Nick,

That's one impressive set all by itself 8-) .

What (and whom) you're building it for just makes it that much cooler :thumb: .

Thanks Jay! :cloud9:

The birth of my sons is what got me back into comics in 2007. The challenge with twins is trying to have two of everything to avoid the later fights.

I wish I had been on here when those Solar 10 revamped cover books were being created. I actually like that cover.

The zombie covers - though I am a Walking Dead reater - not as much.

bosco685 wrote:This and my Archer & Armstrong 0 Gold came directly from Valiant back in the day when you had to do something to promote the company in order to receive one. I received this from an article I wrote in the Stars & Stripes about the history of comics while I was serving in the U.S. Army Infantry as a platoon leader. The focus turned to how Valiant was the new kid on the block teaching the old-time comic companies how to mix captivating stories with nice artwork. I guess Valiant liked it.

Yeah, for sure: best of luck on that'n :hope: . I didn't realize you planned to submit it :hm: . I guess you must've agreed with me that it's FAR tighter than any 9.4 has a right to be, and should (hopefully) garner at least a 9.6. If it's any higher than that, I'll actually be quite pleased about that, mein freund :wink: .

Speakin' of submittals, any word on those A&A's you made mention of a lil' while back :poke: ?

Sorry - been super busy at work lately, with loads of travel to Canada and Texas. And Texas requires a special passport. :P

I have not submitted the other copies yet. But my plan is in the next few months to tackle that order, along with that EW 1 Gold Flat.

:hope:
