Valiant Solicitations for July 2013

The end of Harbinger Wars and the start of Quantum & Woody. All this and more from Valiant.


Source: Press Release

Our friends at Valiant have some fun still cooking up for this summer.  In July, we finally come to the end of Harbinger Wars, the first major crossover for The Flyin' V. We've been talking about it for so long, it's odd to think of it as coming to an end. But there are also new beginnings for Valiant. The new Quantum & Woody makes its debut this month. While we're at it, X-O Manowar, which has been in the throes of its "Planet Death" storyline, will embark on a new arc, this one featuring The Eternal Warrior, who was last seen in Archer & Armstrong, in a story that will be collected in a trade paperback out this same month. See how it all ties together?

Writer James Asmus (Thief of Thieves, Gambit, The End Times of Bram & Ben) and artist Tom Fowler (Venom, Hulk: Season One) punt the world’s worst superhero team headfirst into the Valiant Universe! 
 
Once upon a time, Eric and Woody Henderson were inseparable. Adopted brothers. Best friends. Brilliant minds. Years later, they are estranged siblings, petty rivals, and washed-up failures. But when their father’s murder leads them into the throes of a life-altering scientific accident, Eric and Woody will find themselves with a whole new purpose – and a perfectly legitimate reason to wear costumes and fight crime. Go big or go home, folks! Quantum and Woody are coming! And the action-packed, zeitgeist-shredding exploitation stunt comic you demanded is here at last. 
 
(And, yes, there will be a goat too. Eventually.)

ARCHER & ARMSTRONG VOL. 2: WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR TPB
Written by FRED VAN LENTE
Art & Cover by EMANUELA LUPACCHINO
 
No one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the undying Eternal Warrior. After thousands of years on the battlefield, he’s a master of strategy and weaponry, an unrelenting force of nature capable of dismantling entire armies with little effort and less conscience. His brother Armstrong, on the other hand, likes to read poetry and drink beer. Maybe that’s why they had such a bad falling out? But now – after years apart – the Eternal Warrior has a new mission: destroy young Obadiah Archer, Armstrong’s best-est new buddy and teammate in the war against The Sect. And, like it or not, Valiant’s history-smashing adventure duo are about to feel the brunt of the Eternal Warrior’s fist and steel.
 
Collecting ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5-9 by New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and critically acclaimed artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor), the second volume of the series that IGN calls "hilarious and action packed" slams into high gear with a savage manhunt straight through the heart of the Valiant Universe.
