I'm all for discovering new talent, but I have yet to anybody who impresses. They could use a few "name" artists, like they did at the beginning of the original Valiant.


Although I really don't collect the Modern material (I would - just not enough space), the few I have read were really well done. Are you saying the later VEI books started to cheap out on the artwork?

By the way, the CEO is VEI is a Collectors Society and ValiantFans forumite. He was posting and shared there is some bigger news coming. I hope after the Archer & Armstrong movie news came out they are now going to deliver Bloodshot. That could be real interesting.

Valiant Announces $100 Million+ Deal To Make New Superhero Movies, From China

Valiant PR gave the word to the New York Times. Hundreds of millions to make Valiant-based TV shows, and movies for the cinema.

And they have also received tens of millions of investment into the New York publisher itself, from the Beijing-based entertainment company DMG who co-funded Iron Man 3. However DMG remain a minority investor. They will also work together to pursue large-scale Chinese licensing programs for the Valiant characters beyond film in publishing, toys, gaming, apparel and more.

This is certainly the biggest competition in terms of superhero-based films and TV to Marvel and DC’s hegemony and the biggest film financing announcement from a comics publisher since Marvel Studios set up to make Iron Man.

Looking on opinions from those who have read some of the newer Valiant comics. Is it better or worse that the pre-unity stuff? Specifically looking at X-O Manowar. That series rocked and I see stuff relating to it now all the time but I hesitate to jump back in.

I was also hesitant, but probably not for very good reasons. I really don't like the new look comics have, and while I realize I'm missing out on great stories and art here and there, it keeps me away from buying new books. I'll probably wait until the tried and tested stories make it to TPB.
PLUS new books are soooooo spendy. For the price of a small stack of moderns, I can get at least one SA/BA back issue I need.
But I LOVED the early Valiant. Archer & Armstrong and Magnus were my favorites.

I agree. The early Valiants were great. They looked great and read great. I too am extremely put off by modern comics. Not only the look but many of the artists and more importantly the stories, abandonment of continuity, and endless new # 1 issues and reboots. Comics today just don't look and feel like the comics of 20-30 years ago. Yes, I know there are some exceptions but then the price is also a huge deterrent for me. All of that adds up to me putting my money into older comics. I'm not going to pay for what I don't enjoy.
For shame doc. Huntin' rabbits with an elephant gun.
Ewephant gun?
That's right doc. So why don't you go shoot yourself an elephant?
