Exclusive Nine-Page DELINQUENTS #1 Preview

The crossover you need to read--Quantum and Woody/Archer & Armstrong team-up.

We've seen many crossovers and team-ups in the past but it's safe to say, you probably haven't seen any quite like this. Back in May we got our first look at the epic crossover from Valiant featuring Quantum and Woody along with Archer & Armstrong.

The four-issue miniseries is written by James Asmus and Fred Van Lente. The art is by Kano. The story also features an ass map. How many other crossovers can claim that? Check out our exclusive nine-page preview. Oh, and take a look at the credits sequence!

Quantum and Woody are the world’s worst superhero team. Archer & Armstrong are a mismatched pair of conspiracy-busting adventurers. When a mysterious force unites these ill-suited and irresponsible “heroes” for a cross-country race through the darkest corners of American mythology, all hell is bound to break loose. Can two busted pairs become four of a kind in time to defeat the Hobo King, save the day, and make it back home in time for happy hour? Let’s hope so…’cause these guys make a really, really bad team. (And you don’t even want to know about the Goat!)

The race begins on August 20th, only in THE DELINQUENTS #1 (of 4) – featuring a standard cover by Eisner Award-winner Paolo Rivera, plus a #ValiantCraft shelf cover by Valiant 8-Bit superstar Donovan Santiago!

I love the social consciousness that Asmus has brought to the humor in Quantum and Woody, and now to the Delinquents. I think Priest is probably pretty proud of what Asmus has created with his creations. But more than anything, it is funny. Props to Van Lente as well, as his work is often sports those two qualities as well. The previous previews felt a bit flat, but in the context of sequential order, the jokes work a lot better. Can't wait for this.
