We've made it no secret we're huge fans of Valiant's reboot here at Comic Vine. They've done a brilliant job resurrecting various characters and have done an even better job making their return totally accessible to both new and old fans. Each title is bringing a completely different atmosphere to the table as well. Be it mystical horror or offbeat and raunchy comedy, there's absolutely something for everyone. We each have our favorites, but this week, we wanted to see which series you're all digging the most and why. The dust has settled after two days of debate and voting and Aric was able to soar above the competition. The Renegades almost caught up to him, though.
X-O MANOWAR was my vote as well and, if I had to elaborate, I'd say it was due to three things: sci-fi, action and paff. Each book is doing a consistently great job, but X-O MANOWAR is just a massively fun adventure which has yet to slow down. As if things couldn't get any better, the next issue has Aric facing off against Eternal Warrior -- you know, that other badass who is also getting his own title (by Greg Pak/Trevor Hairsine). We told X-O MANOWAR's writer, Robert Venditti, his title took the number one spot and here's what he had to say.
"Valiant publishes some of the best comics on the stands today, so for X-O Manowar to be picked as the Comic Vine fan favorite is no small honor. As General Redacted, my favorite character from Archer & Armstrong would say, "[REDACTED] yeah!"
And in case you were wondering, here are the poll results.
- X-O Manowar 26%
- Harbinger 24%
- Quantum and Woody 16%
- Archer & Armstrong 12%
- Bloodshot 12%
- Shadowman 10%
