Jude Terror here, mopping up some of the news we missed over the weekend like a porn shop clerk after a week of high traffic in the video booth. This is a cool one for longtime fans of Quantum and Woody. Christopher Priest and M.D. Bright are returning to write a five issue miniseries set in the original Acclaim Comics Quantum and Woody continuty titled Q2: The Return of Quantum and Woody. It's set twenty years after the original series. Here's the press release:

PRIEST & M.D. BRIGHT Reunite for New QUANTUM AND WOODY Mini-Series  – Coming in 2014 from VALIANT
 
 
Valiant is proud to announce that Christopher Priest and M.D. Bright, the acclaimed creators of Quantum and Woody, will reunite for Q2: The Return of Quantum and Woody – an all-new, five-issue mini-series bringing the original world's worst superhero team into the 21st century!
 
Set wholly in the original continuity of Priest and Bright's groundbreaking Acclaim Comics series, the new mini – which represents the return of both creators to monthly comics – will pick up in the modern day, launching an older Quantum and Woody into an all-new adventure set 20 years after the events of their original series.
 
“Soon as Doc and I started hashing out the plotline, we got into a huge argument. It was just like old times. Happy to be back on the goat,” said Priest.
 
"It's enormously exciting to have Priest and Doc return to the iconic characters they made famous," said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons. "Over the years, the legend of the original series has only grown, and they're about to unleash a fearless new chapter in the lives of Quantum and Woody."
 
Whatever happened to the world's worst superhero team? Twenty years past their prime, the unlikely crime-fighting duo known as Quantum and Woody have long since parted ways and retired…until a middle-aged Quantum suddenly reappears with a brand-new teenage partner—and his wisecracking ex-best friend gets mad. Now Woody is out to break up the all-new, all-different Quantum and Woody and put an end to Quantum's recklessness and child endangerment…just as Quantum sets out to bring down a shadowy, globe-spanning agency of freelance spies and assassins. As Quantum's plan crumbles right through Woody's fingers, will the former friends set aside their differences…and their age…and their numerous health difficulties…to join forces one last time without driving each other crazy?
 
A veteran writer and editor with more than 35 years experience in the comic book industry, Christopher J. Priest has written nearly every major character in comics, with notable runs on series including Action Comics, Amazing Spider-Man, Black Panther, Captain America, Conan the Barbarian, Deadpool, and many more.
 
M.D. Bright began his career in comics in 1978 and has worked consistently on some of the industry's most popular and enduring titles ever since. One of the all-time definitive artists of Green Lantern, Iron Man, and G.I. Joe, Bright has also contributed to Batman, Captain America, Thor, Wonder Woman and countless others.
