Re: BAD IDEA

humm... Heres an idea. Have the direct order system to reduce trees, extra comics, etc. But since people will be wanting to glance at one before they buy it (kinda like seeing it on the shelf and glancing thru it), have the first 5 pages on line for "glancing". You could see the art and part of the ...

Re: "today's 14 year olds don't care one twit about comics"

With the amount of people looking into the sustainability of a product as far as the climate is concerned, I would expect more and more people to use digital comic services. If they can read something without it being printed (thereby cutting down trees), they will. I fully expect people to read the...

Re: Let’s talk solutions to fix Valiant!

Granted I dont post much (hardly at all) so maybe I dont have the ins and outs of everything like others do. Some of the best comic storylines had writing AND art coming together to create that arc where people couldnt wait for the next one to come out. One person that can do both of those do show u...

Re: Official Bloodshot Trailer is here!

Do we know if Bloodshot is going to have any of the visual cues to identify him as Bloodshot? We know he is bald, but will he have white skin? It doesn’t appear so based on the trailer. Hopefully he’ll have the red circle on his chest. My only concern is people will just see this as another Vin Die...

Re: WTS different items

The Raphael one does have wrinkles on the top. Its due to it being bigger than normal size and not fitting to well in the sleeves.
I do have one of those hard plastic sleeves in with it.

Re: DBS’s “VEI Top 10” - October 2019

I think my eyes are getting old. I actually thought that it read; "20 covers" for the comic. Did it have a feature where you could change the cover to a different one? Or order the cover you wanted? Or maybe the price goes up with each cover "level"? All the $1 comics have cover"A", the $1.50 have c...

Re: I might be out on Valiant

Just pick the one (or 2) variant with the cover you like. If they are done by different people, that helps companies know which artists can be hired for a book. Sure sounds like a good way to select the people to work on issues or new books. Have Variant covers made by "up and coming guest" artists ...
