Re: Doctor Tomorrow #5 Discussion

So now (former) senior editor Robert Meyers wanted an ‘all ages book’ he could give to kids at conventions so he lets another former editor (Arbona) practice being a writer at Valiant and allows him to use ALL the Valiant characters in a FIVE issue series! The results.. Cartoony drawing which kids m...

Re: Book of the Month - April thru August 2020

Yeuch!! What a grim choice!

By a million miles the best...

1. Rai #6

Somehow a free book is 2nd best...

2. FCBD 2020

**********************************this is the bare minimum standard here***************

Dr Tomorrow not good enough

Bloodshot - dropped

Re: Time to get behind Rai and send a positive message to Valiant!

I wont jump on board in the middle. Had their comics not sucked and kept sucking I would have got it but to late now for me. But they can make xo good when ever it comes out Don’t be silly, like the rest of us you’ve probably spent hardly anything on comics during lockdown, it’s only on issue 6! Ju...

Re: Time to get behind Rai and send a positive message to Valiant!

I've continued ordering it, but the shipping has been a mess of cancellations and so on. I think I might be missing an issue as well, but I won't know until the dust settles, I get my next order and then dig in the bins to see what I've got. I'll read it from start when I know I've got a contiguous...

Time to get behind Rai and send a positive message to Valiant!

To whoever remains..if you aren’t reading Rai then as a Valiant fan you should be. Dan Abnett is producing consistently excellent stories and has achieved what most of us want: *Interesting stories *Genuinely using continuity *Characters ‘sound’ like how we know them to be *New and interesting chara...

All this positivity about a new VEI book, it is almost like Dallow's account got hacked.

Re: Rai #6 Discussion

Yes to the post above ! Why Abnett’s run is working so well (in contrast to other series) : 1. The characterisation of Rai is recognisable and consistent to what’s come before. 2. The continuity is in place and continues in a logical manner (not totally disregarded) 3. Established characters and new...

Re: Rai #6 Discussion

Excellent issue! Re-read #5 beforehand as it’s been a while which was useful as a character who appeared minor in that issue appears to be a bigger player in future issues. Dan Abnett is a glimmer of light in these Valiant dark times and I hope Valiant fans are getting behind it. Abnett continues to...

Re: Valiant NY Offices are Permanently Closed

Should've never hired Heather Antos Agreed, but the previous 2 senior editors (Robert ??) and the guy before him were just as bad. The rot set in straight away since 2018. They’ve just made bad hire after bad hire. Heather Antos was supposed to bring in the ‘young, hip crowd’...young and hip but no...

Another bad sign about the health of company. The last 2 years have been one constant slippery slope since Dinesh was ousted.

Quick recap of where we’re at. Former Valiant editor and first time writer is allowed to write VEI’s first multi-verse story and cram in all of Valiant’s characters for no apparent reason. Former senior editor, Robert Meyers, wanted a book he could give to kids at conventions. So now we now have thi...
