Score:
★★★★☆ (4/5)


QUICK REVIEW: Valiant's most entertaining odd couple returns with a new series of misadventures. The fine-tuned fighting machine that is Archer needs to help his best bud Armstrong, the immortal party animal to try and regain his immortality. 'Forever' serves as a great refresher for fans new and old as their friendship is tested as they become the target of villains holding grudges. The issue is classic A&A action done with a laugh and a smile. Despite the lightheartedness, the art is brilliant and dynamic by Marcio Fiorito and Alex Guimarães. The combination of stunning fight choreography and the timing of the jokes really speaks to the cohesive storytelling between the creators. It's a great starting point and continued journey for these beloved characters that Steve Foxe handles with great care allowing each to shine with their distinctive personalities. The controlled chaos and gags pay off making this an enjoyable silly ride.  Archer & Armstrong is back on their BS again and not a moment too soon. Comics need some superhero shenanigans and A&A is here to save the day.
