Archer & Armstrong, the Eternal Warrior, and Ivar, Timewalker collide with King Arthur’s court for a swashbuckling one-shot adventure this April.
Writer Fred Van Lente will team with artist Cary Nord to take us back to the realm of Camelot where the immortal Anni-Padda brothers reunite to wage war against the fearless and formidable Green Knight.
Immortal Brothers: The Tale of The Green Knight #1 will tribute Barry Windsor Smith’s classic Archer & Armstrong/Eternal Warrior #8 in an extended 48 page one-shot.
The story begins in the winter at King Arthur’s court in Camelot. The monstrous Green Knight appears before the Round Table with no armor, a gigantic axe, and a challenge. He challenges the knights to strike him with his axe, but on one condition: The Green Knight can exact the same blow in one year’s time.
A young and gallant Sir Gilad takes up the challenge. He decapitates the Green Knight in one fell blow. However, the Green Knight doesn’t flinch instead he picks his head up and warns Gilad he is fated to receive the same blow before the year is out. Gilad, the Eternal Warrior, must solve the mystery of the Green Knight before the axe comes calling. And he’s going to need some help from his brothers, Armstrong and Ivar.
“I like the idea of checking in with [the immortal brothers] at various points in their history. They still can’t stand each other, no matter what situation they find themselves in,” writer Fred Van Lente told ComicsAlliance. “One’s smart, one’s cunning, and one’s strong, and they all have very different ways of attacking problems, so they’re constantly arguing about which one is better. But they do love each other. It’s like family, you love them as long as they’re on the other side of town.”
Immortal Brothers: The Tale Of The Green Knight #1 will feature covers by Cary Nord, Mico Suayan, Marc Laming, and J.M. Dragunas.
