Re: XO Manowar [2020] #1 Discussion

I really had hopes this would be the book that turned the ship around after an unimpressive year without the A-list characters for the most part. There hasn't really been any book that moves the Valiant universe forward in any meaningful way, and if X-O isn't going to do that then there's really not...

Re: Ninjak officially on Youtube!

It was great to finally be able to see the whole thing. I wish they could've continued this universe, the characters didn't really get much of an introduction so spin-offs would have really helped flesh out this version of the universe.

Re: Good news about the Bloodshot movie

unfortunately, they closed all the movie theaters in L.A. today before I was able to see it, now I'm not sure when I'll be able to.

Re: Bloodshot #0 Discussion

My theory is that Booth can't figure out what's going on in this story either, even though he drew it. I think I would have just killed myself if I had to try to make sense of this script enough to try to illustrate it.

Re: Visitor #1 broke one of shooters main rules for pro comi

I just remembered...when I was reading Archer and Armstrong I noted that every single cover had Archer using arrows...but almost never in the books! I don't remember but I think it was like two or three TPBs before he did. He took Mary Maria's crossbow in issue #3 and was already using it in the ne...

Psi-Lords #7 Discussion

X-O Manowar actually appears in a Valiant book! He doesn't really do much, Capshaw just advises him to save himself and get off of earth before the vampire star collides with the planet. Finally, if we're going to get D-list books we should at least get A-list guest stars every now and then. I guess...

The power outage was shown in Quantum & Woody at the time (issue #6), although nothing else in that arc tied in to HWII.

Re: Let’s talk solutions to fix Valiant!

I guess we'll discount Livewire, Punk Mambo, Killers and Roku from this year and not count them as Harbie, Shadowman and Ninjak books? So we're at 2 right now. X-0, Harbinger and Shadowman are all on their way. That's 5. Q&W is on the way too, so if you count them as a tentpole, that's 6. No, I wou...

Re: Let’s talk solutions to fix Valiant!

The days of Valiant feeling like a shared universe are sadly gone and probably never coming back. The new model is that pretty much everything is a limited series and self-contained. For some odd reason, DMG has decided to mine all its lesser-known IP's (Psi-Lords, Punk Mambo, Roku, Dr. Tomorrow, th...

Re: Bloodshot (2019) #2 discussion

Frankly, the books haven't even been worth my time to comment on. I had hopes that a new Bloodshot book could turn things around but that wasn't meant to be. This series is better than the last one, but that's not saying much. I don't feel any connection to the characters and nothing feels connected...

Re: Killers #4

Yeah, the solicited cover has the same logo as the previous issues, but the logo on the actual cover is different from that too.

Compare them here:

So I'm not crazy, they really did just change the logo on the 4th issue of a 5-issue series. That's like the most DMG thing that DMG has done yet.

Just think: probably for 3 months next year Psi-Lords will be the only Valiant book with double digit numbers (assuming it makes it to #12). Did you ever think you'd see the day?

Re: July Sales Woes

the total sales for Secret Weapons #1 (21,938 + 10,908) is higher than the 2012 Harbinger #1 sales (32,111).

July's sales were higher than June's, Harbinger and Faith both had increases from the previous issue. Looks like a good month to me.
