Stoneman covers for Royal Nonesuch on the Valiant news front.
Source: Press Release
Hi there, loyal Outhouse readers. Stoneman - Chief of Outhouse Standards and Practices here, filling in for Royal Nonesuch, who's been suspended above a tank filled with venomous cobrasharks by henchmen acting under the orders of Hitler Teapot, Lead Forum Moderator of ComicBookResources.com, in an attempt to force The Outhouse to turn down their snark. I want them to know that kidnapping the only one of our reporters with any class isn't going to stop these internet hooligans from saying outrageous and inappropriate things about comics, but I wholly support their goal of making the internet a sanitized and unfunny place where only the wholesome, corporate public relations department approved facts are reported in a straight and emotionless manner.
With that in mind, here's the latest press release from Valiant Entertainment, a company that I know is close to poor Royal Nonesuch's heart. It talks about the company's plans for HeroesCon in Charlotte, North Carolina this weekend. I would be remiss if I didn't, at least once, refer to the fine and professional people at Valiant as The Flyin' V, a crass nickname Royal has been using to describe the company.
Here's the press release:
