    Overall, the return of Priest and Bright brought a lot of the same magic that made "Quantum & Woody" so great in the 90s but lost momentum in the home stretch. The ending hit fast and wrapped up quickly, which felt slightly unsatisfying, though it's possible this is merely the start of a much bigger story. That the story exists at all and is successful on any level is a huge accomplishment. This series was a much beloved cult classic and getting a sequel so many years later speaks to the fan base and also Valiant's understanding of their audience and intellectual property. If this is the last time the duo ride off together, then it's a thrill that they finally do so on their own terms. Read Full Review

    The bottom line, for me, is that the book stands on the shoulders of greatness. I know enough about Quantum and Woody to give this one a break. It looks like it's the end of a major arc with a new arc to follow. The new arc hints at a more classic Q&W feel over what has, apparently, been going on so far. The franchise lifts the score one point for me because I know the good it can do and I feel like I can give it some leeway because of that. I can forgive the off pacing and the tone confusion because I know that's an anomaly and there are some redeeming points, even if they are very small. If you want to see what all the Quantum and Woody hype is about then I suggest checking out the next issue where it seems they'll be up to their old antics again and maybe just skip the first 5.

    With better dialog this actually could have been a good series, if only it were executed in a less convoluted and more comprehensible way.
