Re: Previews VH2 "Starting Over" 7 Parter

Previews ran the 7 part "Starting Over" comic as an intro to the VH2 universe. It has never been reprinted to my knowledge and contains the first appearances of the VH2 characters Magnus, X-O, Ninjak, Ivar, Trinity Angels, and Bloodshot (with a partial Origin), as well as many secondary characters like Calamity's mother and Quantum and Woody's fathers.
Written by Tom Peyer, Penciled by Steven Butler (The only Valiant Universe Art by this great artist) and inked by Ray Kryssing. 26 pages of original story in all. It ran in Previews Vol.VI #8 (8/96)-Vol.VII #2 (2/97)
If this is already on the boards somewhere than I apologize for the duplication, but I do believe that the story, artists and writer should be added to the archive section. Thanks for the great site ! :thumb:
Yes, it is listed here:

But please feel free to let us know if you here about anything else. :thumb:

Now I wouldn't mind finding a stapled copy of this issue as well...anyone have one to trade? Part 1 of 'Starting Over' is in this same issue.
Very cool, Helios and welcome!

As you can see by this past post, I'm a big fan of that often overlooked story. :thumb:

Nice to be appreciated. :D I have found a few unexpected items just by advertising that I am looking for them on a few game sites. I have had some help from here as well. I have yet to get pictures of the turok egg box but I am working on it. The axe would be killer. I seriously doubt many around here, if any, have seen it.

He's so complete, he bought the properties.

I don't think anyone else can get that complete.
