YMMV / Valiant Comics

  • Adaptation Displacement: The most well known version of Turok, that is the N64 game, was based on the Acclaim era reboot of the title.
    • Similarly, Shadow Man is better known for the Acclaim-created videogame duology than for the original comic character. To the extent that the actual Shadow Man article is devoted solely to the videogame and only mentions the concept's origin as a comic character as an almost throw-away bottom line.
  • Cult Classic: Go to San Diego ComicCon and ask around about Valiant comics.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Fans of Valiant HATE Image Comics with a passion, partly because of Deathmate, partly because they feel cheated that Image is still around and Valiant (which they view the the far superior company) isn't, or at least wasn't until recently.
    • It should be noted that many of those that still despise Image seem to be unaware (or deliberately ignore) that the the Image that existed in the early 90s was a very different animal from the critically acclaimed, respected publisher of creator-owned horror, SF, fantasy, and noir crime comics that exists today. The few super-hero titles that remain are from the studios and creators that did not participate in the ill-fated Deathmate crossover. Ironically, some of them are big fans of The Walking Dead, Saga, and other fan-beloved series that are examples of what the modern Image is.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In the new version of X-O Manowar, Aric's invasion of Romania and the Russian response to it are kind of eerie now that there's a difficult situation unfolding in Crimea in the real world.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: One thing Accliam has shown us, is that it's a BAD IDEA to pull a full on Continuity Reboot after only 7 years.
