Here is a solicitation from the February 4, 1994 issue of CBG and it is offering Defiant back issues for sale. It is from a March 1994 Kingpen Comics insert in CBG# 1055.

That's neat. I wonder if they had that conversation.

This CBG ad from CBG# 1061 is a common inclusion. The price was only $23 per issue. Very affordable.

This ad was also published in CBG# 1057.
I see no need to re-scan it.

Here is a Plasm ad in CBG# 1024.

This was also published in CBG#1027 (page 95).

It's a little interesting that Defiant thought Glory would be a popular character. I'll concede that a grandmother turned superhero is a new twist, but I'm not mentally picturing a huge popularity behind the character itself.
I'm thinking Glory should have been allowed to grow as a character in the stories first, and maybe they should have held off on promoting her in ads. I say that based upon the primary demographics of the consumer buying the products.

I can relate to that. Just wanted to make sure it hadn't fallen by the wayside.

I found this Defiant page ad inside the San Diego Comicon 1994 Program:

The Events Guide also has some mentions of the panels and giveaways....just a couple months before Defiant folded:

Cool stuff. I have more CBG's to scan, but I want to finish scanning my girlfriends art first. Nobody seems to care about DEFIANT anymore. Almost no traffic is visiting the web page.

I am getting little to no traffic on the board here as well as any web pages I've created. That includes the DEFIANT comics web site. I'm getting more spam traffic than I am actual visitors. The EC web pages are getting a little more activity than anything else.

It's not just here. There are a lot of messageboards that are dwindling.
How is your Facebook group going. I won't join Facebook groups, but I'm willing to read them if you open it up to non-members for viewing. I might comment here. I read the EC Facebook group all the time.
