Comic Book Reivew: A&A: Adventures of Archer and Armstrong #3

Archer Armstrong #3


Archer and Armstrong and Mary-Maria versus Bacchus – a dude who thinks he is the god of wine! At last…Bacchus’ diabolical plan stands revealed: get Archer and Armstrong drunk! Too bad one is an immortal with a liver of steel and the other is a bit of a lightweight. That can only mean one thing: Mary-Maria to the rescue! But can she and Armstrong put aside their differences in time to hold Archer’s hair back? Or is he about to ruin the expensive interior of Armstrong’s bottomless satchel?!


Things have gone from sort of bad to pretty bad for our less than dynamic duo (and Mary-Maria), as now Armstrong and a drunk Archer must battle their way out of the satchel against the forces of Bacchus to save humanity from the party god! After Armstrong makes a dear sacrifice, he’s able to sober up his little buddy and the trio start to kick some serious butt! Meanwhile Bacchus has infiltrated a frat party in the real world and soon discovers the unlimited potential such a situation provides him. Soon the entire world will be one big kegger! And if that sound ridiculous, well that’s exactly what Rafter Roberts does again with this issue, creating fun ridiculous scenarios that involve annoying frat boys calling a demonic looking party god “bruh!”. David Lafuente continues to deliver stellar artwork and finding beauty in the chaos of all the minion fighting within the Satchel. Top it off with colors from Brian Reber, and A&A continues to be a standout title from Valiant and worth picking up!

  • The Hey!: Some fun demon stomping by Armstrong and Mary Maria.

  • The Eh: A few returning gags happen and we are only in issue 3.

  • The What?!!: How Armstrong handles Archer’s drunken state.

  • Who should read this series?: This is a fun buddy comedy through and through. It can easily fit into an animated series alongside a Seth McFarlane show. Check it out for the laughs and great artwork.

  • Why should you buy this book?: I have a feeling our main story is coming to a close soon, so this is a good little cog in the great wheel of the plot!

Score B+
