Wanted: Turok 41, 43

I'm looking for

Turok Dinosaur Hunter #41 and #43 to complete my VH1 Turok collection.

Thanks,

My disappointment with Sting (post Harbinger 25) (Spoilers)

I'm slowly making my way through the Valiant VH1 universe. My favorite Valiant character besides Jack Boniface is Peter Stancheck (Sting). In the Harbinger series, he was a very interesting and relatable character who may or may not be gay. I always wanted to know what became of Peter Stancheck afte...

Ivar and the Time Arcs

Was there ever an explanation given as to why the rules of the time arc seemed to change? When Ivar was introduced in Archer and Armstrong, a bloke from England was sucked into the time arc instead of Ivar. He then ended up at the Stonehenge. Lots of normal people during different time periods had b...

Archer's parents were psychotic but they hid their evil away from their son. Archer could have turned out like Erica Pierce.

Shipping to Canada from the US is more expensive than shipping from Canada to the US. If you are buying from the States it is better to buy multiple items from the same seller to cut down on the shipping costs.

I really did not care for the Yearbook very much since it did not have the feel of the Eternal Warrior that I am used to. It is hard to see Gilad as a warmonger and murderer. The story seemed confusing and the biggest drawback for me is that the artwork wasn't as "clean" as the other Valiant titles ...

I'll have my answer for this question in a couple of months. I'm reading post-unity Valiants for the first time and so far think that the quality of story telling is still very strong at this point. I'm up to around Magnus 21 in the Valiant timeline. Only Hardcorps and Bloodshot have been introduced...

I agree with David. If there is no quality story telling and strong continuity, then no incentive in the world would make me want to buy a weak comic book.

In the June 1994 Defiant comics, Jim shooter writes: ...

I wasn't surprised. Valiant was a big money mak...

You make a really strong and convincing argument for Solar.

I sent the comic books out to the USA, plus a few extra. The total shipping cost $19.00 US for airmail so I refunded him $3.00. Hopefully he'll enjoy the Valiants like I do.

Definately what everyone else said. The pre-unities are the best.

Pick up Unity 0 and 1. Unity #1 gives a timeline of what happened during the Unity Saga.

As for Unity 2000. I really enjoyed reading the plot for issues 1 through 6, but was disappointed by the ending. The reason I started this post. The Valiant VH1 universe should not have been discarded as if it never should have existed. Of course, Unity 2000 #4, #5, and #6 were never officially publ...

*** WARNING *** Possible spoilers. # # # I've just finished reading Jim Shooter's outline of Unity 2000 (Issues 1 through 6) and was shocked by how it would have ended.
