Here's a link to ALL episodes of VCR & OTV on one master page, for anyone who doesn't look in the comics discussion threads on the board (I try to post individual episode links in there for each book released).
:high-five:

I know it's a tall order and a selfish wish, but i'd love to hear you guys speak on a monthly basis making some sort of revision for that month. I can not keep up with weekly pods, sadly.

Keep up the Excellent Work, Gang!!!!
We can barely keep up with weekly podcasts either! Some weeks it's been released just in time by the skin of our teeth :lol: :lol:

It's not like a continuous story though - you can miss as many as you want without worrying about not following what we're talking about (as long as you've read the books :wink: ). Maybe try tuning in to the odd one that features a book you really liked? (I know, most of us here like *all* the Valiant books)

Having said all that, we do have some plans to attempt a special VCR recording at some point in the future. Can't say what for, but it'll be cool if it happens!

And you're all doing s great job too! Enthusiasm levels right up there and interesting discussion each week! Why does it have to keep to 1 hour? Stop restricting Chris when he's on a roll!! :wink: :lol:

:thumb:
Thanks man, glad someone listens to us! :P

Seriously though, really appreciate the support - we try to keep it to under an hour just so people aren't turned off by the length of each episode. I really have no idea how many people actually tune into it though, so I don't know if it makes any difference in attracting (and keeping) listeners.

It's pretty tough to keep it close to an hour on weeks where there are three new books though, so much to discuss!

I say go as long as you like! Don't let Sean boss you Canadians around! :P

I thought you guys got data on podcast downloads? I'm sure I've heard Martin on Valiant Central mention this?

Anyway, we appreciate you keeping OTV going. :high-five:

As a side note does Chiclo still read Valiant of has he lost his Valiant mojo?

We've got a new episode!

Only The Valiant 213

We take a (mostly) non-spoiler look at X-O Manowar #1, we discuss the Bloodshot Director announcement, and discuss the tentpoles of the Valiant Universe, and what this tells us about the shifting tides at Valiant.

Also, a giveaway, Ask Chiclo, and a whole lot more.

Bumping this to promote a brand new Valiant After Dark episode. Listening now, always love these gatherings with the OTV crew and the Valiant crew. Informative, as always, and the subtle teases great. Really appreciate pushing the guys to tie in Britannia to the Deadside and Savage to the Faraway

*edit* ... and finished listening. That was damn good stuff, guys. Even more stoked for the Summit and Free Comic Book Day after listening to this!
Good Morning, that's a nice tnetennba.

Listening now...

Am I right in hearing from the Poker Game that there was a Harbinger Wars 2 in those bagged preview issues, or was that just a joke?

--edit--

Great listen. Dinesh does not disappoint. Consider my enthusiasm for Harbinger Wars 2 now amped to 11!!

That was a joke. There was an add on the back of one of the books for Harbinger Wars 2, so when someone opened the bag and saw the back cover, they yelled out "Harbinger Wars 2"!

Sounds like Dysart's "continuation" to Harbinger/Imperium will (or would) be more than just a four-issue mini-series. It also sounds like it would not fit into the current status quo and may not come out before after HWARS2 which would be summer/fall 2018, or not at all. Who knows?

Great podcast!

Still listening to the interview with Dinesh on the train.

Yeah, I don't think we can take any of this as gospel about any new Dysart work may be coming out, but it nice to know he is indeed working on something, as has been hinted at.

It certainly is. It's great to hear he'll be back next year.
