    Since the first issue, Archer & Armstrong has looked amazing, too, and that is thanks to Clayton Henry. This time around he is assisted by Pere Perez, but fear not, the art doesn't miss a step. It's just as stunning as always. Henry's action looks awesome, but he truly knocks it out of the park when it comes to the humor. The looks on characters' faces; the expressions and the reactions. That's where this book really shines. If you aren't buying Archer & Armstrong, then use that extra money you save each month to buy a hammer and hit yourself in the head. Read Full Review

    Issue #4 continues the momentum with more laughs and action as we see Archer and Armstrong battle Nazi Monks. Yes you read that correctly "Nazi Monks" and they can throw down for sure. Clayton Henry does a superb job on art duties and I am loving the little info boxes that Valiant throws in during the fights scenes that will highlight the particular style the fighter is currently using. A very awesome and cool book read. Read Full Review

    This is a creative team that knows their characters and keeps the story moving along like a freight train. They are proving to be among the best teams currently working and I don't doubt that their run has the potential to become a future classic. If you aren't reading Archer & Armstrong yet, you need to start. Read Full Review

    The colour work on this series has been excellent from the start. It really reflects the script in that it utilizes a wide range of colours and has playful buoyancy to it. A & A #4 will be one of the most colourful comics that you read this week. Guaranteed Read Full Review

    The third issue was good, but didn’t really do anything for me personally. This issue though was very strong and I liked it. I found it to be enjoyable and the character development for our main characters was substantial enough to keep me interested in the next story arc. The Eternal Warrior sounded like a good idea before, but now that I have more puzzle pieces I’m withholding my excitement until reading it. For now though, pick up this issue it’s good!

    ARCHER AND ARMSTRONG continues to be fantastic with issue 4. The book is a pretty big game changer for these two characters, and we get a ton of background info on both of them. This may not be the best place for new readers to jump on though. If you've been interested in picking up a Valiant book, all of which are incredibly good, this series would be my top pick for new readers. We're only four issues in, so you don't have to do too much backtracking. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    And if you thought the plot was going to be wrapped up nicely with no loose ends. Nope. Plenty of surprises, even for the characters themselves. Secrets about Archer are revealed. There is more depth to his sister that was first implied. And what are the consequences of the death of a Geomancer, even it was by accident? A pretty funny one, at that. I dare you to get through this one without laughing and wanting to read the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 21, 2012

    For an issue where the world nearly met its end, it all feels like mostly a letdown. I think I'm willing to see if a new arc can catch my interest, but as it stands, the series feels like it's just making itself up as it goes along, with no idea what it wants to be or do. Read Full Review
