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 045: Enter: Armorines

Enter: Nick and Josh for another jam-packed episode of Valiant Effort. This time we’re talking about the 8th XO Manowar trade. Josh wants a world without politics, Nick wants a world with an Armorines Saturday morning cartoon, and Nick and Josh both want a world where they can do math. So put on your thinking caps and get ready for a tiny Nick and Josh to whisper another episode right in your ear.

Episode 38: Armor Hunters, Part III

It’s our third episode covering Valiant’s Summerfest! Do we have Armor Hunters fatigue? Absolutely not! In this episode we discuss the seventh X-O Manowar trade, or the trade that should truly be called Prelude to Armor Hunters. Topics include: our theories on the armor’s origins, the importance of friendship, and how we really, really, want the Armor Hunters to be an ongoing series.

Please note: we recorded this episode before the X-O Manowar 25th Anniversary Special came out. Tune in to see if our theories about the armor and the Vine are right or wrong!

Episode 38: Armor Hunters, Part III

And don’t forget our iTunes reviews for a trailer! You have until the end of June. Thanks for listening!

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.

Episode 36: Armor Hunter, Part I

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!
