Collects Archer and Armstrong (1992-1994) #0-6.
The most unlikely traveling companions are back! This Valiant special edition hardcover collects the full Archer & Armstrong origin story for the first time ever, digitally recolored and including the all-new story, "Formation of the Sect," detailing how the secret organization came to power, by legendary creator Jim Shooter, illustrators Sal Velluto and Bob Almond, and with an all-new cover by legendary artist Michael Golden! When Archer's preacher parents betray and try to murder him, he goes in search of enlightenment, returning years later seeking revenge as the world's greatest hand-to-hand fighter. However, instead of revenge he finds Armstrong, the centuries-old immortal wanderer who spends his time drinking, fighting and spinning tales of his hedonistic adventures throughout history! When a ruthless cult and its bumbling agents try to enlist Archer to kill Armstrong (the one they believe to be the Devil), the two most unlikely traveling companions turn the tables and team up to face down the threat that could destroy the world!
