One of the greatest moments of this past weekend was getting to meet and chat with Robert Venditti, writer of X-O Manowar, Green Lantern, The Flash and more. His book is what got me hooked on the Valiant Universe and it continues to be one of the best series released every month. We get to discuss the current Dead Hand, the upcoming Book of Death as well as take a look at some unseen pages for both that and Green Lantern. Well… I got to see it, not you. This is just a recording after all. Suffice it to say, they are all amazing and if you see “Robert Venditti” on a book you need to just buy it straight away. This also includes a special guest appearance from Atom Freeman, who promises that Book of Death has a least two things that nobody has ever done before, so there’s that. Tons of love to Valiant and the guys at the booth, Robert, Atom, Pete and Dan who are all fantastic guys and really made it a personal highlight of the show. I’m sure you’ve never heard this before but go and read some f*cking Valiant!

Follow Valiant Comics, Robert Venditti on Twitter too, while you’re at it, and keep up to date with this great company and fantastic writer and person. Once again to Valiant and Robert, thank you for taking the time and making the Calgary Expo excellent.

Don’t forget, we’re also on SoundCloud!
