Re: Is ENIAC #1 the best VALIANT issue since DMG took over?

Bad Idea would be like Valiant DMG if Valiant DMG cared about comics.

To celebrate the return of Dino, Warren, Kindt, Venditti, Braithwaite, and everyone else, I thought some polls would be fun! You can choose 2 options.
Wait was there an announcement?

Re: ENIAC #1

I was wondering where to post about this. It was absolutely great, maybe better than anything Kindt / Brathwaite did at Valiant (which I loved their work there). Can't wait for the next issue.

That B story with Lapham is quite a mystery too!

Who allowed 50 different fonts to be put into the dialogue on every page? It's so messy it's impossible to read just on that level and that's not even getting to the story.

Re: Bad Idea rubbing people wrong?

They underestimated how many people would be interested in this first print run of ENIAC and said it's going to be corrected for future books. It was too far in progress to change, from what Dinesh told me on stream. It's FOMO I think but they'll make up for it. Heck, just the quality of stories the...

Re: Bloodshot (2019) #1 discussion

I enjoyed the issue. Better action than the last series which was so tough to even read. Less detail attention to continuity so far, but whatever. I like Seeley writing personally so it reads like one of his books and that is enough for a 7/10 from me. I really don't think Valiant's going to ever be...

Re: Dr. Mirage returns!

Noticing a political pattern some of with Valiant’s recent hires, makes me question the motivation behind it? Once again this is not the hiring of top, established talent. Given the low number of books Valiant puts out you may be forgiven for thinking they’d go for a more tried and tested route. :?...

Re: New X-O MANOWAR Title's Creative Team & Launch Window

Matt Kindt and Tomas Giorello are brilliant level talent who have unique styles, voices, and visions. They just got replaced by the B-Team. I mean these guys are fine, they haven't done stuff on star wars I thought was obnoxious or offensive, but it's utterly safe and generic style from what I've se...

Re: Incursion #3 Discussion

Thoroughly enjoyable comic. Just pure fun. Not a ton of substance (issue 3 of 4 seems to usually be that way), but not bad. Diggle needs a little dialogue massaging so the characters don't all have "I'm a bad *SQUEE*... and I'm gonna say eff you" sort of feel to every single one of them, but still a...

Re: X-O Manowar [2017] #26 Discussion

Wrapped up pretty early then was some montagy stuff. Really wasn't a lot on the story end though the loose ends were all done nicely. I'll miss this series. Skeptical about the replacement team, seems a big downgrade. Wish we got a little more of Kindt doing this.

It definitely feels like everything's disconnected and meandering in directions. I'm pretty close to giving up on Valiant. I know a few good creators are coming but I'm not sure it's enough.
