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) 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.

Yet another "important" cog is out at Valiant Entertainment offices now. I am getting really scared. I think I am going to start preparing for a sudden "vacation" myself from Valiant Comics as a lot of really key peeps are getting the ax (walking away). As long as Lemire is writing, I am there, and as long as the books are good, sure, I will stay on, but man, yeah, I am worried.

Maybe it will be even better. Yeah? It could happen

It really could.  You just never know until the new product comes out.

IF it does. This new owner group is really set on the movie aspect more than the comic side of things. THAT is what has me worried.

Still, all could be just fine, but I don't like it when good people, that have been proven to produce good material, suddenly stop working for the company they themselves brought back into the light.

Hope this turns into a reason for the new guys to keep the comics a'rolling

Oh Boy!

EDIT - And it LOOKS LIKE valiant may be in capable hands after all. Glad the new ownership group (and that term, "Ownership group", is what got me scared in the first place) is given the monthlies a chance to go on!!!

Well just like that, it seems that in a couple months my list of total Valiant titles will consist of a whopping one title.
Just saw the preview for the new Bloodshot series and I am not going to be reading that. Nope. The art is not up to snuff, for me eyes, hope you can dig it, so I am off that title. Also, as "Ninja-K" has (I think) two more issues before that title wraps and a new Ninjak begins ... who knows when, I will be off that title. And lastly, as I have no interest in any of the "new" Valiant titles (Livewire, Faith, etc...) I will not be getting/reading any of those. Yep here soon I will only be getting X-O Manowar it seems.

The only question now is when will X-O fall from my list?

Sad times for me and Valiant.
