Harbinger and X-O Manowar are hits, and Bloodshot is looking to be every bit as good when it comes out this July. Now Valiant is giving us a look at their final book coming out this summer, Archer & Armstrong, from the New York Times best-selling creative team of Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and Clayton Henry (Incredible Hercules).
In stores on August 8, (with an exclusive alternative alternative cover by comics legend Neal Adams) get ready to meet the two best fighters the world has ever seen. One, Armstrong, is an immortal who just wants to be left alone and the other, Archer, barely 18, was raised to be the world’s best assassin. See what brings them together against the forces that train Archer, and have been working behind the scenes for over 5000 years, but to what end? To control the world, or something more?
Here’s the official press release from Valiant.
VALIANT Presents ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1: LETTERED PREVIEW
After years of meditation and training, 18-year-old Obadiah Archer has been dispatched to New York City to carry out the sacred mission of his family’s sect – kill the booze-addled immortal known only as Armstrong and convene a new world order! But as this underage assassin stalks his prey, he’ll soon find that both hunter and hunted are just pawns in a global conspiracy stretching back five millennia – and that Archer & Armstrong will have to work together if the future is to stand any chance of surviving the past’s greatest threat!
Who are the puppet masters pulling the strings of history? How is a centuries-old civilization tied to the very fate of the Valiant Universe? Can we get fries with that? Find out the answers to these questions and more when Archer & Armstrong #1 storms into stores everywhere on August 8th with four frenetic covers by superstar artists Mico Suayan, Clayton Henry, David Aja and Neal Adams!
