I was blessed to get to tell my story in an article for comic book invest. I am a long time collector and speculator. I have always been intimidated by Valiants vast universe. I got to spend some time with Dinesh and his staff and they really won me over.

I read this and found it a great deal of fun. I've watched others become fans, but seeing it from a speculators perspective is totally different.

Welcome to the boards, happy hunting!

Welcome... Enjoy the boards!

Guys! Is it me or is everyone missing something here? Or have I missed this somewhere?

He claims that Valiant only gives out the variants that are EARNED.. The rest (minus a few) are later destroyed to stay true to the collector/speculator....

Isn't that the first time they have actually admitted that?

You know, you could be right. I've never heard it from that angle, which means numbers would be lower than reported, somewhere close to the actual issued number.....

Actually Moose... I think it is NOT somewhere close to the actual issued number, but instead significantly lower. How many store order 20 or 50 issues that are required to get the variant? From my experience... Well I'm still waiting to walk into ANY shop that would qualify. Every single shop I have been into just has a couple of copies... If that. So if Dinesh is giving us some pertinent info... Then he is saying numbers are lower due to destroying a bunch of the variants because stores didn't meet requirements.

:?

Hope this is true...

Rico
