This summer, Archer & Armstrong are bombarding the Big Top to reveal the stomach-churning secrets at the heart of America’s most tasteless traveling circus…and it’s no laughing matter! 


Valiant is proud to present your first look inside A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #6 – the FIRST ISSUE of “NEXT STOP CLOWNTOWN,” an ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT from rising star Rafer Roberts (HARBINGER RENEGADES) and Eisner Award-winning artist Mike Norton (Revival)! They’ve got lions. They’ve got bears. Oh, and malformed mutant clones too! Oh my! Valiant’s mismatched pair of conspiracy-smashing heroes thought they’d stumbled into an ordinary roadside funfair…but now Archer & Armstrong are about to become the star attractions of a midway where mad science and illicit experimentation rule the day!

Archer & Armstrong are on the hunt for Armstrong’s long-lost wife, and the clues have put them on the trail of America’s craziest traveling circus! But it’s not just clowns, carnies, and strongmen lurking under the Big Top… When the world’s premier adventure duo discover dozens of mutated Armstrong doppelgängers secretly running the show, all heck is bound to break loose! And it’s only going to get worse when Davey the Mackerel returns with a shocking new set of secrets about Armstrong’s bottomless satchel…and what else might be soon plotting its escape!
