    Outright Geekery - Henry Starling Feb 24, 2015

    James Asmus write a story that feels like something straight out of a buddy cop movie. Makes me want to take my shoes off make some popcorn and enjoy the ride. This kind of writing is the reason what makes me an avid comic reader. The art and color team of Steve Lieber and Dave McCraig also had me rolling with the physical slapstick! The way they tell the story just as well as the writing is just brilliant. And the visual nuances made this issue a joy to look at as well as read. Overall, this, as always, was a fun read. Laid back and never took itself seriously. There are not a lot of comics out there that can do this. The buddy cops of the valiant universe. What a fun concept. Read Full Review

    It's insane, it's clever, it's inventive, irreverant, strangely honest, quite well drawn and just plain "Good!". Read Full Review

    So far, it feels like the Super-Human Trauma Coping Group is trying too hard to utterly destroy the World's Worst Super-team. Their sneak attacks are on par with ye old Willy Coyote vs. The Road Runner. Meep Meep indeed. I can't wait to see how they try to obliterate them next month. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 25, 2015

    Similarly, artist Lieber does an excellent job managing the book's roller coaster script, adding a much grounded element to the book's less-than-grounded devices. His gift for physical comedy is again on fine display, particularly in any scene featuring Woody doing anything. Even the lettering leads to some laugh out loud moments, making each panel one to pore over. Quantum and Woody Must Die! is determined to shatter your funny bone, and with Asmus and Lieber on board they just may succeed. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Feb 23, 2015

    Quantum and Woody Must Die! is a study in how to craftily incorporate humor into the superhero genre, without making any of the characters found therein one-dimensional caricatures. If youre already a fan of the characters, everything youd expect is delivered here. If youre unfamiliar, the barrier to entry is practically nil, with the only necessary information succinctly provided in the brief recap found on page one. With all of the setup out of the way, issue #2 provides great payoff to the first issues foundation-laying and provides plenty to look forward to in the series remaining two issues. Do you wish there were more straight comedies to be found in comics? Stop wishing, its right here. A+++ Great seller, reliable shipping, would buy from again. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Warren Fitzpatrick Feb 25, 2015

    With a strong story and nice art pushing some boundaries, this story continues to build toward its final two issues. A few missteps in the humor aside, the overall experience is enjoyable and worth a read. Is it the best Q&W issue ever? Not by a long shot, but it keeps things moving and you might want to own it if issues 3 and 4 pay off. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Feb 25, 2015

    I really thought the comedy aspect of this book was very weak especially since I thought the debut issue was pretty humorous. I didn't laugh or even crack a smile once through this issue. There was even an Ebola reference which at this point is totally irrelevant. Since comedy is a big part of this series, it was really hard for me to enjoy this issue. The art was fantastic like last issue, but that's not enough for me to pull it out of just being an average book. Read Full Review
