Hello Everyone!

 Lisa is Glad You Asked … about Valiant this week.

Travis and Dan are gonna fight the biggest Warhammer 40k fight of the year this Saturday.

Remember that we once again will be using Black Friday, November 27th, as a day for our customers to give to the food shelves right here in our community.  Bring a item of unexpired food and we will double your Adventure Club discount to 20%.  In years past you, our customers, have gone above and beyond to bring food those who need it most. We are sure you will be up for the task again this Holiday Season.

Wolverine is still dead.

Glad you asked…
By Lisa

I got a little ahead of myself last week when I talked about Mighty Thor
#1, Pretty Deadly and Jughead #2. They are absolutely still as awesome as
I said last week. But they actually are hitting the shelf this week. Pick
them up, look at them, fall in love with them. You don’t need to thank me. You’re welcome.

This week I’m very glad you asked about Valiant Comics. Seriously though – you’ve been asking me about Valiant a lot. More and more people are finding striking trades like Divinity, Rai, Ivar, Timewalker, and Doctor Mirage and asking me about them. And here’s what I’m telling you: Valiant is the most successful publisher you’ve never heard of, with the largest universe of superheroes outside of the Big 2. At the Harvey Awards this year (second in prestige only to the Eisner Awards) Valiant had more nominations than any other publisher. By a long shot. They had 20 nominations, five more than their closest competitor (Boom).

Valiant was founded in 1989 by former Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter and others, grew quickly, and was purchased by Acclaim. Their game development division did some work with the universe, but then moved on. The Valiant of now was kicked off in 2005 and in 2012, they began to roll out the new Valiant universe of books and were nominated for several Publisher of the Year awards for their efforts. The next year, Quantum and Woody was the most nominated book at the 2014 Harvey Awards

.
This year they’re still re-introducing characters to the mainstream, with significant contributions from Matt Kindt and Jeff Lemire, especially on the event books,The Valiant and Book of the Dead. Those events happened in a few books, on time, with the visual and conceptual coherence that we all cry ourselves to sleep at night wishing Marvel and DC could learn too. That brings us to this week, and Wrath of
the Eternal Warrior #1. The Eternal Warrior is an immortal protector of the Geomancer, normal individuals who come to commune with the Earth and fight on its behalf. It’s a very hazardous job, and they are mortal so the Eternal Warrior eventually loses all of them and is a fairly damaged dude as a result. This #1 is much  more about meeting the character behind an eternity of battle and it’s lovely as a result.

On the near horizoan Faith of the Harbingers is  finally getting her own book which is
going to be the Empowered Female Mic Drop of the year. There’s also the new 4 book series of Doctor Mirage, which I’ve been talking about breathlessly forever. And Ninjak #10 is the start of a new storyline featuring the much anticipated return of  Shadowman.

Valiant is a cool, young publisher with lots of jumping on points coming up and when Lisa tells you one of the books is super cool, get it. Read The Death Defying Doctor Mirage vol 1. It’s the definition of rad and there’s another series coming soon. Check out Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #1 this week. And thanks for being an active, savvy community of readers who ask about these books, try new things, and require us to stay on our toes.

Warhammer 40k

Saturday
, November 21st
6PM Start

Dan and Travis want as many people as can fit around the 15′ sand table to bring whatever they want.  Dan & Travis will have 7 titans, 4 Baneblades and as many Primarchs as they can scrounge up (~ 7).  There is no list requirement…bring any 40k collection of units you would like.  The goal is to laugh, have fun…and roll lots of dice.  When a unit gets destroyed completely, it immediately comes back on to the table for both sides.
