Dinosaurs! Flight 19! The lost colony of Roanoke! Alien Greys! Ambrose Bierce?! The mysterious disappearances of history have all wound up in the hollow world called The Faraway - and now so have Archer & Armstrong and their arch-nemesis! Can the Valiant Universe's greatest conspiracy-busters find their way out before they're trapped forever? And we warn you to have your insurance premiums paid up before reading the last page revelation of the origin of The Boon - because your jaw will drop! (And, probably, need to be reattached surgically.)

    Perez is able to match Van Lente's style perfectly, emphasizing the jokes of one of the best comics out there. Read Full Review

    So, yeah: Archer & Armstrong remains unimpeachably fun, and while Archer & Armstrong #11 is the second part of an arc, it's also a pretty solid place for new readers to jump on. Van Lente has a talent for making most issues new-reader friendly, with a quick, witty tone that builds on what came before without wallowing in it. Solid action, great characters, quotable dialogue – Archer & Armstrong is the perfect ‘hangout' book, a title I'd read even if nothing were really happening except for its leads hanging around a bar goofing off. The fact that it manages to excel, not just as a hangout comedy but also as an action comic, speaks to the talents of Van Lente, Perez, Baron and Bowland. I'm serious: You should probably be reading this book. Read Full Review

    ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #11 is the perfect mixture of adventure and humor. There's a reason so many reviewers around the net are giving this book (as well as many of Valiant's other titles) so much praise: It's that damn good. The art and the writing are top notch, and it's one of the handful of books I cannot wait to read. I get excited and impatient for the next issue. I'm not just blowing smoke. This book is fun and worth your time and money. Or you can continue buying comics that make you feel dead inside just because your favorite character is on the cover. Your choice. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Jul 16, 2013

    The Valiant Universe is better off for Archer & Armstrong and comic fans should be jumping on this title in droves. This book is a well rounded combo of action and fun that as a fan of comics must be on your pull-list. Van Lente captures the perfect tone of this book and this is a title you do not want to miss!

    If you've been following the series then this is yet another strong issue. If you're new to it then you may want to grab the last two issues (one of those being the zero issue) either in the back issue bin or digitally. It's a fun series and as I said before this is a great return to form. This is the type of issue I expect from Archer & Armstrong, but that doesn't mean that it's the only issue I want to read. Where's the fun in reading that over and over again, but this is another Valiant series knocking it out of the park. Read Full Review
