The official word is in from our benevolent overlords, Archer & Armstrong #1 has sold out before it even hits the stands, and is already going back to a second printing.
What this probably means is that retailer reorders for the book exceeded the amount printed, so they are putting this out there to satisfy the demand.
Which is good, since the book is good.
I think Archer & Armstrong will prove to be the most fun book to read every month.
Also, X-O Manowar #1 is going to a fourth printing! Gotta get them all!
Valiant’s hottest heroes have headed back to press! Valiant is proud to announce that Archer & Armstrong #1 by the New York Times best-selling creative team of Fred Van Lente & Clayton Henry has sold out at the distributor level in advance of its August 8th release date. To meet consumer demand for the fourth title of its “Summer of Valiant” relaunch, Valiant is rushing back into print for the Archer & Armstrong #1 Second Printing Variant – featuring an all-new cover by Clayton Henry!
The immortal adventurer called Armstrong has seen, heard and punched it all, but nothing could have prepared him for the bow-slinging teenage assassin known as Archer! After an attempted hit goes astray, Archer & Armstrong will find themselves pulled into globe-trotting race against the clock to uncover the ancient secret behind all of history’s greatest conspiracies. But if they don’t reach their destination in time, a weapon capable of near-mythic destruction might just destroy what could been a beautiful friendship. Oh yeah, and the world too!
Sometimes a secret is worth telling twice. Get ready to rewrite the history books when the most dangerous duo in the Valiant Universe make their mark with the Archer & Armstrong #1 Second Printing Variant – on sale in finer comic shops everywhere this August 29th.
And, arriving the same day, don’t miss your last chance to catch up with the title that relaunched the Valiant Universe for a whole new generation of comics fans when the X-O Manowar #1 Fourth Printing Wraparound Sketch Cover rockets into stores!
