Returning Valiant reader / aspiring collector

Post by Jerseydevil79 »

Hi everyone, I basically recently got back into collecting and reading Valiant after I picked up a copy of Magnus #1 (the early 90s one). For me as a kid at the time, it was one of those unattainable comics that I could never find or afford. So purely out of nostalgia (with maybe a little, "look at me, i finally got it!"), I picked one up and started paging through. I have to say that it still holds up, and to me is better than anything out there on the modern market. So now I'm enjoying the process of grabbing these (at the time of my childhood) near impossible to find Pre-Unity gems, and its a fun ride so far not only from a collecting point of view but also as an avid sci-fi reader. I'm glad to see that there's still a community around (and an extra kudos to the admin that put together the Valiant collecting guides on this site......great info!).

Look forward to interacting with you all.

-Mike

Thanks all. Checked another off the list with a nice raw Solar #10 1st print today…looking for the elusive Harbinger 1 next.
