Re: VALIANT JANUARY 2020 COMIC BOOK SALES!

wow. Q&W is super low. maybe if they came up with a variant that was interesting instead of rinse and repeat the numbers would at least be higher. also it really shows how few people are reading the books anymore. this doesnt feel like acclaim anymore, this feels like valiant at the end of vh1, in t...

Re: Shadowman coming in May by Bunn, Jon Davis-Hunt, and Bellaire

Bunn mediocre on Punk Mambo, bad reviews of Roku. Artist looks cartoony and not very ‘horror’. Shadowman looks like a boy based on the previews. Skipping this one. i love shadowman. this is such a bummer. skip city for me unless a preview looks good. bunn is such a middle of the road choice and the...

Re: VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

Okay, same fruit. Then this poll is comparing a fruit during spring time to the very same fruit in winter time, when it's already consumed or rotting away on a field somewhere. Dinesh, Warren, and co. had have 1 year for preparation before they finally launched and rebooted the pre-existing Valiant...

Re: VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

I do think not enough people call out VEI for their early failures (Shadowman and EW specifically, 2nd arc of Q&W, and some others). Similarly, I don’t think DMG has been all bad either. A major knock on them has been the focus on non-tentpole characters. People are going to take sides no matter wh...

VEI vs DMG Valiant: an honest poll

I see comments from time to time that people don't think the new books are that bad and while that baffles me I try to keep an open mind. I also see that many of those who used to post when VEI was not DMG don't post much anymore. So I thought how about an honest poll to honor the 2 year anniversary...

Re: Quantum & Woody 2017 Foil Covers Question - Do more exist???

I remember them being different ratios. Can't remember which is the most rare. I think the orders were too high on the foil covers and they ran out of the old foil a few times so they had to use different ones

Re: Making observations on creator oustings

I've been reading my first time a classic Valiant TPB which is my biggest exposure to VH1 Pre-Unity this far. At about the same time I'm listening to OTV #18 A Conversation with Jay Jay Jackson. She's gotten to the point in her interview where she is talking about Jim Shooter getting ousted. I then...

Re: VALIANT DECEMBER 2019 COMIC BOOK SALES!

Holy batman these numbers are terrible. I'm not going to touch if Valiant is lying about numbers beig up 10% or not because either way there is no way Valiant are happy with these numbers Visitor 1 - 7,550 - its more worrying that this was the highest number for valiant this month than its low for a...

Re: The Final Witness

I just posted about how I actually liked the teaser image in another thread then came here and saw that there were pages released too and now I'm down on the comic again. The pages look like a 2nd tier crossgen book by way of the low rate IDW look. And you know a comic is in trouble when the first p...

Re: Wish list creator dream teams?

What would be your dream team creators for Valiant? Mine: Mike Mignola & John Arcudi on Shadowman. Make it an amazing horror story with hero elements. Dark, dark, dark. Add Mambo to give it some additional flavor. And like so many Mignola stories, one of the supporting characters will get its own s...

Re: The Final Witness

Valiant's sales problems are largely from a contracting comic market rather than anything the company itself is doing. We're on the edge of another 90s-style collapse so they're diversifying the line to appeal to different demographics rather than relying solely on the same shrinking pool of buyers...
