Advanced Review by Scott Keys
Valiant Entertainment continues to bring the goods month in and month out. Archer and Armstrong #11 is just another example of how to properly relaunch a universe. If you enjoyed last week’s Quantum and Woody #1 and buddy comedies in general, then this is book will not disappoint!
Picking up where issue 10 left off, issue 11 continues to bring the action, adventure, and comedy that Archer and Armstrong has been dishing out since issue 1. Fred Van Lente does an excellent job of balancing the comedy and action, all while moving our story along and giving us those nice reveals to keep us coming back for more.
I also enjoyed Pere Perez’s art, which is a more simple, yet expressive and dynamic style, that lends itself well to Van Lente’s script. If you’ve been reading this book since issue 1, and enjoyed Clayton Henry’s art style, you should enjoy Perez’s style as well.
I have enjoyed every book in Valiant’s relaunch, and this book is no exception. Van Lente is one of my favorite current writers, and Perez does a fine job illustrating this fun story.
Archer and Armstrong #11 comes out July 17, 2013 from Valiant Entertainment at your local comic shop and digitally.
