Was that a real comic or something you photoshopped? That would be just WRONG!!!

The sad thing is not only does this book exist, but there's a second cover to it, as well:

You know, for kicks, I re-read these last week, and who-boy, 1/2 of them stunk. It really felt like the Image side, they just wanted to do standard Image books with 1 or 2 Valiant characters drawn in, not even really participating.

Now the Valiant versions, they went through the trouble of mixing up teams, changing the background of characters slightly, etc. A true mixing of the 2 universes.

If you didn't read the 2 Image titles at all, you wouldn't miss anything from the series at all.

ugh. deatmate. never thought it could be so bad. seriously.

A-why the hell does archer have a gun?

B- why is turok there? unity was prevented, and thus, he would still be in lost land.

C- why was Pete stanchek with harada?

D- why is aric a wussy without his armour?

E- why is magnus in any kind of future, when unity, again, was prevented, so he would be in the current timline.

F- i could go on, but why bother?

and the real problem is, all of those things i just put were problems with deathmate black. not even the whole series. each book could fill a whole alphabet.

Off the top of my head (too lazy to look Deathmate stuff up):

A- Archer has a gun because he never went to the monastary to learn archery.

B- Unity wasn't the only way out of the Lost Land especially with certain WildCATS characters around.

C- Pete is with Harada in order to show how different this timeline is.

D- Aric was a wuss because being a mind controlled puppet does that to you in an Image comic :wink:

E- Magnus didn't go to the future because their was no Unity and thus he was a baby in the early 90's. That's why we saw a grown Magnus at the beginning of the Harbinger Wars in Deathmate. Just because he didn't time travel doesn't mean he doesn't have a future :| .

Edit: BTW, these are "problems" from three seperate Deathmate comics, not just Deathmate Black :wink: .

I was just demonstrating my amazing ability to read the words they put in those little white balloons on the pages :P . Just cause I understand what they mean, doesn't mean I'm having a good time reading them :wink: .

Absolutely. Archer, Magnus, and Sting weren't even in Deathmate Black. Archer was in the Previews insert and Blue. Sting and Magnus were in Yellow. X-O and Turok were in Black.
