How the Valiant Characters stole my heart....

Post by Jarhara »

I never was much of a comic collector but I always liked reading them and while I am interested in Marvel and DC, I never had the motivation to pick up any of their comics. (that said, I live in Germany where single issue comics aren’t as big of a thing).
So, up until very recently, my entire collection of comics consisted of 3 TPBs of The Darkness and two books (Johnny the homocidal maniac and Squee) by Jhonen Vasquez.

And then Valiant happened….

Like I said before, I didn’t read Marvel and DC but I did watch them and I really liked Arrow, and most of all, I loved Michael Rowe as Deadshot.
As you might already have guessed, when I heard of a superhero show with him playing the main character, I was just thrilled.

I already knew Bat in the Sun thanks to a friend so I knew that Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe would be a little cheesy or trashy. But I do like trash if it’s got some heart.
And, what should I say?
I immediately fell in love with most of the characters. So I got myself some comics, red some online and flash forward to today where I own probably around 20 Valiant TPBs and a small collection of other merch (some of it selfmade as there is already not that much that you can buy and the shipping on the official Valiant Store is killing me)
So, long story short… Valiant stole my heart and turned me into a bit of a comic collector…..

(BTW, I am also a cosplayer and I did a few Valiant characters but I guess I’m gonna show all that once I open up a collection topic.)

First, welcome to the page! Glad you found us!

Second, there are a few of us here that just read Trades, there's nothing at all wrong with that. Participate where you can/want, and just simply have fun!
