XO #2 yes
Final Witness #1 yes (high hopes for this one)
The Visitor #5 yes
Rai #6 yes

Dr Tomorrow #3 - waiting to see what #1 is like
Bloodshot #8 - nah done with this
Quantum & Woody #4 - unlikely unless this mini gets rave reviews but comedy books are not my cuppa tea

NEWS FLASH: Dallow is going to buy one of Antos's books.
If you're not a *SQUEE*, you're okay with me.

For sure:
Rai 6 (holy *SQUEE* Ryp is still on pencils)
The Final Witness 1 (looks great, but more electric superpowers? Seems a little Visitor-y)

Most likely:
X-O Manowar 2
The Visitor 5

Probably:
Doctor Tomorrow 3
Quantum & Woody! 4
Bloodshot 8 (might drop this after #0)

It's not personal. Maybe this one will be good. We hope that every time.

Exactly this! I don’t want Antos to fail because a) I’ve got nothing against her as a person (I just disagree with her woke politics)
b) if she fails it’s bad for Valiant

If the current crew start churning out quality books from quality creative teams then I’m all on board, they haven’t yet but hope springs eternal :hope:

Also it’s not that big of a news flash as I put my pounds down for 11 out 12 Livewire books :P

It looks like some of the titles will have 1:20 and 1:25 ratio variants available.

If the cover direction was for generic action or standing poses, the more generic the better, the cover artists succeeded brilliantly. I hope somebody is keeping track of the number of X-O covers where's he's posing generically with the silly light sword. 100 by now? 200? Another month of meh. Pass

Quoted for truth. Seriously generic covers greatly outnumber the few that have a bit of dramatic atmosphere to them. Is anyone paying attention to this trend? Who thinks its such a good idea that all these samey images keep getting approved?

And XO was delayed a few months to ‘get it right’ so there’s no reason why the covers can’t reflect the storyline if they’re been working so far in advance?

You guys really need to lower your expectations.

It'd be much worse if there was more storyline on the covers than inside the books. :D
