Valiant Entertianment emailed The Outhouse (and probably everyone else, those whores) announcing #ValiantCraft Month (otherwise known as August) where each of “Valiant's red-hot August releases” will feature covers with "three-dimensional constructs by artist Donovan Santiago.” The list of affected books is:

• THE DELINQUENTS #1 (of 4)
• HARBINGER: OMEGAS #1 (of 3)
• RAI #4
• ARMOR HUNTERS #3 (of 4)
• UNITY #10
• ARMOR HUNTERS: BLOODSHOT #2 (of 3)
• ARMOR HUNTERS: HARBINGER #2 (of 3)
• X-O MANOWAR #28
• ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #23

So, yea, that’s cool I guess. Here’s a look at The Delinquents #1 (Of 4) by Written by James Asmus & Fred Van Lente:

Oh, is that what they are talking about? That looks like those weird toys and shirts I have to wade through in Hot Topic to get to the Funko’s and Deadpool paraphernalia. What is that thing called? Is it a MindCraft? No, that’s not it…Fuck!

RU: What’s that thing with the blocks that isn’t Lego?

R8YO: Minecraft

RU: Thanks. Now get back to class

Oddly enough, the word “Minecraft” shows up absolutely nowhere in the Valiant press release. At least Marvel had the sense to call them “Lego” variants.

Here are some more:

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
