Secretive, methodical, the so-called 'One Percent'

View Comments

(AP) – Occupy Wall Street went after them and now a mismatched pair of heroes are doing the same.

Whereas the so-called “one percent” is blamed for having a majority of wealth at the expense of the other 99 percent, in Valiant Comics’ upcoming “Archer & Armstrong,” it’s a secretive and sinister cabal of money managers and financiers willing to sacrifice more than jobs for profit – human lives, too – to steer the fate of the world for their own gain.

Writer Fred Van Lente says the story in issue one, due out Aug. 8, is part of comics’ tradition of tackling social issues and perceived bad guys, something that began way back in 1938 with Superman who, famously, went after war profiteers and gangsters.
