    There isn't much more for me to say about this issue (but there is a talking bear!), other than I really hope you go out and start reading this series. Whether you begin with this arc or not, when you pick up A&Abe prepared to find your new favourite comic. Read Full Review

    This sort of book isnot my forte, but this is a really good issue in a seriesthat keeps getting better and better. The Adventures of Archer and Armstrong keeps getting better issue to issue which is something hard to do. If you haven't yet, I really suggest you all give it a chance! Read Full Review

    This is a fun issue, and leads into finally finding out just why all these clones look like Armstrong, and why they exist to begin with. Oh, and maybe why that scientist bear can talk and, well, be a scientist. I'm on board for Clowntown, and wherever else this creative team takes my favorite Valiant book in the future.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Sep 8, 2016

    Clown cars, Armstrong clones, a talking bear - it's no surprise that the circus proves a perfect fit for Archer and Armstrong's irreverent brand. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Rafer Roberts' script (beyond, you know, the talking bear) is how well he balances the series' obvious absurdity with well-plotted progression. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Huck Talwar Sep 13, 2016

    This issue progresses the straight up weird scenario of Archer and Armstrong being stuck in a circus with a bunch of Armstrong clones. It's definitely a must-read book for anyone keeping up with the series and/or fans of the series. It's enjoyable, but previous knowledge of past issues does help in understanding the storyline, so new readers probably won't like it as much as we who have been reading every issue as they are released. Nonetheless, this is a bizarre yet beautiful issue, and I can't wait to see what happens next! Read Full Review
