Valiant Comics revival of Archer & Armstrong introduces the big man’s immortal sparring partner (and brother) the aptly named Eternal Warrior.
New York Times best selling author Freds Van Lente and artist Emanuela Lupacchino continue the tale of the unlikely duo in the story arch beginning in issue five – The Wrath of the Eternal Warrior.
No one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the Eternal Warrior. After thousands of years on the battlefield, he’s a master of strategy and weaponry, an unrelenting force of nature capable of dismantling entire armies with little effort and less conscience. His brother Armstrong, on the other hand, likes to read poetry and drink beer. Maybe that’s why they had such a bad falling out? But now — after years apart — the Eternal Warrior has a new mission: destroy young Obadiah Archer, Armstrong’s best-est new buddy and teammate in the war against The Sect. And, like it or not, Valiant’s history-smashing adventure duo will soon feel the brunt of the Eternal Warrior’s fist and steel.
The two immortals go to war as Archer & Armstrong #5 hits shelves on December 12th. And as a little bonus for comic shop pull-list pre-orders, Valiant has a special variant cover planned by artist Doug Braithwaite.
Get ’em while you can though, because the publisher won’t be printing any more of them. A ‘no overprint’ policy is in place now at Valiant, which basically means that pullbox exclusives will be pretty darned limited and won’t see a second printing- this book included.
