Re: VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

Is there continuity left in the Valiant books? Is there any continuity left at least between the 2012 series and the DMG books? I've got quite a few (not all) of the Deluxe editions through maybe FCBD X-O (with the yellow cover) but after that, nothing. Yes, there is continuity, but there have been...

Re: VALIANT JANUARY 2020 COMIC BOOK SALES!

wow. Q&W is super low. maybe if they came up with a variant that was interesting instead of rinse and repeat the numbers would at least be higher. also it really shows how few people are reading the books anymore. this doesnt feel like acclaim anymore, this feels like valiant at the end of vh1, in ...

Re: Posters: Comic, Promos, Authentic Movie Posters, 27x40 Double Sided One Sheets & Other Cool Prints

Time is our enemy. I have a few Valiant and Bad Idea domain names. My favorite domain name I own is superhero.ink. I'm not sure if I'll use that one or not.

Re: Posters: Comic, Promos, Authentic Movie Posters, 27x40 Double Sided One Sheets & Other Cool Prints

Thanks for the very thoughtful and careful rundown. It's nearly exactly what I've been looking for. My large poster collection has increased significantly with the large Valiant posters over the years, and I had up to 20 rolls at one point. I've consolidate them quite a bit, but there are still many...

Thanks for sharing that. I’ve never seen these folios. Not cheap but incredibly high end. What is your experience with them? I have an extensive Valiant poster collection, but storage has not been ideal at all.

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 wh...

Re: VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

My interest has waned to the point that I’m not reading them anymore, and I don’t buy the entire output. I’m a mega fan, and I was thinking about dropping everything altogether. The Doctor Tomorrow previews look abysmal. The look and feel of the art is just not to my liking. I’m not saying it’s bad ...

Re: Valiant 2020: The Year of Heroes - Trailer

I like the enthusiasm and am excited about action figures.

It's hard to not compare the product and fan enthusiasm of 1991-92 and 2012-13, but I realize that's not fair.

I used Google Street View to find the address for GITCorp's office, and it appears to be run out of someone's home.
It has sales of probably less than 500 units last year. I’d be concerned if they were in an office.

Re: GitCorp Bloodshot Collection

So let me get this straight... you're paying $20 for 159 comics, and you're complaining that it's not DRM free? Shouldn't you just be happy to get a ridiculous amount of comics for a ridiculously cheap price? And what does this have to do with the Facebook group? Me and other have complained about ...

Re: 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 ...

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

The only aspect of this I don't like it the strict one per customer rule. I like to have 3 copies, one to read, one to sign, and if I'm lucky, one to slab. But I'm probably in the minority here.

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

This does sound innovative, at least from a big publishing perspective. If I can get access to the books, I'll mail them to anyone in the world on these boards. In fact, I hope to get a few extra for this very purpose.

Looking forward to it, and hoping to see more details in March at ECCC.
