I started reading comic books when I was 11 or 12 in the early 90's. I picked up a copy of Bloodshot #8 from my next door neighbor. It was downhill from there. I managed to collect the entire run of Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps. Two of the greatest titles ever written. My dad confiscated H.A.R.D. Corps #2 when he saw Big Boy's head exploding. I was too young and poor to get my hands on the pre-Unity books, so I've still never read them. I live in San Diego, and have gone to the Comic-Con every year for 10+ years. Before finding out he was gay, I painted my arm gold and went as Ken from X-O to the Con. My love of comics ended when Acclaim bought out Valiant. What a shame.

You are in for a treat. :thumb:

Pick up the trade paperbacks for under cover price...
they should be "somewhere" in that great hall in San Diego.

Harbinger #1-#4 (all-in-one), called "Children of the Eighth Day"
X-O Manowar #1-#4 "Retribution"
Rai #1-#4
Shadowman #1-#3 and #6
Valiant Era (reprints some 1992 books)
Unity Saga I, II, III, and IV

If you see them, also go for:
Magnus #1-#4 (Steel Nation)
Magnus #5-#8 (Invasion)
Solar #0 (Alpha & Omega) reprints the inserts from Solar #1-#10
Solar Second Death (reprints the regular stories from Solar #1-#4)

Here's a quick-printing "Cheat Sheet" of some fair prices for Valiant books...
assuming "near mint" condition and buying them in person. :thumb:

Hmm.... that has to be a first. If he thought that was bad your Dad would have really hated some of those bad girl books by other publishers from the
90's.

Welcome aboard.

When I first saw "Blood Of Heroes", I thought the old poster Blood of Heroes might have come back. I wonder whatever happened with him? He has this Bloodshot web site, for any who have never seen it:

That's right, now I remember his name... :!:

He used to have some major debates with MOTA, mainly because MOTA loved to trash VH2 which Blood Of Heroes was a fan of. That's why I laugh when I see people feeling pity for MOTA for being suspended. It's not like it was the first time he has flipped out on this board.
