Sneak Preview: ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1

Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Archer & Armstrong #1, from the New York Times best-selling creative team of Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and Clayton Henry (Incredible Hercules)! It’s history in the breaking on August 8th when the Valiant Universe’s two most formidable fighters set out on a conspiracy-smashing quest for the truth!

After years of meditation and training, 18-year-old Obadiah Archer has been dispatched to New York City to carry out the sacred mission of his family’s sect – kill the booze-addled immortal known only as Armstrong and convene a new world order! But as this underage assassin stalks his prey, he’ll soon find that both hunter and hunted are just pawns in a global conspiracy stretching back five millennia – and that Archer & Armstrong will have to work together if the future is to stand any chance of surviving the past’s greatest threat!

Who are the puppet masters pulling the strings of history? How is a centuries-old civilization tied to the very fate of the Valiant Universe? Can we get fries with that? Find out the answers to these questions and more when Archer & Armstrong #1 storms into stores everywhere on August 8th with four frenetic covers by superstar artists Mico Suayan, Clayton Henry, David Aja and Neal Adams!

Variant Cover by ARTURO LOZZI

Heroes aren’t born. They’re built.

You have no name, just a project designation. They call you Bloodshot, but the voices inside your head call you “daddy, “sir,” “commander,” “comrade” – whatever it takes to motivate you to get the job done. But after so many missions and so many lives, you’re finally ready to confront your handlers at Project Rising Spirit and find out who you really are. You’d better move quickly though, because your former masters don’t like it when a billion-dollar weapons project decides to go rogue. Can you discover the truth before their next deadly mind wipe takes you off the board for good? Let’s hope so…because everyone inside you is counting on it.

VALIANT Revolts With HARBINGER #1 QR VOICE VARIANT

Valiant is proud to debut the Harbinger #1 QR Voice Variant – the next in Valiant’s line of groundbreaking, QR code-augmented variant covers hitting stores this Wednesday! Illustrated by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic, scripted by Joshua Dysart and animated by Neal Adams’s Continuity Studios, the Harbinger #1 QR Voice Variant is the Valiant Universe’s first introduction to Toyo Harada – the figurehead of the Harbinger Foundation and would-be mentor to the one psionic with the power to oppose him, Peter Stanchek.

Written by New York Times bestselling author Joshua Dysart with art by Harvey Award nominee Khari Evans, Harbinger #1 finds Pete out of work, on the skids, and coming to grips with the fact that he may be a psionic-powered “harbinger” with the potential to reshape the course of human history. Harada is a wealthy business magnate, a respected philanthropist and the most powerful harbinger of all – or so he thought. As they forge an uneasy alliance, will Harada offer Pete a chance for redemption – or attempt to induct him into a secret network of conspiracy, subversion and control? Pete is about to discover that he’s not alone in the world and, soon, the generation who has nothing will take on the man who has everything.

In addition to the QR Voice Variant, Harbinger #1 also boasts three other stunning covers – the standard edition by rising star Arturo Lozzi, the Pullbox Exclusive Variant for comic shop subscribers by Mico Suayan, and an incentive variant by Doug Braithwaite.

Today, the next epic installment of the Summer of Valiant begins when Pete and Harada usher in a whole new generation of hero, only in Harbinger #1!
