Re: BAD IDEA

Whatever Dinesh does, I'm on board for. I just really hope this doesn't become a "history repeating itself" again because Defiant didn't last long!

Re: Is Karl Bollers no longer at Valiant?

To be honest, I feel like the final nail in the coffin is Sony ditching the Harbinger film to avoid working with Dan Mintz. To me, that speaks volumes.

Vintage Valiant Mostly High Grade Sets & Near Full Sets

With a potential move still looming, it's time to sell off the collection. I have very close to everything Valiant produced in the early to mid '90s. Although I don't have the full grades listed for each, feel free to message me for any particular key issues you would like a grade on. Most everythin...

Re: Harbinger 1 9.8 Price Changes

My last one sold a week and a half ago at $900. The Paramount news frankly doesn't give me much faith Harbinger will be getting out of development hell anytime soon.

Re: Paramount Picks Up Harbinger From Sony

If Sony is sold to a larger conglomerate within the next year or two, I'm wondering aloud how that could affect future Bloodshot films. Apparently the rights to Spider-Man revert back to Marvel if that happens. I'm guessing the same may happen with Bloodshot?

Re: Paramount Picks Up Harbinger From Sony

Again I have to question, what is DMGs thought process? Considering how everything went south for DMG not long after they acquired Valiant, my guess is they're desperately trying to get anything before cameras to get some much needed cash and hopefully keep bankruptcy away. Unfortunately for them, ...

Re: Paramount Picks Up Harbinger From Sony

It's so awesome that Bloodshot sounds like it may just be a huge hit. Pretty much everything else for live action Valiant feels just dead in the water. Quantum and Woody TV series by the Russo brothers anyone? Doctor Mirage? And now Harbinger switching studios. To be brutally honest, it all just sou...

I'm mulling the possibility of listing ALL of the VEI series I've collected since 2012. I'm missing only a handful of issues. These are all pretty much the A covers. No va...

Re: Rai 0's CGC 9.8

What is going to be really interesting is when the first Bloodshot trailer hits. If it looks amazing, I could see the glossy 9.8 possibly going as high as $1,000. Stranger things have happened!

Re: Rai 0's CGC 9.8

The minute I heard the movie news in 2015 I immediately dived right back into buying classic Valiant titles, starting with the keys.

I've got a feeling about Psi-Lords

My gut is telling me Psi-Lords is going to be a huge success for Valiant. So far, everything I've seen looks really fun and really interesting. I think I might have to go for whatever the ultra-rare variant cover is for this one.

Re: Life And Death Of Toyo Harada preview!!!

I'm frankly surprised they've left Harada on the sidelines as long as they did. His story is basically the most important one in the Valiant Universe and after Imperium abruptly ended it's had virtually zero impact on the rest of the universe. And what the hell is Solomon up to? That's another Harbi...

After a kind of underwhelming 2018 for Valiant (thanks, Harbinger Wars II) I'm starting to think Valiant may be getting back on track in 2019. Some of their recent CREATIVE hires are getting pretty good buzz and it sounds like there's a bit of a push to finally start doing some universe building aga...

Re: Whatever happened to that Dr. Mirage CW tv show?

Strikes me as just more random PR. New writer for a script. Nothing else is actually happening. Harbinger has a director. Who was already attached as a writer. Nothing else is happening. DMG has to keep interest up in their properties. I don't see any actual progress being made beyond the Bloodshot...

Re: Harbinger Movie gets a director.

I do know that at least a few people are lobbying to get a certain very famous Japanese American actor to play Toyo Harada. I'd say more if I could but haven't gotten an official OK to do so. What I will say though, is that if he's chosen it will be in my humble opinion dreamcasting.

Hi everyone. I’m starting to run out of room for my comic collection and have to do some much-needed paring down. So today, I’m starting with Valiant titles I have more than one copy of. For the classic ’90s stuff, the key issues aren’t quite CGC 9.8 contenders, but many are still in high grade cond...
