Armorclads #2

Gun to the head I can’t remember much detail about this story as I read it over a week ago but thought I’d post as no one else can be arsed to. As with issue #1 it was fine, readable stuff but I’m only picking it up as it’s Valiant. Same story with an image logo and I’m not bothering. I assume at so...

Re: Year of Valiant FCBD 2022

Bloodshot - story phoned in, art reasonable A&A - deeply uninteresting. Archer’s personality has devolved into just saying very naive phrases (‘phooey’), art was ok but Armstrong had zero expression as he falls out of window which seemed odd. At least Armstrong is back to his usual colour and not th...

Re: Armorclads #1 (2022)

If enough people go likewise then maybe a message will eventually get through. Are you saying there are too many people buying Valiant comics right now? :twisted: :P :D Ha ha definitely not! :lol: I’m saying that fans have to show a discernible buying difference between the good stuff and the dross...

Re: Armorclads #1 (2022)

Thanks for the reviews. After reading Valiant's website the story seems to borrow some concepts from the Exosquad cartoon. It is worth reading issue by issue or waiting for the TPB? IMO, when DMG do (or attempt to do) the right thing then support them by buying individual issues. In this instance t...

Re: Armorclads #1 (2022)

This was fine, not great but I’ll pick up the next issue. I assume somehow it fits into the Valiant Universe but after issue #1 there’s no obvious connection (unless the spider-alien thing turns out to be true). I think I’m more open to this from DMG as it’s a new property and there’s no established...

Monster Kill Squad #4 (Bad Idea)

Sorry to say but this 4 issue mini from Christos Gage was a mess and shouldn’t have been green lit. The story was tedious and the dialogue even worse. Art from Tomas Giorello was wasted on this series. B side by VDitti and Ryan Bodenheim felt like the intro to a future story planned involved Earth b...

Re: Monster Kill Squad #3 (Bad Idea)

I mean you and I apparently see things differently lol. I suppose my list comes out to 20% miss-rate, but like you said, if you include the B-sides, the percentage would drop quite a bit. I don't think that's bad at all tbh. Valiant missed every once in a while too. ENIAC- HIT Slay Bells- hit Tanke...

Re: Let’s get optimistic for 2022’s new releases…here’s a poll!

I wonder if they should ask us to write a series (I.e. Valiant fans). It worked for Star Trek Next Generation. Fans wrote many of those episodes. Why not Valiant? Heck, I’d do it for free. I’ve got an idea for a BetaMax story. Let’s hear the synopsis of the story Chiclo, then if we like it we’ll cr...

Re: Monster Kill Squad #3 (Bad Idea)

The line has been a bit hit and miss, maybe Warren allows too much creative freedom in some instances but given the cost and trouble to get the books they must do better than this. Really? I think the line has been solid across the board... excluding this and The Lot, and even those weren't that ba...

I’ll keep it brief….art by Tomas Giorello very solid…story and dialogue by Christos Gage surprisingly poor! :o I don’t know what genre this book is supposed to be, lots of smart arse quips (yawn), confusing dialogue, instantly forgettable characters…just not good. Side B was a reprint from another b...

We all know the last 3 years have been dire, but there’s a new guy in charge and the newly announced releases might be a turning point.

1 vote each and give your reason in the comments.

@Greg Holland …do you even still read Valiant bro? Let’s hear your comments :wink: :P

Re: Bloodshot relaunching as mature reader book

I think all three of these sound great tbh, but we're still stuck on 3 issues-per-month. Just give us four damn it! I’ll take three good ones, or even two out of three good ones, a month over two stinkers a month. Definitely quality over quantity. I’m buying zero garbage books per month…I will buy ...

Re: Bloodshot relaunching as mature reader book

Awesome cover......is this a homage to some Punisher cover?!? https://valiantentertainment.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/bloodshotunleashed_promo.jpg It is a great cover, is that Davis-Hunt? If so I’m up for that art :thumb: Not sure about the Punisher homage, hopefully it’s an original as I think...
