A First Look at Valiant’s “Archer & Armstrong”

David Vandervliet 05/11/2012 Reviews

The Summer of Valiant keeps on coming, and it’s going to get hot!

X-O Manowar #1 is a certified hit, and every indication seems to say the Harbinger and Bloodshot are going to be just as huge, and now we are getting our first look at the art for the fourth title coming out this August, Archer & Armstrong.

The cover artist, Mico Sauyan also provided the “Pullbox Exclusive” cover for Harbinger #1Archer & Armstrong Virgin Cover #1.

Archer & Armstrong make for an unlikely team,  what with Armstrong being a immortal who has withdrawn from the world, except when he needs a drink (which is often) and Archer, an 18 year old “raised to be the perfect assassian”.   In fact they only meet because Archer has been sent to kill Armstrong.

Can these two survive each other?  Let alone the ones who originally sent Archer on his mission to kill and unkillable man?

From Valiant:

VALIANT Debuts

ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 Cover

 

Valiant is proud to present Mico Suayan‘s skull-smashing cover for Archer & Armstrong #1 – the Summer of Valiant’s next sensational series from the New York Times best-selling creative team of Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and Clayton Henry (Incredible Hercules)!

 

Obadiah Archer was raised to uphold three things above all else: the values of his parents, the love of his 22 brothers and sisters, and his lifelong mission to defeat the ultimate evildoer. Now, after years of training, Archer has been dispatched to the heart of America’s debauched modern day Babylon, aka New York City, to root out and kill this infamous Great Satan. Unfortunately, dying has never been easy for Archer’s target – the hard-drinking immortal known as Armstrong! Together, this unlikely pair of heroes is about to stumble headfirst into a centuries-old conspiracy that could bring the whole of ancient history crashing down on modern civilization.

 

It began with X-O Manowar, Harbinger and Bloodshot – could it all end here? Find out on August 8th when two mortal enemies come together to make an epic first impression on the Valiant Universe, only in Archer & Armstrong #1!
