How We Review

We use a 10/10 rating system for all our reviews, each rating might not be exactly what you’re used to. We wanted a system that was less negative that other rating systems that we’ve seen so to clarify how we rating a book here is our star rating system:

10/10 - Blown away. Generally considered to be a “perfect” comic.
9/10 - Amazing. Near perfect comic. 
8/10 - Loved it. Really enjoyable comic, almost no issues with the book, can’t wait for the next one.
7/10 - Really Enjoyed It. More than like, not quite love. 
6/10 - Liked it. It wasn’t a game changer, but it was enjoyable and it’s still something to recommend and continue reading.
5/10 - Average. Middle of the road comic. 
4/10 - It was ok. Still some good thing about this comic, even if overall it wasn’t the best.
3/10 - Wasn't for me. Others may still enjoy it. 
2/10 - Did not like it. Not a whole lot of, if any, positives to this book.
1/10 - It Was Bad. 
0/10 - Awful. Zero positives, not recommended purchasing this book. 

Our Crew

  • Chris Dresden is a life long comic fan hailing from Glasgow, Scotland. A sometime contributor to site such as All-comic he is always willing to share his thoughts and feelings on comics, movies or tv even when people don’t want to hear. Despite owning a ridiculous number of MARVEL graphic novels has in recent years began amassing an equally impressive collection of smaller press company books too such as Dynamite, IDW, Dark Horse and Image. When not reading Chris can often be found at the local cinema or at home playing video games avoiding interacting with people in-person when possible.

  • Tyler Goulet, owner/founder and editor-in-chief of, has an addiction to comics that seemingly cannot be sated. Reading everything from Hellboy (his favorite character and series) to Batman to Pluto, and other Manga, and most everything in between, there’s not much he can’t talk about or won’t read. He currently resides in Calgary, Canada with his wife Kayla, his son Finan, a black cat named Hailstorm (yes, like the Transformer) and their always-starving, three legged cat Lemmy. (yes, from Motor)

  • Former Contributor

  • Nick has worked with comics for the last 15 years. From garbage disposal, to filing, to grading, he has become a disgruntled, weathered comic fan. A firm believer that comics are meant to be fun and be printed on paper, Nick seeks wacky, bizarre, and head-scratcher comics from every era. Introduced to Ranma ½ at a young age, his love for manga continues to grow, fueling his desire to learn Japanese and effectively avoiding the wait between publication and translation. His love for classic comics originated from a battle between Batroc the Leaper and Captain America, and he’s never turned back. Preferring “reader copies” over pristine comics, he yearns for comics to return to the fun days of the Silver Age buying up anything his bank account can sustain.

  • Martin Ferretti is an avid comic book reader, Hearthstone player, IT professional, father, and all around geek. His fascination with Valiant Comics may be bordering on the insane, but hey, it keeps him happy.

  • Milo is a massive fan of comics, TV, movies, books, games, music and Arsenal FC.

  • Jeremy Matcho is an employee of Amcom/ Xerox. He was born on the hard streets in Guam, and once met George Wendt at a local Jamesway department store. He was first exposed to comics at the tender age of 9, picking up X-Men #1. His favorite character then, and to this day is Cyclops. While he has been a Marvel fan for 20 years, DC is steadily becoming heavy competition. He also is the proud owner of a 2002 ford escort.

  • Dan currently lives in the heart of Philadelphia. He is in pursuit of a Masters degree. Dan loves all things pop culture and has been reading comics for several years now. Even though Dan is a big proponent of digital comics, he still loves the smell of ink on paper and makes a trip to his local shop every week.

  • I was exposed to comics early on, one of my earliest vivid memories was picking up the entire run of Dark Horse’s Aliens vs. Predator(1990). Odd and perhaps morbid choice for a kid, I know…At the same time, I was immersed in the pop culture of the time which included, but not limited to: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, Jurassic Park, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and of course, Batman: The Animated Series. Upon reflection, it’s fairly evident why I’m such a zealous geek. My day job is in television operations, so basically I’m exposed to media at every turn, which is where I want to be! Writing comic book reviews is another outlet to convey my respect and fanaticism for the this graphic medium. I hope what I have to say will resonate with others and also spark heart-felt discussion. Simon Pegg said it best, “Being a geek is extremely liberating.”

  • Alex Mansfield was raised on a steady diet of cereal, cartoons and comics. Despite this, he did manage to raise himself up off the couch just enough to become a functioning member of society. Not a day goes by that a scene from The Simpsons won’t run through his mind, oftentimes when walking his dog named Pants. His love of comics has only grown through the years as the medium continues to find innovative ways to tell stories, whether they’re about cape-wearing modern day myths serving justice or slice of life tales steeped in familiar experiences. You can find his chirpings regarding the awesomeness of comics, craft beer, and why The Big Lebowski should have won every award ever on Twitter @Focusedtotality

  • By day, Derek is a nursing student and caregiver to special needs clients. By night, he is a lifelong comic book fan with many hobbies. When he’s not scouring local hotspots for items to build his gaming and toy collections, he can be found lounging around his mountain of collectibles with his fiancé and cat reading through stacks of comics.

  • By day, Ian Stephen is just a mild nerd who has small obsessions with comics and music. By night however he cooks food for drunken bar patrons while trying not to lose his sanity. Ian listens to lots of underground hip-hop and a vast assortment of indie rock and electronic/trance music along with copious amounts of podcasts. While listening to all that Ian prefers to read lots of comics, lots of comics. Ian is by no means a comic book aficionado but he knows what he likes and doesn’t like. When it comes to comics, Ian follows creators not characters. Ian can be found spouting his form of angry self-expression on Twitter @ianthevillain.

  • Siddharth Gupta is an animation student at the School of Visual Arts. Currently residing in NYC, the icy cold, snow-covered neighborhoods of Minnesota will always be his home. An avid animation and comics fan since childhood, he has turned his passion towards being both a creator and a critic. He credits his love for both mediums to Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball, which has also defined his artistic and comedic sensibilities. A frequent visitor to his local comic book shop, he is an avid reader and collector, and is particularly fond of manga. His favorite comics include Urusei Yatsura by Rumiko Takahashi, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, The Adventures of Tintin by Herge, Bloom County by Berkeley Breathed, and pretty much anything and everything Deadpool.

  • Jessica is a full time comic book lover who still believes Super Heroes are real.

  • Amy is an avid reader who loves Valiant comics, literature, and Star Wars. An English major turned IT professional, she spends free time writing, practicing drums, and enabling her children’s reading habit.

  • Matt Strackbein was born and raised in Maryland but has called Colorado home for the last 17 years where he lives happily in Longmont with his wife. He began reading comic books at the age of seven after discovering a silver age stash in his grandparents’ attic. Comic books inspired Matt to start drawing, which lead to a successful career as a commercial artist. He has worked in the apparel industry for many years as a production artist and designer. His accomplishments include designing backcountry skiwear for world-class athletes as well as downhill ski race suit designs for the 2014 Winter Olympics for the United States and Canadian national ski teams. Matt currently works as a freelance textile-print designer, but still dedicates time to his first love – comics. With over 200 letters to the editor published, Matt is a known letterhack. He self-publishes autobiographical comics about his struggles to break into the industry, which finally paid off when Dark Horse asked him to produce 2-page back up stories in recent issues of B.P.R.D. Besides his own comics, Matt collaborates on independent books as a colorist and letterer. He also teaches the art of making comics to students of all ages.

  • Jesse Izdepski (aka DBS) is a life-long comic book fan and original comic art collector. He is a Patreon Sponsor of the Valiant Database Project, has written 100+ articles & reviews about Valiant comics, & manages the Valiant Universe Fan-Page on Instagram with 75,000+ followers.

  • Allan lives in Wiltshire in the UK with his wife Leah and two daughters Tilly and Carys. In-between working in Social Media for a global technology company and family life, he spends as much time as he can reading comics both old and new, eagerly awaiting his weekly copy of 2000AD to drop through the mailbox. With a busy family life, time is at a premium so whilst Allan’s passion for video games has taken a hit, he tries to catch up with TV shows whenever he can (often at the expense of sleep) but always finds himself back to being nose-deep in a graphic novel or comic.

    An avid Punisher reader for years, Allan has been known to collect Batman and Green Arrow (particularly Quiver on-wards) supplemented by Manga such as Biomega and Ghost in the Shell. In his late 20s (a late bloomer) Allan found a deep love for Judge Dredd and all things 2000AD. A love affair with the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic has blossomed ever since (much to the detriment of his free time).

  • Geordi Demorest used to write for the Fandom Post. He has a passion for manga, although dabbles in comics from all corners of the globe. His favorite manga creators are Asumiko Nakamura, Takako Shimura, and Asano Inio. In truth, Geordi spends most of his free time commenting on comics and cartoons on the internet. Once he has begun, he is unlikely to stop wandering off on a tangent about a manga. As he lives in small town in Saskatchewan, he is all too familiar with the loneliness and isolation of the prairies. On twitter, he goes by the poorly conceived pun of a name Comics Sans. Geordi used to play the bagpipes and fence, the sword kind, although admittedly not well. In terms of superhero comics, his favorite is the new Ms. Marvel series. While he loves artwork, his own drawings are unlikely to bring more than a mocking chuckle to anyone. Geordi’s earlier writings can be found at, the unfortunately named, Cartoon Geek Corner if anyone is curious. The greatest goal in his life is to bring a smile to people’s faces.

  • Chris Campbell lives in Houston, TX with his family where he works for a local restaurant and devours comic books in his free time. He loves all aspects of comics: the artwork, the written word, and even though he is color blind: the amazing colors! Chris has spent many hours doodling super heroes over the years but dreams of one day writing his own comic books.

    He has been a comic book fan since his first pair of Superman Underoos in 1977 and wishes he still had them…a new pair not the same pair. He spent every Saturday morning watching the Super Friends and every weekday watching FIlmation’s Superman, Batman and Aquaman cartoons. Chris was fortunate his grandmother had kept a number of his dad’s old comic books and spent hours rereading them. When he turned 16 his parents gave him a stack of comics from the 60s and he became a collector from then on. Superman books are his favorite but he will read anything with a good story. His newest philosophy on comic books is not to worry about bags and boards but just to enjoy them.

    Chris feels blessed to live in a time where so many comics are brought to life on the big and small screens. Finally, the geeks have taken over the world.

  • Josh Hilgenberg is a comic aficionado, dabbler in video games, and lover of ironic poetry. Right now, he’s reading Batman, Saga, Extremity, and Rock Candy Mountain and an out of control backlog of other books on ComiXology. If pressured into naming his favorite writers, he’d say Brian K. Vaughan, Tom King, and probably Jeff Lemire, but he’d probably be forgetting someone and trail off into something unrelated, like talk about video games. Josh also loves playing video games. He probably spends too much time on his Nintendo Switch, playing one game and waiting for the next to come out in a vicious, yet cathartic, fund draining cycle. He attributes his love for comics, video games to a childhood stuffed with Spyro the Dragon, Star Fox, Pokemon, Dragonball Z, Samurai Jack, and, naturally, Batman: The Animated Series.Hopefully, after he graduates this year, he’ll pull his life together and do something successful with creative writing. You can peek into his stream of consciousness on Twitter @jdotberg.

  • Kayla is a mother to a fantastic seven year old and two cats with a second baby on the way. She adores She-Hulk, the Edmondson/Noto Black Widow, Star Wars, Marvel Movies, Knitting, TV and Skottie Young.

  • Jonathan is a writer, engineer, gamer, and movie aficionado living in Miami, Florida. Starting with an issue of the Clone Saga and kicking into high gear in middle school after reading Watchmen, his obsession with comics knows no bounds. A fan of Aftershock, Archie, Image, Marvel, DC, Valiant, and anything else that might spark his interest, he obviously doesn’t like to pick favorites. You might find him talking about the merits of the superhero as modern mythology or just trying to keep the tears in over whatever memoir comic is in his lap. You can check out his thoughts on Twitter @GeekNterpreter.

  • Dan Moler (aka sonicdan) enjoys many hobbies mostly involving music, art, and comics.
    Raised on Marvel Comics, Star Wars toys, and Nintendo, he is now a video game retailer and pop culture enthusiast.
    Dan discovered Valiant Comics in his formative years and has been a dedicated fan ever since.
    He runs which specializes in collecting Valiant original art, comics and memorabilia. Dan is a proud father. Skateboarder. Bongo player. From Nebraska! He can be found on twitter @DanMoler

  • Ryan Winn was adopted into the Cult of Comics at the tender age of three. Before he could read words, his eyes soaked up the stories found in the pictures of the comics presented to him by the elders of the cult. At this early age he grew fond of titles such as The Avengers by Gene Colon, John Byrne’s Fantastic Four, and even R. Crumb’s Fritz the Cat. But it was Batman that locked Ryan in as lifelong member.

    As one does when raised in such a cult, Ryan dedicated his life to the medium upon reaching adulthood. After years of studying and creating in secret, he found his way into the industry as an apprentice to multiple adepts such as Danny Miki, John Livesay, and Joe Weems. After earning credits of his own with many of the top trade publishers including a journey to Gotham City, he settled in at a rag tag company called Valiant.

    Ryan has now reached the stage in his life where his duties shift to sharing the knowledge and love he has acquired for this medium. A medium that has been a place of escape for so many. A medium that has brought so many together. A medium that shows us who we are and what we can be. A medium that deserves to be shared.

    You can also find him on twitter. He calls himself Tracer X but it’s really just @ryanwinn.
