Unofficial Archive of DEFIANT Comics (14th Jul 16 at 11:26pm UTC)Quote Reply
The Unofficial Archive of DEFIANT Comics web site was rebooted this past year.

It is now up to version 3.1.32
http://defiant.x10.bz/

It is the third major version of the site.
It is the first incarnation of this third version.
It is my 32nd update to this first incarnation of the third version. {Tongue Out}


The updates are listed on the main page.
As of today, the notable updates have been:

Quote:
7/14/2016 - Added some scans of DEFIANT Card products (oversized card sheets, etc.). Upgraded some images for some DEFIANT related collectibles.

5/3/2016 - Added information for a "Collector Value Pack" which included Good Guys #1, Dark Dominion #3, and Warriors of Plasm #5. The pages for the individual issues has been update.

5/1/2016 - Revived the page for Solicited product as well as Cancelled products.

4/28/2016 - Updated some issues to indicate that signed versions exist and added scans of the Certificate of Authenticity. Those include Dark Dominion #1, Dogs of War #1, Dogs of War #2, DEFIANT Genesis (without comicfest banner) #1, Origin of the DEFIANT Universe #1, and Good Guys #1. These will not be listed on the Index page because certificates and signatures can be easily forged. Corrected some typo's on the One Shots Cover Gallery.

2/23/2016 - Updated the DEFIANT Comics checklist with links to images and galleries. The site has been plagued by upper/lower case discrepancies on the file names which have made some links invalid. The site has cleaned up some hyperlinks for the Warriors of Plasm title today.

1/25/2016 - Minor formatting corrections done on various pages.

1/24/2016 - The Charlemagne Cover Gallery has been updated. The War Dancer Cover Gallery has been updated. The Dark Dominion Cover Gallery has been updated.
1/23/2016 - The Dogs of War Cover Gallery has been updated.

1/17/2016 - Corrected links and made minor updates to the DEFIANT Cards page.

1/16/2016 - Updated the Warriors of Plasm Gallery Page. Corrected links and made minor updates to the DEFIANT Cards page.

1/14/2016 - The DEFIANT Editorials are now back online. Partially update the DEFIANT Cards page. Added a section of additional links on the main page. One link added was the DEFIANT A/V page. Some pages have been revived in the background, but they may have some broken image links.

1/10/2016 - The Reading Room is updated and all the links appear to be working. If you click on links to other pages from there, the links may go dead. Updates are still occurring in the background. The Good Guys Cover Gallery has been updated.


I put hyperlinks to the main pages I updated today. You can visit the main page to get more hyperlinks to past updates.
I also updated the Dark Dominion #0 Binder page.
I had more scans I could've posted, but I honestly don't know which are actual trading cards and which are oversized card sheets. :/

Starbrand says it works for him. It works for me on two different networks.

Copy the link and paste it in the field here:

http://kuvia.eu/

Do not use the Kuvia site to login to any pages. It is a proxy and they could steal any login information. Whether they do or not, I don't know... just don't give them the opportunity.

More than likely either software on your computer or your internet provider is the problem.

Cool...you added sections for the "Inside the Tower" vids....been awhile since I seen those. I still have the dvd somewhere hiding in a box I need to locate.

I've been wanting to hear the audio Plasm cassette tape again too. Smiley

btw, I found Charlemange #1 & Prudence #1 with the Defiant coa's as well...those exist.....i'll post pics when I get a chance. Wondering if more exist for WarDancer and GoodGuys 1s...

Smiley

Fatale 16 page X-Mas Special! What could have been! I didn't know that Dark Dominion crossover was going to be treated as an xmas special event.

Re: Birth Of Defiant Universe scans....how did you scan the interiors of that? I thought that would be hard to lay flat on a scanner with how the book opens. I kind of don't open mine all the way because of the vellum cover.

George Warner supplied the images for Birth Of Defiant Universe.
I would not have scanned mine. Don't know the background on how or where he got the scans.

The Plasm Tin audio is not working for me. I'm not sure if that's my upload or not.Image I don't remember having a metacafe account.

The Plasm audio is not working for me either. I'm watching the Inside the Tower vids again. Jim Shooter should grow that pony tail back again. Smiley

The intro makes me want to re-read Dark Dominion again. Ray Liotta would make for a good Chasm in a Dark Dominion movie.

No man needs a ponytail... ever.
No acting role needs Ray Liotta ever.

I know a friend who would rock the pony tail look from the late 90s well into the 2000s. Constantly combing his hair back with his fingers to rubberband it back with extra rubberbands in his mouth in case he needed more. He only did because he thought it would impress chicks. I think. Smiley

I don't think I'd want any of the chicks it would impress. In 1997, my friend's Puerto Rican wife cut my hair and gave me a mullet. I didn't care. She was hot and I figured if it looked good to her, it would look good to anyone else looking. 1997 was the last year they took my picture for my ID badge at work. My badge still has the mullet picture and it gets a lot of laughs. Business in the front, party in the rear. I'm a regular Billy ray Cyrus. LOL.

As mentioned in another thread, my hard drive storing my local files for my websites was corrupted. Upon initial review it appeared that 12 years of work was gone. I did locate most of my Defiant site in a renamed recovery folder. I've also downloaded a complete set of the files. So the current incarnation of my site is backed up as of today 9/1/2016.

My Treasury comics web site took a heavy beating. Essentially Windows lost the file paths on over 170 folders. I have to rename the folders one by one and try to piece back where they belong.

One side note. My Defiant Archive apparently consists of over 500 files So... if you add up the gifs, the jpgs, the pdf's, the html's, the png's, etc. it totaled over 500 files.

I knew I had that scan above, but I thought it was just an ad I'd seen before. I didn't realize that it was a magazine cover that I had not seen before. I had an opportunity to buy that color art, but I seem to recall that Jay Jay the colorist thought it had not been used anywhere.

The Unofficial Archive of DEFIANT Comics web site is now up to version 3.1.46
http://defiant.x10.bz/

Upgraded a scan of Rant #1 and added a scan of Rant #2 to the DEFIANT related publications page:
http://defiant.x10.bz/Other/Other.html

Added a web page for both so that I would not have a lot of text under the images explaining what they are.
http://defiant.x10.bz/Other/Rant/001_Rant_Defiant_Related.html
http://defiant.x10.bz/Other/Rant/002_Rant_Defiant_Related.html

Essentially, the art from Rant#1 was taken to a convention and shown to Jim Shooter. It was the art from this story that inspired Jim Shooter to hire artist J.G. Jones to work for DEFIANT comics. The comic was published after DEFIANT shut down and in the comic, publisher Hart Fisher included scathing insults towards Jim Shooter. Upon J.G. Jones finding out about the insults, he had a problem with it and in issue #2, Hart fisher apologizes. For fans of J.G. Jones, these are some rather obscure comics to find for their collection.

Rant #1

Rant #2

The cover of #1 on the DEFIANT Archive is cropped slightly better. The image uploaded to photobucket was not cropped before uploading.

My DEFIANT site has been updated a few versions, but the host is not showing it. The hosts says CPU limit exceeded. I find that hard to believe. Maybe Google or Amazon are hyperlinking to my large images and too much bandwidth is being used. I'm still not seeing it though on my tracking scripts so they could be bypassing my html pages and causing me problems. Maybe the down time will make them bump me from their searches. If not, I'll have to find a new host. i was going to have to move it anyways soon because I can't change the email address and the old one will no longer be working later in the year.

It's still tough to view the site on the browsers. I tried and get blank pages. Even mozilla.

The site has been down completely all week. I'm about to look for a new host and delete it. I have ftp access, but it comes up as cpu limit exceeded. I think the search engines have crawled the site too much. I don't think it will come back. They do this and seem to think I'd recommend their service to anyone.

So far, I like it better than the old host. It isn't a cluttered interface. The FTP access info was easy to locate. I was able to configure an email address through them with little effort. It has three options for webmail and it allows IMAP & POP3 connections. It allowed me to change my email address and the old one won't.

It looks like there are already problems with my larger files. That would mainly be pdf's. I may have to take longer articles and split them up into part 1, Part 2 etc.

The surfing through this site is faster than the other host. Relief!

The old one was just constant blank pages and slow loading for me.

It has been much faster, but I may have to sift through my files and look for alternate hosting of the large files.

I'm getting the impression that people like the pages more when they can see them and not so much when they can't.

I bumped the Rev. of the site up to Version 4.0.00.

I added a link on the main page to this page:

I increased the image sizes on the DEFIANT Tin sets and restructured that section accordingly. I'm not real pleased with the image quality, but it's better than the small images that I had before.

This page isn't officially part the site in that nothing directly links to it. It was part of the old site, so I do intend on making it relevant in the future. Either way, I updated it.

Updated the page above. Added some stuff to the following pages..

http://defiant.x10.bz/Creators/ACastrillo_Credits.html
http://defiant.x10.bz/Creators/GBoone_Credits.html
http://defiant.x10.bz/Creators/AHolcomb_Credits.html

This is tedious and time consuming. I may stop working on it.
