Will be posting another update later today.

If you had been thinking about doing some reviews but haven't quite got to them, it'd be great to add them to the updated total later today :hm:

Thanks to EVERYONE for helping out with this. It DOES make a positive difference to VEI! :thumb:

These 29 TPBs now have a total of 86 reviews. When we started this push, it was only 57 reviews which is an increase of 47% :o

Great work by everyone so far. Let's see how quickly we can get this group of TPBs up over 100 reviews! :high-five:

UPDATE:

We are now at 88 reviews for this group of TPBs! That's a great increase from what we started at. Still hoping members who said they'd help out can get some more posted so that we get this group over 100 reviews soon :thumb: :thumb:

Thanks for all for their continued help with this :clap:

Sorry Bruce, I thought this would be easy for me to catch up on but I've just got a *SQUEE* ton of university work on at the moment. I've literally spent *all* weekend working on it.

I expect I'll catch up with this in the end but it's probably not going to be for quite some time yet.

No need for apologies. We all can only do what we can in the context of all our life events. All efforts by everyone are always most appreciated! :thumb:

Although not specifically VEI, I thought I would point out that Q2: The Return of Quantum and Woody still has 0 reviews.

Also, the recent Shadowman collection (Ennis & Wood) has only a single review.

There are other TPBs which don't have a single review yet also. Plus, all the ones on this list could benefit from more reviews from members. TPBs are a big help to VEI's sales and there seems to be a direct correlation between more reviews and more sales so we always like to try and help out Dinesh and crew by giving as much support through these reviews as possible :thumb:

I posted this in the other thread, but thought I'd take the time to re-post here. The Savage TPB is now shipping from Amazon. It would be great to get some reviews added for both it and Britannia as those are new books that are potentially good jumping on points to Valiant for new readers. As of now, Savage has only 2 reviews and Britannia has only 10.

Great! Savage is now up to 11 reviews and Britannia at 13.

If others haven't written reviews for those books yet, please consider doing so (or any other Valiant trades).

I've edited this post to include some additional info, further separate out many of the TPBs by tiers, and tag those that are available to either Kindle Unlimited subscribers or Amazon Prime subscribers through Prime Reading. I've also added direct links to make it easier for folks to find these books on Amazon in order to submit reviews. As mentioned elsewhere in this thread, adding these reviews has the potential to greatly help out Valiant and also encourage new readers to take a chance on reading some of these books.

Books marked with a single asterisk (*) are available to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. Items marked with a double asterisk (**) are available to anyone with a Prime Membership to access via Prime Reading.

There are a few TPBs that have now exceeded the 100 review goal, but they could always use additional reviews if folks are willing! Many of these books are often in the top 100 list on Amazon in the Comics and Graphic Novels category, so adding reviews is a great way to help them move up the chart and hopefully entice comics readers to give them a shot.

The books already above 100 reviews include:

*X-O Manowar Volume 1 (By the Sword) -- 138 reviews
*Bloodshot Volume 1 (Setting The World on Fire) -- 121 reviews
Harbinger Volume 1 (Omega Rising) -- 104 reviews

There are three more books that are very close to breaking the 100 review mark:

The Valiant -- 88 reviews
Archer & Armstrong Volume 1 (The Michelangelo Code) -- 88 reviews
*X-O Manowar Volume 2 (Enter Ninjak) -- 84 reviews

Several more that are within reach of the 100 review mark:

Shadowman Volume 1 (Birth Rites) -- 79 reviews
Divinity Volume 1 -- 78 reviews
Harbinger Volume 2 (Renegades) -- 73 reviews

Quite a few that have exceeded 50 Reviews but could use a lot more:

*Bloodshot Volume 2 (The Rise and the Fall) -- 66 reviews
**Unity Volume 1 (To Kill A King) -- 66 reviews
Archer & Armstrong Volume 2 (Wrath of the Eternal Warrior) -- 62 reviews
*X-O Manowar Volume 3 (Planet Death) -- 62 reviews
*Quantum and Woody Volume 1 (The World's Worst Superhero Team) -- 57 reviews
Faith volume 1 -- 54 reviews
Eternal Warrior Volume 1 (Sword of the Wild) -- 50 reviews

A few books just shy of breaking the 50 review mark:

Harbinger Wars Volume 1-- 47 reviews
Harbinger Volume 3 (Harbinger Wars) -- 46 reviews
Shadowman Volume 3 (Deadside Blues) -- 44 reviews
Bloodshot Volume 3 (Harbinger Wars) -- 44 reviews
Archer & Armstrong Volume 3 (Far, Faraway)-- 43 reviews
Quantum & Woody Volume 2 (In Security) -- 43 reviews
Eternal Warrior Volume 2 (Eternal Emperor) -- 43 reviews
Quantum and Woody Volume 2 (In Security) -- 43 reviews
*Shadowman Volume 2 (Darque Reckoning) -- 42 reviews
X-O Manowar Volume 4 (Homecoming) -- 41 reviews
Archer & Armstrong Volume 4 (Sect Civil War) -- 41 reviews
Rai Volume 1 (Welcome to New Japan) -- 40 reviews


Finally, quite a few other books with surprising few reviews that could use a bump:

*Ninjak Volume 1 (Weaponeer) -- 31 reviews
*Ivar, Timewalker Volume 1 (Making History) -- 20 reviews
*Death Defying Dr. Mirage Volume 1 -- 18 reviews
Britannia Volume 1 -- 14 reviews
Savage Volume 1 -- 13 reviews
Imperium Volume 1 (Collecting Monsters) -- 12 reviews
Divinity Volume 2 -- 11 reviews
Ninjak Volume 2 (The Shadow Wars) -- 10 reviews
Secret Weapons -- 7 Reviews
Death Defying Dr. Mirage Volume 2 -- 6 reviews

Just a quick message to bump this. Since the last post, several volumes have gained additional reviews and Faith Volume 1 has now hit the 50 review mark. The Valiant is now only 15 short of hitting 100.

Just a quick bump to encourage folks to write Amazon reviews if time permits. The potential of television series for Quantum and Woody and Dr. Mirage could bring attention (and potential readers) to those series, and all of those releases could use additional reviews to help bring in more potential readers. Similarly, with Harbinger Wars 2 upcoming, all of the trades from the first Harbinger Wars could use a bump. Also, The Valiant is only 14 reviews shy of cracking 100 now.

I've added links in the post above to make it easy for folks to find the books on Amazon and will eventually add more of the trades and think of other ways to organize the links to make it easier for folks to contribute.

For anyone interested, the new Shadowman (2018) volume 1 (Fear of the Dark) is now out and could use reviews. Lots of other Valiant books could as well. :thumb:
