If you suffer from Coulrophobia, you may want to skip this particular article… because Archer & Armstrong are going to Clowntown.
Valiant has sent us an early preview of the next story arc for A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong. Next Stop Clowntown starts in issue #6 and is by writer Rafer Roberts and artist Mike Norton.
They've got lions. They've got bears. Oh, and malformed mutant clones too! Oh my! Valiant's mismatched pair of conspiracy-smashing heroes thought they'd stumbled into an ordinary roadside funfair…but now Archer & Armstrong are about to become the star attractions of a midway where mad science and illicit experimentation rule the day!
Archer & Armstrong are on the hunt for Armstrong's long-lost wife, and the clues have put them on the trail of America's craziest traveling circus! But it's not just clowns, carnies, and strongmen lurking under the Big Top… When the world's premier adventure duo discover dozens of mutated Armstrong doppelgängers secretly running the show, all heck is bound to break loose! And it's only going to get worse when Davey the Mackerel returns with a shocking new set of secrets about Armstrong's bottomless satchel…and what else might be soon plotting its escape!
The new arc begins on August 10th and ships with covers by David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), Darick Robertson (The Boys), Pere Perez (Faith), Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm), and Diego Latorre (Dante's Inferno).
