Valiant Announces Quantum & Woody

Valiant returns to the World's Worst Superhero Team this July!



Source: Press Release

As teases last week, our friends at Valiant are going to be bringing back fan-favorite buddy-comedy book Quantum & Woody, with the creative team of James Asmus and Tom Fowler. 

While many fans are probably wishing for a Quantum & Woody book that features creators Christopher Priest and MD Bright, Asmus and Fowler make for an intriguing team. Asmus has already displayed a knack for deep, thoughtful storytelling that mixes in humor and ideas in equal measure, and Fowler is one of the most underappreciated artists in comics right now. This looks like it could be a real winner for The Flyin' V. We're down. 

Anyway, read the press release below and see a couple of pages from the upcoming revival. 

 

JAMES ASMUS and TOM FOWLER Bring on QUANTUM AND WOODY #1 in July!
 

On July 10th, a new era begins for the world's worst superhero team in Quantum and Woody #1!
 
Valiant is proud to announce that award-winning writer James Asmus (Gambit, Thief of Thieves, Captain America & Bucky) and acclaimed artist Tom Fowler (Venom, Hulk: Season One) are bringing Valiant's first full-on superhero team back to the Valiant Universe with an all-new ongoing series beginning on July 10th in Quantum and Woody #1!
 
Once upon a time, Eric and Woody Henderson were inseparable. Adopted brothers. Best friends. Brilliant minds. Years later, they are estranged siblings, petty rivals, and washed-up failures. But when their father’s murder leads them into the throes of a life-altering scientific accident, Eric and Woody will find themselves with a whole new purpose – and a perfectly legitimate reason to wear costumes and fight crime. Go big or go home, folks! Quantum and Woody are coming! And the action-packed, zeitgeist-shredding exploitation stunt comic you demanded is here at last. 
 
(And, yes, there will be a goat too. Eventually.)
 
"Quantum and Woody are one of the most beloved superhero duos in comics. There's a rich history to draw on here and we have some very exciting things on deck for Quantum and Woody in 2013 and beyond," said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons.
 
"Since the day X-O Manowar #1 hit shelves, everywhere we've turned, fans have been demanding that Quantum and Woody step back into the spotlight," said Quantum and Woody Editor Jody LeHeup. "James, Tom and Jordie are delivering a smart, heart-filled take on the team that will be central to the new Valiant Universe, and one that honors the spirit and bravado of what came before."
 
Launched by Christopher Priest and M.D. Bright for Acclaim Entertainment's rebooted Valiant Universe in 1997, Quantum and Woody became one of the most beloved independent superhero titles of the decade, spawning a rabid and loyal following that endures to this day. Most recently, Valiant Entertainment re-issued the entirety of the original series for the first time digitally via comiXology

"In all of comics, there's no other book that mixed style and substance quite like Quantum and Woody. I was willing to literally kill someone for the chance to write the relaunch for the new Valiant Universe. I might have. Those first days after I got the call are a blur. But Quantum and Woody isn't (just) a superhero book – it's action-comedy, it's family drama, it's a boys-meet-goat tale that tugs at the heartstrings," said writer James Asmus.
 
On July 10th, the Valiant Universe's most infamous duo enter the fray with writer James Asmus, artist Tom Fowler and colorist Jordie Bellaire in Quantum and Woody #1 – featuring a standard cover by Ryan Sook, a Pullbox Exclusive Variant by Marcos Martin for customers who pre-order with the their local retailer, an incentive variant byAndrew Robinson, and an interactive QR Voice Variant by Tom Fowler (with real talking goat action)!

I've been picking up the Valiant stuff in trades, but I may actually check out this one in singles.

I love the Martin variant.

QR cover with "Real talking goat action". God I'm going to have to track that down. :lol:

I hope this is being done with the blessing of Priest and Bright. From what I recall they own at least a piece of it.

From the interview at CBR it looks like Priest is working with Valiant on getting those unreleased issues of the original series actually out there.

I just hope the usual comics crusaders don't try and stir up some controversy because Priest is a black guy and he's been replaced by a white guy, you know it's coming.

We have a couple things up in the air with Chris, and we're pulling to circle back and solidify them now that we have the new series up and running in a place we're happy about.

Priest mentioned on his blog that there are a number of unseen issues of "Quantum and Woody" that were never released. Now that Valiant has started to roll out some of the older issues on comiXology and considering this new series has been announced, are there plans to make use of that older, unreleased material?

Shamdasani: You know what, they're really, really great issues. We've all read them in the office and we love them. We've thrown around a number of really cool ideas for them. There are a couple issues as well that are in various stages of production. Let me put it this way -- I mentioned we were talking to Chris about an exciting project, and it's very similar to what we're talking about right now. So yeah, we have big plans for those.

Sadly it wasn't going to have Priest no matter what. He's pretty much quit comics at this point from what I understand. :-(

I wish Quantum would get his cape back as that made him look badass.
