We go back to High School, along with all our favorite heroes, in Valiant High. We take a deep look at this new digital only book from Valiant Comics.

We start the conversation with non-spoiler thoughts, then we jump into the spoilers after our patented warning.

We liked this book quite a bit, so we talk a while about what stood out about it, and how it rewards the Valiant Faithful with plenty of humor, jokes, and references. There is also quite a bit of meat to discuss, such as who the spooky gardener is, what is Colin King really up to, and does Kris has to do with it.
