The most demanded return in comics is finally here! The original Quantum and Woody are back! Legendary creators Christopher Priest and M.D. Bright return to one of the most acclaimed series of the modern era for an all-new mini-series event!

Whatever happened to the world's worst superhero team? Twenty years past their prime, the unlikely crime-fighting duo known as Quantum and Woody (not a couple) have long since parted ways...until a middle-aged Quantum suddenly reappears with a brand-new teenage partner. Now Woody is out to break up the all-new, all-different Quantum and Woody and put an end to Quantum's recklessness...just as Quantum takes on a life-or-death personal mission for national security. Can these former friends set aside their differences...and their age...and their numerous health difficulties...to join forces one last time without driving each other crazy?

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 14, 2014

    Q2: The Return of Quantum and Woody is yet another amazing feather in Valiant's cap, with the return of Priest and Bright to this fun world being something that old fans will love, and new fans should embrace. It also takes things in a new direction, with the fresh take being very intriguing. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    In my view, we've now got the best of Both worlds. If the comics continue like this, the more Quantum and Woody, the better. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Alexander Handziuk Oct 16, 2014

    Q2:The Return Of Quantum and Woody is a fun, 90's style book that delivers on its promise of classic Quantum and Woody action with a spin. It solidly continues the recent trend of excellence we've come to expect for Valiant while also going in its own very different direction. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Matt Deery Oct 14, 2014

    Q2: The Return of Quantum of Woody is quite simply a really fun book; this first issue sets up the miniseries perfectly, yet manages to provide plenty of gags along the way. It will be fun to see this series progress and if you are looking for something a little fun to read this Wednesday I would highly recommend you check this book out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Oct 15, 2014

    "Q2" is a return-to-form for one of the most underrated titles of the '90s. Priest leaves readers with a cliffhanger and Bright gives just enough of a peek in the final panel to make the reader want to pick up the next issue to see what happens next. This is a nostalgia trip that sneaks in a great story. Anyone worried about this team returning to their old roost and not matching up to their original work need not worry. Quantum and Woody are back and it feels like they never left. Read Full Review

    Q2: The Return of Quantum and Woody #1 is a solid start to the new series combining humor, action, and an intriguing story to create a refreshing twist for crime fighting duos. A lot of the humor is tongue-in-cheek or crude so it can be hit and miss or might not be another's cup of tea. However, the character development and entertaining series of events has me looking forward to seeing what unfolds next for the old and new crime fighting duos. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Oct 17, 2014

    All in all Q2: The Return of Quantum and Woody #1 is off at a good start. If you liked Quantum and Woody from either the modern or the classic I suggest taking a look at it to see if your interested. The stuff I complained so far might change depending on where the creators go with the story. So here's hoping for more explanations and more excitement from the worst superhero team Quantum and Woody. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Luke Anderson Oct 21, 2014

    Though a slow build-up in plot in this the first issue, one still feels that with this book, Valiant Comics can only continue to build their reputation for the wildest and most imaginative cape-comics spectacles available on the stands. Image, Dark Horse, IDW, Dynamite et al, and the big 2 should all take note. Make mine Valiant. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Lauren Gallo Oct 24, 2014

    That all being said, the art is good and consistent, and I do actually want to know more about this story, if anything to figure out who is who and what the deal is. I feel like the Steinback conversation at the start will have some meaning on this series, and how far one will go for their best friend, because its placement in this issue seemed almost obvious in terms of allegory.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 14, 2014

    All in all, Q2: The Return Of Quantum and Woody #1 has a lot going for it, telling a story in three different time-frames, adding to the history and making a meta-statement on comic-book time, even if there are inconsistencies in the overall art quality Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Oct 15, 2014

    Like I said, maybe Q2 will appeal to old fans of the series, if for nothing other than a shot of nostalgia. Unfortunately, it's just not for me, because I've already been spoiled by something better. See you when my Quantum and Woody comes back. Until then, I'll be over with The Delinquents.

    Though it is enjoyable, the bar was set pretty high with James Asmus's new take on the characters, so the classic Q&W will need to step up their game to compete. Other than getting a little messy at times, the art is decent; it's the story that struggles at clarity. Some of the lines of dialog are difficult to interpret and certain things aren't explained clearly, like why this tank thing switched to a truck and back again. Hopefully these issues will smooth out so we can just concentrate on having fun.
