    The art in this series by Steve Lieber brings me back to the time when I first started liking comics. Bold lines, subtle nuances drawn in the backgrounds, etc" And the colors by Dave McCaig were just as great as ever. Brilliant, fluid tones that were vibrant and fun to look at. Suicide sloth? Great job guys! I almost dropped my phone over that one! Read Full Review

    "Quantum and Woody" has routinely been a refuge for readers to laugh about things that shouldn't be this funny, but -- with "Quantum and Woody: Must Die" #4 and indeed this entire series -- Asmus and Lieber continue to find new ways to get a laugh (sure, some of the tried-and-true old ways work too) and clearly have fun crafting irreverent adventures that explore the perimeter of what comic books can and should be.

    But overall, this issue was my favorite of the series. Although there was so much going on it was a bit hard to digest, the comedy delivered, the art was fantastic as usual, and as a first-time Quantum and Woody reader I'd definitely consider checking them out again in the near future on their main title.

    All in all Quantum and Woody Must Die! #4 was a bit of a let down. The art could have been better and the conclusion was not something I expected. However it did leave things open for even better storytelling down the line.Thisis great,but as an ending for this story it doesn't all quite click. Read Full Review

    Valiant Central - Martin Ferretti Apr 29, 2015

    Overall, Quantum and Woody Must Die! #4 is a terrific conclusion to what has been a really fun series with terrific character exploration for two characters which are somewhat overlooked by many fans. While no word has been given on when Quantum and Woody will return, I look forward to seeing more of this kind of story for the characters as they become more than cartoon-character versions of superheroes.

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Apr 28, 2015

    Must they die? Meh, whatever. What they do instead is far more interesting, even if it veers a tad sharply from where the prior issues led you to believe. It's as sardonic as ever and injected with heartfelt admissions via richly crafted visuals, but given its structuring will likely be read much smoother as collected work. A plethora of cliffhangers teases at a multitude of mishaps, misunderstandings and misgivings left to explore in another chapter (whatever form that may come in) of the greatest/worst/whatever/poop emoji tandem in the Valiant Universe.

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen May 5, 2015

    The story may have ended upbeing unsatisfying, but Steve Lieber's art stayed consistently top-notch for the entirety of the series. Many of Asmus' gags were dependent on Lieber's visuals, such as the "suicide sloth" or the Quantum's alpha-hero showmanship. It makes for some seriously funny stuff. Even when some of the jokes fall flat, they are elevated by the goofy expressions Lieber gives the books various characters.Quantum & Woody Must Diemay have fallen short of satisfying, but it was not without merit. The laughs alone should keep readers coming back for the next rowdy adventure. Read Full Review

    This "mini-series" reads and functions as the ongoing Quantum & Woody comic would. We got characters and continuity that come before and an ending that absolutely demands to continue. So if you were reading the 2013 Quantum and Woody then you must read this and the Valiant-Sized Q&W as well, you'd be a menace to society if you didn't. So as a mini-series, this doesn't work all that well, but if that is how the comic industry must be played to keep Quantum & Woody going then so be it, I must have my fix!
