Seeking To Deliver Death Blow to Industry Valiant Announces '90s Brushed Metal Variant

In 2017, Valiant Entertainment looks to bring down the comics industry by unashamedly reviving the extravagance of the '90s. The relaunched X-O Manowar #1 will ship with a brushed metal variant cover in an effort to put style over substance. Instead of letting the book speak for itself, Valiant is shipping it with 5 variant covers, even though in an interview with former Marvel Associate Manager - Sales & Communications Jim Viscardi at Comic Book Dot Com, Valiant CEO Dinesh Shamdasani said, "We're a storytelling company. Variants are, at best, secondary at Valiant," clearly putting his money where his mouth is.

When reached for comment, former Marvel editor and now Valiant editor Tom Brennan said, "It doesn't matter what I say, you're just gonna make something up and run it, aren't you?"

Brennan then reached out to The Outhouse to add, "Also, I hate you."
