365 Comics...144: Archer & Armstrong #0 (2013)

I've never read the classic epics... Beowulf, The Odyssey, The Iliad, Gilgamesh etc.  I mean who has the time to read these long, plodding, primitive scripts when there's so many comic books to read?  Plus, comics can tell these tales so much more consicely, if not at accurately, like in this Zero lssue of Archer & Armstrong wherein Armstrong relays the true story of Gilgamesh in oh about 20 pages or so.  Of course the true story of Gilgamesh is all about Amstrong and his two brothers finding the Spider Alien technology that would inevitably grant them their immortality... just like the original epic, right?  I'm ready for the test.
