"Here is a very interesting room up here on the left. This is the autographed books room. Now all of the books in this display, our prime benefactor had autographed himself. These books will always have a special place here at the E.I. These signatures were obtained during the height of Valiant's popularity. They speak to us, remind us how wonderful and special the early 90s were. They also now, point to the future possibilities for VEI and the return of Valiant."

"here are two Solar books signed by cover artist..... Joey Q. Our benefactor wanted us to say that Joey Q was pretty cool and smiled while he signed the books."

"Here we have Solar #16 and #17."

Image


"Now here we have a collection of X-O Manowar books signed me the one and only Mike Leeke. Mr. Leeke was very friendly and talked while signing the books."

"Here we have two X-O #5s and a X-O #6 signed by Mike Leeke."

Image


"Next we have a collection of X-O Unity books signed by Mike Leeke..... and Mr. Leeke also signed the Valiant cards fo the same cover."

Image

"And lastly, a few more X-O books signed by Mr. Leeke. These are X-O #9, #10, and #13."

"So we have just completed our newest wing here at the Elveenian Institute. This is a very special room for us. This room features one of a kind original art by one of the E.I.'s favorite artists and all around good guy, X-O Hobo Joe. Enjoy the art."

"This one is of our favorite immortal, enjoy."
Image

"Here is a wonderful take of the one and only Robot Fighter, and yes, it is a battle tunic."
Image


Here is a very special piece that is one of our most favorite displays. Not only is the art amazing, but all proceeds went to the Cystic Fibrosis Fundraiser. I think this is better than the original."

"Please stay as long as you like. Just no flash photography."
