Re: Valiant appoints a THIRD senior editor!!

I said I was enjoying the pause not that I was excited (Many things are paused in the world right now). I have been using the time to focus on what I missed 2012 to date. Not sure how that equates to I want to doom the line to 2 books a month long term or to mediocre story telling. Sorry, I was bei...

Re: Only The Valiant Podcast

I came in late in 2014, but I think I eventually got around to almost every OTV episode. I remember spending entire days catching up on old episodes. You guys were like a beacon of light when there was no one to talk to about Valiant. Even after the "podcast boom," no one topped OTV. VCR has been my...

Re: Valiant appoints a THIRD senior editor!!

DC and Boom have been going strong, publishing their complete lineups, since June. Meanwhile, Valiant will have published 9 whole issues within the span of 7 months. I am actually enjoying the pause. With so many different covers that had been coming out it is nice for a bit of a break to catch my ...

Re: Valiant appoints a THIRD senior editor!!

Newsarama announce that David Wohl is to become yet another senior editor at Valiant. Apparently he co-created Witchblade and the Darkness as has been an editor at Marvel. He’s been in the industry 35 years so at least he’s paid his dues. He can’t do any worse than the last 2 years and if he waters...

Re: New Ninjak series by Jeff Parker and Javier Pulido

What does Valiant have to lose by changing things up? Almost nothing. Yes, because losing the entire hardcore fanbase that VEI carefully cultivated for 6 years is "almost nothing." Logic. They have everything to gain by trying something different. Doing "something different" isn't always a good thi...

Re: If this is as good as it’s going to get then watcha gonna do? Take the poll!

Other. I'm not going to stop buying Rai, just because the rest of Valiant's output sucks. Similarly, if they come out with new, interesting books, I'll definitely give them a shot.

Re: Resuming Valiant reading and now heartbroken?

I think your summary is even a little generous. I wouldn't say Killers was "well-received by most readers" especially how it ended. I didn't have "personal problems" with Faith; it, just like Killers, ended poorly. Yes, better than the trainwreck holiday issue, but not better than Future Force. And...

You are a very generous Valiant fan. Not really? The only books I mentioned, that you didn't, were Britannia, Faith, Incursion, X-O, Ninja-K, Bloodshot Salvation, Livewire Vol. 1, Killers, and Dr. Tomorrow, and you should have, because they're all really good!

Re: Resuming Valiant reading and now heartbroken?

Don't let the haters scare you off, there's some good sh!t in the DMG era. Harbinger Wars II definitely isn't great, but it's not bad. Britannia: Lost Eagles of Rome is just as good as the first two mini's. Faith: Dreamside is good, if you're into Faith stories. It's still written by series writer, ...

I'm thinking of buying one of those, but probably not both at the moment. I've read AA In the Bag. Obviously the next sequence is Romance Road Trips but I don't like Faith very much. Just looking for educated opinions 1. Faith is only in one issue, and that issue is the best issue of the entire A+A...

At this point what can be done to turn around the situation?

From a business perspective how long can it go on for with sales this low? They n...

That’s true and there were a fair share of duds too but the percentage of hit rate was so much higher than what we see today which is virtually non-existent. Rai's a hit, at least among (sp?) the "fandom," and Dr. Tomorrow seems to be fairly well received. So that's a solid... 25% hit rate? I think...

Re: Disregarding continuity...a solution?

While I agree the recent titles are blatantly busting continuity, we shouldn’t pretend VEI didn’t often do the same. ...are you serious? The original EW arc by Greg Pak, anyone? Out of VEI's first 7 books, one arc had severe continuity problems. That's hardly the same as DMG doing it with every sin...
