Thought Of The Day: A Week Without Valiant

March 8th 2017 was the first Wednesday in a long time that I didn't have a review of one or more of Valiant's comics either written or half written for Graphic Policy. Not because I suddenly decided to stop reading the publisher's offerings, but because this week there were no Valiant comics released on New …

Review: Faith #1

You're going to hear a lot about Faith  in the coming days, weeks and months. First reappearing in the relaunched Valiant Universe in 2012 in Harbinger,  Faith, codenamed Zephyr, was often ton the receiving end of many digs about her weight; perhaps the most often quoted one is a passerby remarking "that fat girl sure is …

But as he tries to make sense of his surroundings, he’s quickly discovering that this is no ordinary tropical getaway…  After the somewhat disappointing conclusion  of the otherwise enjoyable The Analogue Man in Bloodshot Reborn #13  left us set up remarkably well for the new story Bloodshot Island. And this is …

Review: Rai #14

 As the Rai of 4001 A.D. (the timeline, not the story) is currently starring in 4001 A.D. (yeah, that time it's the story), for the 14th issue of the ongoing Rai series we're tracing another chapter of New Japan's past.  One of the most consistent things about this comic is the quality of the art; indeed, it …

Review: Divinity II #3

I don't envy the position that Divinity II is in. The sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed series, it's currently vying for you attention amidst another sequel event from Marvel, DC's Rebirth, and Valiant's very own summer event 4001 A.D. (which also has a tie in comic released this week). Matt Kindt, who …
