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!

Episode 43: The Delinquents

Forget Armor Hunters, this is the crossover event you’ve been waiting, (…or maybe not) Archer & Armstrong and Quantum & Woody join forces to fight corporate farming! Tune in to listen to Josh struggle to talk intelligently about Monsanto when he really doesn’t know what he’s talking about, and Nick just struggles to read the book. It’s The Delinquents!

In the Valiant Effort Podcast,
It’s a land that’s fair and bright,
The podcasts grow on bushes
And a new episode every night.
The earphones all are playin’
And the sun shines every day
I’m bound to go
To the best show
Where the edits are small
And the conversations flow
In the Valiant Effort Podcast.

Episode 34: Crooked Pasts, Present Tense

…And we’re back! Our schedules have cleared up and we’re ready to talk some Quantum & Woody. In this episode we talk about depth of character, dynamic panel layouts and goat babies! We’re very excited to finally be talking some comics again, so set your fancy new apple watch to the Valiant Effort Podcast!

Episode 34: Crooked Pasts, Present Tense

Also, 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 15: The World’s Worst Superhero Team

Let’s read the first volume of Quantum and Woody and explore some of Valiant’s lighter fare.  Or is it?  We argue that this is some of the deepest work Valiant has put out to date, just with jokes.  So get your headphones and listen to us laugh our way through some serious conversation. Meh!
