Crisis of the infinite Woody-verse! Tim Siedell (Star Wars: Darth Vader) and Harvey Award-nominees James Asmus (The Delinquents) and Pere Pérez (Archer & Armstrong) launch the world's worst superhero team into an overloaded adventure that only a VALIANT-SIZE 40-page giant could possibly handle!

An asteroid is about to destroy the planet, but with Quantum and Woody at the front line of an international team of heroes, everything's sure to...oh sweet mercy, we're doomed. And that's BEFORE Thomas Edison opens a rip in the space-time continuum and lets in the mirror-image Woody of the alterna-verse!

    This is a great stand-alone issue to dive into, especially if you are new to the world of Quantum and Woody. Valiants return to comics is something the comic world should be thankful for, as now we get more comic goodness from the Worlds Worst Superheroes. I give this issue a NINE out of 10. Go pick it up and enjoy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 3, 2014

    Self-contained, approachable and funny, "Valiant-Sized Quantum and Woody" #1 is such a fun comic book in the mirthful Valiant manner. This encapsulated offering sets up adventures to come for Quantum and Woody, giving readers plenty to get excited about while entertaining them the whole way through. If only every comic were as entertaining and visually compelling. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Alexander Handziuk Dec 4, 2014

    Pere Prez and Brian Level handle the art duties and they although they have different styles, they both fit well with the portion of the book which they draw. Prez draws the first few stories in this issue and his art is clean and crisp, and accentuates the comedy written by Siedall and Asmus. On another note he also draws a great Kim Jung Un. Levels art is visibly less clean and much darker. He draws the part of the book featuring Turkeyman and he draws him like a dark and gritty villain but since he is nothing like most super villains, this dark portrayal accentuates the comedy and really brings this aspect of the book to fever pitch levels.

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Dec 3, 2014

    In the end Valiant-Sized Quantum and Woody #1 was a fun comic to read. There were a lot of good jokes that play on some of the old super hero stories. It leaves it open for more stories to come out of Valiant-Sized Quantum and Woody #1 which I would love to see in the future. For now it's something fans will enjoy while they wait for the next installment of Quantum and Woody's adventure in “Quantum and Woody Must Die”. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven E. Paugh Dec 3, 2014

    Anyone missing books like the recently-cancelled Superior Foes should fill that vacuum with Valiant-Sized Quantum and Woody. It is a deliciously filling morsel for both regular and new fans alike, and a great way to tide yourself over until Quantum and Woody Must Die #1 drops (with mafackin' Steve Lieber art) in the new year.

    All-Comic - Alex Mansfield Dec 3, 2014

    Clocking in at an irreverently generous 40 pages, Valiant-Sized Quantum and Woody #1 is an absolute lark (the herald! Angels sing".sorry). Comprised of three interlocking stories written by Tim Seidell and James Asmus with Pere Prez and Brian Level on art duties, this is a lighthearted adventure that's packed with the required humor and subtle heart that one has come to expect from Quantum and Woody.

    Geekality - Warren Fitzpatrick Dec 3, 2014

    The end result is a solid book worth the price tag, assuming you like to laugh. It has some of the irreverent comedy Q&W made their staple. The artwork is solid. The gags are well-timed. The story isn't touching, unless you count that it touches the funny bone. All in told, a great ride and a joy to read. I'm willing to bet it'd make a great stocking stuffer. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Dec 2, 2014

    At the end of it, I'm also still not precisely sure what 'Valiant-Sized' means " the structuring of the book indicates that it's a pretty decent, regular-sized issue with two additional, tangetially-linked stories stuck on the end. I'm still not wholly sold on the proceedings, but if at any point you've said to yourself 'I should probably be reading Quantum and Woody', this is an absolutely perfect diving-on point. Containing just enough of a primer on the characters for no previous reading to be required, whilst at the same time driving forward with a fascinating, deliciously silly interdimensional disaster-prevention tale and a healthy dose of subversive Christmas cheer to boot, there's more than enough here to justify a return visit come new series 'Quantum and Woody Must Die!' in January. Fun stuff, and certainly worth a look. Read Full Review

    Quantum and Woody are back! Specifically, the James Asmus version that I know and love. The main story and the second back up are both written by Tim Siedell however, and I couldn't tell the difference! He perfectly captured the bromance and stupidity that make Q&W so exceptional. The first backup story, written by James Asmus, is just downright touching, this is the best gift Valiant could have given me for the holidays. Treat yourself to Q&W this Christmas and I guarantee your heart will grow three sizes that day.
