    Honestly, you guys, I don't know if I should continue writing reviews for Quantum and Woody. I feel like every time I write one, it comes across like I'm a huge mark for the series … which I totally am, let's be clear. But I don't know what more I can say. Quantum and Woody is quite simply The Shit, and is the most fun, and honestly, the most skill you will see in anything superhero-related. Yes, most get it wrong. But this? This is how you do superhero comic books right. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a great series for people who don't mind a comic that doesn't take itself too seriously and can go with the flow on certain elements that, while they work in the context of the story, are clearly injected for humorous purposes. I would recommend grabbing the collected edition of the 1st volume of this series and giving it a try. You'll love it (unless you don't)! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper and Brandon Burpee Apr 4, 2014

    This is a book that has had marvelous art so far, and Kano kind of feels like a mix of Fowler and Doyle, the two who preceded him. It's really fantastic work Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Apr 5, 2014

    Yes, this book is completely ridiculous, but it is genuinely one of the funniest books that I at least am reading right now. Im not going to say this is the best issue of the series (come on, there was a whole arc revolving around anti-government hillbilly gun nuts), but it is a very good and intriguing one. And as the start of an all-new arc!, its an excellent place to join the insanity. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Apr 1, 2014

    With a more decompressed story that should hook readers in with ease, Quantum And Woody #9 ushers in an exciting new direction for the comic. Kano’s artwork fits in nicely, with big bold facial expressions, dynamic page layouts, and a great variety of sharp lines. Asmus and Kano work together very well, as it is clear they are both trying to craft a truly great book. The new penciller and direction should excite fans of the title that are seeking a different variety of superheroics. Read Full Review

    Herotaku - Jamal Melancon Mar 31, 2014

    The presentation of Quantum And Woody #9 is definitely heightened by Kano's refreshing pencils. Combined with the awesome jump-on point opportunity, this issue really does feel like the start of a new beginning. Hopefully this new beginning will leave the stale jokes and repetitive coincidence trope behind next time. Read Full Review
