Which book did VEI put out first? I remember their FCBD issue was early on, but didn't they put out something before that?

What are the best new characters VEI has created? What are their first appearances?

With that cover, it could legit be argued this is the first VEI X-O appearance.

Easy to look up, I just don't have a spare second, but characters new to VEI that I think are important...

Bleeding Monk, Punk Mambo, Divinty, Mary Maria, Kay McHenry, the 1%, the Harbinger kids (from Harbinger Wars), Gin-Gr, Vine, and Malgam are all strong characters new to VEI. Those are the only ones that I could think of as being worth following, and of course are new.

New VEI characters with the biggest chance for movie app. Which will equal $$$$:

Bleeding Monk
Dr mirage (Shan)
Kay McHenery
Maybe Hidden Moon?
Darpan
The Vine
And of course......

Cronos!

I'll probably change the top post in this thread to contain a list of key VEI books, so keep working on identifying them everyone! :)

Harbinger #23.... Death of Flamingo, flips the VH1 template on its head
Shadowman #0 Exposition on the Darques
Shadowman #10 possibly greatest issue VEI has published to date
Unity #1... while nothing spectacular content wise; the title is an homage to VH1's greatest saga.. And
adds a team book to VEI's offerings
Rai #1... an highly anticipated book; a glimpse into 4001 world; unbelieveable artwork; though the plus edition is really where its at with the new japan map
XO#1.... puts VEI on the map; something old is now new, truly Reimagining VH1 universe
Divinity #1 ( I'm debating this one, but it does push the GK3 out the door; with a Solar riff)

:funnypost:

But I also count the summer preview as the first VEI book because it was the first new material that they published. Also first look of XO and Harbinger.

I would love Dr. Mirage showing up in a possible film. The mini was great. Appears to be underordered because sales looked really low. I wonder what the lowest ordered/sold issue would be from VEI? Probably not X-O.

I recommend reading that hardcover. It's better than Cheeseasaurus Rex.

Hmm, I don't know if I'd call it a "key" issue seeing as its reboot ninjak. But thats interesting that it "could" become a sought after issue in respect to this new incarnation of Ninjak. I just don't think people put much stock in first appearances anymore than #1 issues ( not true first issues but rather books with #1 on the cover, seeing as how often they are renumbered nowadays)

Unfortunately it is not Ninjak's 1st app. Great book. And I like the new Ninjak better than the old, but not 1st app.

Anyone see the ripple into the original Valiant?

The first appearance of the Bleeding Monk is in Harbinger #1, isn't it?
