JAMES ASMUS and TOM FOWLER Bring on QUANTUM AND WOODY #1 in July!

 

On July 10th, a new era begins for the world’s worst superhero team in Quantum and Woody #1!
 
Valiant is proud to announce that award-winning writer James Asmus (Gambit, Thief of Thieves, Captain America & Bucky) and acclaimed artist Tom Fowler (Venom, Hulk: Season One) are bringing Valiant’s first full-on superhero team back to the Valiant Universe with an all-new ongoing series beginning on July 10th in Quantum and Woody #1!
 
Once upon a time, Eric and Woody Henderson
were inseparable. Adopted brothers. Best friends. Brilliant minds. Years
later, they are estranged siblings, petty rivals, and washed-up
failures. But when their father’s murder leads them into the throes of a
life-altering scientific accident, Eric and Woody will find themselves
with a whole new purpose – and a perfectly legitimate reason to wear
costumes and fight crime. Go big or go home, folks! Quantum and Woody
are coming! And the action-packed, zeitgeist-shredding exploitation
stunt comic you demanded is here at last. 
 
(And, yes, there will be a goat too. Eventually.)
 
“Quantum and Woody are one of the most
beloved superhero duos in comics. There’s a rich history to draw on here
and we have some very exciting things on deck for Quantum and Woody in
2013 and beyond,” said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons.
 
“Since the day X-O Manowar #1 hit shelves,
everywhere we’ve turned, fans have been demanding that Quantum and Woody
step back into the spotlight,” said Quantum and Woody Editor Jody
LeHeup. “James, Tom and Jordie are delivering a smart, heart-filled take
on the team that will be central to the new Valiant Universe, and one
that honors the spirit and bravado of what came before.”
 
Launched by Christopher Priest and M.D.
Bright for Acclaim Entertainment’s rebooted Valiant Universe in 1997,
Quantum and Woody became one of the most beloved independent superhero
titles of the decade, spawning a rabid and loyal following that endures
to this day. Most recently, Valiant Entertainment re-issued the entirety
of the original series for the first time digitally via comiXology.

“In all of comics, there’s no other book that
mixed style and substance quite like Quantum and Woody. I was willing
to literally kill someone for the chance to write the relaunch for the
new Valiant Universe. I might have. Those first days after I got the
call are a blur. But Quantum and Woody isn’t (just) a superhero
book – it’s action-comedy, it’s family drama, it’s a boys-meet-goat tale
that tugs at the heartstrings,” said writer James Asmus.

 
On July 10th, the Valiant Universe’s most
infamous duo enter the fray with writer James Asmus, artist Tom Fowler
and colorist Jordie Bellaire in Quantum and Woody #1 – featuring a standard cover by Ryan Sook, a Pullbox Exclusive Variant by Marcos Martin for customers who pre-order with the their local retailer, an incentive variant by Andrew Robinson, and an interactive QR Voice Variant by Tom Fowler (with real talking goat action)!
