Re: Secrets of the Valiant Universe (Wizard Edition)

There are 2 versions, correct? The regular edition and the foil. The regular edition is about 5 bucks and the foil is the one to get.

Re: Anybody else wishes Netlfix would had gotten Valiant?

The timeline kinda works. Being the 3d biggest well connected comics universe would have made a nice splash for the investors, the diverse characters would have calmed the woke mob even if Netflix cares less and less about what the press has to say about them, my understanding is that they medle le...

Re: Solar #60 Salvator Mundi reference?

No worries, I had just asked a question about it. That's why I had wanted the creative on that comic to chime in if at all possible. This is a direct quote that I had said right before Sunlight on Snow started his lame flame. Obviously he completely ignored it because he wanted to start a flame war...

Re: Solar #60 Salvator Mundi reference?

It seems like you're looking for an exact copy instead of similar. Anyway, I have seen lots of Jesus Christ paintings where he poses like that of Solar on the cover with his arms out. That's where I got the religious reference, I wasn't focused on his face. And as far as his facial expression is co...

Re: Bloodshot Salvation #12 to be Lemire's Last

Slightly concerning news that Lemire is off the character, if he’s not writing anything else for Valiant then this is another blow (after Heisurrer left). It’ll be interesting to see what fresh talent the new editors can get on board. What if they are cleaning house and Valiant is looking to prepar...

Re: Solar #60 Salvator Mundi reference?

Man, I just don't see the similarities at all. Placed side by side, they look nothing alike. No direct lines of the gaze with the audience, more of an upward gaze. Both hands raised, vs just one. No orb, just the earth, and it is on the wrong side. I guess I just don't see it No worries, I had just...

The Solar cover is similar but not exact. I was intrigued when I found the translation of Salvator Mundi and knowing Solar is g...

Re: "...Management Team Talks Post-Sale Changes, Future Plan

I really don't see them doing an actual 'reset'(reboot) of the universe, in whole, or in part. ("What do they have to lose?" some might ask. Oh, I dunno. Maybe a big chunk of the thousands of devoted fans that have followed this universe for 5 years+. And many of those that have been Valiant fans s...

Solar #60 Salvator Mundi reference?

I was amazed at the amount the Salvator Mundi painting sold for and noticed the cover to Solar 60 looks quite similar. Do you think that the cover to Solar 60 was a Salvator Mundi reference? Salvator Mundi translates to 'Savior of the World' and Solar is in what looks like he's in a religious pose i...

Re: Discuss Hard To Find Or Currently Hot Comics Of Any Era

Ninjak 4 ships this week. When I first saw the A cover, my first thought was, "this is just the sort of cover that makes the book a hot commodity, regardless of the content."* Of course, the content on the first 3 issues has been excellent, in my opinion. *so I arranged to buy a few extra http://st...
