Best Comics of the Week: Arriving February 7 – FEATURING:
ARMSTRONG & THE VAULT OF SPIRITS #1
Writer: Fred Van Lente
What secrets await inside the Vault of Spirits?
Deep beneath New York City’s seediest dive bar, Armstrong – the hard-hitting, harder-partying immortal veteran of history’s greatest escapades – is hosting an invitation-only affair for his most beloved friends and allies! Archer… Ivar, Timewalker… Faith… Quantum and Woody… And special guests from across the Valiant Universe… All have been offered a seat at the table for a personally guided tour of Armstrong’s most valuable and tightly guarded treasure… From the Great Flood to ancient Greece to the height of the Crusades, raise a glass as Armstrong recounts the true stories of his wine-soaked path down through the ages and the artifacts that reside within his own secret archive!
ARCHER & ARMSTRONG maestro Fred Van Lente returns with rising star CAFU (RAPTURE) to chronicle the first landmark solo adventure in the very (very, very) long life and times of Valiant’s very own disorderly immortal!
Writer: Ivan Brandon
Artist: Esad Ribic
War has become a spectator sport. Privately funded armies of superstar soldiers march into battle for fame, profit, and the glory of their sponsor nations.
When a new generation of soldiers arrive, top gladiator Satta Flynn is about to discover how fleeting the limelight can be.
From writer IVAN BRANDON (BLACK CLOUD, DRIFTER) and superstar artist ESAD RIBIC (Secret Wars, Uncanny X-Force) in his creator-owned Image debut, with painted color by NIC KLEIN (DRIFTER, VIKING) and graphic design by TOM MULLER, VS delivers spectacular action, darkly humorous satire, and explores our hunger for fame and our penchant for self-destruction.
X-MEN RED #1 LEG
Writer: Tom Taylor
Artist: Mahmud A. Asrar
The Hate Machine Part 1
THE FIRST SENSATIONAL ARC OF AN ALL-NEW TEAM OF X-MEN STARTS HERE!
