The news we’ve been waiting forever for is here, Valiant Comics is launching on Free Comic Book Day 2012. Even more exciting than that, this FCBD issue will be the launch of a new line of Valiant comics, with X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, and Harbinger leading the pack.

We are all pretty darn excited, so of course we discuss this news as much as possible. Listen now!

  • homonyms vs. heteronyms, though there’s nothing wrong with that!
  • Grandpa tells a story that will “peak” your interest
  • Stan Lee principles are applied! You new folks will not be lost!
  • Harbinger Hangups, and the lack thereof
  • Craigslist, new weapon of the Harbinger foundation
  • The fate of the local comic shops
  • Comparison of the New Valiant publishing schedule and the Dark Horse Gold Key publishing schedule
  • A new “Unity” type crossover? How likely is this?
  • Cops love Amarillo
  • Mullets – a pretty bad disability
  • Is bloodshot without lightning bolts still Bloodshot?
  • Aric on the moon! Or in cotton land…
  • Obligatory Star Trek reference, and a good alternative
  • We introduce a new way to get off track: James Bond
