Certainly nice to have a sealed copy like this without a price sticker on it.

"Beyond Valiant" - Valiant. Works for me....

Of course, with every virus come wicked variants....

1. Pre-Unity- This term sucks, because it seemingly doesn't include Unity! Well, it's the "hard(er)-to-find" pre-Unity books vs. the Shooter era (incl. Unity). But we could certainly differentiate: VH1preU VH1inclU VH1postU and VAC (or "VBQ") for 1994-96 3. VEI and DMG should be separated. VEI ende...

Re: Hardcovers list?

I think an Eternal Warrior deluxe edition would be a great paid for add-on for the Scorched earth KS, with a later retail release. Especially if Scorched Earth included the return of the Houses. (Not saying it does, or could be.) Sadly that concept was abandoned way too quickly. Speaking about the ...

Re: Alien races in VH1

I do remember the MALEV screwing with humanity and the DROMAK screwing with Aric's mind but both were past-SHOOTER. None of them could anal-screw as thoroughly as the Greys, of course.

Re: Alien races in VH1

There are numerous sci-fi traditions that have very little to no non-Earth life. Asimov's Foundation comes to mind, and I've heard the show FIREFLY has no alien life. Firefly is the best show ever -- right after Twin Peaks, of course. I "believe" there were aliens in Twin Peaks, too. Although we ne...

Re: Barry Windsor-Smith signature on X-O Manowar # 1

The most current signatures in the Limited Editions of Monsters are slightly different again -- a slightly shortened and even uglier version of the one on Solar #1 above. Well, maybe it turned out to look uglier because BWS wasn't really into the idea of spending an entire day on signing 1,200 or so...

Re: Necromantic energy in VEI

As Greg says, mentioned or not, we can assume it to be there, but I'm still curious. Oh, I thought you were more inter...

"DARQUE POWER" is mentioned in Rai #0 (November 1992).
Ah, yes, in the narrative when Geoff meets Bloodshot.

1st -- Shadowman #8, alongside Master Darque's first full appearance.

Not sure if it is already named "Darque Power" though? Maybe that's in SM #12. I need to reread this!

Re: DBS's 100% CONFIRMED "Rare" Print Run Info

Any guesses as to how many 2012 Harbinger #3 1:20 Zircher comics (1st new Livewire) were made? The only clue that I see is that Harbinger #2 1:20 had 2000 printed. But, since Harbinger #2 was advertised to have a first appearance (1st Darpan) is it possible that Harbinger #3 1:20 had a smaller prin...

Didn’t Dan Abnett write the Volume 3 six issue series of Shadowman for Acclaim? I loved that series and thought it was very underrated.
Yes, they certainly did -- DnA.

Issue #6 and then it got canceled....WTF!
