Quantum & Woody Release Party

Posted by

Sean is joined by Ed Greenberg at Collector’s Paradise in Pasadena to host an OTV episode recorded live at the Quantum & Woody Release party!

In attendence are James Asmus (writer of Quantum and Woody), Atom! Freeman (Valiant Sales Manager), and Dinesh Shamdasani (Valiant CEO and CCO). In between James signing comics for the fans that came out for the event, we speak to him and the Valiant Comics guys about the launch of Quantum & Woody, the first issue that just hit stands last week, and what to expect coming up in future issues of the series.

We also get store manager Andy on the show to talk about retailing Valiant comics, with some surprising sales information about the Valiant titles

In addition, we talk about how Quantum & Woody fit in to the overall Valiant Universe, and further, hear some information about what is coming up with Valiant, with some exclusive information about Unity, which is coming later this year!

Mona the Goat is also in attendence at this event, and we get a very special announcement about her.
