Valiant Effort 050: The Valiant

Holy cow! We’ve made it to our 50th regular episode, and this time we’re talking about the critically acclaimed mini-series The Valiant. We talk about the creepy Mr. Flay, Gilad’s scars and the deaths of women in comics. If you haven’t read this story yet make sure you do before listening to this, and if you’ve already read it, read it again. Seriously! You won’t regret it.

On a personal note, it has been a blast for us recording these fifty episodes and we really appreciate you listening along with us. Here’s to fifty more!

Valiant Effort 048: The Glitch & Other Tales

It’s that time again, another episode of Valiant Effort. This time we’re wrapping up the original Bloodshot run with volume 6. Is Bloodshot more machine than man? Is love a glitch? Does this volume have enough comic in it? All this and more including Josh’s thought on the new A Sound of Thunder album. Thanks for listening!

Episode 39: Armor Hunters, Part IV

It’s Bloodshot’s turn in our Armor Hunters Summerfest! This episode we discuss what the Nanite Crusader was up to while the Armor Hunters were destroying the planet. Tangents in this episode include discussions on Lilt’s character design, euthanasia (sorry for the heavy topic), and elbow macaroni (not as heavy a topic). Also in this episode Nick holds his first chromium cover.

Episode 39: Armor Hunters, Part IV

Lastly, this is your final opportunity to see the trailer to the movie Nick and I made when we were in High School. The movie is bad and so is the trailer and you know you want to see it. Just a couple of more iTunes reviews and we’ll post it here!

Episode 37: Armor Hunters, Part II

It’s part two of our Summerfest Extravaganza! In this episode we talk about the third Unity trade which also ties into Armor Hunters. We talk about what we like and don’t like out of Unity so far and we also discuss how well this story fits in with the overall story of Armor Hunters!

Episode 37: Armor Hunters, Part II

Also, remember to tweet your #VagueNews fake spoilers at Nick’s twitter handle @loungefly02!

And lastly, you’re running out of time! Your intrepid hosts, Nick and Josh, made a movie in High School. Do you want to see the trailer to that (awful) movie? Five new itunes reviews by the end of June will lead to our forever embarrassment. So get reviewing world or the trailer goes back in the vault!

Episode 36: Armor Hunters, Part I

The HUGE Armor Hunters Event 2014 is finally being covered by us and it’s so exciting Nick fell asleep while recording the episode. And if you think I’m joking, tune-in to find out why and try not to laugh too much at the poor guy. In this episode we talk about whether or not Aric has really changed, teeth pulling and Arnold action lines. Also, Nick has no idea how many episodes it’s going to take to fully cover Armor Hunters, but the ground floor is here.

One more thing: your intrepid hosts, Nick and Josh, made a movie in High School. Do you want to see the trailer to that (awful) movie? Five new itunes reviews by the end of June will lead to our forever embarrassment. So get reviewing world or the trailer goes back in the vault!

It’s ’90’s nostalgia time on Valiant Effort.  In this issue we explore five episodes of Bloodshot, specifically Bloodshot Volume 5: Get Some! Why are these characters so muscley? Can Valiant tell a story with a realistic romance? What is Nick’s breaking point?  Tune in now to get some of this… and more!

Good morning, Valiant listeners….
