    Well before I ramble on and spoil the book for everyone, I will leave you with this: BUY THIS BOOK. This creative team is at the peak of their game here, making another home run hit for Valiant. I'd give it 6 out of 5 stars if I could, but I am settling for 5 out of 5. Seriously, though, get it. Now. Read Full Review

    If you were uncertain last issue, this one should put your fears to rest: Archer & Armstrong are back. This new series shoots out of the gate with a new aesthetic design and a new slant on Valiant's premiere duo. It's fun and silly and done very well by this creative team. If you're a fan and haven't checked it out yet, do so. You won't be disappointed. Dr. Josh gives this an". Read Full Review

    This series has very quickly picked up the pace. We’re already seeing a lot of action, adventure, commotion, and a ton of awesomeness. I cannot wait to see more of these guys’ adventures. We’re only at issue #2, so you have time to catch up and keep reading along; you will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    A&A: The Adventures Of Archer And Armstrong #2 retains the sense of fun from the last issue, and it's like getting your favourite cold beverage after a week in the desert. With all the deeply dark and grim comics released these days, this is a lovely change of pace " not that I don't enjoy those comics, but sometimes I'd rather a hot chocolate instead of a cup of tea.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Apr 14, 2016

    The success of A&A: The Adventures of Archer and Armstrong's first issue was in large part due to the surprising lunacy of its premise. With the narrative cat out of the bag (or in the bag, as the case may be), issue #2 sees somewhat of a dip in terms of overall engagement. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Apr 17, 2016

    All and all I enjoyed this second issue, it is a vast improvement over the first instalment. Art that I'm not a fan of is easy to ignore when the story is well written and engaging. I am looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review
