Archer & Armstrong Forever #1
ARCHER & ARMSTRONG FOREVER #1 marks the eagerly anticipated return of Valiant Entertainment’s fan-favorite and adventurous duo. When the carefree, hard-drinking, and immortal Aram Anni-Padda, a.k.a. Armstrong, seemingly loses his ability to heal from any wound and believes his days as an immortal are finally coming to an end, his young and optimistic best friend Obadiah Archer will travel the world in search of mythical artifacts to save his dear friend.
It has been some time since I’ve read an A&A comic, and this one doesn’t disappoint. I don’t have much experience with Foxe’s work, but man is it good! Two pages in and I was laughing hard! This book is seriously funny! I’ve forgotten how humorous Valiant is, and this issue is a great reminder.
Foxe’s dialog is too good, little tiny bits of knee slapping humor, mixed with some amazing action. Just some of the dialog’s lines are so sharp and I love it. The story is a really interesting one too! No spoilers, but something happens and Armstrong believes his time as an immortal is up, however Archer refuses to agree. I really can’t wait to see where this story leads, as I feel like it’s going to send Archer down some paths he shouldn’t go. And as always, A&A have some interesting bad guys, and this issue is no exception. We don’t see much, but let me tell you, this series is going to be a good time.
I wish I could show you some of the art too! While it was uncolored, it was some great line art. I found myself forgetting that this comic isn’t colored. The facial expressions alone make this comic funny. The action is well drawn, and all the art is very crisp and clear. I can’t wait to see the art colored! But even colorless this book is a stand out for sure! I also just want to quickly add, that the covers for this issue are something else, the one with Jesus had me laughing and in awe of it’s beauty.
I really want to tell you all more, but I don't want to ruin this issue for you! I really want everyone to go preorder this comic! I mean, I love all Valiant's stuff, but it's so fun to see a lighter side! I missed A&A!
