Archer is a young man who can replicate any fighting style he sees. He was also raised at a fundamentalist religious theme park to become a trained assassin. Armstrong is a 5,000 year old immortal who is always looking to have a good time, which usually involves alcohol. They meet when Archer leaves his home for the first time on a mission to kill his family's greatest enemy.
This book strives on being ridiculous. The premise is silly while being familiar. I like the asides that mention what sort of style Archer is using in different fights. There are also some nice references to other comics. I've read one other book featuring these characters, but this one sets the stage nicely. It gives enough information to allow the reader to get familiar with the characters. At the same time there is stuff here that hardcore fans will get a kick out of.
There is a bit of a thriller element as they try to track down pieces of a machine known as the Boon. What made this book work is that it combines elements from a few different genres without feeling forced. The art is pretty good too. I definitely like the interior work more than the covers. Something about Mico Suayan's style doesn't appeal to me. The rest of it meshes well with the story being told.
