Ok, I have something to admit.
I’ve never read Quantumm & Woody.
I know it is the most-loved of all of the Acclaim comics released, and apparently, for good reason.
From what I know, Quantum & Woody is about two mis-matched, and slightly incompetent “super heroes”. Also, it is quite the entertaining read. Last of all, there is a goat involved somehow. I know this because I have the Goat “inaction” figure stored away in my closet.
Quantum & Woody has been made available on Comixology. The first half is available for download now, and the rest of the series will be made available next week.
I know I’ll be making this purchase, it looks like it is time to finally read this series.
The world’s worst superhero team is headed to comiXology! Valiant is proud to announce that the complete run of one of comics’ all-time legendary series, Quantum & Woody, will be re-released this October on comiXology, the revolutionary digital comics platform with over 100 million comic and graphic novel downloads to date. This Wednesday, October 24th, look for the first 12 issues of Christopher Priest and M.D. “Doc” Bright’s award-winning sensation, beginning with Quantum & Woody #1 for FREE on the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and the Web! The remaining issues of the series will follow the next week on October 31st.
“With few exceptions, Quantum & Woody are characters that we get asked about in just about every interview, in every piece of fan mail, at every convention, and just about everywhere in between. This is a series that has gained a die-hard following unlike any other in comics. Now, for everyone that never had a chance to jump into Priest and Bright’s subversive, envelope-pushing, and outright hilarious tribute to the superhero genre, we promise, it will have been well worth the wait.” said Valiant Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani.
“Plus, there is a goat with a cape,” he added. “Win-win, if you ask me.”
Quantum and Woody are the world’s worst superhero team! Eric Henderson is a decorated Army tactical officer. Each move he makes is planned with precision. Woody Van Chelton is a goofy white guy, who’s idea of detective work is hanging a suspect out a window. Investigating the suspicious deaths of their fathers, they become victims of a high-tech industrial accident that turns their bodies into pure energy. The metal gauntlets they each wear must be slammed together every 24 hours to reset their energy matrix – or their atoms will break apart. Eric adopts the codename “Quantum” to find his father’s killer. Woody wants avenge his father’s death too, but he’ll stick with Woody. Can they solve the mystery without strangling each other – or destroying the world?
