Valiant fan since: 1994
Favorite character: Gilad Anni-Padda
Favorite title: Eternal Warrior
I was living in Texas at the time because my dad was stationed at Fort Hood. Grew up as an Army brat and then ended up joining the military myself, instead going Air Force in 2007. Well back in the summer of 1995 my buddies dad somehow acquired a huge lot of Valiant comic books. I had no idea what they really were except they had the same symbol as my WWF illustrated action books.

WWF Ultimate Warrior's Workout
WWF Lifestyles of the Brutal and Infamous -- I later got personally autographed by Ted DiBiase
WWF Out of the Ring Challenges
WWF Wait till I get my hands on...

Anyways he had a whole box full of these comics and my buddy said I could have any doubles or ones that caught my eye. I remember seeing a bunch of Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Archer & Armstrong and Ninjak. Well at least those were the ones catching my eye. I ended up getting around twenty or so of them and absolutely loved them.

Fast forward Seventeen years later...

I am watching Big Bang Theory and their interest in comics sparked my interest in finding my old comics from when I was a kid. Come to find out since we had moved so many times my wife had "accidentally" thrown them out. Luckily that was all she threw out that I know of. My sports card collection is still intact. We end up taking a trip to the local comic book store and they have no valiant at all, and upon further internet searching the company had gone out of business but was on the verge of coming back.

So as of a couple months ago I started buying the complete series of all the comics I loved when I was a kid to get prepared for the re-release of all my favorite characters. So far I know I will be seeing Bloodshot and Archer & Armstrong for sure. Some are hinting that Eternal Warrior will be back as well, have not heard anything on Ninjak.

So here I am twenty-six years old and falling back in love with Valiant all over again.
