This was such a fun story arc to read. We got to really explore a dynamic of superherodom that is seldom done. What if the team was just two brothers and their dad? What if they were step brothers? What if they weren’t the same color? What if the dad was a pregnant super goat? These are the questions that need to be asked in today’s comic book world!

Things are not looking great for Batman. The city is infected with a Joker virus, the Joker may or may not be unkillable, and now the only people he has left to go to for help is the Court of Owls. Things couldn’t possibly go bad, right?
As of late, Valiant has made it a practice to take their already established characters and put them in short four or five issue mini-series instead of giving them the full ongoing treatment. When it does pain me that I can’t read awesome books like Archer and Armstrong or Quantum and Woody every month, it does make sense from an editorial standpoint since this allows Valiant to shine the spotlight on more characters. This also means that when we do get a mini of our favorite already established character then you know that mini should have a story in it that is worth telling, and I’m pretty sure that Quantum and Woody Must Die! is one such story.

Multiple Harvey Award nominee James Asmus (Quantum and Woody, The Delinquents) and Eisner Award-winning artist Steve Lieber (Superior Foes of Spider-Man) are here to bring the most talked-about, most award-not-winning-est heroes in comics to a whole new high! Unfortunately, there are a bunch of people that would like to kill them up there.
They came. They saw. They pissed off a whole lotta folks. And now a team of mystery vigilantes has singled out the world’s worst superhero team for complete and utter destruction. Their first target: their minds! But who are these all-new enemies? Are Quantum and Woody hitting it off with a sexy duo of cat burglars? And, dear god, what have they done to the goat? Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Sex Criminals isn’t the only comic that can quote Queen, comics fans – here come Quantum and Woody! (Or so they think! [Trippy, right?!]) 32 pgs. | T+
