Valiant’s Archer & Armstrong Return In May 2022

by Brendan M. Allen

Archer & Armstrong Forever #1 marks the eagerly anticipated return of Valiant Entertainment’s fan-favorite and adventurous duo. When the carefree, hard-drinking, and immortal Aram Anni-Padda, a.k.a. Armstrong, seemingly loses his ability to heal from any wound and believes his days as an immortal are finally coming to an end, his young and optimistic best friend Obadiah Archer will travel the world in search of mythical artifacts to save his dear friend.

A buddy comedy adventure with a lot of heart, the new series Archer & Armstrong Forever is written by Steve Foxe, illustrated by Marcio Fiorito, colored by Alex Guimarães, and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. The first issue will have a limited 1:250 Burnt Wood Variant Cover, and yes, it really is made from burnt wood.

“The bond between Archer and Armstrong is, in my mind, one of the most compelling in all of comics,” said Steve. “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 is the latest series to spin out of The Year of Valiant, the year-long campaign focused on putting fans first with each and every comic. The supernatural Deadside War storyline is unfolding in the pages of Shadowman, Faith makes her triumphant return to The Harbinger later this month (2/23), and the new sci-fi series Armorclads will launch in March. More news about The Year of Valiant’s comic releases will be revealed very soon.

Archer & Armstrong #1 goes on sale May 4th and is now available for pre-order at your local comic shop.
