DECEMBER 2012

Archer & Armstrong #5

Written By: Fred Van Lente

Art By: Emanuela Lapacchino

Covers By: Patrick Zircher, Doug Braithwaite and Emanuel Lupacchino

Description: New arc! Not even time itself can escape the Eternal Warrior! No one in the Valiant Universe is more terrifying, more dangerous or more experienced in the art of war than the undying 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 wrath of the Eternal Warrior’s fist and steel.

Bloodshot #6

Written By: Duane Swierczynski

Art By: Manuel Garcia

Covers By: Arturo Lozzi and Trevor Hairsine

Description: What dark secret connects Project Rising Spirit and Toyo Harada’s Harbinger Foundation? Bloodshot is the creation of Project Rising Spirit, and for years they’ve loaned him out to the U.S. government for the kinds of insane, blood-splattered missions that only a nanite-enhanced commando could possibly survive. But those will be nothing compared to the horrors that await him inside the heavily fortified walls of PRS itself, whose subterranean levels are populated by failed “projects” that kill and maim for fun. And God help anyone who dares pry open the doors to the “nursery”…

If the Abettors — the mysterious organization that’s spent hundreds of years protecting New Orleans — can reach Jack first, he’s got an outside shot at making it through the night.
