I hadn't read much of anything on that list.

Quantum and Woody. Because I loved their old series, and since the reboot Valiant hasn't put anything out that hasn't been decisively brilliant.

#7 Posted by Dark_Guyver (2307 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman/Superman.

Thanos Rising is practically character assassination, if you ask me. I was enthusiastic about Jupiter's Legacy but it seems to draw heavily upon the stale, overdone old-ways-vs-new-ways Kingdom Come-esque conflict. Avengers AI --- I love those kinds of characters, but after the steaming pile that was Age of Ultron, I really don't trust Marvel to do it right. Haven't read half of these, though. Superman Unchained ----- it's like Jupiter's Legacy in terms of the problem I have with it. I liked the first issue, but it follows a predictable theme courtesy of its writer and his fascination with "untold secrets of the past returning to haunt the present!".

Astro City or Batman/Superman for me.

100 Bullets and Astro City are new? Both have been made by the same creative teams since the 90's.

Considering Valiant's current trend of making top notch comics Quantum and Woody is the obvious choice.

They rebooted the series. Astro City 1 came out recently (not sure on the date).

I voted Superman Unchained but it was kind of a toss-up between it and Batman/Superman. I chose Bats/Supes at first but I switched to Superman Unchained at the last minute. They're too awesome to really choose between. I wish you could choose more than one.

Gotta say Brian Wood's new volume of X-Men. Love the roster, love the dialogue, love the art. Close seconds are Batman/Superman, East of West, and The Wake.

GMan is reviewing it, but I got to read it, and Quantum and Woody's first issue is awesome.

I want to say Avengers A.I but probably Superman Unchained or Batman/Superman

Harbinger Wars isn't exactly new its got 5-6 issues. Quantum and Woody hasn't been released yet I think. So its much newer lol!

X-Men. The X-Men I fell in love with 10 years ago is back.

Kick-Ass is new? X-Men is new? Batman/Superman is new? Quantum and Woody is new? Same creative teams or not, we're going by volumes and THEY BE NEW. But I guess the key difference is you just don't care about those titles :P

If you include tie-ins, yes, but I'm not and because of that it's technically only 3 issues in :P

I know ether a Batman or Superman book is going to win because ya know, comics, but if people are really honest with them selves then theyd know the books that have the most potential are the indy books where they have 100% creative freedom

#26 Posted by Cap10nate (2210 posts) - - Show Bio

Harbinger Wars for me. It's only a 4 issue crossover but the first three issues have been fantastic. Anything Valiant has put out recently has been great.

I'm really looking forward to Eternal Warrior #1 this fall and his appearance in X-O Manowar tomorrow.

#27 Posted by Lvenger (19116 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman Unchained for me. Batman/Superman had its share of confusing flaws in the second half of the issue that dragged down the story for me. Snyder delivered on a top notch entertaining issue that gave us strong understandings of Superman's supporting cast, an intriguing well balanced plot and a spot on portrayal of Superman himself.

#28 Posted by yo_yo_fun (643 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman Unchained gets my vote. I loved the 1st issue!

i went east of west i so close to picking astro city .

#33 Posted by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub (5008 posts) - - Show Bio

East of West, Ten Grand and The Wake are the best books on that list.

While I'm more excited for Batman/Superman, I lime the idea of '66 Batman

Really only? Thought there was at least 4 not including tie-ins O.O. Meuh I'll still stick with Quantum and Woody!

#36 Posted by ccraft (5168 posts) - - Show Bio

I enjoyed Batman/Superman more than Superman Unchained, I personally think Bat/Supes #2 will also be better that SU #2.

To me $5 is too much to add to my pull list, I'll add it to my collect later list.

They didn't reboot either. 100 Bullets: Lono is a spin-off and this is the eight volume of Astro City.

Well Kick-Ass isn't new either :p There's just something weird to compare titles that the same creative team has been doing a long time against series with new ones.

Batman/Superman

#45 Posted by The Mighty Monarch (2227 posts) - - Show Bio

Superman Unchained is a bit TOO obvious a choice, it just wasn't quite living up to the hype YET. Batman/Superman was pretty disappointing.

I'm going to go off the beaten path a bit and say The Superior Foes of Spider-Man. It seems gimmicky from a glance, unlike most of the titles here that look promising at a glance (plenty of which are) but Nick Spencer has yet to do anything but blow me away, and there's a very nice unique balance to the tone so far.

I voted for Black Bat. If anyone isn't reading it, you should give it a try.

Totally east of west. The only reason Unchained is winning is because people are scared of venturing outside of the Big 2. READ THIS PPL, its an unbelievable story. Its my most anticipated book on a monthly basis.

@ccraft: Only issue 1 had that price point because of the fold out poster
