This is going to be a big one!”The official Archer & Armstrong drinking game! The never-before-told story of Armstrong’s first drink! A very special Timewalker adventure! And more! It all happens here as Valiant’s conspiracy-busting, history-smashing swashbucklers saunter into the big two-five!

For ten thousand years, the immortal currently called Armstrong has been sleeping and boozing his way across Earth, keeping one step ahead of a secret cult – known simply as the Sect – obsessed with killing him. That all changed, however, when an 18-year-old Sect assassin named Obadiah Archer turned on his masters, and joined Armstrong for a globetrotting quest to bring down the Sect’s unholy coalition of conspiracies around the world. Nazi Buddhists! Probe-happy aliens! Dead celebs! The One Percent! And even an Eternal Warrior. But Archer & Armstrong’s fight is only just beginning – and they’ll face a dire series of daft and dangerous new perils when ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #25 strikes in October!

Featuring five fabulous covers from Archer & Armstrong legends past and present – including Clayton HenryShawn CrystalPere PerezJim Calafiore, and Michael Walsh – start reading here as one-half of the mischievous DELINQUENTS kick the tires on the year’s merriest anniversary milestone!
