Ever since they were relaunched by Valiant Entertainment, Archer and Armstrong and Quantum and Woody have been two of my favorite books on the market, and it’s no stretch to say that it’s because they take a very similar approach to a classic superhero trope. They’re both the stories of mismatched pairs, buddy comedies that throw in strange conspiracies, bizarre mysteries and wanton destruction into a blender and end up with a smoothie made of highly enjoyable comics. So naturally, it was only a matter of time before they joined forces to form a mismatched pair of mismatched pairs, which is exactly what happens in this week’s first issue of The Delinquents.

And as you might expect, it gets pretty weird. Like, “mysterious treasure map made from the skin of a hobo’s ass” weird.

Plotted by Archer and Armstrong writer Fred Van Lente and Quantum and Woody writer James Asmus, with a script by Asmus and art by Kano, The Delinquents #1 is out this week, and wastes no time getting as strange as it possibly can. Check out a preview below:
