Probably the comic I have read the most times. I bought the original Valkyrie run in FB on Dawson street in two separate chunks.
I bought it on the back of his art on Nemesis and I wasn't disappointed, blown away by the art, and the story, I only had a vague sense of it, but I could feel the scale of it and it was something that was worth another go.
I reread it over the following years and there is something extra that I noticed new on every reading.
Its quiet a few years since I last read it, I think its due another.
I'd heartily recommend it, it's easily one of my favourite comics. If anyone is wavering ,go for it, plunge straight in, even its convoluted and erratic publishing history is interesting, never mind the fact that Mr. Talbot must have lived on beans while he wrote and drew this, which IMO is one of the finest comics ever to be published in Britain.
Heart of Empire however suffers from my (thankfully gone-ish) complete-ism problem, I have all the issues bar one and this was before I discovered the joy of collections, so I cant read it. Might be time to get that collection!
