In “Hercules,” you had a lot of flashbacks – we called them “Mythbacks” – to Herc’s time in the mythic era. What’s going to be fun about “Archer & Armstrong” is we’re going to be doing something similar to that, but we’re going to have 10,000 years of history to choose from. Armstrong is one of the oldest surviving people from this great cataclysm that happened in prehistoric times interpreted by some as the great flood but we’ll see there may actually be something else going on there. He’s done and seen everyone and everything. It’ll be fun to constantly flash back to that. In that way, they’re very similar. Amadeus Cho, Hercules’ sidekick, and Archer are very different in the sense that Amadeus was very cynical, wiseass and even more irresponsible than Hercules was.”[/quote]

VALIANT Debuts ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #1 Cover
Obadiah Archer was raised to uphold three things above all else: the values of his parents, the love of his 22 brothers and sisters, and his lifelong mission to defeat the ultimate evildoer. Now, after years of training, Archer has been dispatched to the heart of America’s debauched modern day Babylon, aka New York City, to root out and kill this infamous Great Satan. Unfortunately, dying has never been easy for Archer’s target – the hard-drinking immortal known as Armstrong! Together, this unlikely pair of heroes is about to stumble headfirst into a centuries-old conspiracy that could bring the whole of ancient history crashing down on modern civilization.
It began with X-O Manowar, Harbinger and Bloodshot – could it all end here? Find out on August 8th when two mortal enemies come together to make an epic first impression on the Valiant Universe, only in Archer & Armstrong #1![/quote]

Très bonne lecture, à l’image des autres titres du relaunch Valiant. Qui va proposer un mensuel Valiant en français ?

ça serait une bien bonne idée.

(À suivre avec quelques pages du #2, bientôt)

J’avais déjà très envie avant les premières preview là je suis quasi convaincu.

[size=200]INTERVIEW DE FRED VAN LENTE[/size]

Pris de court par l’annonce de Robert Kirkman au sujet du prochain arc de la série The Walking Dead, l’éditeur Valiant annonce sa Guerre Totale (Sect Civil War) qui débutera aussi au mois d’octobre dans les pages de la série Archer & Armstrong:

[quote]EVERY ENEMY. AGAINST EACH OTHER.

SECT CIVIL WAR.

FRED VAN LENTE. KHARI EVANS.

OCTOBER 2013.
Now don’t expect Archer and Armstrong to just sit back and watch all of their enemies fighting amongst themselves… well, maybe Armstrong will for a bit, but Archer will be worried about who comes out on top. Regardless, in the second major war in the Valiant Universe this year alone, we should expect the zany antics of our heroes to be tempered by the horrors of - no wait, it’ll still be zany.[/quote]

Khari Evans, en plus. Pas mal.
