    How would that work for X-O? Issue 5 was the start of a new story arc. Though I guess it makes it a hook to get the next trade...

    Valiant has the best books on the market. Top storytelling and beautiful art.
    Great price on the TPBs! Valiant has been pleasing the existing fan base plus making it attractive to new readers.

    $10 is such a perfect price point for a first trade, most people have no problem dropping ten bucks to try something out. Never having read Valiant, I checked out a couple of first issues and decided to trade wait, now I think I'll grab all four series.

    I liked it when Vertigo did it (and it got me reading number of series) and it's a smart move by Valiant.

    Although 5 issues seems a little light to me, at least at $10 it still seems a decent value.

    Sad that this is "news" as opposed to the industry standard.

    Me too. Are the series any good? What do I need to know/read before getting into them?
