Re: Paramount Picks Up Harbinger From Sony

Hold on a moment. In my mind, the only rights that Sony had were distribution rights for the films, with a minor creative input. I think that means that a shared universe is still a possibility, the only difference is which studio is distributing each franchise for films. This may be wrong and I am ...

Would yo work for Marvel now?

After seeing this article involving Marvel EIC C.B. Cebulski, would you work for the current iteration of Marvel comics?

Re: Bloodshot movie test screening reviews

So, why do you think they had to create a new character for the movie which has not been in the comic books? The character, played by Sam Heughan, of Corporal Harlan Shifflet appears to be new. In an interview with Parade Sam says “.....It’s a really iconic character that plays a new superhero, or ...

Re: VALIANT MAY 2019 COMIC BOOK SALES

Based on this twitter post, could Eric Heisserer be coming back?

Re: First look at Vin Diesel as Bloodshot

So, from the picture, it does seem that Sony's Bloodshot will be bald. :? Is this really a "sticking point"....for hardcore Valiant comic fans? His hair has usually been very short. Hair is not a deal breaker for me. It will be interesting to see if he does have some hair at any point during the fi...

Re: "Joe Illidge, No Longer Executive Editor at Valiant"

Stability in staff is something that Valiant badly, badly need right now. The recent staff changeover has clearly hurt the books, and the sooner that a new and stable team can be formed, who are ready to bring enthusiasm and committment to the table, the better. Valiant seems like a tired boxer in ...

He and Dinesh had a falling out and Dinesh "left" the company. Mintz subsequently parachuted in his own friend or person recommended to him,...
