“Archer and Armstrong” at CBR
Brian Cronin at Comics Should Be Good at Comic Book Resources started a new “Comic Alphabet of Cool,” this time focusing on the Valiant Universe. Really, that’s something dorky enough that I should have come up with it. (Don’t get me started on being jealous of Cronin’s also currently running “100 Greatest Comic Book Runs of all time” which I have some ideas on how to steal for this blog.)
Cronin kicks off the alphabet with “Archer and Armstrong,” a Valiant title that, when it was written and drawn by Barry Windsor-Smith, was one of my favorites.
The basic concept of the book is simple to anyone who’s read Chuck Dixon’s Green Arrow – a devoted young martial artist travels the world with a brutish world-weary lout.
In this case, Archer was a young man who was perhaps the world’s greatest martial artist. He had been left for dead by his own parents, who turned out to be majorly evil, so he devoted himself to ridding the world of evil. During his quest to do so, he was suckered into working for a group that was designed to kill off an evil demon, who turned out to be Armstrong.
