Many - most of these are relatively inexpensive - but TOUGH to find.

Find what YOU are happy with.

If I win an argument, it doesn't mean I'm right. It means I'm a better arguer.

In addition, I'm right.

Interesting that Magnus #1 was planned for July 1990... that means it was delayed for 8 or 9 months. :hm:

It's also interesting that Shooter didn't specify VALIANT in all caps in that first publication. I wonder if that was an oversight on CBG's part, or if he decided to make it all capital letters later. :hm: :hm:

I wish they had published the reprints to Magnus as TPBs.

Thanks to all for sharing this article.

I just recently purchased a box full of ADVANCE COMICS catalogs from the 90s and your information/list is a bit messed up. The following isn't complete either. I only have issues from 92-96 (and a few are missing, too [58, 76-77, 82, 84-86, 88]), however, I tried to list everything that seems interesting. I'd scan the most important stuff but the scanning function of my printer sucks; everything gets heavily pixelated and it's not worth the effort. Can anyone recommend a decent scanner for jobs like this?
