Written by FRED VAN LENTE
Art by CLAYTON HENRY
Cover by ARTURO LOZZI
Character Design Cover by DAVID AJA
Those email forwards Grandma sends you? ALL TRUE. Every lurid cover of every supermarket tabloid? ALL TRUE. That impossible-to-read GeoCities site rambling on about truthers, birthers and black ops alien greys working for the U.N.? ALL TRUE. The Sect has dragged a curtain of confusion across the inner workings of your world, but fear not, the conspiracy-busters Archer & Armstrong are here to deliver Truth in the form of ass-kicking! (And ass-kicking in the form of ass-kicking.) Our heroes’ newfound friendship will face its greatest test as they battle The Sisters of Perpetual Darkness – the Nunjas (“ninja” + “nun”) who guard Rome’s blasphemous secrets. Obadiah Archer thought he had been betrayed by his family before, but nothing can prepare him for this!
Also: the existence of God will be proven for all time. Or disproven. One of the two.

Mister Tull’s strike force, members of the government agency Project Rising Spirit who hunt down Psiots, surrounds Peter Stanchek and his friends as the mental projection of Harada Toyo, the world’s most powerful psionic taking the form of a dog at present, looks on. Employing anti-Psiot technology, Peter’s fate seems grim as he begs Harada for help. Unmoved, Harada tells Peter he must use his own power, something he’s spent his life running from. After unlocking the terrifying abilities within, Peter takes down Tull and his men and formally joins the Harbinger Foundation. Meanwhile, we delve into Harada’s past when ten years earlier he saved the infant Darpan (the Mirror), a Psiot capable of making someone relive a tragic moment in their life but who also amplifies its pain, from the slums of India.Read More

Peter Stanchek has heard voices since he was a young boy, a phenomenon that led to him as being labeled crazy and institutionalized despite displaying other incredible abilities. Escaping from the hospital with his mentally unbalanced friend Joseph Irons, the pair have been on the run with a mysterious Mister Tull on their trail. Peter returns home to rekindle a childhood romance with Kris Hathaway which brings him directly into Tull’s sights as Peter meets the wealthy and powerful Harada Toyo on the mental plane, revealing the truth to Peter: Harada and Peter are Psiots, rare in that they were both able to naturally tap into the fantastic capabilities of the mind. Further, where Harada has measured his abilities discovering them to be vast, Peter’s ability has yet to even be explored. Harada has dreamed of Peter since the young man’s birth but waited until Peter has fallen his lowest, using his abilities to rape his childhood love Kris, to approach him and offer help as his teacher in order for Peter to join Harada’s crusade to save the world from itself.Read More
What’s Old is New Again: Valiant Comics by Jerry Whitworth
Founded in 1989 by former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Jim Shooter and former Allman Brothers Band manager Steven J. Massarsky, Valiant Comics was a bold, new independent comic book publisher that brought together industry veterans like Barry Windsor-Smith and Bob Layton to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the top of the pile of emerging publishers as part of the industry boom referred today as the Dark Age. While there are several meanings behind being titled as such, one aspect of the Dark Age that earned its name is the bubble bursting for the comic book industry’s rise that led to the collapse of most of the market. One of these casualties was Valiant. However, Valiant has returned and is publishing four monthly titles based on their properties. Lets take a look at these characters making a come back (it should be noted, characters like Turok, Solar, and Magnus, Robot Fighter were licensed to Valiant by Western Publishing and this license has since lapsed).Read More
