Defiant Comic Ads - Posted By Defiant1 (admin) on 9th Mar 18 at 11:59pm
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.

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 have one daunting task on it left. I will get off my duff soon and tackle it.

Re: Defiant Comic Ads - Posted By Defiant1 (admin) on 11th Aug 18 at 4:16pm
I can relate to that. Just wanted to make sure it hadn't fallen by the wayside.

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.

What web page are you talking about that no one visits?

Re: Defiant Comic Ads - Posted By Defiant1 (admin) on 6th Sep 18 at 5:31am

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.

Yet, still your pages live!

Re: Defiant Comic Ads - Posted By Star Brand (starbrand) on 12th Sep 18 at 4:23pm
I’ve got fond memories of this place.

Re: Defiant Comic Ads - Posted By Defiant1 (admin) on 12th Sep 18 at 5:09pm
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.
