    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Aug 6, 2013

    Quantum & Woody is a must-read and a model for what comics can be. It's entertainment at it's fullest. Comedy, action and heart don't always make great bedfellows but in Quantum & Woody it's a match made in heaven. This is another jewel in Valiant's crown with a creative team that's more than up for the task. If you only read one new book this year, this should be it. Read Full Review

    Issue two just feels bigger and better. Between Asmus's writing getting me to care and laugh so much and the perfect pairing of Fowler's delightful art with Bellaires big colors, this comic has balls. It's a 10. everything's done right here and we haven't even gotten to the goat. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Aug 7, 2013

    This comic is so much fun. Reading this comic is like ordering a pizza from your favorite place only to discover they gave you an extra side of cheesy bread. James Asmus brilliantly balances action, mystery and humor in this issue. Having the main characters basically be complete opposites sets the stage for anything to happen. You might not want someone like Woody in your life but you're going to love reading him in this comic. Everyone needs more Quantum and Woody in their lives. And for fans of urination, there is another pee reference! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Aug 7, 2013

    I was never a fan previously of Quantum and Woody (mostly because I wasn't aware of it at the time), and while it does inspire me to go back and check out some back issues of the original, this will inevitably become MY Quantum and Woody. And you know what? I'm okay with that. Very okay. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Aug 7, 2013

    Tom Fowler, guys. Tom Fowler. The man can draw, oh my, my. His character work is some of the best in the biz. Aside from drawing the fantastic expressive lead characters (who are naked for like 50% of the issue) he also gets to populate the world with some insanely grotesque humans. The little man at the end is amazing, riding in a cybernetic wheelchair and promising to dump his pee on those who oppose him. It's so wonderfully offensive and beautifully bizarre. Nobody is making superhero books like this, which is exactly why you should be paying attention to Valiant Comics. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Andrew Lamb Aug 6, 2013

    Valiant–thankfully–took a risk on bringing back a relatively short lived series from the late 90s. Light and fun, I hope this time Quantum and Woody is here to stay. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Aug 6, 2013

    In closing Quantum And Woody is a celebration of people who cannot seem to work together. These are two people destined for mediocrity, yet they still seem to believe in themselves. An impending doom is felt upon almost every page of the series. This updated idea seems to be one of the best books that Valiant is publishing. For a marriage of great art and writing look no further than this title. Sticking around to watch writer James Asmus and artist Tom Fowler continue to tell the story between the two main characters will be worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Read Comic Books - Connor Relyea Aug 8, 2013

    Quantum & Woody has maintained the reputation it set for itself during its last issue. This book even has the potential to surpass what it's doing now and go further with its mystery, action and comedy. With clean writing and great art, the sky is the limit. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Mike Prezzato Aug 8, 2013

    While necessary, some of the aspects of the origin story and powers just sort of come off like background noise to me, probably because we're all used to the typical super hero set up.That said, the big saving grace here is the wonderful interaction between Quantum and Woody, how their disparate personalities clash, especially in the midst of a fight.Great start to a new serious from the highly respected new line of Valiant books. Oh, and the end gets pretty weird, so I expect a killer third issue! Read Full Review
