    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Dec 3, 2013

    Quantum & Woody is funny but full of fun in other ways, charming with all the heart, and simply put, a great witty comic full of energy and excitement. There's plenty to love here and it hits all the right notes for a action comedy superhero book. There aren't many like Quantum & Woody on the store shelves and you most certainly shouldn't pass this book up. Read Full Review

    Quantum and Woody is as strong as it has ever been. The team of Doyle and Asmus have been bringing some really funny insight to the two heroes as they descend into madness. With a narrower and more scaled back plot, this is one of the strongest installments of the series. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Dec 2, 2013

    Quantum and Woody #6 makes for a fun filled read proving that it is one of Valiants most successful titles at the moment. Although characters are placed in clich situations, they make the old seem fresh through the use of personality, dialogue and sheer recklessness. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Dec 6, 2013

    So far this comic is a must read. You don't need to read the previous issue to get what's going on. In fact this seems like a better jumping on point then the last issue. If you like super heroes with adult humour (some humour you shouldn't repeat to anyone ) then your going to have a fun time reading this comic. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Patrick McAleer Dec 11, 2013

    Writer James Asmus could not pack more witty banter or snappy one-liners into this issue if he tried. Virtually every panel will raise a smile. Quantum's weary resignation to Woody's inevitable slagging and idiotic suggestions, coupled with the latter's overactive sex-drive all serve to fill each page with at least a couple of outright funny moments. That's a lot of bang (or laugh) for your buck.The pencils by Ming Doyle are good, particularly in the close up facial expressions. However it's in the more kinetic action sequences that earlier artist in the series, Tom Fowler has the edge.Colours by the ever excellent Jordie Bellaire add a visceral sense of fun to the whole affair.Overall Quantum And Woody #6 ensures the series is safe on the pull-list as it is not only hilarious but is also endearingly charming (which is weird to say for a book that is often very crude and rude) and it continues to be in a truly funny little niche of it's own in the comic book world.

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Dec 6, 2013

    This comic never forgets to bring the fun, and in this issue, we start making some fantastic connections with the rest of the Valiant universe as mention of the Sect Civil War pops up here. It's all coming together, and I just dig it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 4, 2013

    There's a reason Quantum and Woody are called the world's worst superhero team. James Asmus makes everything go badly in a wonderful way. Ming Doyle's art and Jordie Bellaire's colors add a great feel to the story and it's great to see a creative team flow together so nicely. Asmus is showing us you never really know what's going to happen next. There's so much humor and awkwardness in this issue, you'll want to read it again and again. Read Full Review

    Herotaku - Michael A. Espinoza Dec 4, 2013

    Great issue minus this and that, worth picking up if you are a collector and heavily invested in the story line but if you are looking for laughs like in previous issues, you may be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - James McQueen Dec 3, 2013

    The patter between the ill matched foster brothers as they squabble is a delight. I just hope they somehow manage to keep it together long enough to KLANG on each others wristband every 24 hours they die if they dont and there is too much comedy at stake. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Dec 4, 2013

    Don't listen to the nay-saying sorcerers and their pessimistic ilk; unlike magic, great superhero comic books do exist. You just have to expand your preconceived notions and know where to look. Quantum and Woody may not be what you expect, but it just might be the riotously quick-witted, well-written atypical series you need to relight your superhero fire, and I personally believe it to be the jewel in Valiant's hero-hewn crown.

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Dec 5, 2013

    Ming Doyle excels at the closeup, character driven situations. The opening scene looks fantastic; you can see how happy Quantum is and just how much it confuses Woody. If this were the whole comic, the score for this issue would be a lot higher. Trouble is, the action scenes still look a little rough, with characters awkwardly staged and lacking any sense of movement. Sometimes it's funny, other times it just looks off. Doyle is good, no doubt, but you can't help but notice that superheroes might not be her bag. Read Full Review
