Archer & Faith’s First Date in “A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5” – Coming in July from Valiant!

Valiant Comics is doing HUGE things lately. Already near-omnipresent at conventions held so far in 2016, they have also made other big news in the comic industry and beyond:

And it’s still only April! Well the latest from the hot indie publisher is the upcoming issue of A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #5. What’s so special about it? It features the first date of Archer with fangirl Faith, who will be receiving her first ever solo title, both of which hit stands on July 29th, 2016.

Here’s the official word from Valiant:


Archer Faith

This summer…love is in the air when Faith flies into the pages of Valiant’s smash-hit ongoing series for a first date that is going to sweep Archer off his feet!

Valiant is proud to announce a very special jumping-on point special coming on July 20th in A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5 – a Valiant milestone-in-the-making from rising star Rafer Roberts (Plastic Farm) and Eisner Award-winning artist Mike Norton (Revival)! On the very same day that Faith soars into her first ongoing series inFAITH #1, jump on board the monthly adventures of Valiant’s history-smashing adventurers here with a perfect standalone entry point as Obadiah Archer and Faith “Zephyr” Herbert set out on a romantic thrill ride that is going to change both of their lives forever! More crossbows than Sleepless in Seattle! More fistfights than The Notebook! This ain’t no ordinary team-up… It’s Archer and Faith’s first date!

Faith and Archer are both good people in a world where good people are in short supply,” stated series writer Rafer Roberts. “I don’t want to give too much away but like most first dates, it’s cute and awkward and in constant danger of being ruined by super-villain sneak attacks.”

With Armstrong on the road, Archer is taking some much-needed personal time…and bringing his long-distance romance with Los Angeles’s number-one superhero off of FaceTime and into the real world! As these friends take their relationship to the next level, will romance conquer all? Or will they still find the time to brawl with some loan sharks? When a teenaged martial arts expert and a high-flying psiot get together, anything goes!

Jump on board the acclaimed ongoing series that IGN calls “strong and endlessly entertaining” here with a perfect standalone introduction to the jaw-cracking, heart-thumping adventures of Archer and Faith on July 20th in A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5 – in stores the same day as FAITH #1! Featuring covers by Kano (Gotham Central), David Lafuente(Ultimate Spider-Man), Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), Joe Eisma (Morning Glories), Pere Perez (IVAR, TIMEWALKER), and Diego Latorre (Batman: Europa), don’t miss a star-crossed moment of comics history when paramour extraordinaires Rafer Roberts and Mike Norton introduce the world to Valiant’s number-one power couple, only in A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #5!
