Ah, Valiant Entertainment. You tease. You dirty, dirty tease.
As I've documented in this column before
, I've long been a fan of Valiant Comics. Back in the 90s, when the company was at its peak (both creatively and commercially) I went all-in and became a heavy reader of many, many Valiant Comics. I started with Magnus: Robot Fighter
but I was, at various times, a faithful reader of X-O Manowar, Rai, Shadowman, Archer and Armstrong
and several other titles. Those that I didn't read weren't because they weren't quality books, but because I was a high school student with no job and an extremely limited income. Then Valiant was bought by Acclaim, then the company spiraled down into oblivion. And as a fan, it hurt.
