Positive discussion about a current Valiant comic? An unfamiliar sound indeed.

Can you take it over to the published section and explain why it was amazing?

Dr Tomorrow #3 (2020)

What’s was the big plot twist? That the older Dr Tomorrow was a bad guy? :? That’s it ? Or was it because another Dr Tomorrow appears at the end or is that the kid become older? Someone explain what was so good about this issue because I’m not getting it? My take is that first time writer gets to do...

Let’s get Abnett on more books, he’s easily the best writer Valiant has right now.

Especially after the VERY 1999/2000 Acclaim-like letter from Fred Pierce in Previews and Doc Tomorrow. Shouldn't be long now before it all fades away.

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

Comics have ups and downs. Try reading Superman from issue #1 to current. There were YEARS of awful. Try reading Spider-Man from start to finish. There are periods of facepalms. That is part of the game sadly. I hope so, but with the same people in charge do you think it’s likely to change dramatic...

As we get ready for more Valiant books to be released, after a break in buying Valiant then how do people feel about the immediate future?

Does a forced break of the comic buying habit have a long term impact?

What say you ...the remaining 5 Valiant fans ?

I'm not the biggest Hopeless/Hallum fan, but I've enjoyed some of his Marvel (especially Spider-Woman), and none of it was ever this bad, inexplicable, or inconsistent. This, like Psi-Lords, feels like editorial jumping in and rewriting stuff by committee. It's because it seems most of the ideas be...

Re: Are we becoming indifferent towards Valiant?

I've been reading stories with these characters in them since the mid 90s and I still like what I read. I also think we're nowhere near as bad as the Acclaim material was. Each to their own but let’s also recognise that you’re in the minority amongst Valiant fans, at least on this site which is the...

Re: XO and Savage cancelled??

XO was their best selling book in March, but granted it was a #1. Looking back over the past 8 years though I believe XO has outsold Bloodshot consistently. It’s also up until now been the better book consistently (minus the Lemire run). Can’t use the Bloodshot numbers from March (or any numbers in...

Speaking of Bloodshot, surely that must be up for cancellation soon? But isn't Bloodshot the best selling ongoing title right now? We don't know where X-O is gonna land after the first issue bump. Best selling but under 6000, let’s remember a Bloodshot film just came out in March and the sales are ...

I can't comment on release dates just yet, but SAVAGE #1 and X-O MANOWAR #2 are still on the way. They should pull Savage and re-think the whole approach. Let B. Clay Moore tell the next part of his story, get an artist with a closer style to Larosa and move away from the tedious comedic style book...

Re: XO and Savage cancelled??

I think this has more to do with the “pencils down” order and halt to publication during the Coronavirus outbreak than anything else. Savage was always going to be a limited series, so it’s not likely to get cancelled, and XO—as crappy as the reviews have been—is still their best selling, “flagship...

Don’t want to build your hopes up too much but there’s a post on Twitter from Comic List showing Acclaim 2.0’s publishing plan over the next few months and it shows cancellations for XO and Savage!
