Archer and Armstrong and Mary-Maria versus Bacchus - a dude who thinks he's the god of wine!

At last...Bacchus' diabolical plan stands revealed: get Archer and Armstrong drunk! Too bad one is an immortal with a liver of steel and the other is a bit of a lightweight. That can only mean one thing: Mary-Maria to the rescue! But can she and Armstrong put aside their differences in time to hold Archer's hair back? Or is he about to ruin the expensive interior of Armstrong's bottomless satchel?!

    Valiant is releasing some amazing books these days, and this has got to be one of—if not the—best. This series is dramatic in circumstance but lighthearted with humor. The creative team on this series is doing an amazing job of delivering talented, quality material that couldn’t bore you even on the 10th re-read. This is brilliant stuff that is well worth the read for anyone who enjoys a good story. Read Full Review

    I'm a sucker for Archer & Armstrong and I'm glad that I'm getting more stories with my favorite mismatched duo thanks to this creative team. While it does help to have read the previous series, Roberts does a good job of providing enough backstory to keep you from getting lost, and there's a ton of fun to be had here if you're new or an old fan. Dr. Josh gives this an". Read Full Review

    Though Archer and Armstrong have long been a staple of the Valiant Universe, this new title makes them read, feel, and look better than ever. Read Full Review

    A&A #3 is one of the most entertaining comics you'll read this month, but there's more to this issue (indeed, this series), than the surface would show you. WatchingArmstrong's emotional attachment to his booze is something that will actually make sense about half way through the issue. Despite the fun here, there's a deeper message to be gleaned from the comic's pages, and one that I may be interpreting entirely wrong " I may also be seeing something that isn't there, but at the end of the day, what you take from a comic is entirely down to you, and for me A&Ahas been a brilliant story that reminds me not that anything can be important to somebody no matter what others may think of that item.

    All-Comic - Amy Okamoto May 10, 2016

    A&A: The Adventures of Archer and Armstrong #3 is the perfect cocktail: one part action, two parts humor, with a splash of ribaldry. This intoxicating tale won't leave you with a hangover, but you will want to crash the afterparty. Read Full Review

    A&A is delivering on the promise of adventure and continues to be a laugh out loud book that competes with any of the books the big two are delivering right now. Read Full Review

    It's not perfect. Despite this issue leaning a little more on the drama side of things and not standing entirely on its own, it's still worth reading. It alludes to a great big climax in the next issue that will surely be more true to form for the book. Don't read this just to get to the next issue, though. ARCHER AND ARMSTRONG #3 may not be the best of the bunch, but even at its worst, it's still a book worth investing in. Read Full Review
