Ugh! I have to choose between this and Zod as I'm getting too many things already..... I'm going for Zod.

I get most of these books and my choice would be Superior Spider-Man, Superior Team-Up, Scarlet Spider and then Superior Foes. I don't buy Venom, Carnage or Ultimate so don't know about their quality.
I guess the real voting is done by sales and Superior Spider-Man gets both issues a month in the top 10 sales every month whilst none of the others have been in the top 10 selling books yet.
The crossover with barely any crossing over. There's the unity miniseries and XO and that's it. That can be a good thing, but it seemed like a bigger deal.
Unity is an ongoing series.
I think it was necessary. I liked the first Shadowman story arc but after Patrick Zircher left the book took a nosedive.
I've bought and read every single issue Valiant has released since the relaunch. It's awesome to be part of the rapidly growing Valiant Universe from the beginning but since they have A WHOLE PAGE OF RECAP IN EVERY ISSUE there's no reason why ppl can't jump in anywhere. I voted for X-O as it's my favourite book right now (along with Superior Spider-Man) but if I had to rank them:
- X-O Manowar - sci-fi & action EPIC with a main character who can be a villain just as easily as being a hero (check out the current story arc).
- Bloodshot - like an 80's bloody action movie with tons of brutality and witty dialogue. The main character is a mystery even to himself and his journey to discover who he was makes this an even more interesting read.
- Archer & Armstrong - HILARIOUS! Full of conspiracy theories, Nunja's (Ninja Nuns!), exotic locations and a real buddy adventure
- Harbinger - like a more realistic X-Men... as in what if the teens with powers were less noble and just more real?
- Shadowman - I'm not usually into magic and occult stories but Shaodwman's full of great characters and good action scenes. Features an interesting main character and Jaunty - a talking ghost monkey with a top hat - who steals the show.
- Quantum & Woody - Funny, juvenile (that's a good thing) but too soon to tell.
Can't wait for Eternal Warrior and Unity.
