The Return Of Archer And Armstrong In August

There are four books for the "Summer of Valiant". We knew the first three were X-O Manowar, Harbinger and Bloodshot... but the fourth remained a mystery. Valiant seemed to tease that it was Shadowman but instead…

The fourth book is Archer & Armstrong.

Created by Barry Windsor Smith and Jim Shooter, Barry writing and drawing the book solo was a real creative treat every month, and still stands as one of the better odd couple books to date. The deadly serious martial artist Archer with vengeance on his mind and the thousand year living Bacchalian Armstrong with large carafes of wine on his mind forced together. It was brilliant – at least when Barry was in charge.

Here's hoping for a repeat performance.
