No virtual VF.com Poker Night?
We did a Zoom call but we got to chatting too much and forgot to play poker.
Sounds like you guys got the important part taken care of.

Greg cheats at on-line poker anyway.

Re: Valiant and CGC red labels (pre-2002) - how many remain?

It would be interesting to find extant red label slabs with comics of different eras to see how they've held up. Good controls for when (if) it's time to re-slab a book.

Re: SHADOWMAN RETURNS APRIL 2021

Acheson was not directly a Soviet agent; he was played for a fool by them, thus being a stooge for the commies, or maybe even a stooge of the commie stooges. Agents like Alger Hiss. Much of this was disclosed in the Venona Papers. One would think a last name like "Hiss" to be a liability for a spy.

Re: SHADOWMAN RETURNS APRIL 2021

Huh. I just figured comics were starting to suck because I was getting older. There's just not much coming to life where most of the new writer's work meets me when I read. I've also made a point to try not to project what I don't like about myself onto others or at least recognize I'm doing it when...

Is that supposed to be a left-wing Steve Ditko? :lol: Regardless, my Silver and Bronze age geek-self loves to see facsimiles of real-world creators integrated into the stories they had a connection to.

Re: Why did VEI take the chinese money?

It's a frikkin tower of cards... So much of it is, right? Plus, we have to decide whether to make policy that is best for those living today versus what is best for those in the future. Of course, there's also the conceit that there is one stationary policy that is "right." To me, it seems quite po...
