Re: Valiant NY Offices are Permanently Closed

Should've never hired Heather Antos Agreed, but the previous 2 senior editors (Robert ??) and the guy before him were just as bad. The rot set in straight away since 2018. They’ve just made bad hire after bad hire. Heather Antos was supposed to bring in the ‘young, hip crowd’...young and hip but no...

Re: Valiant NY Offices are Permanatly Closed

Another bad sign about the health of company. The last 2 years have been one constant slippery slope since Dinesh was ousted. Is it conceivable that the current version of Valiant goes out of business which opens the door for a Dinesh return? IDK.... I hope Valiant Comics doesn’t “go under” ‘cause ...

Re: FCBD 2020 Bloodshot

New female character in the last panel shows up, could be interesting. Female character? Dallow, not making fun, but you didn't realize that it was the girl from the Bloodshot movie? I can't remember her name right now. I mean, she is, isn't she? I agree very much with other comments that Wiggins c...

I don’t remember him mentioning his dad in this issue (maybe I zoned out). If this book was aimed at all ages then I don’t think it’s an easy story to follow.

I was good with the writing on this until the turn at the end.

Pretty sure dad is going to be more upset about that. That's just a stupid plot de...

Re: Valiant appoints a THIRD senior editor!!

He’s been in the industry 35 years so at least he’s paid his dues. He can’t do any worse than the last 2 years and if he waters...

Dr Tomorrow #4 (2020)

Quick recap of where we’re at. Former Valiant editor and first time writer is allowed to write VEI’s first multi-verse story and cram in all of Valiant’s characters for no apparent reason. Former senior editor, Robert Meyers, wanted a book he could give to kids at conventions. So now we now have thi...

Yeah, no. I love the original Q&W. So, its not about the property or the type of book. I want Q&W to be a part of the universe and have great comics. VEI/DMG has simply swung and missed every time. Then stop buying/*SQUEE* about Q&W. SIMPLE as that. Isn’t that the point of being a fan. You don’t wa...

Bad actors? facepalm someone’s swallowed the antifa hand book I see.

Quite the opposite, police officers are often scapegoats for ‘political point scoring ‘ and suspended, sacked, jailed because of manufactured public outcry based on carefully edited film.
