Source: Quantum & Woody #5
Valiant’s most dysfunctional duo returns this week as James Asmus and Ming Doyle bring us another chapter of Quantum & Woody. Asmus continues with a story as goofy as ever as the two brothers adjust to their new life as the world’s worst superheroes.
Picking up after last issue, Eric & Woody are back at Woody’s apartment with the added company of Vincent Van Goat and clone sixty-nine as they try to figure out how to deal with their new powers. As Eric attempts to return the firearms he stole from his security job, Woody goes apartment hunting with clone 69. At work Eric is nearly caught returning the weapons and is only saved by the fact that his boss is an oblivious old woman. Meanwhile Woody’s apartment hunt is fruitless as he stumbles into a super villain hideout thinking it’s a nightclub. Things also take a turn for Eric during his first patrol as he crashes a hipster party thinking it’s a super villain hideout.
James Asmus continues to write one of the most entertaining duos in comics. The bickering back and forth between Quantum and Woody is hilarious and the matter of fact comments made by clone 69 make every seemingly normal situation they encounter even funnier. Ming Doyle’s art is perfect for the goofy tone of the book. Doyle’s art is very detailed and her characters are bursting with emotion.
Quantum & Woody is one of Valiant’s best titles and this issue serves as perfect example as to why. With this issue kicking off a new story-arc, it’s a perfect jumping on point for new readers.
