Re: Are there scans/pdfs of the Valiant Voice 0-19 anywhere?

When I put the binds together, I like to have books with complete stories (like Steve did with the crossovers). I have purchased some bound Valiant (on eBay for a deal), and the binder went with the numerical order of the series, which I feel leaves you hanging if you are missing part of the story. ...

I thought the HC did a good job of pulling all of the issues together in a reading order that made sense to the story. It certainly made me want to see how the XO series continued ( I am still trying to find XO HC Deluxe 4 and 5).

Re: Bloodshot: Reborn #13 Discussion

I actually loved this arc. We know BS was subject to false/implanted memories when used as a weapon by PRS but we'd yet to live out an arc with this at the core of the story. I think it was perfectly executed and a great nod towards continuity by keeping with the original Swierczynski run :thumb: B...

Re: A & A 0 Gold CGC 9.8 Green Label

I don't mind green labels at all when it's a signature by someone who freely offers signatures (such as Jim Shooter). There's no incentive to "fake" a Jim Shooter signature, unless the book was otherwise worthless. Maybe a giant stack of Rai #9 with Jim Shooter signatures being sold for $10 each wo...

I read the House of X #1 a couple times and liked it. I have the other two to read still. I'm not the bi...

Taking this off track. Have you read any of the House of X or Powers of X? I haven't ready X Men since Age of Apocalypse, and have enjoyed each issue of the the new X series.

House of X and Powers of X.

If you liked Hickman on Manhattan Projects then you should try this series. The format (as in the ...

Ten issues into Immortal Hulk and I am absolutely loving this title. Thought the title of “Immortal” Hulk was going to play out as a cheap gimmick - boy, was I wrong!

Let’s also say this crook was getting an unbelievably huge amount of grades of 10.0 on expensive books from...
