Nothing is forever. So say the Null. "The Wrath of the Eternal Warrior" gears up for its universe-shattering penultimate issue! "Nothing is Forever." That is the motto of the Null, the enemies of the Geomancers for centuries. Now, at last, the Null have found the key to the utter destruction of all that is -- and his name is Obadiah Archer! Can Aram and Gilad set aside their differences long enough to team up against Armstrong's best friend -- and will any of them survive the final battle?

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Mar 13, 2013

    Emanuela Lupacchino handles pencils this issue, with inks by Guillermo Ortego and colors courtesy of Matt Milla. Things look slick and everyone really seems to click. The art has a smooth, finished look that makes this an easy read. If there is one standout point, it's Milla's colors, which are simply stunning. Scene transitions work perfectly thanks to shifts in color and tone. Archer & Armstrong #8 is just a good comic book. Valiant knows how to do it and do it well. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kenneth Bowden Mar 14, 2013

    This issue displays a lot of what makes this title exceptional, we’re dealing with extremely high stakes dealt with in a low stakes manner, but done with style. The ridiculously silly is balanced with the right blend of action and suspense giving us a unique title unlike anything out from the “Big Two” and unique even among Valiant’s own books. Looking for something fresh and different, look no further Archer & Armstrong’s quality storytelling and solid art will definitely itch that scratch and leave you wanting more. Read Full Review

    ARCHER & ARMSTRONG is the only A.A. I need and you'll be able to say the same after reading this issue! (If you do have a serious problem with alcohol, or Archer & Armstrong, please seek advice from a doctor and not a comic book reviewer) We're building up to something big here, and it's pretty darn exciting. As with every issue, I demand you start reading this book because it's one of my favorite on-going series, and the book is awesome.Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Mar 15, 2013

    The twist in the climax of "Archer and Armstrong" #8, when Archer comes face to face with Zorn, is heavily foreshadowed. However, the exact details are still surprising. The last page has an excellent cliffhanger that involves the fate of the Geomancer, and seems to aptly sum up how "Archer and Armstrong" is a consistently entertaining buddy comedy with an unusually fine sense of setting and internal mythology.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Mar 20, 2013

    A very mechanical sort of issue, reusing a number of typical comic book tropes with Van Lente's humor to patch it all together. Read Full Review
