New Archer & Armstrong Series Being Developed

Post by Gregg-K »

Hey guys,

I thought you'd like to know that Associate Editor David Menchel revealed a new Archer & Armstrong run is being developed. He describes the upcoming run and says why he's excited about it here: https://twitter.com/ValiantComics/statu ... 3_NTkV_GO8

I don't need Van Lente, but I need the 1% behind all the mayhem. Don't need some OTHER bad guy, when we have plenty out there. Keep them around like PRS

I loved FVLs run, but I’d have no problem with another writer as long as they don’t suck. Despite some people not enjoying FVLs more out there concepts, he seemed to just “get” A&A. You need another writer who “gets” them not just has a pitch.

For what it's worth, I think the writer is very talented and extremely underrated. I've been a fan of them for quite some time now...

And always appreciate the feedback, thanks!

Mark Russell would be a good fit for Archer & Armstrong.

Things I didn't know I wanted...

Honestly, I'm more interested in who the artist is. I'm hopeful for someone more akin to a Francis Portella in style than someone like Emilio Laiso on X-O.

very true, Buggsy! He does just seem to "get" A&A very well. his bizzare concepts seem to fit well with the duo too!

+1 to everything said above - I really loved FVL's A&A run, but I also don't think he's the *only* guy to get on a new A&A series. Bugsy said it best - get someone who *gets* the characters, not just someone with an absurd comedic pitch.

FVL [VEI era] & BWS [VH1 era] had the very best two takes on these characters ever. Surely there is someone else out there who can attain that level of writing with them again.
