Archer & Armstrong


Animal Man

Archer is the world’s greatest hand-to-hand fighter, an expert marksman and a seeker of righteousness. At age eleven, his corrupt parents attempted to murder him, and succeeded momentarily. But somehow, Archer came back to life, filled with a burning purpose—to bring his parents to justice and fight evil such as theirs wherever it flourished. Though he later learns of his parents finally brought to justice while he was preparing himself by learning the martial arts in a Himalayan monastery, Archer decided to continue with his vow. Armstrong is a ten-thousand-year old libertine as strong as a battalion, who abandoned naïveté and idealism millennia ago. Now, he spends his days drinking, carousing and telling tales of his unbelievable adventures throughout history to anyone who will listen—that is, when he’s not on the run from an ancient cult whose bumbling agents have been hunting him for two thousand years. Armstrong escapes when he can and fights when he has to. The two men eventually meet and become partners—a team chosen by fate to face a truly terrible evil that threatens to destroy the world!
