Re: The Devil's Thread: Matt Wagner's Grendel

Oh cool, I’ll have to remember to keep an eye out for that magazine! I think I saw Matt post this cover art on his Facebook page at some point earlier in the year - I think it’s a new piece he did for this magazine. I am also not entirely enjoying Odyssey so far - it’s got a few good moments here an...

Re: New Ninjak series by Jeff Parker and Javier Pulido

Maybe they are doing something different because there is a dearth of creators that will work with Valiant after cutting out the original creators of VEI. Creators tend to work with others that respect creators. This....times a million. +1 Humans make these comics... humans, who worked with other h...

If not familiar, its basically modern artists doing very limited run screen prints featuring new artwork that is officially licensed by the film studios. They typically...

Re: Unity golden ticket books

BewareCyclops found the Crain cover at Forbidden Planet.

It'll be pretty cool if someday someone actually finds one. It would be a comple...

What’s even crazier is that people have bought some of these from the seller. If the price was $20 or less shipped I might consider buying them and using them as fire starters :P

Other. I’m not feeling much enthusiasm for any new Valiant series of late (only picking up RAI currently), but I’m an open minded person and will give anything a try that looks appealing. There just isn’t much going on that is appealing to me. I am not automatically against everything they may do at...
