Yesterday we learned that the new A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #1 will get a variant cover to go along with the new Archer & Armstrong American Pale Ale that is debuting at C2E2… but if you are not a fan of beer or can't make it to the party, there is another convention exclusive variant, this one done by Katie Cook (My Little Pony).
Valiant will be set up at booth #317 inside Chicago's McCormick Place and have signings scheduled for Cary Nord (X-O Manowar), Rafer Roberts (A&A), and David Baron (Bloodshot: Reborn). They will also have panels starting Friday, March 18th at 1:45 p.m. CT in Panel Room #S405b, with Valiant 101: New Fans Start Here – a concise and fun-filled introduction to Valiant's biggest, most memorable characters. Then on Saturday, March 19th at 12:30 p.m. CT in Room #S402 is the Valiant: A&A – The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong Spotlight. Writer Rafer Roberts is taking center stage to reveal the sordid life and times of Valiant's immortal roustabout adventurer and his infinitely naive marksman partner. And later on Saturday, March 19th at 2:45 p.m. CT in Panel Room #S405b, is Valiant: 4001 A.D. and Beyond! This summer…the future of Earth will be decided in the stars when Valiant presents the blockbuster crossover event of the year in 4001 A.D.! Now, get primed for the epic showdown between Rai and the forces of New Japan right here at C2E2 with an exclusive panel presentation from an all-star cast of Valiant staff and creators.
And of course there is the C2E2 2016: ARCHER & ARMSTRONG AMERICAN PALE ALE OFFICIAL RELEASE PARTY! Starting 8:00 p.m. CT at the Headquarters Beercade's River North location (213 W. Institute Pl., Chicago, IL 60610).
