Valiant does like their teasers, and the latest batch does give us a clue as to the tone of Archer & Armstrong. They call it “Meet the 1%.

Bulls & Bears?  Is someone taking a poke at Wall Street?  Surely not.  Here and I was thinking that the Archer & Armstrong preview was a little more serious than I was expecting.  No, I think A&A won’t be taking itself too seriously.

For something a bit more serious, Valiant has also issued a Bloodshot teaser.

    Protip: if you want your comics to be mainstream then you must leave kook political views at the door.

    But then these days it seems a lot of modern writers are as attached to their dogma as Frank Miller is to “whores.”

    Yeah! What do you think comics are? The West Wing? All in the Family? Boston Legal? The Daily Show with Jon Stewart? The Colbert Report?

    I agree Johnny. Comics have enough problems without alienating potentially 50% of your audience. It’s supposed to be escapism.

    The problem is that a purely escapist story is written without a point to it. It’s like making a movie that has no storyline, but terrific special effects.

    If a story does have a political viewpoint, then it’s more interesting, and it can be marketed to people who want to read stories with political viewpoints. That market is probably much bigger than the market of people who want purely escapist comics.

    SRS

  5. Maybe everyone should read the book first, before inserting your personal bias.

  6. Politics are fine, but the whole “demonize the rich” thing has gotten pretty stale. And the inclusion of the contrived line about “the one percent” strongly suggests that there’s nothing original or interesting about the philosophy behind this story.
