Favorite character: X-O Manowar
Favorite title: X-O Manowar
Favorite writer: Bob Layton
Favorite artist: Barry Windsor Smith
This weekend I attended a mini con at a library. There were a decent amount of comic dealers. No modern Valiant to be found and some with vintage stuff priced pretty close to the current going rates or even more (Magnus 12 for $40 anyone?). Right before I left I happened to stumble across one dealer's setup tucked away in a corner. For $1 each, I picked up the following:

X-O Manowar 1
X-O Manowar 4
Magnus Robot Fighter 0 (With Card)
Magnus Robot Fighter 0 (Without Card)
Magnus Robot Fighter 1 (NO COUPON)
Magnus Robot Fighter 2 (NO COUPON)
Bloodshot 1 (2 Copies Just 'cause)
Rai 0 (GLOSSY!)
Rai 2
Eternal Warrior 4
Deathmate Black (Gold Edition)
Solar: Man of the Atom 1
Harbinger 4 (With Coupon)

The Rai 0 and X-O 4 are 9.8 contenders with a press. The others had just enough flaws to probably put them into the VF/NM to NM range.

The moral of this story? Keep looking, because there are still bargains to be found in old school Valiant!

Especially "dude." And "balls." Those terms work in the tech industry.

Well done, man! I bought a short box worth of Valiant incentive variants at a con on Saturday. The price? $2 each.

Really nice finds

Every so often I find some stuff in the 25 cent box at a comic book store near me. They don't have a lot of Valiant customers, so most of the stuff from the 90s goes in that box. Over the last few months I've found

-Near complete run of Quantum & Woody (97 run) - was only missing issue 3
-Eternal Warrior 1 - 10
-Bloodshot 1-7
-Legend of the Geomancer 2 & 3 (couple copies of 2, all in 9.8 condition)
-Eternal Warrior 1 Gold (embossed)
-Archer & Armstrong 1-10

There were some other odds and ends throughout, but for only a quarter a piece, I couldn't pass most of these up, especially EW 4, EW 1 Gold, the Q&W stuff, or the Geomancer books

EW 1 embossed gold is a steal....

Yeah, I couldn't believe it. I mentioned it to the store owner who said it was probably put in there by error but since I am the only one who really buys his Valiant books he'd honor the placement and sell it to me for a quarter. The condition wasn't terrible, but probably only an 8.5, maybe a 9.2 with press.

Very cool of the store owner!
