DMG has purchased full ownership of Valiant, and the leadership that forged the Valiant Universe for the last six years has been forced out, or has left the company. We haven't yet fully seen the new shape of Valiant, and it is not clear that things will stay up, or if we may see another downturn.

The original OTV duo, Sean and Chiclo, get together to discuss the changes happening at Valiant as a result of this purchase by DMG, what the changes may mean, what we might expect as a result, and what we will be paying attention to as this story develops.

As we meander, we discuss some of the great hits of the last few years, and some of the Classic Valiant comics of yesteryear, and what we saw as the Classic Valiant comics declined due to the purchase by Acclaim.

How hard do we think it will be for Valiant to keep the publishing line going like it has? What is the best case scenario? What is the worst case scenario?

Plus, we are giving away a copy of Ninjak Vs The Valiant Universe card game, courtesy of Overworld Games. Tune in for contest details!

The Gorin epic comes to a close, and the new Shadowman epic starts off with a bang. Loas and Lightning swords! Plenty to discuss in this week's episode of Valiant Comics Review, where we talk about the new Valiant books as soon as they are on stands.

First up, the Gorin epic comes to a close in X-O Manowar #13, and the planet seems to get a happy ending. What did we think of this wrap up, and what kind of light does it cast the entire run so far in? Also, we get the big reveal of what sent Aric away from Earth in the first place, and why he had such animosity with the armor.

Second, we discuss Shadowman #1, the return of Jack Boniface to the Shadowman mantle! We take a look at the things from past continuity that this story follows up on, and weigh in on some of the things that aren't as well represented. Plus, we get some hints at some of what may be coming, and Alyssa is cool.

Spoiler alert! We're going to talk all about these books, read them before listening!

First up, we discuss Quantum and Woody #4, in which our heroes end up in Sydney, and find out just what the heck has been behind all of the recent events in their life. The brothers remain the brothers, and that seems to be the source of their problems.
