I’d buy it. :takeit:
Speaking of buying it, I received that survivalist shipment. The two backpacks were most of the order, but the other stuff was cool too.

Especially the flint lighter. And the pocket knife shaped like a key.

But it did arrive. And looks to be good. I was skeptical.

Re: Finally Read ALL of VH-1 XO

If you read all of XO then you ran across the issue with Blister, in the crossover with Shadowman. I think that was the character's only nonSM appearance. Can anyone confirm that? I'm pretty sure. Anyway, he was great, wasn't he? Sublimely preposterous supersoldier. I first encountered him via the X...

I cannot believe this "pinned" thread is still on page 1 (one)!

Q: Does Valiant Masters Rai include the flipbook stories?

If so, it's worth my time to make an extra effort to buy it.

But, the info I've seen makes me think the answer is no.
Just in case I'm mistaken...

Oh, and hi again. I've been away for a few weeks. Anything happened worthy of note?

Just impressed with a bit of Neil Gaiman Norse Mythology

I'm reading in the 2020 Dark Horse FCBD book, it's half of it.

Strikes me as almost non-fiction. Assuming it's faithfully retold. I had an illustrated Greek Myths book as a kid, and this really reminded me of that.

Re: WTB VH1 Deathmate

There is no difference in the content between the Deathmate golds and regular issues. Sean mentioned he read gold issues before our Deathmate episode.

Re: WTB VH1 Deathmate

I'm still trying to understand the Deathmate colors.

I would assume a Deathmate Gold, for instance, has the same content as some other issue, but is just a divergent color... intentionally?

I remember seeing online a Deathmate issue (epilogue I think it was) I mentally refer to as Deathmate Jade.
