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 superstar Donovan Santiago!

I cant contain my hype; I've been waiting for this.

First Valiant book that I am going to pass on without trying. I do this as I have dropped both A&A and Q&W so I don't believe that this will appeal to me.

I can't see any possible way that this isn't hysterical.

I want to see Valiant try (and fail) to make something bad.

I feel like we should check to see if they're aliens at this point.

Agreed...plot hole of the century: if she hates Silk, why doesn't she cover the mind-corrupting equation he tattooed on her back?

Yeah, If she wants to take him down, why is she helping spread his influence? But the actual reason I posted the scans was how bad a jobber Kindt makes Gilad out to be. He is the greatest and most experienced fighter in the world, but he gets beat to shat by a near braindead woman who not only misses her opponent from 5 feet away, but the shot hits the ground.

I'm all excited for this (the only thing I check in Valiant solicits every month), but kinda disappointed that it is only a mini-series. Oh the deception! T_T

(But seriously, buy the f- out of this book and hope that Valiant upgrades this book into an on-going.)

Just added this to my "pull list" at my store.

Unlike you, my rating or Valiant is not dependent on what they do with one character :p

But Kindt is being so biased, it sucks. He gives Ninjak any and all the fights, and reduces Gilad's only page time to being beat up by cannon fodder.

But that map. It's just so wrong. In so many, many ways. Getting this, for sure.
