Valiant is proud to present your first look inside A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant's next flagship series from red-hot rising star Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm, Carpool Buddies of Doom) and Valiant-exclusive superstar David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)! "IN THE BAG" starts here on March 16th as Archer descends into the infinite depths of his partner's bottomless satchel to rescue Armstrong from an age-old enemy…and battles his way through an upside-down world of arcane architecture, lost treasures, and strange creatures bent on making our world their own!

Meet Armstrong: Since the ancient city of Ur, this immortal adventurer has spent the last 7,000 years drinking and carousing his way through history alongside some of the greatest merrymakers the world has ever known.

Meet Archer: A sheltered teenage martial arts master and expert marksman who was raised for a single purpose – to kill the devil incarnate. Little did he know that this undying evil was actually Armstrong (he’s actually a pretty good guy…once you get to know him) and, since hitting the road together, these two have become great friends and even better partners.

Now: Archer is about to set off on his most dangerous mission yet – a quest into the mystic reaches of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel to liberate his friend and comrade from the clutches of the mad god Bacchus! (Okay, so, Armstrong went into the satchel himself to get a bottle of whiskey that he kinda misplaced and got stuck. It’s like the Amazon warehouse of arcane treasures in there…and he doesn’t exactly have a maid service.)

Imprisoned in Armstrong’s satchel for centuries, Bacchus now commands a legion of monsters, goblins and golems bent on escaping back into the world of man and enacting revenge on their captor… Can Archer single-handedly combat the godly embodiment of intoxication himself – and rescue his best buddy – without becoming lost amongst Armstrong’s endless repository of bizarre artifacts and historical oddities in the process?

Take two aspirin and call us in the morning…because Archer & Armstrong’s all-new adventure is about to give the rest of the Valiant Universe a splitting hangover headache! It all starts here on March 16th when "IN THE BAG" kicks off with a bang in A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 – featuring covers by David Lafuente, Kano (QUANTUM AND WOODY), Trevor Hairsine (DIVINITY), Clayton Henry (HARBINGER WARS), Rafer Roberts (Carpool Buddies of Doom), and Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis)!

Last volume was pretty great. Roberts & Lafuente have some big shoes to fill. Look forward to checking this out though.

The artwork is acceptable and fits the genre in my opinion. I want to see a colored and lettered preview right now...

I'm can't wait for this and definitely getting it but the art kinda looks like Archie Comics (although that's not necessarily a bad thing). In the last few panels Archer looks like Dewie from Malcolm in the Middle.

Archer & Armstrong was my favorite Valiant comic back in the day. I am very interested to see what this update brings.

Can't wait to see Rafer's take on the most dynamic duo in comics. A&A is going to be yet another amazing title from Valiant!
