Another week is in the can which means it’s time to get ready for the weekend with a fresh episode of the Valiant Central Podcast! This week, Paul and Martin are joined by Ross Kearney, co-owner of Coast City Comics in Portland, Maine to get a fresh perspective of the industry from the retailer’s side. Ross also works at ComicLink, an online auction house dealing with high-end comic books. We discuss some of the recent resurgence of interest in the classic Valiant titles, the speculator market, and how it’s all affecting the market for current titles. We also discuss the role of digital books and variant covers and their effect on the traditional comic book shop.
Get in touch with us! Paul is @whospaul and I am @Valiant_Central on Twitter. Also, feel free to send us email feedback email@example.com, we’d love to hear from you. Don’t forget to swing by the Valiant Database to get tons of info on EVERY Valiant comic. See you next week!
For our twelfth episode we have a massive podcast convergence (err…ok, wrong publisher) as Mr. Darrell Taylor from the Valiant Podcast, and the Taylor Network of Podcasts joins Paul and I on a very special episode of the Valiant Central Podcast!
In this episode, we discuss the history of the Valiant Podcast and Darrell’s network, and dive into some of our favorite Valiant moments. We also learn about what it’s like to be really passionate about something you love, especially when it comes to comics. This episode is a long one (and may have some profanity), but we had a blast.

Welcome to another episode of the Valiant Central Podcast, bring you real talk, and interviews from fans just like you!
This week, Paul and I are joined by site contributor and Valiant superfan Amy Okamoto and we talk a little bit about some of favorite female characters at Valiant.
Then, we are joined by Harbinger and Imperium writer Joshua Dysart and have a great discussion on his work at Valiant, his work aboard, the World Food Program, and get many of the questions that were submitted to us answered. A huge thanks to Josh for joining us this week, we really enjoyed having him on. If you’d like to skip directly to the interview section, fast forward to about minute 18.
We’re all on Twitter so find us there. Josh is @JoshuaDysart, Amy is @amymystery, Paul is @whospaul and I am @Valiant_Central. Be sure to check out Josh’s website for images and videos of his recent trip to the Middle East. Until next week, Stay Valiant!
This week, Paul and I are joined by Chris from the VCR podcast, and Tyler from All-Comic.com to discuss the evolution of Harbinger into what has become Imperium.
We take particular interest in the relationship between Harada, Peter, and the Bleeding Monk, and how this trio has shaped those around him, and themselves – and of course, there was Sunlight on Snow talk. If you haven’t read Harbinger or aren’t up to date on Imperium, this should be a great primer you, and older fans may find some food for thought. Next week, we will be talking to Joshua Dysart himself about these books so it starts here!
In episode 9 of the podcast, I am joined by Brett Simon from the Talking Valiant podcast and we cover the spectrum of Valiant books and discuss the blurred lines between Valiant heroes and villains. We also speculate a bit about the future of Unity, Shadowman and the Valiant universe, and talk a little bit about how to get new readers to read Valiant books.
You can find Brett on Twitter @simonsezstuff, on Talking Valiant with Adam Shaw, and he is also a contributor at Moar Powah.
