Bob Bretall from the Comic Book Page Podcast invited Sean from OTV to join him for a Publisher Spotlight on Valiant Comics. Bob was a fan of Valiant the first time around, and with Valiant Comics returning to comic shops this summer starting in May, The Comic Book Page thought it was a good time to revisit the first incarnation of Valiant from the 1990s.
Bob and Sean discuss the rise and fall of Valiant comics, and discuss the titles that they released, including Harbinger, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, Shadowman, Eternal Warrior, and more, with an emphasis on what we enjoyed about each title. We also discuss the good and the bad of crossovers, from Unity to Deathmate.
