I was in High School when Valiant came out. at the time i was buying mostly the 900 X-titles and Spider-man titles Marvel was putting out. Saw the Valiant books on the shelves but they didn't catch my attention until the original X-O #1 came out. It looked kinda cool so I picked it up and got hooked. Collecting everything Valiant became the center of my universe until I graduated in 94 then off to university. Then I was too poor to buy books and basically sold off everything in my collection in those next few years bc I needed the coin. Didn't buy anything comic book related again until mid 2000's when I started building up a GN/TPB collection of stuff that I loved to read. Along the way discovered some new stuff (new to me) like Preacher, Y the Last Man, 100 Bullets. Then one day a few weeks back i saw a twitter post talking about the return of Valiant and that a new X-O book was coming out. For the first time since the mid 90's I got super excited about buying a single issue comic book. I saw the previews and it looked badass. I discovered this board and the onlythevaliant podcast. then most importantly starting buying the new Valiant which has been absolutely amazing so far.Me personally I don't care how much VH1 continuity and stuff they stick with. I'm just happy that these awesome characters are back and their stories are in the hands of people not only doing justice to the originals but i think they are actually surpassing them. And I believe they'll continue to do so and the new Valiant will be around for the long haul.

Thanks i started with some TPB's I actually still had my copies of the Rai and Solar Alpha and Omega. Then at a local LCS i picked up Bloodshot #1 and the Magnus: Steel Nation TPB. That's all I got so far but it's a start.

Welcome to the board.

It's a shame you had to sell your books back then, but tracking them all down again can still be fun (especialy when you find a bargain). Good luck on the hunt.

Yeah it was a shame but the books def weren't priority at that time in my life. plus that's when stuff was really getting really really bad in the comic book world. I made a ton of profit on comics during those years so I have nothing to complain about.

and thanks for the welcome! the new valiant has been fun enough for me. i'll eventually try to rebuild my collection but the new stuff is like a dream come true so i'm happy.
