June 9, 1999

Post by greg »

Twenty years ago today, with the end of Valiant 3 years earlier and obvious problems at Acclaim, I decided my little Valiant website for online fans needed a better web address than the original... http://www.flash.net/~gholla/valiant.html

... so I registered a "dot com" and moved the site to its new home.

ValiantComics.com was born June 9, 1999.

If I win an argument, it doesn't mean I'm right. It means I'm a better arguer.

In addition, I'm right.

Your hobby has given me a home to post about comics for many years now. It's honestly one of the only comic book forums I post on anymore. Thanks Greg. :thumb:

This was the first forum I ever joined. I thought it was a little weird talking to strangers on the internets about comic books but I'm starting to come around. :? :thumb:

That's because you just want a goat on a first name basis with the Legion of Super-Heroes.

That was what I initially thought the post was going to be about as well.
