    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Feb 14, 2013

    Emanuela Lupacchino does some great work here. Her style is vibrant and brings an energy to the page. When the action is front and center, the issue looks brilliant. She struggles a little in the quieter moments with the staging and perspective, but once people are driving cars through office buildings and spraying machine gun fire into villainous cults all is forgiven. The colors, by Matt Milla, feel little bizarre at times. There are florescent green tree lines and few too many neon backgrounds, but they don't drag the book down too much. Archer and Armstrong is just too good to let a little thing like overly bright coloring stop it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Feb 13, 2013

    It's not my favorite issue of the series so far, but overall, it's still an amazing ride. ARCHER AND ARMSTRONG 7 delivers a knockout punch of awesomeness across your weak jaw, putting you into a coma. I know some may find it annoying how much Gregg and I hype these Valiant books up, but truth be told, these are fantastic series. Archer & Armstrong is a solid, fun detective story you'll want to continue reading. It's becoming this very cool team book, currently, which I'm really liking at the moment. I can't wait to see where it goes next.Overall, I highly recommend this issue and series. Read Full Review

    Archer & Armstrong would rank among my top five for best new series of 2012. It's great to see this comic continue to have success into 2013 and don't expect this creative team to stop producing one of the most outlandish and amusing comic books on stands. Like a cheesy movie with the perfect cast and directors, Archer & Armstrong is a title that you will be able to enjoy again and again but without that guilty feeling of shame and the desire to shower afterward.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 18, 2013

    It's hard to tell if Van Lente actually has a serious story up his sleeve or if he's just playing around. If it's the former, he has a lot of work to do; if it's the latter, he doesn't do quite enough. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Jo Lewis Feb 12, 2013

    Van Lente's dialogue has made this the funniest book on the shelves. This month, however, he introduces such political and societal elements such as the 1% and global warming, as well as some kick-ass mathematics. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 13, 2013

    "Archer & Armstrong" #7 is another satisfying chapter in a comic that a year ago I would have thought to be near-impossible to revive. If you've been resisting giving the new "Archer & Armstrong" a try, I think this issue is a good example of the way that this series -- and the re-launched Valiant in general -- operates. That's a good thing. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Feb 14, 2013

    I’m honestly looking forward to the conclusion to this story arc a lot. It’s not that I haven’t liked it, but it hasn’t been as exciting as the first arc. I do wonder where this series is going considering they’ve already had two “end of the world” type events happen, but that’s the charm of comics… we’ll see. If you’ve been reading the series and enjoying it then there’s no reason to stop now; if like me you’ve been a little unimpressed with this story arc, fear not I’m sure that Valiant and Van Lente have something cool planned in the near future.
