“Since issue #1, Archer & Armstrong has been nothing short of a blast to work on, and we’ve been blessed with an incredibly gifted cast of creators along the way – Fred and Clayton, Pere Perez, Khari Evans, Emanuela Lupacchino, and David Baron, just to name a few,” said Archer & Armstrong editor Josh Johns. “Now, with issue #25 coming up, we here at Valiant wanted to build the biggest, most jam-packed milestone issue possible for the fans who have made this series a success…and finally check in on some of the long-asked questions that we planted in previous arcs. This is going to be a big one!”
The official Archer & Armstrong drinking game! The never-before-told story of Armstrong’s first drink! A very special Timewalker adventure! And more! It all happens here as Valiant’s conspiracy-busting, history-smashing swashbucklers saunter into the big two-five!
For ten thousand years, the immortal currently called Armstrong has been sleeping and boozing his way across Earth, keeping one step ahead of a secret cult – known simply as the Sect – obsessed with killing him. That all changed, however, when an 18-year-old Sect assassin named Obadiah Archer turned on his masters, and joined Armstrong for a globetrotting quest to bring down the Sect’s unholy coalition of conspiracies around the world. Nazi Buddhists! Probe-happy aliens! Dead celebs! The One Percent! And even an Eternal Warrior. But Archer & Armstrong’s fight is only just beginning – and they’ll face a dire series of daft and dangerous new perils when ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #25 strikes in October!
Featuring five fabulous covers from Archer & Armstrong legends past and present – including Clayton Henry, Shawn Crystal, Pere Perez, Jim Calafiore, and Michael Walsh – start reading here as one-half of the mischievous DELINQUENTS kick the tires on the year’s merriest anniversary milestone!
If you haven’t delved into the world that Valiant has created in A&A, you’ve flat out been missing out on one of the most purely fun books on the shelves. These two have gotten into just about every major conspiracy you could think of and then some, and done it all with a terrific sense of humor that honestly very few comics bother with in the current industry. Simply put, it’s great; try it.
Archer & Armstrong #25, with all the bells and whistles in tow, arrives on the racks this coming October.
