Quantum and Woody return in a brand new ongoing series from writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Kano.
Eric and Woody Henderson aka Quantum and Woody found themselves trapped in a scientific lab that granted them amazing super-powers. However, with their superpowers they must also “klang” their wristbands together every 24 hours or disappear into nothingness. However, their superhero-ing has hit a snag. The two are not on speaking terms. To add on, Eric discovered who Woody’s birth father really is and where he’s been hiding.
Daniel Kibblesmith spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming series:
So, since we’ve seen Quantum and Woody last, they’ve become as estranged as you can be when you’re bound on the molecular level. They’re not on speaking terms – Woody shows up every morning, KLANGS, and drives off. But the crazy thing, at least for readers who know the characters, is that the fight that broke up Quantum and Woody was actually Eric’s fault. He knew Woody’s birth father was still alive, and kept it from him. So, we’re all going to find out why, and the consequences of that brotherly betrayal.
Along with this wild first look, Valiant will also be offering Extreme Ultra-Foil Variants for the first 12 issues in the series. These variants will be done by artist Geoff Shaw and come embossed and enhanced with authentic comics foil from the ’90s!
The Extreme Ultra-Foil Variants will be available at standard cover price and will not have a minimum order qualification for retailers.
Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani explains:
When we say that we’re utilizing actual comics foil from the 1990s, we mean actual comics foil from the 1990s. In anticipation of Quantum and Woody’s return, we scoured the earth in the search of the rarest, most obscure, most arcane comics printing practices ever produced – only to find a true ‘holy grail of holofoil’ in the wilds of Canada that had gone virtually untouched for the better part of two decades. Over the next year, we’re going to be digging deep into those lost archives and combining numerous elements – some new, some old, some reclaimed from the some of the most prominent covers of the 90s – to create what we think are some of the most dynamic, eye-catching, and artistic uses of cover enhancements in the modern era. This line is partially a tribute, partially an art project, and partially an excuse to outdo the competition with what we believe will be some of the most coveted and sought-after covers of the year – all in celebration of the energizing, heartwarming, and hilarious story being crafted by Daniel Kibblesmith and Kano.
Valiant will also be launching an “EXTREME” Ultra-Foil Chase Variant where each month they will produce a single strictly limited run variant of Geoff Shaw’s extreme ultra-foil artwork. They will also be unveiling a super-chase incentive dubbed Quantum and Woody! (2017) #1 Most Variant Cover Of All Time!
Quantum and Woody #1 will feature covers by Julian Totino Tedesco, Geoff Shaw, Nick Pitarra, and Neal Adams.
Now on to the first look:
