Re: Weekend Valiant game...pick what I read next

I was telling my wife about Engines of Destiny earlier this year! We could not find it on audiobook so we listened to Probe instead.

Re: Your Quarantine Experience?

The only significant way my life has changed is that church services are not happening. Other than that, my life is pretty much the same. My county has (I think) the highest percentage of positive tests in the state at around 2%. The overall population is somewhere around 25,000 and there are over 5...

I cannot help you on the printed copy but that is interesting.

Re: Is the VIP sneak peak the most undervalued Valiant book?

In order to be "the most undervalued Valiant book" the VIP Sneak Peak would have to first be a "Valiant book". It isn't. It's a Nikey shoe. It's a Ferraro car. It's a Butterthumbs candy bar. It's a hamburger from McDonney's. It's a bottle of Shoulder & Heads shampoo. Most importantly, it's not even...

Re: Who won the EW 27 9.8 VVSS?

I had four figure offers for my Harbinger TPB 2nd print, which I traded for a Cary Nord painted cover. Refardless, the seller missed an opportunity for certain. Wha...
