Re: Have any Valiant series been "cancelled"?

Probably Unity, though can't really say that I read it much except for the X-O and Armor Hunters tie-ins.

Re: Dinesh talks Bloodshot movie

The overall premise of Bloodshot is honestly more in line with Universal Soldier, not Terminator or Total Recall, but that's really just fanboy nitpicking

Re: Hey Marvel Comics! Stop disgracing yourselves!

I'm not inherently anti-Marvel, but it does irk me that because the Disney films are doing so well, they feel that they have the license to do whatever they want in the books and think that people will just lap it up. And the books that actually have some modicum of depth to them will be cancelled a...

Re: Bloodshot: Reborn #9 Discussion

However, more problematic for me, nine issues to get to this point at the end of the issue makes me reflect that I don't feel there has been much meat on the bones of Bloodshot Reborn to be honest, and I think that was underlined by Ray/Bloodshot not following through on exploring his history. So i...

Re: Shooter's Big Bang

Could you expand on what that book says Shooter's original ideas for the New Universe were? I'm a huge New Universe fan, but I'm not sure if I've heard what that book has to say on that topic. I really appreciate any info. Basic gist was that he started off by having people kill either popular char...

Shooter's Big Bang

Been reading Marvel Comics: The Untold Story and it's gotten me interested yet again in Shooter's initial ideas for "New Universe" where a big bang would obliterate everyone and everything in the Marvel Universe into something entirely new and different. While Ultimate Marvel seems to be the closest...

Re: MAD MAX Meets DARK KNIGHT RETURNS In New BLOODSHOT REBOR

Bloodshot is drawn into an adventure that pits him against the Shadowmen, a gang of monster truck driving mad men that have appropriated the likeness of Jack Boniface, Valiant’s Shadowman. But there is someone helping the Shadowmen, a puppet master, who’s secret identity will turn Bloodshot’s world...

Re: Who holds the rights to Defiant and Broadway?

Broadway Video (the parrent of Broadway Comics) was bought out by Golden Books, which was then purchased by Random House (publishing) and Classic Media (film and TV). Thats the same deal that included the Gold Key characters. Dreamworks now ownes Classic Media. It would be interesting to see Dreamw...

Re: Thoughts on the Future

The problem with trying to mass merchandize towards children is that, well, Valiant isn't an entirely "kid-friendly" product. Which isn't to say that there aren't ways around that, take a look at Marvel's "Adventures" line for instance it's numerous cartoons on Disney XD And there has been quite a l...
