Arriving in stores on August 20th is a new mini-series from Valiant, The Delinquents sees the publisher teaming Quantum and Woody with Armstrong and Archer, As if that wasn’t impressive enough the 4 parter is penned by James Asmus (Quantum and Woody, Gambit) and Fred Van Lente (Quantum and Woody, The Mocking Dead, Incredible Hercules) with Spanish artist Kano (Quantum and Woody, Immortal Iron Fist) penciling interiors and Eisner winning Paolo Rivera (Daredevil) providing the cover art.
The details provided for the series are;
Confrontation! Devastation! Inebriation! (And the lost secret of the hobos too!) Oh dear God no, you’d better get out of the way…because here come THE DELINQUENTS!
Quantum and Woody are the world’s worst superhero team. Archer & Armstrong are a mismatched pair of conspiracy-busting adventurers. When a mysterious force unites these ill-suited and irresponsible “heroes” for a cross-country race through the darkest corners of American mythology, all hell is bound to break loose. Can two busted pairs become four of a kind in time to defeat the Hobo King, save the day, and make it back home in time for happy hour? Let’s hope so…’cause these guys make a really, really bad team. (And you don’t even want to know about the Goat!)
The race begins on August 20th, only in THE DELINQUENTS #1 (of 4) – featuring a standard cover by Eisner Award-winner Paolo Rivera, plus a #ValiantCraft shelf cover by Valiant 8-Bit superstarDonovan Santiago!
