An episode on Valiant comics. The imprint started by former Marvel Editor-in-Cheif around the same time as Image comics. Notable for their surprisingly mature approach to writing and creation, as in actual depth as opposed to violence and nudity.
How three nearly forgotton franchises from the 60's that couldn't have been more different got stitched together into a coherent superhero universe. How this company grew to become a solid #4 publisher during the speculator boom, and how it all came crashing down when the company was sold to Acclaim... yes the sub-par video game company.
Born in Tennessee, Jimmy Valiant started wrestling in 1964 as Big Jim Valen, which morphed into Handsome Jimmy Valiant when he wrestled for the World Wide Wrestling Federation in the 1970s. He soon formed a dominant tag team with his "brother," Johnny Valiant. One of the dominant wrestlers in Memphis, Valiant feuded with the likes of Jerry Lawler and even recorded a song, "The Ballad of Handsome Jimmy." In the 1980s, Valiant morphed once again into "Boogie Woogie Man" Jimmy Valiant. Today, Valiant runs Boogie's Wrestling Camp in Shawsville, Virginia.
Adam Milat-Meyer is an independent researcher who's been interested in human contact with aliens since he was a child growing up in Brooklyn during the 1970s and 80s.
One of the stories that always moved him was the story and legend surrounding Valiant Thor. Valiant Thor looks human, but he has some key physiological differences. He is from Venus. He worked for the U.S. government for some time in the 1950s before leaving in his spaceship. Thor had level-1 security clearance in secret government projects. He helped build underground military bases and worked at the famed Area 51 base.
But has he returned? Milat-Meyer suggests so. Valiant Thor is alive and well and you can find out about him and his crew by subscribing to the newsletter run by Julie Ann Stranges (Chair of NICUFO.org).

WWE Hall of Famer Handsome Jimmy Valiant, the Boogie Woogie Man himself, joins World Domination with Terry Garvin Simms. He talks about his start in the business, his run as WWWF Tag Team Champions with Luscious Johnny Valiant, his trips to Memphis and the Carolinas... and how a certain burger with a "sesame seed bun" led to a GIGANTIC misunderstanding with Jimmy Hart and Jerry Lawler.
And in the "what does that have to do with anything?" department, Bob and Terry take an early look at the Belmont Stakes, and discuss the possibilites of a Triple Crown winner.
Fan Film actor Vance Major returns to the program to share his experience at playing the chief engineer on the STARSHIP VALIANT. He will let us all know what it is really like acting in a top notch fan film, as well as the different projects he will be stepping into, and what anyone can do to be in the STAR TREK universe yourself.

Jimmy was first to enter the sports-entertainment world, debuting in 1964 after training with fellow Hall of Famer Verne Gagne. Johnny followed soon after in 1967, and together they won several regional tag team championships. The Valiants entered WWE in the early 1970s, and at times they seemed unbeatable. Together, the pair captured the World Tag Team Championship in 1974 and held them for just over a year. Later, a third brother, "Gentleman" Jerry, joined them, teaming with Johnny to once again win the World Tag Team Championship in 1979. The Valiants were just one of the dozen tag teams that fellow 1996 Hall of Fame inductee Captain Lou Albano guided to the World Tag Team Championship in his career.
Jimmy is also an accomplished author of his own Autobiography entitled, "WOO....MERCY DADDY! Welcome to my world the Jimmy Valiant story. We talk about his storied career in wrestling and what he is up to today
It's put up or shut up for Prof Big Daddy. For week's the big man has been shooting his mouth off about Jimmy Valiant. After catching wind of this, Pro Wrestling LEGEND, Handsome Jimmy Valiant contacted us so he could have a few words with Prof Big Daddy. - IWXshow.com
The murder of Malcolm X, the exile of Robert F. Williams, who was forced the flee to Cuba with the combined terrors of the FBI and the minions of Southern justice snapping at his heels, and the exile of the late W.E.G. Du Bois, who, in the sunset of a valiant life, made three symbolic gestures as a final legacy to his people (renouncing his American citizenship, ‘returning’ to Africa to become a citizen of Ghana, and cursing capitalism while extolling communism as the hope of the future) —these three events on the one hand, and on the other hand the award of a Nobel Prize to Martin Luther King and the inflation of the image to that of an international hero, bear witness to the historical fact that the only Negro American allowed to attain national or international fame have been the puppets and lakers of the white power structure—and entertainers and athletes….
It is against the back ground of the traditional role of the Negro entertainer and athlete in racial crisis and the rebellion against that tradition — that the Muhammad Ali— Floyd Patterson fight for the heavyweight championship must be viewed." Soul On Ice by Eldridge Cleaver
"Malcolm X knew that he needed a prominent ally to help him launch a new organization once his permanent suspension became public. It so happened that Cassius Clay, scheduled to fight Sonny Liston for the heavyweight championship of the world, was a good friend of Malcolm X, one of the few people Malcolm X ever invited to this house….." JUdas Factor Karl Evanzz
"The broad support for Muhammed Ali among negroes had nothing to do with the black Muslims’ racist ideology. Even the followers of the late beloved Malcolm X, many of whom despise Muhammad Ali for the scurvy remarks he made about the fallen Malcolm….." Soul On Ice
This weekend Valiant Comics, publisher of comics like Manowar, Shadowman and Bloodshot, annouced a 9 figure deal with Chinese Film company DMG to bring their properties to Big and Small screen in both America and Asia.
What does thaat mean? it means this is no longer a coke and pepsi game and the Superhero genre may get even more crowded if this deal sets a precedence for other Comic Book publishers in the independant realm.
we'll discuss this and talk about Super Girl's costume...because...well...what else is there really?
In the highly anticipated main event on Saturday night, WBA/IBO and WBC "Interim" World Champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (34-0, 31 KOs) added the IBF Middleweight Title to his collection with an exhilarating performance against former IBF Middleweight World Champion, David Lemieux (34-3, 31 KOs), culminating in an eighth round technical knockout victory on Saturday, October 17, at Madison Square Garden with a sold out crowd of 20, 548 fight fans.
Golovkin, showed his offensive and defensive prowess in the ring against the valiant Lemieux and dropped Lemieux in round five and ended the night with a battering display in the eighth round earning the stoppage at the 1:32 mark.
"I feel great, it was a great fight, I felt his power, but I was strong tonight, and my punches hurt him. He is a great champion, and I'm glad to beat him," said Golovkin. "I want all the belts; now I have two. The winner of Cotto-Canelo for sure will be next. I'm not sure who will win that fight, but I want to fight the winner next. I'm staying at 160 until I have all the belts."

One of our most favorite bands and guests are back! The hardest-working band on the metal scene, A Sound of Thunder is back to talk to us about their 5th album and most ambitious project to date! Based on the Shadowman series of comic books, the band's latest release, Tales From the Deadside, is a concept album like no other.
Award-winning comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment and Washington, DC area metal band A Sound of Thunder are teaming up for “Tales from the Deadside” – an all-new concept album inspired by New Orleans’ nocturnal guardian…the voodoo-empowered hero simply known as Shadowman!
The story of Shadowman, his alter-ego Jack Boniface, and the many characters in his world inspired us to create what we believe is our best album to date,” said A Sound of Thunder guitarist Josh Schwartz. “We let the story lead us to places our music has never been before, combining all the elements of supernatural horror, drama, action and adventure found in the comics. Of course, everything has gone through our own unique Thunderous filter, and all the familiar ASOT elements will be there. Shadowman’s harrowing journey demanded no less!
