Re: Bloodshot Salvation - Exclusive comic

Couldn't care less. Y'all need to learn how to read. I said I obviously want the books. My comment was on the wisdom and viability of requiring people to pay a year in advance. Didn't realize it would cause a *SQUEE* storm of *SQUEE* kissers rushing to pucker up. I thought we were having a discussio...

Carefulbwith the comments. You don't want to be accused of not supporting Valiant.

Re: Bloodshot Salvation - Exclusive comic

Really!? No one is forcing your hand. VEI is a business, first and foremost, no different from any other comic publisher out here. They come up with innovative ways to increase their profit margin, and stay out the red. Luckily for us, they actually put out quality comics while doing so, and on tim...

Re: Darth Vader #1

There's *another* Darth Vader series starting up? *Ugh* The first new Marvel Vader series was really quite good, I enjoyed the full run of it. I was buying it and the main SW comic for the first 2-ish years, but found the quality of the main SW comic was dipping & once the first DV comic ended I dr...

Re: Bloodshot Salvation - Exclusive comic

It's a little bit of a bummer to have to pay for all 12 at once. That feels like a forced feeding. Obviously I want the books and the extra content, but paying a year in advance is going to be a bridge too far for a lot of people. Some because they can't afford it as a one-time payment, and some for...

That's right. How could I forget Bloodshot's Day Off? Thanks, man.

Re: Rai and the History of the Valiant Universe Preview

Looks great. Really looking forward to this one. Past two weeks have been rough with only 1 Valiant release. Some good 'ol Rai is just what the doctor ordered.
Does anybody know what the 4th and final icons 1-shot is?

Darth Vader #1

Anybody else pick this one up today? Damn it's good.

Re: Heiserer on Secret Weapons

I also noticed that the colorist on this book is making some really bold choices with the pinkish tones everywhere. Pretty cool. Raul Allen does all the art, penciling, inking and coloring. Similar to Kano. If you haven't yet definitely check out his art on WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR, it's amazin...

Re: Heiserer on Secret Weapons

Strong black female lead, one of the most original takes on the x-men/harbinger idea, and written by an Oscar nominated writer? Yeah, sounds like a dud. What's not to love? In terms of other media, specifically film, I could see SW as having the most mass appeal for all the reasons I just listed. Th...

Re: Bloodshot Movie Rumors

I don't think anyone is expecting an Oscar to come out of Bloodshot. I just want the movies to be good and successful at the box office so more get made. Maybe that means big names, maybe it means unknowns. There's a lot more that goes into a film than who is cast in the roles. The script and direc...

Re: Bloodshot Movie Rumors

I was watching the 2016 Valiant Summit last night on YouTube. One thing that Dinesh said stuck out for me. He said that this info about the movies wouldn't have even been public yet if not for the North Korea Sony hack of a few years ago. That really bummed me out. If these films ever get made, it w...

On the cover? Or inside the book?
I was listening to one of the Valiant podcasts, and apparently there was some confusion on that question.

I would really like to know what the difference will be - its doubtful my shop will have very many copies of the book to check for a chance at the uber secret version. I agree. Same at my LCS. I think I'm going to ask the owner about it this week when I get my Wednesday Valiants. Hopefully it's som...

Re: Bloodshot Movie Rumors

.........viewers don't walk in with pre-conceived expectations. But with an unknown they also might not walk in at all . It's definitely a risk to cast an unknown. I want this film to not only be good, but to also be monetarily successful. Star vs Unknown is a tough call. Your point about the lack ...
