Re: DBS’s “VEI Top 10” - May 2020

:clap: thanks you! The HW2 metal cover was, anecdotally, the most difficult for me to obtain in a cost-effective manner, beyond X-O, which is back to going through the roof, it’s the rarest of the ultra-limited covers. I have a few of each. The first one I paid high prices through my LCS. The other...

Re: Is the VIP sneak peak the most undervalued Valiant book?

I think this will end up closer to the early TMNT ashcans, the Maxx ashcans or error books with large enough print runs like Venom Lethal Protector. It feels like it's got low awareness but if that changes look out. Even now I can't find a copy under $100 if at all

Re: Who won the EW 27 9.8 VVSS?

I know CKB sold a 9.6 a year ago for $300. There is only 1 9.8 on the census, presumably this one. I would have paid 4 figures for it. I had four figure offers for my Harbinger TPB 2nd print, which I traded for a Cary Nord painted cover. Refardless, the seller missed an opportunity for certain. Wha...

Is the VIP sneak peak the most undervalued Valiant book?

Have been thinking about this today and here is the case in my head. This book is crazy important and crazy rare. - It was never properly distributed. It was only sold I've read at one convention and by one dealer. Does anyone have info on who and when? - Without this book there would have not been ...

Re: Mintz was interviewed by Deadline... it's an interesting read

He says things like I want to make a shared movie universe and we know for a fact he killed the one that VEI spent a decade building up to because he needed more credit. He has micro dick energy if you ask me.

Re: The Bloodshot movie...what would have happened

I loved the movie and I think if it wasn't for corona we'd be hearing about a sequel. Clearly the pandemic effected the opening weekend. My theater was a ghost town for every movie that friday, was limiting seating to just 50% of the seats on saturday and was closed by Sunday. That is about as bad a...

Re: New Ninjak, Harbinger and Punk Mambo coming soon

I'm very interested that Punk Mambo is getting another series. I didn't think Valiant was all that invested in the character considering how little she appeared under Dinesh and company, but she seems to have a growing profile under DMG. Outside of creating her from scratch, making her a fan favori...

Maybe Meyers was promoted? That would be cool.

At the time, that was the top comic ...

Bad Idea Donates $25,000 to Retailers as Publisher Pauses Launch

Just saw this

https://bleedingcool.com/comics/bad-ide ... es-launch/

They are also pausing the launch but interesting that they are making more comics and hiring Valiant talent. Who from the current Valiant line up would be cool to see at Bad Idea?

Re: Favorite DMG/Valiant Series?

I enjoyed Fallen World A LOT. Haven't picked up Rai yet. Like what I've read of Dr. Tomorrow, and Punk Mambo was pretty fun. I know DMG gets a lot of flack on this board, but overall they're still one of the more solid publishers in comics. Definitely better than Marvel or DC. All that I've read of...

they imply that they heard from a “source” that has been correct before. I doubt it. This guy I know told me that 2 + 2 = 4. Turns out, he was correct!

Re: Estimate Print run of Eniac 1 (of 4) #Badidea

In terms of sales I’m going to say it will not be in the top 300. Not sure what that necessitates these days, but less than 3k. Probably between 1k-2.5k at most. If it’s anywhere close to 5k that would be an unabashed success given their novel distribution method. Total print run could be higher so...

With just 100 stores they won't sell many but I think that's the plan. They've said over and over they want to start small, sell out in a few stores and slowly grow bigger. Even with each store ordering 10 copies (which is a lot for a new indie publisher) they will only get to 1000 copies. My local ...
