    Comic Bastards - Daniel Vlasaty Dec 20, 2017

    Like I said before, Valiant is kind of killing it right now. This new revamp or whatever you want to call it is really doing a great job of telling fun and interesting stories, with great creative teams. I think one thing that always turned me off a bit about Valiant was that everything seemed to revolve around their small stable of characters. I don't know why that bothered me. It's literally the same thing with Marvel or DC. Maybe it's just because I didn't give any of these characters a chance. Quantum and Woody might have seemed kind of annoying to me before, but with this new series, I am really enjoying them. Kibblesmith and Kano are a great team, and I look forward to following them along for this ride. Read Full Review

    I've loved these characters since I first read them and honestly this was one of the top three books I was looking forward to heading into 2018, and it did not disappoint! The flashback on page four alone may indeed bring you back to your own childhood. Quantum & Woody what a pair of reluctant heroes these adopted brothers are. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Connor Stephens Dec 21, 2017

    Point is, don't call it a Threeboot because Kibblesmith and Kano have crafted a hilarious and striking first issue, packed with perfect characterisation and a firm understanding of just what makes Quantum and Woody work. It feels like the brothers never left at all, and that theyre simply back with a new shiny coat of paint. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Jan 3, 2018

    Kibblesmith creates a great jumping on point for readers, as Kano creates such fluid and yet frantic scenes that make the book pop. To me, since the relaunch, I have always seen Quantum and Woody as the two main characters to the show Psych. Lighthearted, yet quarrelsome, I would actually pose it to Valiant to snag those actors for the inevitable Quantum and Woody TV series or movie, as the book embodies that buddy comradery to the letter. Valiant has launched another fantastic series here, one where I am along for the ride. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Dec 21, 2017

    Gimmick covers aside, the content of the comic itself does more than enough to pull you in for the second (and possibly third) issue on its own merits. A successful return for the worlds worst superhero team, and one that doesn't require any familiarity with the two. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 20, 2017

    Quantum & Woody #1 was fun and the right opportunity to get to know these characters all over again. To fall in love with them all over again as well when there's so much unfortunate about the way they live their lives. To want more out of life but feel anchored down by one another and the need to meet every 24 hours to survive. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Dec 20, 2017

    Quantum and Woody #1 is beginning a process of exploring the complexities of family life, from adoption and brotherhood to how children form relationships with their parents. There are so many feelings driving the ship of the story and seeing them unfold looks to be both revealing and evocative. The structure of the comic lends to some issues with the story, but there is also something in this first issue that provides ample threads to explore in subsequent installments. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 19, 2017

    Zigging where you might expect it to zag, there's tons of potential to Quantum and Woody " it remains to be seen if this book's chaotic spirit can keep readers invested, or if the world's worst superheroes wind up being at the receiving end of their own punchline. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 27, 2017

    Quantum and Woody #1 brings the series to a great start with a good plot, a good amount of humor, and great artwork. It is a solid read, and I can easily recommend it despite the slow middle section and the not-insignificant amount of bad jokes. Give it a try. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 21, 2017

    This Quantum & Woody relaunch breaks Valiant's 2017 trend by not trying particularly hard to cater itself toward newcomers. It's very much about exploring the deteriorating state of the relationship between these two superhero brothers. Read Full Review

    Woody continues to play the Wise Guy role is a jokester who answers the, wisecracks, and wackiness who fancies himself to be a social media star, only to find himself lonelier than before. Look Woody is of course setting up do something incredibly stupid, but what Daniel Kibblesmith and Artist Kano have managed to do in issue #1 already is lay down the groundwork that you can feel sympathetic towards his stupidity and you kinda of want to see if it works out for him.
