You Might Be A Valiant Fan...

Post by greg »

In the spirit of Jeff Foxworthy's You Might Be A Redneck... I thought we might throw out some ways to know if You Might Be A Valiant Fan.

If you've ever seen the cover of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #1 and thought it was Harbinger #13 ... you might be a Valiant fan.

If you've ever mentally compared a sunset to the cover of Harbinger #0 pink ... you might be a Valiant fan.

If you've ever bought a 25 year old comic book monthly price guide because it had a partial image of a Unity book ... you might be a Valiant fan.

If you've ever gotten excited seeing Dinesh's name in the news, only to be disappointed because it was Dinesh D'Souza ... you might be a Valiant fan.

If you've ever typed "Teenage Mutant Ninjak Turtles" ... you might be a Valiant fan.

Haha,
Lightening literally just struck near me ... and I thought of Harbinger #3 1:20 (Zircher)
Does that count?

That has happened to me, 'Dino' does that too, even though I doubt any reputable news source would refer to him as Dino.

You might be a Valiant fan if every time you hear the Imagine Dragons song "Radioactive" you think, "man, this would have been an awesome song to have used in a Solar Man of the Atom movie"

If you've ever watched "The Titan" on Netflix, and the only thing you took away from that movie is that the kid had X-O Manowar and Harbinger pictures on his wall... You might be a Valiant Fan

If you've ever been yelled at by Jim Starlin because you asked him to sign a copy of his own Unity 2000 cover ... you might be a Valiant fan.

Funny stuff sir.

I can say yes to the first 4. It would probably be a full sweep but I've never typed out Teenage Mutant Ninjak Turtles until just now.

If you don't think of the word "unity" in the way that the average person does, you might be a Valiant fan.

If you refer to the act of wearing a Valiant shirt to a comic convention as "throwing on my colours", you might be a Valiant fan.

I named my daughter Rylie, mostly after her great-great-grandfather, but also because it means "Valiant One"
Her nickname is Ry (Rai) for short. 8-)
