    Archer & Armstrong's 25th Anniversary Hullabaloo is a solid anniversary issue that takes a moment to pause, reflect, and look forward. It celebrates the story without getting too serious about it, which is one of the reasons why this is such a consistently fun comic to read. 25 issues is far too short a time to spend with such great characters, but luckily for us, I think we're in for a long, exciting, funny ride.

    Archer & Armstrong #25 is the perfect gift for readers, with its wealth of world-building, action, and humor. This issue also serves as a great lead-in to other titles, like The Delinquents and the upcoming series Ivar, Timewalker. Valiant's comic universe is only getting bigger, so let's look forward to more special anniversary issues in the years to come! Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 30, 2014

    Archer & Armstrong #25 sees an end of an era, giving a varied selection of fun stories. It does however fall into the same trap that most anniversary issues do, with the varying stories leaving a mixture of feelings. Despite this the large majority of this final issue is to a very high standard and comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Adam Alamo Nov 4, 2014

    With Archer & Armstrong #25, Valiant brings to a close another great series with a plus-sized anniversary issue. While I didn't think it was as tight or relevant as previous anniversary issues, it did pack a lot of humorous material that kept with the spirit of the series. It also demonstrated that while this chapter may have ended, there are still plenty of stories left to tell. It saddens me to see this series end for now, but I look forward to reading more about this unlikely duo in whatever incarnation their story takes in the future. Read Full Review
