Re: Plot Details And Character Breakdowns For Sony’s BLOODSH

So does anyone know for sure which name Bloodshot will have in the movie ? Will it be the VEI "Ray Garrison" or the VH1 "Angelo Mortalli" namesake? Pretty sure it's Ray. Or, it could be both. Remember the first few issues of VEI Bloodshot? He's under Rising Spirit control. They load him up with a n...

Re: Shadowman [2018] #4 Discussion

This was a great issue for me! Info on a past Shadowman, some tips and tricks that Jack can try to use to control the loa, and a possible new power of shadow-stepping to explore. Not bad at all. But I wanna see further back. I wanna see the history of the loa and what happened to get it banished fro...

Re: VALIANT APRIL 2018 SALES

Seems an odd decision to end Bloodshot given the decent numbers it’s still pulling in. I get that Lemire wanted to leave but why couldn’t they bring another writer to pick up from #13? :? Because #1 issues. Sadly, this is likely the truest answer. (and it's woken up the bee in my bonnet again, so h...

Re: Valiant Unveils a Slate of Four All-New Series

I'm not sold on the new Shadowman. There's been no hook yet. Maybe no hook that you've liked yet, but my hook for that series is the promise of finding out the history of the loa, and I'm more invested in Jack now than I was in the original series. He's been through some sh!t now, and he is ready t...

Re: Rate your trust, Vfans moderators vs other board moderat

I pretty much only go here or to r/Valiant on Reddit. I trust Greg here obviously. No number score needed, just a YES. And since I'm one of the mods on the reddit site, I can say I trust myself enough. Even if I do occasionally venture out into r/comicbooks or somewhere else, it would just be to bro...

Anotherrrrr backstory issue that doesn't move the story forward. Between this and Bloodshot Salvation, I swear.

Very good story & art. I'm loving the continued callbacks to the past (the 2 senior agents showing up and just getting put in their place by Alyssa). And it still feels like this is geared towards uncovering more of the history & mystery of Shadowman in order to solve both Jack's and his loa's issue...

Re: Poll to get a better feel for reboot support

Posted by Mel Caylo as a quote from Joe Illidge: "Everything will still be canon with the Valiant Universe. HARBINGER WARS 2 will lead to a thematic shift for the world, and the new status quo will build on everything that has come before since 2012." That tells me there is no reboot. Yep! Status q...

Sorry to hear that Atom! is gone, but glad that it sounds like something he wanted. Maybe he thought about leaving earlier, and the promotion was to try and keep him on longer? Who knows. It doesn't matter in the end. We'll miss you Atom! and thanks for all your hard work for Valiant!

Running this poll due to discussion in another thread about speculative universal reboots and how many support or oppose it. Trying to get more accurate data instead of citing just my memory of past conversations.

I really don't see them doing an actual 'reset'(reboot) of the universe, in whole, or in part. ("What do they have to lose?" some might ask. Oh, I dunno. Maybe a big chunk of the thousands of devoted fans that have followed this universe for 5 years+. And many of those that have been Valiant fans s...

During my conversations with Atom! and Mel at C2E2, it didn't seem like they were on a path to retcon the universe. But, it wouldn't shock me to see them retcon individual characters to fit into the film/TV path. That said, the new Shadowman sure feels like they have blanked out all of the story ar...
