[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
Valiant’s award-winning heroes are getting reunited…and it doesn’t feel so good!
Valiant is proud to present your first look inside A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #2 – the next head-shaking chapter of 2016’s newest blockbuster series from red-hot writer Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm, Shutter) and superstar artist David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)! On April 13th, “IN THE BAG” continues here as Valiant’s greatest mis-adventurers do the unthinkable and hit rock bottom…inside Armstrong’s bottomless satchel! Imprisoned by Bacchus, the self-appointed god of inebriation, Archer and Armstrong’s only shot at salvation (and sobriety) rests in Mary-Maria! But will Archer’s step-sister/oldest flame (ew) rescue the dynamic-ish duo…or turn Armstrong’s satchel and its infinite treasures over to the Sisters of Perpetual Darkness?
