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 collides 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.)
Ok so maybe just a touch of commentary (wouldn’t be me without some!) These two series are the reason Valiant has done as well as it has, in my opinion. Both star likeable characters, in absurd but somehow believable situations. And the way the writers keep the Valiant Universe threaded together so well has been a treat for this tired Marvel/DC fan. If you haven’t been reading Q&W of A&A give this a try, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
