Re: Valiant Preview: Bloodshot Salvation #1

The storyline, announced earlier today via the Washington Post, centers around the character’s relationship with his girlfriend Magic, which has quickly developed into something strong and real – and is set to deepen further with the news that Magic is pregnant, and that they have a daughter togeth...

Re: Valiant + Warped Tour

Warped Tour's not only a pretty big name when it comes to music, but it also generally attracts a teenage to young adult crowd, many of whom who have probably never heard of Valiant before (as big a splash as Valiant's made in the comics industry, it's still kinda restricted just to said bubble). So...

Re: Another announcement incoming?

This time I really hope they have a new Shadowman series ready to go immediately after this ends, and not months or years later as usually seems to happen. Yep. This would be my number one complaint about Valiant. They put all this work into making these great stories and then they completely drop ...

Re: Arrival Screenwriter Launching Superhero Comic for Valia

So Secret Weapons is actually going to be a thing again. And from what I'm reading, I'm honestly pretty psyched. If any of you guys haven't seen Arrival yet, I'd definitely recommend it. The best way I could describe it is if Man of Steel was written by an actual human being, so already Heisserer ha...

Re: Stupid question about bloodshot and rai

There's more to it than that. Harada captured Bloodshot and took the nanites. The two sets of nanites (Bloodshot and Harada's experiments, presumably) have been continuing separately since that time, with the emergence of Sunlight on Snow as the likely result of Bloodshot's nanites gaining sentienc...

Re: Stupid question about bloodshot and rai

No, there's no connection between them. In fact, between PRS being very clearly an American organization and Rai's redesign following his defection from Father, the two are more different than they've ever been. Not that that stops articles from still referring to "The Blood of Heroes" regarding Blo...

There's actually a line where you can see at least one of Gilad's scars, they're just super subdued. Would've probably liked them more prominent, but whatever. Both of them look damn good.

Re: Mike Rowe interview - talking about Ninkak Vs. The Valia

I'm also slightly upset at Ninjak not having an accent. Yeah, he's an amalgamation of various characters, as Rowe said, but at his core he can be boiled down to "Ninja James Bond." It's one of those details that separates him from the other McNinjas . Now, I don't really know Rowe's acting backgroun...

Re: Divinity III - Komandar Bloodshot #1 Discussion

So here's the thing about Lemire's writing for me: When he's focused exclusively on Ray Garrison, he's infuriating as hell. Bloodshot was left in a pretty good state following Armor Hunters, and Lemire turned him into a whinging dunce with a terrible romance with Kay that has only served to fuel a b...

Shadowman appearing from the staff as a genie (djinn) was way cool. I think if Ninjak was in Deadside at the en...

Re: Do you think Archer could channel Divinity's powers?

I believe Archer can only download Psiot powers that have been mapped by PRS for their HARD Corps program. He's not a mimic. He downloads abilities from the akashic record, which is the sum of all human knowledge. If powers are not understood as a specific brain area/patters/etc, then he can't acce...
