Congratulations!

This is a wonderful place that has kept the Valiant spark alive for many years even when the industry had all but forgotten and dismissed Valiant as a 90's universe that was long dead. Huge kudos to Greg and the dedicated fanbase who kept the spark and the love alive for Valiant.

And just from an aesthetic and user friendly standpoint its very well maintained, informative, clean (not flashy), well run site and message board that is awesomely addictive.

Thanks Greg! :high-five:

You rock! :headbang:

True .. That's why I would be a terrible web designer. It would be a gaudy hot mess and take 10 hours to load a page. :oops:

Anyway, Shouldn't you be hard at work planning your Canadian invasion? :?

If he's invading the French part of Canada all he has to "plan" is whether to say, "This is an invasion" in English or French. Either way, the invasion will be successful.

Congrats. One thing I've noticed is how overall people on here are very friendly and respectful to each other. Unlike the flame wars one sees on other message boards. So I just want to say great job to everyone that makes this possible.

So, no special comic to commemorate the event? :D

Did the message board really not start until 2002?

This is my favorite and only hangout on the web.

Thanks, Greg.

Thanks to Zach from Day Dreams Comics for telling me about this website. Greg you have built something great and you should be proud of what you have accomplished. :clap:

Without this site, I could have never learned about all things Valiant and I would have missed out on some great friendships. :thumb:

Thanks Greg! Here's to the next ten years! :)

Now it's ten years (and a few minutes) since I signed up. Tried to get the same time stamp in my profile and on this post, but got stuck with a leaking dish washer.

I discovered the site whilst I was trying to find a comprehensive list of Shadowman comics so that I knew what to look for and buy. Took some notes, didn't think much of it other than "That was handy".

Then Phantom told me the forum was cool. Looks like he was right!

Thanks Greg for enabling Valiant readers from around the globe connect, debate, argue, poke fun at each other etc etc! Having this community makes reading Valiant comics that bit more enjoyable as reading VH1 in the UK back in the 90's was a lonely road!

Congrats!! :thumb: :clap:
