As we glimpse this exclusive preview of next month’s Archer & Armstrong #3, let’s ponder the inner workings of that unholiest of covens, the Sisters of Perpetual Darkness. What kind of vows does such a nunja take amidst their extensive training in melee combat? What foul secrets do they protect, stationed in Rome, so close to Peter’s seat? For whom do they pray, and upon whom do they prey?
I live about two blocks from a convent, so this next one’s gonna leave me extra vigilant for the next week or so. Regular nuns can be intimidating enough, especially when you’re in the third grade. Give them a sai and a license to kill, and that’ll put the fear of God in ya. Which explains devout young Archer’s reticence to go on the offensive. Luckily, he’s got Armstrong, the Uncle Buck of conspiracy busters to point him in the right direction. That’s more valuable than either angel or demon perched on his shoulders.

Those email forwards Grandma sends you? ALL TRUE. Every lurid cover of every supermarket tabloid? ALL TRUE. That impossible-to-read GeoCities site rambling on about truthers, birthers and black ops alien greys working for the U.N.? ALL TRUE. The Sect has dragged a curtain of confusion across the inner workings of your world, but fear not, the conspiracy-busters Archer & Armstrong are here to deliver Truth in the form of ass-kicking! (And ass-kicking in the form of ass-kicking.) Our heroes’ newfound friendship will face its greatest test as they battle The Sisters of Perpetual Darkness – the Nunjas (“ninja” + “nun”) who guard Rome’s blasphemous secrets. Obadiah Archer thought he had been betrayed by his family before, but nothing can prepare him for this!
Also: the existence of God will be proven for all time. Or disproven. One of the two.
