Well, when this comic was first announced it was thought that there was no way that it could have been written better than the original. Fred van Lente however have proven without a doubt that this notion was undoubtedly wrong: In this first Archer and Armstrong deluxe collection FVL does a truly fantastic job of both establishing the lead pair and endearing them to the reader. There isn't a moment when you're not willing these guys to succeed, especially when they're bickering with each other as these two incredibly mismatched characters find their way around their differences and start forming the beginnings of a long-running and rock-solid friendship. Great humour in this book is balanced well with more serious moments and there are some brilliant seeds planted early on in the plot that ripple through both to later issues of the comic and other comics in the Valiant line. The only thing I can recommend more than buying this collected edition is also buying the second volume at the same time to make a marathon read of it!

Archer and Armstrong is easily one of the best titles that Valiant Entertainment has put together. The story line is witty, well written, and an entertaining read every time. It is a cost effective, easy to keep (all the comics in one place) way to be introduced to one of the best comics out there right now. In addition to the great (and I mean GREAT) story, the hard cover comes loaded with a bunch of extra - behind the scenes information, art work, all sort of stuff that makes a fan squee with delight. Honestly, if you like comics, I can't think of a reason NOT to buy this deluxe hardcover issue.
