Fawkes and Eisma Bank on ARCHER & ARMSTRONG: THE ONE PERCENT #1 – Coming in November!
This November, crime pays when Valiant’s viceroys of villainy – the secretive One Percent of Wall Street – step into their very first solo adventure!
Valiant is proud to announce ARCHER & ARMSTRONG: THE ONE PERCENT #1 – an all-new one-shot tale spinning directly out of the pages of Archer & Armstrong’s Harvey Award-nominated ongoing series!
Arriving in stores this November, join Eisner Award-nominated creators Ray Fawkes (Batman Eternal, Constantine) and Joe Eisma (Morning Glories) as they reveal the secret inner workings of a power-obsessed conspiracy that secretly runs the world from the catacombs beneath the Financial District.
They tried to save the Euro, but almost destroyed the world. Thwarted by the adventurers known as Archer & Armstrong at every turn, Valiant’s own wolves of Wall Street then turned their attention to Occupy Wall Street…and we all know how that worked out! Now, in the wake of their greatest victory, a vicious new brand of One Percenter is about to rise to the top of his class, and this time there will be no one to BAIL OUT their enemies as Archer & Armstrong face down a brand new kind of hostile takeover!
“[As] readers of Archer & Armstrong are aware, the One Percent are a conspiracy that happens to be true in that universe, about a bunch of Wall Street investors and bankers and types who have cut actual deals with the devil – or at least they say so,” writer Ray Fawkes told Comic Book Resources. “They do black magic and that’s got a lot to do with why they’re secretly ruling part of the world – or at least, it’s got something to do with why they’re so super rich! They’re very, very, very bad people, and this is our chance to show how they work behind the golden masks of bulls and bears.”
Featuring a standard cover by fan favorite artist Juan Doe – plus two limited, special edition shelf covers featuring perforated, fully detachable One Percent bull and bear masks by legendary artist and designer Rian Hughes – get rich or die trying this November as Ray Fawkes and Joe Eisma foist a brand new breed of villain to the top of the corporate ladder in ARCHER & ARMSTRONG: THE ONE PERCENT #1! (That will be $3.99, please.)
