hobbyDB partners with ValiantFans.com for comic database

There has always been a worry in the back of my mind - "What if I got hit by a bus?" (or some equivalent) Life insurance takes care of my immediate family, and everything I own stays behind, but what about the 25 years I spent online? Would anything I worked to build for so long survive online? Woul...

Re: Marvel Series 1 cards

I doubt if the prices can hold long-term, but I also believe that the current generation(s) of investors aren't interested in traditional investments. If I can put money into some stock which #1 might be a company that I use (Amazon, Google), or #2 it might be some company that I've never heard of t...

Re: Bad Idea rubbing people wrong?

I agree with IMJ - but I have to think that Bad Idea may be purposefully trying to live up to its name. With Valiant, Dinesh did just about everything right and ten years after monthly comics started he's no longer with the company and the monthly Valiant comics have slowed to a trickle. If doing ju...

If the CGC data API records and gives access to page quality we could ask Greg to run the numbers on this. Books from 1991-1993 with page quality not WHITE and grade >= 9.8.
No, the data that I have does not include page quality.

Re: VH1 TPBs?

I was going to try to guess what company did those from memory. I could remember "National" and I wanted to say "National Something-Generic". 😁

Catch-A-Star did several signed books (mostly comics, not trades), and a few of these "aftermarket signatures" even had commercials on HSN and QVC.

Re: VH1 TPBs?

True, but the signed editions aren't Valiant products. They come from retailers/resellers who got artists/writers to sign later. The COAs mention the third-party companies.

The Diamond Previews Unity Trades (two volume) are official, but the others are not from Valiant.

Re: VH1 TPBs?

Rai Valiant Era Solar has 2, Alpha & Omega and Second Death. If you're not collecting variants, that's all. Otherwise, there's a blue X-O, blue Rai, and Harbinger also has regular (black bird) and a 2nd printing. Unity also has the two-volume Diamond Previews set. Predator vs Magnus was a Dark Horse...

Re: VH-1 Magnus and Rai - 4000AD or 4001AD?

It was 4001 for Valiant.

Gold Key stories for Magnus were "in canon" for Valiant, so you could say Valiant is one year later than Gold Key's 4000 A.D.

There was a Magnut, Robot Biter in Marvel's Not Brand Echh.

I remember "Donut Biter", but it may have been a spoof card that looked like a cover.

I don't know who submitted these books, or if they'll ever even see this post, but this has to be the saddest group of Valiant submissions that I've ever seen show up in the same week on the CGC Census. http://www.cgcdata.com/cgc/search/publisher/:Valiant:/label/all/orderby/alphabetical/variants/yes...

The redesigned suit was unexpected, and it appears they're going to change his powers along with it. I guess this really solidifies the change from VEI to DMG.
I think I heard something about tires and handlebars.

Thank you!

I have no clue how many newsstands there are of Magnus 64 in a 9.8. I guess we know there are 2 for sure!
My hunch wasn't about nycjadie's copy, so there are at least 3 for sure. :D
