Re: Newly promoted senior editors...

Well I posted back in March because we have seen it enough times already. Why the games? We have been the most hardcore dedicated fans...why not just say what is what. I mean I put in writing because I didn't want people thinking I was making this up after the fact. Sorry, just angers me that they ...

Re: Where are all the end of year awards for Valiant in 2019

As perhaps the only person on the board that seems to have enjoyed most of the DMG output (I would poop on Bloodshot: Rising Spirit like the rest of you though), I'd still be happy to suggest that whilst it's all been good, it's not been spectacular: not 'awards spectacular' for example. You're not...

Re: BAD IDEA

Serious question: Is this board going to be migrated to a new Bad Idea site & forum? I think it should, honestly, and for multiple reasons: 1) Obviously pretty much everyone here, including me, loves Dino and wants to support his new venture. And pretty much everyone here (not including me) is sour ...

Re: Livewire 5-8 were great

I LOVE "cartoony" art. I genuinely believe this was technically poor artwork, not a style preference. I think the facial expressions were terrible. The line work was unclear and didn't convey the story well at all. That hot mess of a splash page with the cop showing her badge is permanently burned ...

I saw that the "This Board Used to Be Cool" thread got deleted, but I'll reiterate what I wrote there: this is now a board for fans of a thing which is populated by people who are no longer fans of that thing. The fact that you still hang around after finding most of the last two years to be garbag...

Re: Livewire 5-8 were great

Yeah, well...that's, like, your opinion, man! Seriously though, I can see that this run could be to your taste and some of it could be great to you . But to say that the art effectively told the story is patently ridiculous. On top of those, there are a lot of other issues that a lot of people disl...

Re: Livewire 5-8 were great

And I plowed through Livewire #9-12 just now as well. These to me are a perfect example of where the disconnect is happening with older fans. The art in this arc was not to my personal taste at all . Looking at the pages purely as static, visual art, without reading the story, I don't particularly l...

Re: Livewire 5-8 were great

I'm open to hear people's actual criticisms of this book, but I can't imagine they're going to boil down to anything other than:
1) It's not the style you want from Valiant, or;
2) Your mind was closed because Dinesh is gone and/or because this book was too black and female for you.

Livewire 5-8 were great

I'm posting this morning somewhat exasperated over how misled I was by people on this board about Livewire. I've been behind on my reading, slowly catching up on my Valiant titles from 2019, and saved Livewire for last since the consensus on this board seemed to be that it was awful. I read the 1st ...

No worries. Robert isn't as overtly outgoing as Dinesh, but I promise he is super friendly. I wish people would give him a chance, learn his name, etc. I say this not as a personal friend of his. I really barely know him. But I have worked with him on several projects and just find him to be a good ...

Re: Gt V #141 guest says "I don't wanna get too far in th we

Also, like, he's been with the company since 2012. He's at a ton of cons. Referring to him as "Valiant senior editor" and refusing to simply call him "Robert" also shows you've already made up your mind about what Valiant is doing.
