My Story, Valiant pulling me back into the universe.

Post by Exquisimagic »

Hello friends,

My valiant story starts in the 90's. I was a wee lad about 12 years old working for my neighbor at a collectible show at Branham high school in San Jose, CA. One of the dealers across sold comic books with all sorts of early valiants. All of a sudden Rai #3 and #4 became extremely HOTT everyone noticed.

I played it cool and watched for a couple weekends and noticed new book after new book then Rai #0 appeared wow first valiant book I ever bought. The cover was absolutely amazing to me. I didn't own many comic books but this was easily my favorite. Surpassing new mutants 98, wildcats 1 & 2. I use to go to my moms work making copies of the cover to stick in my school binder. I really enjoyed the book. The following weekend I bought Rai #1.......then eternal warrior 4,5,6. I was fascinated by Master Darque. Then I bought Bloodshot 1 the day it came and all others following throughout high school.....

In my mid 20's I joined the old valiant fan site and that faded, now for some reason my mind is pulling me back into the universe......now I'm 39 and headed into mid life so here I am again. :D
