Re: Monster Kill Squad #4 (Bad Idea)

I thought it was better than 2/5, but not by much. Issues 1 and 2 where going somewhere, issue three stalled and slid on issue 4.
Maybe my expectations from 1 and 2 let me down with the conclusion.

Re: Let’s get optimistic for 2022’s new releases…here’s a poll!

Hard call between Shadowman and XO, but given that I don't like the new 'Muscley XO' design I went with Shadowman for my 1 vote. Looking forward to all of it with the exception of the dubiously titled 'Armourclads' :roll: just because it's a totally new property. Could be great, could be pants, giv...

We all know the last 3 years have been dire, but there’s a new guy in charge and the newly announced releases might be a turning point. 1 vote each and give your reason in the comments. @Greg Holland …do you even still read Valiant bro?

Distribution problems in UK for BadIdea, any problems elsewhere?

First why I haven't been to local comic shop in awhile ( I have had a knee replacement). Second ~ just to point out, I was told the diamond UK distributes BadIdea in the UK ~ so don't know if they are not getting the books, or they are not providing the preordered books. I rock up to my local comic ...

Re: Undervalued Gems

I agree. Prog 2 with free gift s cheap for such a major character. Very iconic, well known in the general population than many that sell much higher.

Re: XO ManOwar #8 2021

I just cannot read it. I have tried 4 times. I don't have issues 1~4, so not invested in the story. I just put it away now. When I get issues 1-4 I will give it another go. Issue 8 was just so bad, even ninjak vol 2 is better. I LOVE xo, I actually enjoyed vol 2, and obviously all the relaunch stuff...

Don't know if its covid, shipping problems or ? Books are not arriving at local comic shop, yet available through their mail order. Becoming disinterested due to lack of books.

I would read valiant, if any of my standing order was actually filled by my local comic shop. I didn't buy X 0 5 as they didn't get issues 1,2,3,4. They then got issue 4. I said I will buy them when 1,2,3 turn up. I could buy off eBay, but cannot be bothered. May just buy trades. Badidea ships reall...

Don't want to be negative. Its great that so many retailers are doing so many covers and variants. Just have a bad feeling, looks like half the print run will be shop incentives. Really hope I am wrong, and this book smashes it out of the park. Looking forward to it, but I think the days of multiple...

Just want to state, that they lived up to their word. The manager promised if the gold badge ever arrived from head office it would be mine, as first purchase of Eniac 1.

Thanks guys! Unfortunately it does not ship to the US. Send the seller a message, tell them you have a high eBay user rating (if you do). See if they will ship it.
