Great podcast guys,

I recently discovered your casts from a Google search. Started with #1 and am currently up to about 74. My only complaint is listening to your reviews of the early books has made me want to go back and re-read them again :high-five:
Also your desert island cast was a great one, I found some interesting reading to go back and catch that I missed before. Just stated reading the Fables trades, then going to read Grendel, and based on Chiclo's constant praise I've got Moriarty lined up.

Thanks again and keep up the great work

For the first time, we broke with our strict format of only reviewing new comics on the latest episode of OTV: VCR [the Valiant Comics Review spin-off show] to take time to discuss the recent DMG takeover.

Have a listen below if you like [*SPOILER WARNING* - we do our review of the Armstrong Vault Of Spirits 1-shot first before discussing Dino & the DMG takeover];

There hasn't been an OTV proper in a while, but we've been still publishing Valiant Comics Review. The time has come, however, OTV is shutting the doors and sailing into the sunset.

All of the archives will remain, but we won't be publishing any more. OTV has been a constant fixture in my life for 12 years, it is nice to set it aside for now.

Thank you, to all of you who have listened over the years. Thanks for being a great community to be a part of.

Stay Valiant.

Amazing how time has flown - 12 years of OTV! I haven't heard them all (or all of the VCR), but the ones I heard were always entertaining! :high-five:

Huge shame OTV/VCR is no more, many hours of entertainment has been had from these guys over the years.

Huge thanks to Sean for making this happen for so long, you did an amazing job.

Same to all the presenters, great discussions and enhanced the reading experience 10 fold. OTV/VCR stands head and shoulders above other podcasts as you guys kept it real when it’s required.

And luckily it did not end with the "Curse of Valiant" one. At least you guys did one more.

Thanks for all the (not so) hard work, entertainment, and tons of information along the way.

I came in late in 2014, but I think I eventually got around to almost every OTV episode. I remember spending entire days catching up on old episodes. You guys were like a beacon of light when there was no one to talk to about Valiant. Even after the "podcast boom," no one topped OTV.

VCR has been my exclusive Valiant podcast for the past two years or so. I loved that you weren't afraid to let Valiant know when they were f***ing up. Special shout out to Chris from Calgary, who was a much needed (and usually hilarious) voice of dissent. Even when I disagreed with him, he usually made me think about it in a totally different light that I wouldn't have considered before.

Please, anyone that was involved in OTV or VCR, come back to this thread and let us know if you're going to be joining another podcast, or creating your own.

Hello fellow OTV/VCR/Valiant Fans!

When I learned that OTV/VCR was ending, I also felt sad as it's been a huge part of my Valiant (and comics) collecting life prior to, during and after being a co-host of OTV. We had some amazing podcasts and discussions with creators; it will be missed!

To answer Ferg's question, I have been and am still involved with my band "A Dark Halo" creating new music, videos, etc. I will also be releasing more solo music later this year and next. If anyone is interested in seeing my bald, guitar-thrashing self with "A Dark Halo," a link to our music video for the song "I, Revenant" is here: https://youtu.be/YjhzOFTxGuo

To keep up with me, find "A Dark Halo" on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram and subscribe (on YouTube) to Heavy Armor Records.

Thanks for the memories Sean, C-Lo, Christian, Chris from Calgary, Zeph, Josh D., and the rest of the OTV/VCR fam!
The "Unity Suite" ... in progress ...

End of an era!! Very sad to see it go - despite my not being a regular host on VCR for quite some time now, I will always look back fondly on the time I spent making episodes with all you fine folks. It was the best of times...

Stay Valiant.
I want to add my deep thanks to the chorus. OTV and VCR both have meant a lot to me over the past few years. I hope the archives are available long enough for me to catch up! The bright side of your stopping is now I have a shot haha.

(In my listening order VEI hasn't even released XO yet. I listened to the new shows as they came out, but on the archives I have a way to go)

I'm still holding out hope that something will happen so incredibly awesome that you guys can't help yourselves but make new episodes.
I've been looking everywhere for the ultra-rare Turok vs Blister issue. Anybody able to help me out?
