Only the Valiant podcast

I haven't read Valiant or Defiant, but I like a lot of stuff Image puts out these days. Granted, they've become a publisher of creator owned properties more than long running books in the "Image" universe, which makes 'em more like Dark Horse than Marvel or DC these days.
It's too bad Wildstorm has more or less imploded as there was some interesting stuff coming out of there, too.
