Don’t miss out on reading a special free webcomic that Valiant have put up to introduce us to their upcoming Quantum and Woody series in December. Following the absurdities the comic is known for, the publisher have given it a fractional zero issue numbering at #0.0001½ of an issue. And also, it’s drawn by the great Joe Eisma, whose work you can see on a number of Archie titles, Faith, and more.
Valiant explain the comic thus:
…super-powered brothers Eric and Woody Henderson lead a personally guided overview of the 20-year history of the world’s worst superhero team – featuring guest (re)appearances by original series creators Christopher Priest and M.D. Bright, alongside James Asmus, Tom Fowler, and a glossy 8×11” headshot of none other than Daniel Kibblesmith himself. (In case anyone asks, we have permission!)
The new series follows on December 20th in shops, written by Daniel Kibblesmith and drawn by Kano.
Sometimes…you embrace your destiny. And sometimes…you and your trouble-making adopted brother find yourselves trapped in a scientific lab explosion that grants you $@&%ing awesome super-powers. As a result of their accident, Eric and Woody Henderson – aka Quantum and Woody – must “klang” their wristbands together every 24 hours or both dissipate into nothingness. Which makes superhero-ing pretty awkward when you’re not on speaking terms at the moment. See, Eric has been keeping a pretty big secret: He knows who Woody’s birth father really is…and where he’s been hiding all these years.
Quantum and Woody’s first issue features covers by Julian Totino Tedesco (Hawkeye), Geoff Shaw (God Country), Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects), Neal Adams (Green Lantern/Green Arrow), and Clayton Henry (Harbinger Wars) and a variant cover with “every single gimmick known to man”.
