Welcome to a new episode of the Valiant Central Podcast. As we enter our 30s, we figure we would take a step back from shenanigans to get into some serious Valiant Comics discussion.
We start off talking about what it means to be a Valiant fan, and the interesting dynamic that we have seen among the groups and various podcasts over the past couple of years and how varied our origins and experiences are. We also dive a bit into the latest issue of Ninjak, how amazing Stormwatch was under Warren Ellis, and how Valiant's event books have evolved over the years from Harbinger Wars, to Armor Hunters, to Book of Death.
A huge thanks to Nick Wetmore for joining us. You can find Nick on Twitter @NickWetmore and on the upcoming Nerdy Legion Podcast.
Welcome to another episode of the Valiant Central Podcast, the show where we take Valiant universe, and process it through our demented brains to bring you in-depth high quality this discussion - ok, so most week we do that.
This week, Paul and Martin are joined by a special guest, Joshua Schwartz from band, A Sound of Thunder. Some of you may remember the band from their "Punk Mambo" single that was released with the Valiant Humble Bundle some months back. They have been hard at work on a killer follow-up album called "Tales from the Deadside" which is currently on Kickstarter and is inspired by the latest run of Shadowman. In this episode, we talk a little bit about Unity, but really kick things into high gear as we dive into the bands' influences and inspiration for the album, why Shadowman is such a great series to base a metal album on, how the band hooked up with Valiant, and so much more!
Be sure to check out all the links below to learn more about A Sound of Thunder, and their Kickstarter, and be sure to pledge today for some amazing rewards.
Get ready for an action-packed show filled with nerdy discussion as this week, Paul and Martin are joined by friend of the show Pedro Soto, and Mike Myers and Chris Campbell from the Valiant Podcast to talk comics.
Welcome to another episode of the Valiant Central Podcast!
We usually release new episodes on Friday but we wanted to wait until San Diego Comic Con 2015 to see if Valiant had any juicy announcements...and they kind of did. This week, Paul and Martin are joined by Brett Simon from the Talking Valiant podcast!
First, we talk about James Asmus taking over writing duties in Unity with issues #23 and #24 and discuss what this could mean for the future of Unity and whether it means the book is headed towards cancellation.
Then, we get into a heated discussion abou retailer incentives. It seems that Valiant is pretty happy with how the Book of Death sales went and would like to offer more retailer incentives in the future. We don't have any details yet, but we spend a good bit of time talking about whether we would buy yet another retailer incentive, whether it's fair to fans, and Martin goes on a bit of a rant about how mad these shenanigans are making him.
Be sure to check out Valiant Database to get tons of info on EVERY Valiant comic. We'll be back on Friday!
