Quantum and Woody #1
Quantum & Woody — the worst superhero duo in the world — are Earth’s LAST hope against stopping a coalition of mad scientists from destroying the planet!
Quantum and Woody are BACK with a brand new explosive series that gets downright weird in the best way possible. With a unique artistic approach that sets the series apart from anything else you’ve seen before, Quantum and Woody #1 proves to be a powerful force of pure sci-fi brilliance.
While the story is both wacky and heartfelt, it’s the artwork from Ryan Browne and Ruth Redmond that will have readers sucked into the story. It doesn’t get lost in the whimsy of science mixing with magic to displace an entire governmental process, instead, it uses the weirdness as a catalyst to explore this new situation the duo finds themselves in with excitement and mystery. All of the magical elements of the clash itself makes for a spectacle within a classic sci-fi narrative that feels true to the characters. Each and every page is just a treat to look at.
I’m truly looking forward to how the intriguing new mystery develops as the series progresses, but it was a smart choice to kick things off with a one-shot style issue that firmly establishes the two’s place in the Valiant Universe. It’s easy to jump into even for those who have never read a Quantum and Woody book, but doesn’t completely ignore their story thus far for longtime readers. Rarely do first issues have such a strong foundation for character development and worldbuilding, but Quantum and Woody #1 shows this creative team can hit the ground running with a fast paced and highly enjoyable story.
Ultimately, Quantum and Woody #1 is a strong outing for an exciting new series to kick off the Valiant 2020 initiative. The artwork is unique, and might be jarring to some at first, but it suits the whimsical nature of the story and helps it to stand out on its own. Vincent Van Goat doesn’t make much of an impact on the story…yet, but the emergence of a new magical mystery combined with the duo’s classic humor and chemistry give the first issue more than enough depth to keep you hooked for the next one.
Go pick up Quantum and Woody #1 and kick back with some of the zaniest characters at Valiant, you won’t regret it!
With a unique artistic approach that sets the series apart from anything else you've seen before, Quantum and Woody #1 proves to be a powerful force of pure sci-fi brilliance.
