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

The dollar books are curious. Why sell cheap books for dead titles? Does it spur TPB sales? I don't get it.

Also confused by these. Maybe to make up the numbers while they build new launches? It's been a long time since Valiant started a true ongoing series. Was Ninja-k the last one? Does Shadowman count? I know they announced 5 story arcs for that one but with the new valiant cancelling the book early does it count?

Putting out dollar books for previous #1s on apparently-dead titles seemingly does make no sense.

But that’s only because we haven’t gotten the press announcements yet for these future plans. These are the new dollar books that I am aware of with the corresponding return series:

Wrath of the Eternal Warrior—Incursion
XO Manowar 2017—XO Manowar 2019
Divinity—????

I don’t know about you, but it’s that last one that has me checking daily for press announcements from Valiant!

I pre-ordered 25 copies of Divinity #1 (2019 One Dollar Debut) to ensure I have at least 1-2 submission candidates for a 9.8.

The remaining copies will be given out for free at my office.

Great idea!

I have not tracked the release of one-dollar debuts in the past, but I’m pretty sure the XO Manowar (2017) $1 debut solicitation occurred just before the flash of a promotional image from a new XO series. The $1 Wrath similarly corresponds with Incursion.

Implausible as it seems, I think this can be seen as implying that a new Divinity series or mini might be on the way.

My thinking is that the ready presence of $1 books on racks may stimulate trade sales for some of the highest quality Valiant series, and more importantly, build excitement for a new series.

Toyo Harada and Fallen World should be good, but that's it for me unless there is some X-O stuff coming.
