All four Summer of Valiant titles have now been made public, along with the creative teams; and to my surprise, and I imagine that of many, the fourth title is Archer and Armstrong, not Shadowman or Eternal Warrior.
VALIANT Launches Four New Series for Summer 2012
Valiant is proud to announce four new series for the summer of 2012 -- X-O Manowar, Harbinger, Bloodshot, and Archer & Armstrong -- featuring brand new beginnings for some of comics' most iconic characters! Kicking off with X-O Manowar in May and Harbinger in June, the Summer of Valiant continues this July in Bloodshot #1, from acclaimed writer Duane Swierczynski (Immortal Iron Fist, Birds of Prey) and artists Manuel Garcia (Checkmate, Spider Man: Breakout) & Arturo Lozzi (Immortal Weapons)! Then, in August, the Valiant Universe's greatest duo begins an all-new epic journey in Archer & Armstrong #1 by the New York Times bestselling creative team of Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man, Hulk: Season One) and Clayton Henry (Avengers Academy)! Four months. Four titles. Infinite possibilities. The Summer of Valiant is coming!
