Valiant Comics has announced, as part of the Year of Valiant initiative, the return of beloved comic book duo, Archer and Armstrong. The new series will be titled Archer & Armstrong: Forever and the first issue is set to release on May 4th, 2022.
As the two continue their adventures, Aram Anni-Padda (AKA Armstrong) loses his ability to heal from any wound and starts to believe that his days of immortality are coming to an end. Armstrong's companion, Obadiah Archer, conceives a plan to save his friend, and they set off on an adventure across the globe to find the mythical artifact that could bring back his immortality.
"The bond between Archer and Armstrong is, in my mind, one of the most compelling in all of comics," said Steve Foxe. "Action, adventure, comedy, super-gross body horror: there’s no genre Archer and Armstrong can’t steamroll. I can’t wait for returning readers to meet all of our new faces (some of them quite weird, to be honest) and for brand-new fans to discover why Archer and Armstrong are pillars of the Valiant Universe!"
Archer & Armstrong: Forever is written by Steve Foxe (X-Men '92: House of XCII), drawn by Marcio Fiorito (Eternals: The 500 Year War), with colors by Alex Guimaraes (Savage Avengers), and lettering by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou (The Blue Flame).
And, if interesting variant covers are your thing, then Valiant has one for you! Valiant will be offering a limited 1:250 burnt wood variant (Valiant says it is real burnt wood), so make sure to check with your local retailers.
