The Visitor Status?

Post by cthulhu73 »

I know Valiant is barely trickling out now, but this is one I have not seen since March at least, I think. Did it get cancelled?

I'm re-reading old Levitz Legion comics now; he could certainly spin a good long-term story.

Unless something came out in the last month or so, I'm not sure that we know.

Visitor 5 and 6 are outstanding. I think X-O 2 publishes in the next several weeks.

The new Shadowman and Savage are up in the air, as well as Final Witness.

I think Doctor Tomorrow begins publishing again, as does a Bloodshot issue, and a new arc of Rai.

They scaled way back to the point where I'm not sure what's going on. It seems beyond COVID. My LCS was saying they would love to have some product, but they aren't producing any. I was going to order the high ratio for Shadowman, but that seems up in the air.

I told my LCS that I'll need some new monthlies since Valiant is grinding to a halt, so will probably be transitioning to something new.

How on earth did you get hold of Visitor 5 and 6? 4 is the last one I saw.

I bet what we had here was failure to communicate. By "outstanding" you probably meant "still undetermined" whereas I took it to mean, "Man those were great!" LOL

Just read this in ComicWatch:

CW: There were quite a few titles announced earlier this year with no release dates attached. We’ve gotten some great looks at the new Ninjak series recently, but can you tell us when we might expect more details on some of the others such as Final Witness, The Visitor and that elusive Harbinger tease we saw?

MK: How amazing is Javier Pulido’s art for Ninjak? It’s a completely fresh take on the superspy world that we’re so incredibly excited for. It has this international vibe to it that we haven’t seen yet. This is truly a new launching point for Colin King and to have one of the most acclaimed artists on that character is so exciting. Javier and Jeff Parker, who I’m also a big fan of, are bringing this insane pace and energy to the character that’s going to have you ready to scale skyscrapers when you finish an issue. As far as Final Witness, Savage, Shadowman, and **The Visitor***, stay tuned, we’re in the midst of planning out when we make those return announcements. As far as Harbinger is concerned? It’ll be better to just show you. And y’all ain’t ready for what’s coming. You’ll see much more in just a couple months…

Visitor 5 and 6 are outstanding.
I'm kinda thinking this may be the first and the last time I hear that
I've been looking everywhere for the ultra-rare Turok vs Blister issue. Anybody able to help me out?

Man I hope not, but yeah so far underwhelming. Levitz is pretty good at telling a drawn-out story, but this one is not moving.
