Indeed. Give a hand to Della and Hobo...and the other, more silent "partners" who assisted them on the magnificent journey.

Is that a Star Trek reference on page 7?

Looks like it.

Wasn't the "NCC-1701" actually from an address of Roddenberry's originally?

Glad someone saw that. All high Valiant-nerd honors if someone gets the ref. on page 24.

I'm guessing it has something to do with M. Price, but I sure don't know the reference...

Yup. Gotta go pre-pre-Unity for it. Something Greg pulled out of his stacks to show years ago. I know magnusr got it, can't remember who else did.

If you like that, you should check out Man of God by Pinwheel Press. All of these guys joined by Valiant alumini Yvel Guichet and cover artist Dan Brereton.

Yes. There was both a hard cover version and a TPB version.

You should contact Dellamorte. He may still have a few left.

Thanks,

It was. There was a TPB and a HC sold by dellamorte. I almost bought one, but never got around to sending in my payment. It was right before I disappeared for almost 2 years. We had a newborn keeping us busy.

All in one place? It's not fair. Back in my day, we had to wade through multiple threads to read Playing God. And wait for new installments. Punk kids don't know how good they've got it.

*SQUEE* I was away from the forum so long that I forgot about Man of God. I was really looking forward to it way back when and now that it's in print I MUST get my grubby little hands on it.

If you contact me directly, I can get you copies of Man of God 1, 2, & 3.

I have all of the variant covers (Yvel/Brereton/Convention exclusives).

Issues 4 & 5 presales will be coming soon as well as a new kickstarter.

Finally, we have virgin prints of the covers for 1A, 1B, 1C, 2A, 2B, and 3B as well as an issue #2 ashcan limited to 50.

Is this possibly available as a .cbz or .cbr file? I'd love to load it on my tablet for ease of reading. If not, I'll just make one myself. I can post it here after I make one. If the creators are okay with it, that is.

We are now less that 48 hours from being finished and we need $2,722 to get you guys the #0 issue. That means if 109 people pledged a set of 1-6, we would hit this goal.

$25 right now gets you 1-6, the Bob Hall Kickstarter exclusive cover, plus the sticker, button, & miniprint. This includes shipping!!! At $4,500 you get 2 more kickstarter exclusives, and at $6,000 you get the rare #0 issue. Where else are you gonna get this kind of swag for $25?
