Reviews – A&A: The Adventures Of Archer & Armstrong, Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy & Shipwreck

A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #9, Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy #6 & Shipwreck #2

My thoughts on some digital comics

 

 
Kicking off a new arc with Armstrong meeting his forgotton wife, we start with the secret origin of the human race and the gods!
Adding to the humour in this issue we also get a mention of another hero – Florida Man! It’s a really good bit, with the 1% and the scientists from the previous arc teaming up! Meanwhile we catch up with the sister, in a nice piece where they are checking out a bank vault – I recommend this part in Guided View on comiXology, as it really makes it click well! Finishing off, it looks like we’re getting to what this arc is all about and it doesn’t look good for all of us!
 

 
The Lumberjanes and Gotham Academy team up concludes here, and I hope that we see more of this. It was a story with a perfect mix of the characters involved (they seem made for each other) magic and mystery. There was a lot of heart in this issue as everything gets sorted out well. Even the epilogue was a lot of fun. the artwork was perfect, with some excellent scenes!
The collection is out next year, so go get it!
 

 
We get a gruesome beginning in this issue, and the fact that it is all silent makes it all the more interesting. a really good ‘show, don’t tell’ A sky burial is an interesting thing, and I enjoyed this part. There’s an interesting feel to this, Warren Ellis creates characters who I could just read all day, I love their dialog and what they are thinking!
As well as this, combined with the excellent haunting art, we get a bigger look into the mystery, more hints (darkly told) as the journey continues.
Excellent!
