With A new Geomancer being created last issue, what are Archer and Armstrong to do with the Eternal Warrior and his newly acquired object to protect? Cause some all out destruction of course!

Fred Van Lente has a miraculous sense of adventure in his writing. Action packed, comedic and rife with historical relics as well as flashbacks, Archer & Armstrong is one of those books that has a universal appeal. It truly has something for everyone and makes the world of comics a fun and exciting place to be a part of again! The juxtaposition between the overtly serious characters, such as the Eternal Warrior, and the fun loving and clumsy yet clever Armstrong, bring a convivial level to this series that is rarely seen in books today. Fred Van Lente brings the fun back to the world of "funny books" without compromising the level of intelligence of the book or the reader. It is truly entertaining!

While on their quest to track the leaders of the One Percent and the Null, something occurs that readers will find exceptionally intriguing. Though I will not divulge what that something is - no spoilers here - readers of other Valiant books will have to make room for another title that may have more in common with them than at first perceived. The building blocks of the Valiant Universe continue to get bigger and bigger and the unity of their titles have gotten stronger with this issue.

So, if you are looking for something that will satisfy ever aspect of perfect writing, Archer & Armstrong is your one stop shop for it all! It is an extremely exciting to be a fan of Valiant comics, don't you think you could use some excitement, too?!
