Re: DC Layoffs

I agree that COVID hasn't helped. What other factors do you guys think has led to the decline in readership across the hobby so badly that this is happening? Overall lack of quality / entertainment value for the money is big factor. Only crazy folks (us) would pay $3.99 for five or ten minutes of (...

Re: If this is as good as it’s going to get then watcha gonna do? Take the poll!

Other. I stopped reading every Valiant title after Venditti's X-O run. I picked up most Faith-related stuff after that. I have Life and Death of Toyo Harada but have not read it yet. To me Valiant took a nosedive when Kindt and Lemire took the reins from Dysart, Venditti, Van Lente and that guy who ...

Finishing up Crisis on Infinite Earths again and about to start Legends. Going through all the big Post-Crisis DC crossovers. Also reading early Wolverine (first issue through Fatal Attractions). My pull list nowadays: TMNT (consistently the best book on the stands for years now), Superman titles, F...

I was leaning towards Max "VIP" Blackwell. It is a deeper cut for a Valiant name. 8-)

Although Valian Tisbetter is a good suggestion too. :thumb:

Vertigo Preview #1. It's got an exclusive Sandman story not reprinted elsewhere. Probably hasn't signed too many of those.

Re: Onslaught/ Marvel relaunches

Heroes Reborn sucked. Heroes Return were some of the best Marvel Comics of the 90's.

Lobdell and Alan Davis' Fantastic Four, Waid and Garney's Captain America (should have never been "reborn" in the first place, and Busiek and Sean Chen's Iron Man. :cloud9: Great stuff!

:lol: No, I told him that I didn't want to make him uncomfortable and I changed the subject. Although I doubt he'd have any anxieties about talking about it if he'd liked the idea, so in his reluctance to answer, I kind of got my answer anyway.

Re: Does Valiant make writers sign NDA's?

A few years ago I asked Rob Venditti about his opinions on the way Legends of the Geomancer was released and whether he wanted to talk about it and couldn't or whether he could talk about it and didn't want to was never made clear. Bone-a-Fach-ee was there and as soon as I asked the question Rob loo...

Of course it could. And it is. And I'm glad people are enjoying it. But my enjoyment of things from my childhood (Star Wars, comics, etc) has turned into more of a participatory engagement and dialog with my own past than an interest in new material. I am interested not so much in having my childhoo...

Re: X-O Manowar #1 1:500

Reminds me of Playmates' Star Trek figures. Hugely successful line until they released three figures that were limited to just 1701 copies. When fans realized that they were probably not going to be able to complete their collections man abandoned the idea of collecting the whole line.

Re: Alterna Comics launching line using only newsprint!

I don't know. The 33% industry-wide increase from $2.99 to $3.99 was the largest percent increase comics have had recently and had nothing to do with paper. Also, when the industry standard price went from $1.00 to $1.25 (and $1.50 shortly thereafter) they were still being printed on newsprint. I se...

Re: Alterna Comics launching line using only newsprint!

I don't think paper costs have that much to do with the $3.99 price point. In fact, I'm sure I've heard before that the glossy paper that's prevalent today is cheaper to use than newsprint would be because of the amount used. I wish them luck, but I don't see this working. I seem to remember someth...
