My story

Post by mvs10 »

Hey guys. New here but I've lurked for a long time. My story isn't all that strange but my first encounter with anything Valiant happened when I played Shadowman and Turok on the N64. Had no idea there were even comics about these guys until my sister's boyfriend at the time introduced me to them. He was an aspiring comic artist and I thought he was the coolest person in existence. He showed me some XOs and had a few of the Ennis Shadowman that I thumbed through. I was hooked on comics from a while and then my interest kinda waned. I picked the hobby back up around 2011 with the New 52 over at DC. My trips to the comic shop were getting more and more frequent. I was browsing and came across Harbinger #1 there. The cover sucked me right in. Stood there a few minutes reading all the speech bubbles until I talked myself into picking it up. I've been hooked ever since. I loved reading about the old company, how it got resurrected, researching the characters, all of it. I loved how everything felt like it mattered in this universe. The newer comics had most of my attention until I came across a huge lot of VH1 Shadowmans at a garage sale and I've been pouring over back issues and collecting them since. Just finished up my floppy run of the OG Archer and Armstrong and I'm not sure what I'm gonna pick up next. Eyeing that XO omni and I'm also hunting down keys. It's been a lot of fun and I'm glad to be here. Thanks for reading!

I loved that first Turok game, too. Had no idea what the hell I was doing after the first couple of levels but it was still fun.

Welcome aboard!
