    Rent in NY is crazy expensive anyway, in any year. However, since comics can be created from home the writers and artists need not report to an office. Valiant can have a physical office somewhere much more affordable in any state.

    Yeah, Bleeding Cool reporting the same thing. Valiant tried to deny it, however, the office is indeed available to rent.

    Not really surprising, given their huge dip in quality (and, correspondingly, their huge dip is sales) since being purchased by DMG and losing Dinesh. Covid pushed them over the line.

    Is it really? I think a comic company needing an office in Manhattan is very last millennium, even for a company like Marvel. DC was the first company to realize this. Valiant made the right move, especially when you consider that they aren't owned by Disney.

    First company to fall?

    I don't know why people think this is crazy. With covid a lot of companies realized they don't need an office nowadays. Google is set to make work from home the norm, if I remember correctly. I'm sure they got hit hard from covid, however I wouldn't take the office closing as a end of times sign, just that they need the money and now know they don't need an office.

    Personally, I'm more upset at the lack of Shadowman news, I need my fix!
