    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Nov 5, 2013

    If all this isn't enough to make you run out and grab this book then I fear there is little hope for you and you truly are doing yourself a disservice by not reading it. Asmus and Garbett have not missed a beat with this book and while most of Valiant's line is full of action and great stories, Quantum and Woody is the most balanced with it's attack. It's simply a great read and a book that deserves a higher profile within the comic book world. It's that good and that much fun! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Nov 7, 2013

    Ming Doyle's artwork is stunning, never missing a moment to create a visual gag or facial expression to enhance the comedic style that writer James Asmus sets for the book. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Nov 6, 2013

    Quantum and Woody continues to be brilliantly absurd, never grating on the reader. This issue continues the success of the previous arc and does a great job of providing humorous repercussions while setting up another story. There are minor problems in both story and art but neither deter the enjoyment of the book. It's one of my favorite Valiant titles and I'm anxiously awaiting the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Nov 6, 2013

    The last two pages sum up everything that is so much fun about this titled. Expectations are clearly illustrated from the beginning of the title, and then something strange happens and causing many scene too becomes hysterically funny. Doyle and Asmus make combine to create a incredibly powerful creative force. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Nov 6, 2013

    Quantum and Woody #5 plays on that relationship you see everyday from two people who live together under circumstances out of their control. Something that for the most part goes without fail, and having James Asmus' great execution helps. Overall this issue leaves you feeling like you had just watched the beginning of a new sitcom. That's more than reason enough to read this book aside from the fact that Ming Doyle is now on art. It looks better than before in terms of both quality and detail. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Sam Burgess Nov 6, 2013

    Overall i think yet again Asmus has written another fantastic comic to add to this series. I love the laughs and i love the seriousness, the two different tones are balanced superbly together. Doyle brings in a different style of art which fits the feel of the book greatly. I'm heavily looking forward to the next issue, especially to get a better look at this new character. As the cover suggests this issue and this series as a whole is "must read", go out there and buy it folks. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 6, 2013

    This book is yet another example of how Valiant has something for everyone. Character-driven? HARBINGER. Horror? SHADOWMAN. Action? BLOODSHOT. Unlimited laughs and fun? Well, you'll want to check out this issue of QUANTUM & WOODY. Seriously, you've earned a good time, so go buy this book and enjoy some much deserved levity. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Nov 6, 2013

    Quantum and Woody #5 is a new yet comfortable step in this fantastic Valiant series. It still enjoys its uniquely comedic voice and now boasts an artistic direction that plays well within the book's antithetical nature. Again, I admit that I was worried that this new creative team wouldn't match that which made it one of my favorite books of the moment, but I'll be damned if I've never been so happy to have been so wrong.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Nov 7, 2013

    Ming Doyle takes over for Tom Fowler in this issue, and there's a noticeable dip in quality. Doyle is a fine artist, and she excels when it comes to character expressions. This issue is a talky one, so for the most part it's good, but when there is action stuff starts to look a little off. The character's anatomy and posture seems strange. It's not bad, but there is unnoticeably "off" quality about it. Still, she nails those expressions so damn well, the jokes really land home, which is what this particular issue is all about.
