About this show

Welcome to Valiant Effort (disparagingly named for ourselves and not the awesome comics we are reading) a weekly podcast where we read, discuss, and grade the trades put out by Valiant Entertainment. Well, we don’t actually read the comics on air, we do that before hand, but you get the idea.

Hosted by Joshua Eves and Nick Doscher

Why can’t the Geomancer be more specific? Is the pen truly mightier than the sword? Why is everyone getting cut in the face? Thanks fo listening!

Ep. 45 - Enter: Armorines

Enter: Nick and Josh for another jam-packed episode of Valiant Effort. This time we're talking about the 8th XO Manowar trade. Josh wants a world without politics, Nick wants a world with an Armorines Saturday morning cartoon, and Nick and Josh both want a world where they can do math. So put on your thinking caps and get ready for a tiny Nick and Josh to whisper another episode right in your ear.

Also, Nick is about to be married! After this episode we'll be going on a short break for bachelor parties, weddings and honeymoons. We'll return soon. Meanwhile you can send Nick your best wishes and keep the conversation going by emailing us at vepodcast@gmail.com and on twitter @vepodcast!
