Valiant Tease Big Announcements Today
that does sound rather Solar, Man Of The Atom It is  based on the description, "brighter than a thousand suns", based on the verse from the Bhagavad Gita that J Robert Oppenheimer is said to have recalled at the Trinity nuclear test. Might it have anything to do with the Valiant Free Comic Book Day tease[...]
Is Valiant Bringing Back Solar Man Of The Atom In 2021?
We knew there was The Harbinger, Savage and Ninjak coming – but this is the first news that there is a Faith series returning to Valiant. Is Valiant Bringing Back Solar Man Of The Atom and Unity In 2021? But also, on the back inside cover page with this image, with the phrase 'The Universe Is Not[...]
Writer's Commentary – Ray Fawkes On The Sovereigns #5
Never let anybody say that The Sovereigns wasn't ambitious, hah! Page 10-14: The final stage of the plan does involve getting blown up, yes. Page 15: And yeah, Magnus and Samson (and Turok and Solar and Spektor, in their own ways) all actually saved the world They saved us all! But at WHAT COST, etc. Pages 16-18: Oh[...]

They give with one hand and take away with the other, as in Suicide Risk #20. Solar #8 chooses a very unflattering angle to arrive Seriously, someone will instagram that and you'll be a Meme Of The Atom. Flash Gordon #7 discovers the comforts of space travel, with some ergonomic design Let's just hope those are drinkholders[...]
39 Thoughts About 39 Comics – Axis, Harley Quinn, Spider-Woman, Bobs Burgers, Age Of Darkness, Crossed, Zero, Transformers, Peanuts, Magnus, Lumberjanes, Batwoman, Regular Show, Batman Eternal, Batman/Superman, Justice League, Invincible, Winter World, Maxx, Hellraiser, Godzilla, Feary, Dawn/Vampirella, Last Fall, Terminal Hero, My Little Pony, Super Secret Crisis War, Sleepy Hollow, Storyteller: Witches, Star Slammers, Sons Of Anarchy, Solar, Rot & Ruin, Deadly Class, Dicks, God Is Dead, D&D, Bravest Warriors
That's some serious skills in Solar #7. You know it's incentive schemes like this, from Rot & Ruin #3, that are making the modern workplace a much more competitive place to be.   Whereas Deadly Class #9 makes it a little more religious… And God Is Dead #24 hammers it home As it were. And then Dicks #6 calls on…[...]
47 Thoughts About 46 Comics – Axis, Game Of Thrones, Superman Unchained, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Bloodshot, Suicide Risk, Fairy Quest, Garfield, Fiction Squad, Hulk, American Legends, Artifacts, Life After Logan, Weapon X Program, Dr Mirage, Regular Show, Eternal Warrior, Woods, Empty Man, God Hates Astronauts, Ghost Fleet, Day Men, Gotham Academy, Amazing World Of Gumball, Grayson, Over The Garden Wall, Real Heroes, Nailbiter, Velvet, Cloaks, Futures End, Penny Dora, Lil Vampirella, Detective Comics, Action Comics, Green Arrow, Lobo, Turok, Robocop, Worlds End, Chew, John Carter, Blood Queen, Jennifer Blood And Solar
Surely it's only a manner of time? 75 years after George R R Martin's death? Solar #6 faces up to the dangers that keeping a pet at home can bring Actually, I think Chew has something to say about that as well… Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London, proud to announce their first in a line of new[...]
32 Thoughts About 32 Comics – Batman Eternal, Multiversity, Thor, Original Sin, Uncanny Avengers, Uncanny X-Men, Wolverine & The X-Men, Miles Morales, Trees, Supreme, Sirens, All New X-Men, Deadpool, Gwen Stacy, Superior Spider-Man, The Shadow, Solar, Purgatori, The Wicked + The Divine, Devilers, Translucid, Bionic Woman, Hellraiser, Storyteller,  Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, Cataclysm, Turtles In Time, X-Files, Transformers, Maxx, Littlest Pet Shop And Judge Dredd
Also, Dr Fate may have something to say about this. Dr Fate criticises Multiversity's decision to use the same plot as The Avengers right now. Why do I guess that this is the comic that will have been really underordered this week? Gwen Stacy as a Spider-Man in Edge Of Spider-Verse, and also having to deal with those really nice,[...]
38 Thoughts About 38 Comics – Outcast, Saga, Trees, Chew, Revival, C.O.W.L, Justice League, Futures End, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Batman Eternal, New Avengers Annual, Uncanny Avengers, Batman, Original Sins, Savage Hulk, Wolverine, X-Force, Invincible, X-Files, Turok, Flash Gordon, Dejah Of Mars, Solar, Super Secret Crisis War, Transformers x2, 24, Deceivers, Green Hornet, Bravest Warriors, Amazing World Of Gumballs, Clockwork Angels, Nightbreed, Peanuts, 7th Sword, Ghostbusters, My Little Pony And Turtles
The new version is a little more world weary… or universe weary… about it all though. Solar #3 also goes for the blasé, when changing clothes through molecular manipulation, anyone else in the room just isn't bothered…. Dejah Of Mars #2 threatens death by mouth I really hope no one find this kind of thing erotic… I find it[...]
47 Thoughts About 47 Comics – Forever Evil, Original Sin, Batman Eternal, Saga, Harley Quinn, Magnus, The Shadow x2, Uncanny X-Men, Amazing Spider-Man, Velvet, Prophet, Solar, Doop, Rogue Trooper, Red Hood, Star Mage, Batman And Frankenstein, Wonder Woman, Batman/Superman, Justice League Of America, Hulk, Windblade, Star Slammers, Indestructible, THUNDER Agents, Invincible, East Of West, Mind The Gap,  Zero, TMNT,  V Wars, 7th Sword, Dexter's Lab, My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, Monster & Madman, Artifacts, Battlestar Galactica, Pathfinder, Flash Gordon, Rocket Girl, Six Million Dollar Man, Green Hornet, The Bunker and Amy Devlin
Because there is plenty to go around… Both imaginary, from Uncanny X-Men... And real! From the dangerous of Amazing Spider-Man… To the dangerous and elderly of Harley Quinn… To the protective of Solar #2… The staged of Saga… The classic of Velvet… The tender of Prophet… Sometimes it's nice to just celebrate a kiss, whatever the reason[...]
