Title: Goodbye Valiant?
Post by: Perry on January 29, 2018, 02:24:27 PM
Well I see where Valiant Entertainment has been sold. No more of the good guys keeping people like Jeff Lemire on board. I just listened to an interview with Jeff Lemire (over at 11 O'Clock Comics ... check it out HERE (http://11oclockcomics.com/2018/01/26/11-oclock-comics-episode-519/)) and he praised the guys at Valiant for letting them (writers) have all the creative freedom they want, but now that a "movie" firm has taken control over Valiant, I just fear the entire publishing side will slide to places I don't enjoy.

I will stay on Valiant titles for as long as I can and I hope I am both wrong and worrying for nothing; that the quality of the comics will remain high, but you know how these things can go.

I will miss you Dinesh Shamdasani. A better CEO I could not have imagined

Bummer.  Sounds like it'll be moving to more a film centrist company and the comic book people are on the way out.

Yeah, every vibe I perceive just makes me feel that the Valiant that has existed, since, what, 2009? is really going to be gone.
