Loved the Man of the Atom reference and Armstrong's reaction.
Anybody else think Armstrong had really tiny hands in that panel? Poor framing, poor artwork, I guess you could say.

And I just had no idea Eternal Warrior could fly

Aside from the cover, is it any different than any other Variant? Any reason it's a PREORDER EDITION? My LCS said pull list customers still receive A covers unless they requested different

Curious...did any filmmakers comment on how trailer gave the movie away?

Specifically there's people who've spoken to people like Dinesh...it seems to me they'd be livid the markets ruined (or at least hurt) the moviegoer experience. I personally chose to only watch that super quick first trailer that Dinesh teased way back when. I am glad I did. I watched the trailer af...

Re: Dan Abnett on Get Valiant #167 - June 27

I think he would be very capable of plotting an inter-connected Valiant universe while writing a book or two and editing other writers. He'd be the perfect guy to write another Unity book or to save X-O Manowar after 12 (8) "hopeless" issues. Something I realized, first we had buddy book ARCHER AND...

Re: Predator vs Magnus Robot Fighter tpb?

Thanks guys I hadn't realized this TPB existed. Im sure it's no rare information just news to me. What issues does it include? Just Mag v Pred #1 & #2? As published as original comics? That seems like it would make a thin TPB.

Why is no one talking about Dr Tmrw #3?!? It was AMAZING

I guess a review thread under published issues is the traditional response, but my question kinda supersedes a mere review. I don't think #3 is as good by itself, but the arc #1 to #3 makes the plot twist one of the biggest comic reading experiences I've ever had... congratulations Arbona! This is w...

Re: Has Your Favorite Character(s) Changed?

For me it is the same in both, Eternal Warrior. I haven't read too many VEI versions of EW but my favorite is still in AA Vol 2. My next favorite is when he confronts XO. The Unity version seems like more or less the same guy, I guess. EW: Sword of the Wild was really a big disappointment for me be...

Re: Why didn't Harada pop Gilad's head in Unity Vol 1 (VEI)?

Have you thought about what part Gilad might have in Harada's plans? In VH1 a big part of Rai Zero was Harada's desperate quest for immortality or at least a way to continue living. Maybe ... Harada was planning to "study" EW? I like the idea of Harada trying to tap into Gilad's immortality and rep...

Re: Why didn't Harada pop Gilad's head in Unity Vol 1 (VEI)?

My best attempt to logically justify Harada allowing Gilad to live ... It sounds to me like you agree with me that Harada "with his skill set" could find a way to permanently kill EW, head explosions or something else. I was trying to remember. Do you have good evidence that VEI EW can be permanent...

Re: Why didn't Harada pop Gilad's head in Unity Vol 1 (VEI)?

My best attempt to logically justify Harada allowing Gilad to live would be that Harada telepathically realized the amount of history Gilad has lived through and believes that Gilad's historical and tactical knowledge might be useful to his plans somehow in the future. It's the only reason I can im...

That Deadside stuff is part of EW lore I've never heard before. What TPB is that in? So, Gilad has actually die...

You are referring to Unity #2 and #4, right? Yes. And I agree that killing off Ninjak in a showdown with Harada would have been awesome, unforgettable, ballsy, unexpected, and would have cemented Valiant as a different breed of comic...both in terms of serious mature storytelling but also a publish...

Why didn't Harada pop Gilad's head in Unity Vol 1 (VEI)?

I've been watching what Harada does to the Visigoths that he fights. He just exploded their heads. A pretty effective and direct and quick solution. He also does something similar to Maniac in (Bloodshot and HARD Corps.) Then, in the fourth chapter, Harada fights with Gilad Ninjak and Livewire. Hara...

The reason I ask is I am at work bored and had a thought. Ever since I learned about the difference between VH1 and VH2 I got the feeling the Turok video games (at least the original three) were basically VH2. But today at work it occurred to me that I've only seen The Campaigner in VH1 Birthquake. ...

Re: Resuming Valiant reading and now heartbroken?

Usually Dan Abnett is working on and writing several stories at a time. And also writing novels. Yes, of course. This guy's a genius. I wish he was in charge of X-O Manowar. THIS!!!! Even if I'm not thrilled with his Dejah story, I can tell he's good at an "immersive" reading experience.

IMHO the first arc is the least interesting here.
Are you talking the first part of AA Romace or AA In the Bag or AA Michaelangelo Code?
