Quantum & Woody’s Goat Is Expecting A Baby Goat And We Can’t Even

by Hannah Means Shannon

It’s very hard to write this article because the excitement of this announcement has the magnitude of leaving me stunned.

The most beloved and bizarre goat in comics has been announced as expecting baby goat offspring. We already knew that the goat was female, but that she also contained, in some strange way, the mind of Quantum and Woody’s late father, as well as possessing some mad superhero skills.

When the new series for Quantum and Woody! dawns this winter, the foster brothers are on the outs and not talking, but it looks from previews like the goat is staying with Eric. For a full interview with series writer Daniel Kibblesmith, check that here. But will the expecting goat bring these brothers back together to fulfill their greater superhero purpose? Here’s hoping.

Issue #3, arriving in February, will bring the blessed event. What powers will the baby goat have?? See why this is such a big deal? This issue also marks the 50th issue of Quantum and Woody to ever appear, so it’s suitable that special guest artist Francis Portela celebrates the event.

Valiant says:

If you add them all up, this would be Quantum and Woody’s 50th issue! What better time to answer the eternal question: “Whatever happened to the Goat, anyway?” At last, the whole saga of Dr. Derek Henderson’s transformation from brilliant physicist and beloved father into a barnyard animal of unimaginable power can finally be told…and all of his secrets revealed, beginning with the long-awaited arrival of the Goat’s mysterious and mystifying offspring!

Will it be man – or beast? Can anything – or anyone – contain the awesome might of the Goat’s supremely powerful spawn? And, most direly, will Quantum and Woody get their deposit back once it has brought ruin and despair to every corner of their week-to-week one bedroom?

Issue #3 will arrive February 21st with covers by Julian Totino Tedesco (Hawkeye), Geoff Shaw (God Country), and Dave Johnson (100 Bullets).
