Valiant’s Archer and Armstrong Bound for the Big Screen 

Seems like Hollywood producers have been catching up on their indie comics lately!  Archer and Armstrong, newly revived in 2012 by Fred van Lente and Clayton Henry, has been picked up by the Sean Daniel Company, a.k.a. the production company that did the Mummy movies.  This odd-couple action series is about a young fundamentalist teaming up with an immortal dude for fun and excitement. The premise might sound a little weird, but the first issue is free on comixology until the end of the month, so you’re better off checking it out yourself.

Zero is something of a sleeper hit for Image–you hear good things about it but it’s not one of the big breakout stars like Saga or Black Science.  Still, the book, which has a different artist every month, is one of the best spy stories in the market today.  It’s good to see that they’re working to bring it to television, though I wonder if they can make the series’ use of flashbacks work on screen.  Plus, while Ales Kot’s quote about “bleak male rage” in the interview made me groan, Zero is a way better comic than he makes it sound.


Artist Nate Bellegarde Opens Up About Nowhere Men’s Delay
