Re: Does DMG Valiant have a future?

I think there’s still time to save Valiant but only with a radical shift in direction and a return to the style of books we had under Dinesh’s reign. Whoever has been in charge of hiring editors since DMG took over and has green lit the garbage produced has got to go.

Does DMG Valiant have a future?

Heather Antos has left VEI, could this spark a return to better books from Valiant or is the problem rife throughout the company since DMG took over? Have Valiant bosses looked at the sales and feedback and learned the error of their ways in time for the company to turn around its fortunes? Is it be...

Re: Heather Antos leaving Valiant for IDW!

Addition by subtraction. Looking at her twitter you can barely tell she's even in comics. The comics industry truly is amazing for continuing to hire people that take their previous work or company to new lows. Not something exclusive to just Antos, but it's amazing It’s incredible. What’s in it fo...

Heather Antos leaving Valiant for IDW!

The damage might already be done at Valiant and it might be too late to save the company but at last Heather Antos is leaving Valiant!

Good riddance to her and her roladex of C level creators. Good luck IDW.

Let the good times roll!! :high-five:

...when asked on Twitter about (hypothetically) taking back Valiant (which is rightfully his) and if he would merge Bad Idea...his response was ...Deathmate 2!! How unbelievably good would that be !! :o

Re: How important is colour?

I think it depends on the genre. Crime books work well in b/w (eg Stray Bullets, Armed and Dangerous). I think if Shadowman was more Vertigo style and serious then b/w could work well. Ninjak is another book which might translate well into b/w if done well. Acclaim 2.0 is going in the opposite direc...

Re: Savage (2021) #2

I bought this comic because I think it's got a low print run You know what else has a low print run? Thousands of other comics you've never heard of and never will again. And I don't mean that as anything ill towards you. I'm just disappointed that Valiant is effectively over again. The Acclaim boo...

Unacceptably bad artwork. Dialogue that just comes off as a string of concepts and half-baked attempts to tie the movie to the earlier series.

. As a disclaimer, I am a 50 year white heterosexual male, so i believe my opinion isn't valid or part of Valiant's target audience. I just have a high disposable income that i'll have to direct elsewhere, i suppose. Yep, you nailed it! Most long time Valiant readers will be a similar demographic a...

Re: Submit your Question to Bad Idea Take Over of The Comic Source

Kind of rolled my eyes at the diversity and representation questions, but overall great job Jace. Thanks for that. How often will new episodes come out? Yeah I rolled my eyes too ...what a tedious question. Thankfully Dinesh and Warren didn’t bend over backwards trying to accommodate this nonsense....

Controversial poll but ENIAC has that warm and fuzzy VEI feel.
No controversy with this statement. You look at the list of people involved in Eniac #1 and it’s all Valiant. DMG Valiant aka Acclaim 2.0 have produced 90% sub standard dross, reading Eniac just reminded me of that fact.

Agreed. I assume as it’s a number 1 more retailers will order a few extra copies of Savage, it’ll be under 5000 very quickly. Valiant showed some pages from Savage #2 on Twitter and it was cringingly bad, dialogue and art.
