Random Promo-ish comics

I recently bought a longbox of mostly X-books, which proved to be a significant step toward shoring up gaps in my 1990s’ X-books runs. I also snagged some promo-type comics.

Pretty sure I have the Bravura issue somewhere, and I think I found the Deathmate and Comics’ Greatest World Advance Comics editions this summer, but skinny as these were, grabbed them while I was filling the longbox.

I do kinda miss this sort of thing; and while I get sick and tired of the 3-7 page “previews” of comics in the backs of current issues, I wouldn’t mind a skinny preview issue every week or couple weeks…at least then it’d feel like its own thing, and I could read it (or not) without being fooled at the length of the issue.

Whatever else there is to say about Wizard…I often enjoyed the #0 issues (and even the send-away #1/2 issues).

The Defiant issue caught my attention–I may have read an issue of Warriors of Plasm, but mostly Defiant‘s caught my attention this summer as I’ve learned more about 1990s Valiant; figured learning of the comic universe’s origin can’t do much harm.

I also kinda miss these Ashcan comics, though I grabbed these since I was filling a longbox and their space is negligible.

One of these days I’m going to have to read up on X. Other than the Will to Power weekly $1 mini the one summer, Xwas the main Comics’ Greatest World character I was actually interested in.
