Re: OTV/VCR - Bloodshot Movie Review

I started to watch it and need to finish it. I wanted to be so stoked for this, but it's looking super formulaic and vanilla. The goal was to hit the theater and check it out, but COVID spoiled my plans on doing that. I'll finish it and hopefully review it soon. As far as the other movies are concer...

XO Valiant Beer from Pipeworks (Chicago)

I was shopping at a local market when I came across a bottle of XO beer. Anyone get a chance to check this out? https://scontent.ford1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/19511271_10155618282508258_205798808426772027_n.jpg?oh=c917f2b37913c37eecfe7fdba42f5d8c&oe=59DE5904 It's produced by Pipeworks in Chicago.

Re: Bloodshot #1 (2012) 1:50 variant not as rare as thought.

Speaking of updating, will the price guide have updates for 2016 books? Is there a way of helping you with this? Looks like it was just done on the 23rd. Maybe there isn't enough information or they can't get a solid fix on the prices? Just a wild guess, I'd imagine the people working the price gui...

Re: I'm out.....

I guess I'm fortunate because there's a 2nd and Charles near me, and I think there are only a dozen or so in the country. I lucked out because they ran a deal on newer Valiant books, so I was getting a ton of back issues and variants for $1-2 each, so I could fill holes in the collection for 1/2 to ...

Re: What's a recent deal that you got unexpectedly?

There's a place by where I live in Aurora (used book store) that sells comics new, and occasionally will buy collections. They have V1 and VEI back issues, and I have purchased near full runs of newer books for over 50% off, realizing that some of the books are coveted 1:10 and 1:20 books. I recentl...

Re: Slabbing Valiants (and other books)

Another question: I see you can submit books and will CGC not slab if it's under a certain grade (if you specifically tell them not to slab less than a 9.4 for example), or is it submission price, then you get what you get? I know records and good beer, and my collection of comics have been gracing ...

I appreciate the replies. I'm assuming Overstreet probably has a page dedicated to how to prescreen, etc. I'll start doing some research.

Slabbing Valiants (and other books)

Long time listener, first time caller regarding this subject, but I wanted to ask the more experienced members to assist a noob like myself on the processes of slabbing. I own 4 slabbed books, 2 of which are valiants (Unity 1 [9.8] and A&A 0 [9.8]). I finally did the big reorganization project over ...

A movie version of teen superhero team Harbinger has previously been in the works at Paramount with Brett Ratner at the helm, but rights reverted to Valiant in 2013. I read this and was wondering if the films are successful, would Harbinger become a television series? It seems that title would work...
