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!

Good morning, Valiant listeners….

Episode 19: H.A.R.D. Corps

Here comes Valiant Effort invading Harada’s Headquarters with our review of the fourth Bloodshot trade.  In this episode Nick’s mouth is full of ideas, is Disciple right justifying killing, and whose book is this anyway because Bloodshot seems to be taking a back seat.  Plus: murder in the studio.  Who dies and who’s the murderer?
