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.
