VALIANT FCBD 2020...Possible SPOILER!!!

Post by BugsySig »

I won’t post it in writing here, but you can click the link for info on VALIANT’s FCBD 2020 book and a potentially big SPOILER for future plans:

https://bleedingcool.com/comics/is-vali ... y-in-2021/

I’m the end, it’s just a tease, but could offer some old diehards something to grasp onto...or trash, I’m sure.

I agree. With just an homage image to go with it. Could be a Divinity mini, a big X-over event, and/or a line-wide reboot a la Solar creating the “original” VALIANT Universe.

Dinesh was very clear that Valiant was on the verge of much bigger things when he was pushed out of the company.

"Bigger" wouldn't exactly be the return of Divinity, since VEI started Divinity.
"Bigger" might be the return of something... bigger.
"Much bigger" would need to be the return of... much bigger.

Somehow I am not enthusiastic to see what the DMG people do with Solar.

Although a sub-plot where Albert is a dastardly science denier does seem kinda funny to me.

At this point, I’d settle for the most basic of expectations...decent writer + decent artist + A level character

Aside from Rai and the obvious LADOTH, this has been in short supply and no signs of it anytime soon!

Nor am I. If this had happened under Dinesh’s time at Valiant I would have been incredibly excited. This Valiant just doesn’t bring the same excitement. I would feel worse if this was put in motion due to him, but for all we know it is not what we think.

You think they might be teasing chocolate chip cookies and they're going to serve us raisins?

That would, indeed, be unforgivable. :sumo:

I know they were finalizing a crossover with the Gold Key characters so this could have something to do with that.

I hope not.

What Dynamite losing support left and right for there support of Comicsgate it's not the right time for this to be announced.

Timing is everything and the timing on it couldn't be worse (if this is what it will be)

That's a hell of a teaser!

Either this is going to be awesome or very disappointing--no matter who's the featured character.

By the way, who is "the" Harbinger this time? Any guesses? This doesn't look like Pete.

Do you mean "the" Visitor?

He looks like he could be a young Harada, so maybe a clone of Harada? Maybe "the Rai prototype"... something like that. :hm:

Yeah, the Visitor comes to mind as well.

I'm sure they come up with some spectacular stuff that will blow our minds. :lol:

Definitely Divinity, the Unknown, and David Camp.

If it was about the Man in the Red Suit why would the teaser be all blue?

When I first saw the teaser page, all I thought was it was just another case of DMG mining the Valiant IP for everything they can get.

I have to admit I feel a little ashamed that it didn't dawn on me the ad *might* be teasing a crossover. The idea that the Valiant Universe isn't the ...ahem... Alpha and Omega... certainly suggests such a thing but like I said it hadn't dawned on me until this
I've been looking everywhere for the ultra-rare Turok vs Blister issue. Anybody able to help me out?
