    The perfect book for new and old fans as the "Sect Civil War" begins. I know there are many books that come out every week but don't miss this one. Archer and Armstrong is a great read that makes you realize why you love comics in the first place. Read Full Review

    Overall thoughts, I have to say that it was a good introduction to the Archer and Armstrong corner of the Valiant Universe. I highly recommend picking up this issue if you're a newcomer and want to get into a Valiant series. I know I want to go back and read some of the past issues of Archer and Armstrong now. So, Valiant, you can consider that a win in your books. You have a new reader in me who will now put this series on their pull list from here on out. Read Full Review

    Khari Evans' art looks great. Some scenes feel a little crowded and some of the action a bit muddled, but overall the issue is awesome. Archer's dark, amusement park battle is a highlight, for sure. He gets to really cut loose here, drawing different factions of the sect that range from the cool (Sisters of Perpetual Darkness) to the incredibly bizarre (Black Bloc). There's a lot going on, but Evans is the right guy to draw it all. As usual, Archer and Armstrong is a must read. Read Full Review

    It's fun to see the One Percent and the Sisters of Perpetual Darkness back, and new artist Khari Evans picks up where Pere Perez left off. He gives even the sternest characters rubber faces to match Van Lente's dialogue, starting with Akhenaten and rolling right up to the climax. His linework keeps the art style consistent as this new arc of my favorite Valiant series kicks off. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 14, 2013

    Of the three issues I've sampled from Valiant over the past month, "Archer and Armstrong" #14 is the least compelling, but it is much more compelling than anything from DC Comics' Villains' Month. This comic isn't as action-packed as "Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps" nor is it as comical as "Quantum and Woody." Taken on its own merit, however, there is a lot of potential in the ongoing Sect infighting as Archer tries to find answers to all of his questions. "Archer and Armstrong" is another win for Valiant and another comic more readers should be checking out. I accepted the open invitation offered to new readers in "Archer and Armstrong" #14 and plan on coming back for more. Read Full Review
