    Lemire's mainstream stuff doesn't do a great deal for me outside of Animal Man (if you can call that mainstream) and Green Arrow, so I'm thrilled his exclusive is over with DC. Big fan of his indie...

    I thought Harbinger Wars was OK - I actually thought the post-Harbinger Wars issues of Harbinger were better, once the reveal happened. Made the event stronger as a whole.

    Every issue of the Armor...

    This was just a great issue. I'm burnt out on events and all that jazz, but AH #1 actually lived up to the hype. Venditti's world and myth building is fantastic.
  4. Sticky: I got all the references, which were cool and...

    I got all the references, which were cool and all, but they were (so far) more easter eggs than anything else - interested to see what happens in Unity the next issue or so however.

    On the whole...

    My opinion on Rai after 2 issues is that the artwork is brilliant, but the story itself is hard to judge yet. Not a whole lot has happened in either issue really, and I get the feeling that the big...

    On the flip side, do we need another Marvel/DC-esque title with invulnerable heroes and villains fighting for all eternity with no lasting consequences? I think not. I welcome characters dying (for...

    That's exactly why it was Charlene - she has had little-to-no development, really. Abused, sultry former-stripper who controls fire. Every other character has been fleshed out to an extra layer...

    I have to say, Shadowman End Times #2 was a big improvement from #1. Probably Milligan's best single issue since coming onboard.

    Harbinger: The obvious comparison is X-Men, but this is a much edgier book and a bit unique in that it focuses almost solely on the struggle between the Rebels and bad guy Harada. Very strong writing...

    In short, no. Save yourself some money and grab the floppy of Shadowman #0, as that was an outstanding issue. The rest of the run varied in quality, but never ventured above mediocre.

    My advice is don't worry yourself about how specific characters met. It doesn't matter. Like every Marvel and DC character, over the next 5-10 years of real time every thing you read today will be...

    Not true. A&A finishes after this arc and, from what I've heard, Q&W too in the near future. We get an A&A/Q&W mini soon. Harbinger is also, I believe, going on "haitus", and Bloodshot and Eternal...
  13. Sticky: Eternal Emperor was a big step up from the first...

    Eternal Emperor was a big step up from the first arc, but still wasn't fantastic for me. I agree though that I'd love to see his book used to build the far(ish) future and past of the Valiant...

    Yeah, this was a great little arc. Mushroom Thing was awesome... I'd guessed that Miki was going to wind up being an avatar of the blue given the upcoming Aquaman tie-in, but I guess it's still...
  15. Sticky: I finally read Shadowman: End Times #1. Yeah,...

    I finally read Shadowman: End Times #1. Yeah, that wasn't very good. I just don't find the whole Loa-vs-Jack thing to be at all interesting. And the 'I-won't-ruin-it-for-everyone' twist... yeah, not...

    X-O was, to my mind, basically a mindless Hollywood action movie through the Planet Death arc - entertaining, but not really essential. Although I thought the Unity tie-in was a bit forced, I really...

    I think post-Unity arc X-O has been a very fun read. I'm enjoying it more than I have since the pre-Planet Death stuff, and Armor Hunters looks great.

    Yikes, even worse than the filler book between Jordan and Milligan's runs? That was by far the worst Valiant I've read.
  19. Sticky: I haven't read Shadowman: End Times #1 yet,...

    I haven't read Shadowman: End Times #1 yet, hopefully this is the Shadowman story that clicks with me.

    Never read a single issue, but I've always been curious. What's the best starting point, Volume 1?

    Unfortunately that's pretty much the norm for those outside the Big Two. #1s around the 30k mark, a sharp decline at #2, followed by a slow decline after that until they float around the 8k mark (at...
