Historical Event Template

I have just created the {{HistoricalEventInfobox}} template and all the additional templates (e.g. Historical Event Appearances, Historical Event Universe). The main template is quite similar to all the other infobox templates, there's the main infobox and additional text fields for history, veterans, paraphernalia.

http://valiant.wikia.com/wiki/World_War_I
http://valiant.wikia.com/wiki/World_War_II

More events to be added soon. The template can also be used for fictional events of course; e.g. HWARS, or all the conflicts mentioned in the "Fall of..." books.

Happy Birthday, Jim Shooter!

We wouldn't have (had) any Valiant comics without him.

Disambiguation ... continued!

I created the following template...

http://valiant.wikia.com/wiki/Template:DisambiguationText

...for 4 reasons: 1) no need to copy & paste the text anymore 2) consistency 3) easy to edit the actual text (for all pages) 4) easy to check what pages already use the template and where it still needs to be applied.

http://valiant.wikia.com/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:DisambiguationText

Final question - Do we keep the "Publications" section or not? If yes, should it list "all" publications or only major volumes (ongoing+mini) as all the extra issues (zero, special, annual, etc.) are listed on the specific volume page anyway.

(long vs short list)
http://valiant.wikia.com/wiki/Divinity

(short list separated by publisher)
http://valiant.wikia.com/wiki/X-O_Manowar

Are you in favor of...
- a complete list
- a short list
- no list

http://valiant.wikia.com/wiki/Valiant_Universe

http://valiant.wikia.com/wiki/Valiant_Universe

As of now (mid-September 2017), this is the worst page of the entire wikia.

Wrong information.
Wrong interpretations.
Bad layout.*
Plus broken links and such.
Last not least, too much useless information.

* Most of the content is history yet the history section is entirely empty... but keep adding to the notes section. No content but notes galore. <thumbs_up>

The comic book collector's consensus... what does "comic book" stand for? There are only 3 such universes and it's basically a product of 3 publishers owning the rights to Valiant IPs over the years. The others are separate, separate (universes) from the comic books!!! There should be two lists:
- comic books
- other media

And these 2 lists is all this page should really focus on.

Keeping it simple.
Keeping it to facts.
Don't over-think and over-interpret stuff....

"Valiant Digital First" still is not a publisher but an umbrella term used by comixology only.
"Multiple forms of media" is TMI for this page.
"Alternative Continuities" - Unity-2000, an unfinished mini-series, should not be even mentioned here. The other two are a possible future and a mass hallucination, both of which still take place in the very same VEI universe and continuity.

Faith and The Future Force #2 Discussion

Hi, I'm usually don't do this until the series has ended like Manowar, but heck it.

Well, I'm having mixed opinions of F&TFF, for now I'm going to start with the positive, the issue was a helluva fun, more than the first issue, I'm gonna grant them that, the guest artists are very good no doubt about it and Ulises Arreola is a great colorist.

-Spoilers to minimum-

Damn, they should have make that no one could drawn Neela except for Stephen Segovia, the dialogue again was fun, and the pacing is correct the characters act as one would expect from them. And now to end this I've have that is not a bad aspect from the comic, but the story is just fanservice.

I know that I praised the art, and I know that Faith is cute, but artist don't agree on how to draw her face, sometimes she is more fat sometimes not, Jelena draw the face of model and put the face on Faith's body. Now apart from the art, nothing really happened in this issue, ok, I know what you gonna say, but the only action was not pretty exciting, it was kinda obvious how it was gonna end(how it was going to start), it's just to make a difference on the power levels.

We don't have more info on the robot except its name and some plato quotes to make him look intimidating(it was already intimidating not need to force it) and funny but it was not bad. But I don't want the story to repeat so much

So we have two issues that are set-up and two issues to end this event. So things have to changed on F&TFF #3.

Now I'm glad to see again all my favorite characters from Valiant, but that's what the point I was going, is just a big crossover event to gather up all the characters and make them do something, It's fanservice, and fanservice by itself is not bad, Valiant Hight was great for example and maybe that's the reason and not being so hard nor so soft with this event.

We could see Aric from Vine Hunters and the Eternal Warrior, even if it just for two issues more(now that I remember Aric owed a favor to Neela Sethi good one Fred and Jody), I still think it could be a lot better If Fred Van Lente was doing this, but he is occupied with War Mother, but for the worst part was the repetition and lack of action, the best funny dialogue and good pacing.

I hope Issue 3 could be better. So what do you think? Do you hate it?, do you love it?, c'mon people.

X-O Manowar Captain arch ended. Opinions?

Hi, y'all, how've you been this recently?, anyway, let's get down on this issue, oh, boi, I can fairly say that every issue of X-O Manowar have been better than the last one, I like to expect it every month, something special that makes me smile.

They have advanced a lot in six issues, and it does not feel all that rushed, as I was thinking it would be, it's not slow either, just right, they made a good decision with only three issues per arch, despite my early doubt.

We keep seeing more facets of Aric, and more developed diplomatic side, like his conversation with the Burnt King was priceless, despite Aric does not reveal so much of his past on this book and often lies about it, like the recent issue Six, really Aric?, really?, but he feels really more mature than his past being. But he wants to hide something.

The action and dynamic are superb, Matt Kindt really understand what is a comic and he has been working with really good talents, he knows how to write that actions scenes, really being a writter and comic book artist has its advantages when it comes to Matt Kindt, there is not too much boring dialogue and it appear it's good. It's interesting, It's memorable, I didn't find yet a pointless point(not pun intended) on this book yet.

Now talking about the arch, I want to say, that Dough Braiwaithe, is one of my favorite from Valiant, it was love at the first sight when I read Unity for first time. Now, Diego Rodriguez is very different from Brian Reber, Diego uses more cold colors, but it has a warn feeling on the daylight scenes, Giving it a different atmosphere, he seems the kind of guy I would like to color for an Alien planet, so I hope I would see him again after Clayton Crain ends his part on X-O(HYPE!), he really give a fresh feeling to Dough's art on this book, issue five has one my favorites pages right now.

And that was X-O Manowar Captain, a good evolution of the previous work, a step forward. they ended up with a great cliff hanger, I still don't know what's up with the armor, why Aric don't want to wear it all, I understand they need to keep the mystery(and it would be too easy with X-O) but step by step he is adding more to it. I'm more curious about it we would see more about Shanhara(read the Venditti run) than just the armor itself and what that means for Aric, but those things can wait, for now I like that Matt and his team keep painting this great blank canvas that is the Planet Gorin and probalby they keep expanding the cosmic stuff with Divinity this October.

Well, that's all for me, what have you think about this arch? do you like it?, what was your favorite chapter of this arch?, what was your favorite issue of these six? Do you hate it?, do you like it?, we already talked about the renumeration of X-O, but I can take it whenever you want(COME GET SOME), see ya' later compass points. Love you.

My new favorite cover.... by JKD

Absolutely stunning and funny perspective. Looks like that thing is banging its head to the edge of the cover.

Disscusion: DIVINITY #0

Hi, y'all, our past disscusion, was great, but it's over and wear off, to be honest to ourselves, so Is time to move on, I want to say, I'm not gonna do a disscusion about Secret Weapons, until is over, SO DON'T TALK ABOUT SECRET WEAPONS HERE. *Couhg*, excuse me, well, Divinity like series and character has been one of my favorite in valiant recently, I still remember the first time when I read it, it was after I finished The Valiant, an awesome book, and I didn't expect to find another as good so quickly(one day). And every Divinity series has scalated and evolved to something more, something new.

Now Valiant has an attachment to jumping on points for new readers, new entries for new fans, and they try not just summarize all, but to make it entertaining for the reader, to make a lesson out of this, and that is what Divinity 0 is, another brief issue to please old and new readers.

-SPOILERS DON'T READ UNTIL You've read the isse-

Ok, not that we have that clear, and we already have the history of the valiant universe by Rafer Roberts in Rai, I have to say, that Divinity #0 it answers a few question about Divinity III stalinverse, about the Red Brigade, so these beings like Divnity might not be as powerful as we believed, but powerful to bent reality and to give form to these characters to cause a mass hallucination of the Red Brigade, at least that was what I understand, but I still I'm not very clear bout' what happened with Livewired, she was dead or it was another mental display?

We can see how the universe of Valiant has changed, through the retrospective point of view of Abram Adams, the quality of the lettering is superb and it does not create such a huge conflict the amazing art, and talking about the art, this was really the strong point of the whole book.

Now I've seen Renato Guedes in at least two valiant books, bloodshot reborn #0 and Eternal Warrior Awekening, both one-shots, with different colorist, but they have in common an strong and clean inking, very detailed, Three-dimensional, but his painting is another stuff, it was almost like Paolo Rivera had a child with Esad Ribic, ok, sorry for that mental image, but it really was awe-inspiring, so I think they may wanted to capture to feeling of looking back to see how much has someone moving on, that reminiscence. And I think they done it perfectly.

Sadly it just give us more questions about Aric, last time we see him was on Stalinverse, and he is pissed-off at somethin', but for what?, I think it might be related to Stalinverse in some way.

I'm not sure if I really expected something more, Mat Kindt does well, and the issue alone, it gave me a good time, maybe I wanted something to tie-in with the new Eternity book, so I think I prefer a little one-shot by Rafer Roberts about Rai, but let us hope that Valiant will do more amazing stuff like with an artist like this. My uncle loves Divnity so I think he may liked it, but sadly the previews spoils us the end page. That was an error from Valiant more than us for looking(or not?).

Well, say what you want about this issue, how it made you feel, how you think it was, do you like do you not. I think it was fairly good.

For now as events go i'm looking forward to DC's The Metal and the end of Rapture by Matt Kind, and a few other series as well.

Disscusion Harbinger Renegade 6

Welp, my attempt to now what other people liked to read was a failure, so I'll keep this Valiant related(yay!), now this single issue was nothing of what I was expecting, but seeing the names of Juan José Ryp and Andrew Dalhouse I was pretty sure it would out something good about it, and damn, I was one of the best single issues from Valiant this year, sadly it does not explain too much anything, but more than a set up to give explanations later, it's full of action, energy and even quite moments that let the story breath, it was a good work, again, not what I expected, but happy to read it, I guess this explains the little absence of Ryp during the end of Britannia second book.

And well, I had my doubts of Rafer Roberts being cleared every issue, specially this one, but ah, we'll see what the future depart us on Harbinger Wars 2. Damn, I need to read Shaper, but I digress, what do you think about Harbinger Renegade 6? Do you love it? do you hate it?, I personally didn't like that we didn't see the Renegades... but that's all. See ya' soon beautiful people.

IMPORTANT -- template change -- "Link2App"

This is about the combo link template displaying the number of appearances! I removed the original template (Info Link) because everyone favored the second version (Info Link2). "Info Link2" sounds weird so I renamed the template:

"Link2App"

The template was/is in use on the following pages that I've already updated accordingly: United States, Africa, and Giza.

The new template was also used on "Eternal Warrior Vol 2 1" but I removed it from the "Appearances" list (under Locations) there. This template should not be used under "Appearances" because it looks confusing and doesn't actually add to the appearance.

Here's the original post (just in case):

So no Valiant this week... what else are you Reading?

Exactly that the tittle says, the only book we got is X-O Manowar Deluxe Edition 5, now that's great, but not new issues. I know is a little off topic, but I would like to know what the Valiant community reads aside from Valiant, good series today come out like World Reader, Extremity, East of West, Seven to Eternity, and we even got a new number one of Turok! from Dynamite Entertainment of course. Also Superman #28 came out today, is the book on DC right now as X-O Manowar is the best book right now on Valiant, to make a small simile. So, njoy what you are reading today, while Valiant is not there(didn't sound that bad, maybe I can do this another week like this).

Faith and the Future Force, Opinions? -SPOILER-

Hi y'all! how have been you today?, I lost a lot of stuff, but don't mind it, we are to talk about Faith, I would leave manowar for the end of the arch, well, you've been warning, so don't read this, unless you have read the issue.

Also, who's the special guest?, I would like to know.

It was not bad at all, it was interesting at the best, but it was not the best set up for an event, and Valiant has had some EPIC events, but I'm not saying this could not be one, I'm glad to see Neela as Timewalker again, but I think this book should be written by Fred Van Lente, since he created all this plot and characters for one of the coolest books from Valiant, Ivar Timewalker, but Jody has been writting decent stories for Faith, so I don't know she can be good sometimes, I would like to think as Fred is a consultant for this book, but that's unsure, the art is very good, Neela is more sexy than ever thanks to Segovia, Ulises arreola and his sick colors can blow you away, and I would really want a solo book of Neela or something to continue the plot of Ivar, sorry if I digress, but there is not so much I can mention about FFF, except that it leave me interested for more.

Now THE SPOILER, of course it leave me surprised the death in that book, even if they hinted it, but it was more shock value, but at least one that leave me a little hooked for this, it seems the plot can escalate to something big or better, it almost feels of something that Fred would do but not with the same energy, and I liked a lot to see the Renegades again in an event and with Segovia's art, but sadly the new kid is not with them, only Ax, and then it ends, so I would like to give it an opportunity to get better, there are lot of characters that can appear and maybe it can be fun, or not?. What do you say?, do you liked this issue?, you don't like it?, say what you want.

See ya' later folks.

Disscusion Harbinger Renegade: Massacre Part 1.

Be careful with what you wish for, it may come true...
And that's exactly what this issue was for me, damn, I was really excited for reading it waiting it all these months, after the ATROCIOUS(really) work of Fred Van Lente with Generation Zero, I wanted order, and there's no order without chaous. As the Marvel entities taught us(Lord Chaos and Master Order) but I digress, this issue was insanely fast and hooked me a lot, and I know I'm going to sound like a bastard, but I almost enjoyed what happened to Gen Zero, if like they deserved it after their series, but I did feel it in the end. I've read a few weeks ago again Harbinger Wars and even if was not the best that Valiant has to offer was very fun to read(wihout the tie-ins this time)

Funny, I was questioning myself is Valiant has gone a little soft in this fool PC era, but, I'm glad I was wrong. I can't ask more for this issue, it has the level of adrenaline that I need and it keep looking forward for more(I was going to use the violent Camuncoli cover but this is more suitable)
