Anybody who has ever played a certain RPG involving caves and creatures knows that one of the best pieces of treasure you can acquire is the Bag of Holding. Seemingly an ordinary bag, it can hold tons of stuff without adding to your burden.
Now, imagine that a 10,000 year old immortal has such a bag and has used it as his own personal storage locker for most of that time. Oh, and this immortal is a hedonist and he's decided he needs a special bottle of Scotch out of the Bag.
The only problem is he forgot where he put it.
So, as hedonistic immortals are prone to do, he climbs into the Bag to find his booze, leaving the bag open and allowing some of the less desirable denizens trapped within to escape.
Sound like fun? Then A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong Volume 1: In the Bag
is for you.Writer: Rafer Roberts
Artist: David LaFuenteIn the Bag
is a rollicking adventure that is equal parts Highlander, Enter the Dragon
and Big Trouble in Little China
. By that I mean In the Bag
grabs great big chunks of genre and smashes them together into a delightfully unique mixture. If that doesn't at least peak your interest you may want to check your pulse.
In addition to being a fun adventure story, In the Bag
is funny as well. The quips and one-liners are delivered by characters on all sides of the conflict and they land perfectly thoughout.
I've never read any of the previous incarnations of Archer & Armstrong
, but if In the Bag
is an example of where Valiant Comics plans to take the characters in the future, well, I'm I convert.A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong Volume 1: In the Bag
is available now wherever you buy your comics. Give it a read. You won't be disappointed.
