Re: Dr Tomorrow #4 (2020)

Kid is worried his dad will "come looking for him" but upon learning he goes back to the same moment in time chooses to age 10(?) years before returning? Pretty sure dad is going to be more upset about that. That's just a stupid plot de...

Re: Looks like we know what happened to Ryp. a bad idea

Yeah, it's nice that around here they keep complaining about bad artwork and only getting 2 books per month. At the same time "they" are so far up in #BadIdea's butt; a company that is stalling on purpose (for no reason at all; at this point), giving us their big fat BUTTon, and pulling all the gre...

She appeared originally and primarily in the Clone Wars tv series, as well as some appearances in Star Wars: Rebels, and is rumored/assumed to be appearing for the first time in live action in season 2 of...

I agree. With just an homage image to go with it. Could be a Divinity mini, a big X-over event, and/or a line-wide reboot a la Solar creating the “original” VALIANT Universe.

It's not looking good for Valiant these days. Its like they are trying to be the kind of comic company that liberal arts college freshman talk about with the one or two seniors who still hang out in the campus coffee house. Dude, could you sound more deuchey? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Jeff Parker’s Agents of Atlas series was one of my all time favorites. He does some good superhero/spy stuff.

Re: What comics are you reading now?

Anyone reading Strange Adventures? Long break after #1 due to the pandemic, but issue #3 dropped last week. It’s slow paced, but really sucks you in with the underlying mystery of what ACTUALLY happened on Rann. While I greatly enjoyed King’s acclaimed Mister Miracle, I did tire of the sketchy-at-be...

I had an idea where Neela recruits him for a time travel mission to the 80s because he’s the only compatible tech for the time period.

Re: Dr Tomorrow #3 (2020)

Can you imagine Marvel or DC giving a novice writer the keys to write all of their characters in the first book they’d written? I think it shows a lack of respect for the Valiant U and fans that the editors can green light a story like this to a writer without a proven track record. Wouldn’t a one ...

I thought it was another solid entry. Is it a bit YA? Yeah. Is that not for everyone? Yeah. But taking it for what it is, it’s still probably one of the best books other than Rai that DMG Valiant has done so far. I did think the art took a step back this issue, and the pace was very fast and made fo...

Haven’t read it yet, but have seen good reviews for the issue. Overall this series has been a pleasant surprise. That’s in contrast to the Visitor, which looked interesting but has been a huge disappointment. Hopefully Final Witness is closer to Dr. T than Visitor. Looking to the future (ha!) I woul...

Re: And they begin to close...

Heading the way of Blockbuster and the big box book stores...a few larger chains that are more pop culture than comics will survive. The rest will move into mail order over brick and mortar for collectors as more casual readers turn to digital.
