    I know we have already done this, but...

    1) Harbinger

    2) Bloodshot (you can keep your Hard Corps, thank you very much)

    3) Archer and Armstrong

    4) XO

    5) Shadowman

    6) Quantum and Woody

    I can't comment on the new EW, since I haven't read it yet. I will, though.

    Archer & Armstrong is my hands-down favorite. XO, Bloodshot, and Harbinger, are all tied for second. I like Shadowman, but the art has been too inconsistent. Quantum & Woody hasn't won me over yet, but I don't hate it either. I enjoyed Eternal Warrior #1, but it's too soon to rank it.
    Be a fan of the creators, not the characters.

    Good to see Shadowman at the bottom. That title needs to be revamped really bad. Disappointment.

    Tough to do...

    1) Archer & Armstrong: Has been on a tear lately. Last arc was great.
    2) Harbinger: Strong since issue #1.
    3) Bloodshot: I was really liking this book before the change overall, but I don't mind the change either. Issue #0 was excellent - one of the best zero issues I've read.
    4) X-O Manowar: Planet Death was a bit underwhelming for me, but I like where it's gone since.
    5) Shadowman: The current issue and issue #0 were excellent. The other stuff has been inconsistent, although I felt it got stronger as the run went on.

    Too early to call on Eternal Warrior or Quantum and Woody.

    I'm enjoying all the books especially X-O Manowar. Archer and Armstrong is my least favorite; I find many of the story elements in the series to be stupid.

    Something I want to mention is I admire how Valiant keeps a believable shared universe. None of the shared universe references and crossovers feels forced.

    1- Harbinger
    1a - X-O Manowar
    3 - Bloodshot
    4 - Archer and Armstrong
    5 - Shadowman

    I have only read the 1st two issues of Q&W and the opening issue of EW so it's too early for me to rate them. I am enjoying them both though and expect them to make it towards the top of my list.

    It is. Peter Milligan is the new writer with #13.


    I do however, think that Shadowman #0 is one of the best issues Valiant have put out since the relaunch.

    I think VALIANT knows that the SHADOWMAN title is need of creative help. I don't think it's sales really show that as yet though. So with whatever is planned with Milligan and Co. at #13 I'm hoping we see things go in the direction the character needs to go.

    1-XO
    2-BS&HC / A&A yes tied
    3-Harbinger
    4-Shadowman - issues like #0 & #10 alone keep it this high
    5-Q&W - the first arc isn't over but it's better than I'd hoped
    6-Eternal Warrior - only cause 1 issue isn't enough to really say

    I do agree shadowman has had too of may favorite issues but over he created a lame universe for shadowman feels disconnected from rest of valiant needs to be more grounded in real world he had the best shot to get deep in post Katrina new Orleans and do something gritty dark horror but he lost it

    For me my list looks like this:

    1) Harbinger (hands down)

    2) Archer & Armstrong

    3) X-O Manowar

    4) Bloodshot & Shadowman (both books have been a bit underwhelming - Bloodshot was slightly better overall, but Shadowman had more really good & bad issues)

    5) Quantum & Woody (dropped it after issue #1, and it was rather difficult to even get through).

    Eternal Warrior & Bloodshot Hardcorps (I haven't read these 2 yet, so I can't comment - I'm really hoping the new take on Bloodshot improves it).

    1 Harbinger
    2 XO Manowar
    3 A&A
    4 Shadowman

    EW is too new, but I have a feeling will climb up the ladder pretty fast; looking forward to Unity.

    I haven't read all of Valliants titles. Only ones I checked were Shadowman, Archer and Armstrong, Quantom and Woody and X-0. I dropped them all after 2 issues except X-0.
