Beginning today, the world’s worst super-hero team are hitting the interwebs with everything they’ve got!
Before “Quantum and Woody #1” comes careening into comic shops everywhere on July 10th, Valiant is teaming up with the authoritative voice in gaming and entertainment for IGN Presents Quantum and Woody Weekly – an exclusive, six-part webcomic by Quantum and Woody’s own James Asmus (Thief of Thieves, Gambit, The End Times of Bram & Ben) and Eisner Award-winning artist Ty Templeton (Ultimate Spider-Man Adventures, Ty Templeton’s Art Land)!
“Valiant has delivered nothing but quality since they launched last summer, so I’m proud and honored to partner with them to debut Quantum and Woody Weekly exclusively on IGN,” said IGN Senior Editor Joey Esposito. “We’re excited to help Valiant’s expansion into web comics, as well as explore IGN Comics as a platform for original comic book content. Plus, you know, goats!”
“We have a seriously cool new series percolating with Quantum and Woody, but before it kicks off in July, our friends at IGN were kind (and crazy) enough to let James Asmus and Ty Templeton bring the hilarity of the world’s worst superhero team to their readers on a weekly basis,” said Quantum and Woody Editor Jody LeHeup. “James and Ty have done their darnedest to deliver some special stuff for old fans of Q&W and new readers alike, so rejoice y’all – Quantum and Woody are back a bit early and in a whole new way.”
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 zeitgeist-shredding exploitation stunt comic you demanded is here at last. (And, yes, there will be a goat too. Eventually.)
Now, in the lead-up to Quantum and Woody’s milestone first issue this July, get in on the ground floor of the adventures of the Valiant Universe’s ineptly aspiring heroes with a new installment of IGN Presents Quantum and Woody Weekly every Wednesday! What are the origins of Woody and Eric’s witty repartee? Who looks better in blue? And what exactly is the deal with that goat anyway?
Find out the answers to none of these pressing questions and more each week – only at IGN! Then the misguided action-adventure blowout of the summer continues on July 10 in “Quantum and Woody #1”- the FIRST ISSUE of Valiant’s next ongoing monthly series by James Asmus and Tom Fowler, and 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 by Andrew Robinson, and an interactive QR Voice Variant by Tom Fowler (with real talking goat action)!
