Re: Heather Antos leaving Valiant for IDW!

So does Valiant have a replacement or is it just the end? David Wohl was hired as a senior editor nine months ago. That's the same title that Heather had. I'm guessing this was a planned replacement and it just got delayed due to the pandemic. And Lysa Hawkins is a senior editor...3 senior editors ...

Eniac #2

Great second issue from Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite. The story of the Eniac computer and the agents’ efforts to destroy it continues at pace. As always Kindt throws in some weird ideas ( Andronnikov has a virus in his clothes to kill Eniac...no one saw that coming!!) and also a nice twist at the...

Re: Tankers #1

Back up story and back cover are cool, too. Overall great stuff! Will all Bad Idea books cost $5.99? Just asking/wondering. No Eniac is $3.99 and is a 4 parter but Tankers is a bigger page count over 3 issues. Some books will be one shots and they’ll be more expensive. Quality of the books is pheno...

VDitti doesn’t waste much time in getting to the time travel part and brings the action back to current day just in time for t...

Re: Heather Antos leaving Valiant for IDW!

So does Valiant have a replacement or is it just the end? They already had 2 or 3 ‘senior’ editors for 2 books at at time so I think they’re good for the time being when it comes to replacing Antos. Definitely quantity over quality has been Valiant’s approach for editors in the last couple of years.

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...

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:

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...

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.

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....

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.
