Archer and Armstrong is fourth title in Valiant’s summer launch
Valiant Entertainment has announced a fourth title, Archer and Armstrong, to be released this summer.
The release states: The summer of Valiant is coming. Four titles. Four months. This August, B.C. meets A.D.D. in ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1!
“Archer & Armstrong” was an acclaimed title in the original Valiant Comics lineup, written and drawn by Barry Windsor-Smith.
Here’s what I wrote about the original series in a 2011 review:
The origin story of the offbeat buddy duo of Archer and Armstrong, originally featured in issues #0-6, was re-colored and put into a hardcover edition by the new Valiant Entertainment in 2009. Jim Shooter and Barry Windsor-Smith were the creators behind the characters: Armstrong, an immortal alcoholic with a heart of gold (we think), and Archer, the naive, conservative … well, archer … whose arch-conservative, but crazy, parents tried to kill him. Barry Windsor-Smith is the writer/artist who makes these characters come to life, with great characterization, beautiful art, and top-notch storytelling. Armstrong is on the run from a group called The Sect, who believe him to be the devil, and the pair get dragged into all sorts of adventures, including “Unity,” the early 1990s time-tossed Valiant crossover.
Archer and Armstrong joins X-O Manowar, Harbinger and Bloodshot as the launch titles from the new Valiant Comics.
