute most. So that inspired me to go back into re-reading old Hulk comics. I st...

Even if there are 1,500-2,000 copies of Harbinger #3 1:20 variants , that's a really small number considering Livewire's redesign/reboot is basically an all-new Valiant title character (first appearance).

2 Boom! Series: Something is Killing the Children and Once and Future. I thought both were really good. SIKTC is a horror book and does a great job being creepy as hell.

Re: Disregarding continuity...a solution?

Forgetting continuity or ignoring it shouldn't be a "thing" no writer should be given that option. This is all about editorial and what they are demanding from the teams brought in on the books.

There was a 4002 Geomancer IIRC in Rai who had been in prisoner by Father. Book of Death included Tama and, I didn’t read it, but I think (?) Insurgence did too. I liked Kay and wish she was given more page time. She really only appeared in the 1 A&A arc and then was promptly killed of in The Valia...
