Well, that’s not a surprise.
If you listened to Episode 110 recorded at the Quantum & Woody release party at Collector’s Paradise, you as much as know that this was a sell out, and would be going back to press.
This issue certainly deserves it too. The first issue of Quantum & Woody managed to introduce two very real, flawed human beings, and got them in to quite the mess.
It picks up on the best of the original, and also feels new and fresh.
(The only problem with the issue is that there is not nearly enough Goat in it. We expect that to change though.)
The second printing gets a great new cover by Emanuela Lupacchino, who has been crushing her art duties on Archer & Armstrong, and now on Bloodshot and the H.A.R.D.Corps.
The more art by Emanuela, the better.
Let’s make this a sell out, so that we can make Quantum & Woody #1 have a number of covers to rival X-O Manowar #1!
Here’s more information from our favorite publisher, the benevolent overlords, the purveyors of precious panels, or whatever you want to call them:
