Three more additions to my 2014 Cryptozoic Archer Master Set debut today. All three cards come courtesy of my buddy Kyle, one of the premier Archer collectors in the world. Yes, it's more from that same large purchase. And yes, I'm dragging it out over many, many posts.
Amber Nash's auto kicks it off. Pam Poovey is easily one of the best characters on the show, and I'm happy to also have a few sketches depicting the HR Director at ISIS. Before Pam, Nash did voice work for the wonderful Frisky Dingo, another Adam Reed masterpiece and the predecessor in so many ways to Archer.
Jessica Walter portrays Archer's mother, Malory, who heads ISIS. Their relationship is....different, to say the least. Walter's signature proved difficult to find at a good price but thankfully patience and Kyle busting about a thousand cases lead to this baby entering my PC. She's known for her role on Arrested Development (with half the Archer cast) as well as starring in Play Misty for Me with Clint Eastwood.
Today's final card features the John Hancock of one Ona Grauer, who voices Russian defector Katya Kazanova. She leaves the KGB and falls in love with Archer before being killed on their wedding night by Cyborg Barry. She eventually ends up heading the KGB. Grauer is most well-known for her work in three offerings from the Stargate franchise. She also had roles in Fringe, Elysium, and John Doe. She's Mexican, Norwegian, Hungarian and German. I would marry her in a heartbeat.
The backs were scanned to make note of one difference. Some of the voice actors and actresses have their photos on the back while others are simply shown as their character. I quite like the ones which feature the people behind the animated people. It's a nice touch. My Want List approves of this post.
