Next Stop, Valiant Entertainment!
Last month, Patrick Michael Strange and I visited the mid-town Manhattan offices of Valiant Entertainment. As you may know, Valiant Comics re-launched late last year after a successful run in the mid-nineties prior to being bought out by video gaming company, Acclaim.
To say that Patrick is a huge fan of the comics line would be a tremendous understatement. He followed a number of the original Valiant comics storylines and is always giving the books a shout out on the show. Patrick met and interviewed Valiant publisher, Fred Pierce, at the 2012 Baltimore Comic Con. Afterwards, I reached out to Valiant CEO, Dinesh Shamdasani.
So we interviewed Dinesh, VP and Senior Editor, Warren Simons and Editor Jody LeHeup. Marketing Director, Hunter Gorinson was also very helpful. The entire Valiant staff made us comfortable and we departed with a ton of great swag, some of which will be made available to viewers as the prizes in our next contest. And we look forward to maintaining and strengthening our relationship with the gang at Valiant. Now that we’ve spoken with management, we’ll catch up with Valiant talent to create a special episode that is guaranteed to knock your socks off. Keep watching, the best is yet to come!
