Somedays, you just can't get away from a trained killer. Archer & Armstrong seem to be having that trouble with Gilad, the Eternal Warrior. Gilad is out to kill Archer, and is the brother of Armstrong. All he does is kill. Well, kill, and also chase around people he wants to kill. Here's a preview of some pages drawn by artist Emanuela Lupacchino, and a bunch of covers. Also, YOUR order form for a special variant as part of Valiant's Pullbox Variant program!
ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5 Delivers The Wrath of the ETERNAL WARRIOR!
First came Ninjak… Now prepare for the debut of Valiant's next superstar hero — the undying Eternal Warrior! Valiant is proud to present an advance preview of Archer & Armstrong #5 by New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente (Amazing Spider-Man) and artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor) — the FIRST ISSUE of "Wrath of the Eternal Warrior" and an all-new jumping on point for the series Comic Book Resources calls "refreshingly unpredictable"!
No one in the Valiant Universe is more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the 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 will soon feel the brunt of the Eternal Warrior’s fist and steel.
The manhunt begins on December 12th as two immortal brothers go to war for the life of Obadiah Archer, only in Archer & Armstrong #5 - featuring a cover by superstar artist Patrick Zircher and interlocking incentive variants by Emanuela Lupacchino! And, comic shop subscribers, don't forget to reserve your Archer & Armstrong #5 Pullbox Exclusive Variant today — featuring a limited edition cover by Doug Braithwaite!
