Archer and Armstrong, the BWS run, was without a doubt my favorite all time Valiant comic book. I was uncertain if the new writers could match that - and to their credit, they haven't tried to become a mirror image. With an homage to the original, they have taken the book in their own direction, and it only gets better each issue. The return of the most-mistmatched buddy comic superhero book is complete!
