Valiant Effort Interacts 009: My Valiant Dad!

It’s another installment of Valiant Effort Interacts, and this time we talk about the person who got me (Josh) into comics: my Dad! My father, Dr. Jamie Eves, is a historian and professor, and when he’s not talking about American History he loves to talk about comics! In this episode we talk about how he started reading comics as a kid, why he prefers independent comics, and how he started reading Valiant Comics in the ’90’s. We end the conversation discussing the current state of the comic book industry, and we talk about his favorite comic book company (the answer may surprise you).
