Re: XO Manowar [2020] #1 Discussion

Now it’s my turn to comment this - wow, no one wants to discuss the new XO, eh? Timing is bad of course, with the pandemic and the self-isolating and all the shutdown/lockdown activity happening, etc. I’ve read the issue and I think it’s absolutely atrocious, and a disgraceful entry in the XO/Valia...

Re: Decision by publishers to suspend digital new releases...

I've always viewed the term "floppies" as a pejorative that came around during the "wait for the trade!" era of BS. When you correlate the term with that era that it started being used, it's pretty clear that was pejorative marketing so as to leave a small queue in the minds of collectors during tha...

Re: OTV/VCR - Bloodshot Movie Review

So I finally sat down to watch this - the launch of the Valiant U on film and I think this can be kept pretty short. It's not a bad movie at all. But there was no way this flick, even in a good movie-going economy, was going to launch a Universe on film. It lacks iconic archetypes completely. It's a...

That's probably a Ben Mendhelson article.

Re: Estimate Print run of Eniac 1 (of 4) #Badidea

If so, the print run of ENIAC #1 (and all early Bad Idea books) would need to have lots of extras built in for fut...

Re: The Bloodshot Movie Reviews are in...

I haven't seen it yet, but I'd be less disappointed in a mediocre Bloodshot movie on it's own merits than I would be in having a mediocre Bloodshot movie not carry a planned Valiant franchise like it was supposed to. That's not an observation of quality - I haven't seen it. I'm just responding to wh...

Sooooo disappointed by this. I've waited for a 9.8 slab of this book to come to market for years now . This sale just wrapped up and I got sniped on it at the last second. I honestly can't believe what it sold for, but I chaulk this up to MCU speculation about Frankie Raye 1st and the Quantum bands ...

Is Geoff Johns still a creative force there? He might not be bad as publisher or they should try and get Karen Burger back. Why they ever left her leave is beyond me.
