) are bringing Valiant’s first full-on superhero team back to the Valiant Universe with an all-new ongoing series beginning on

July 10th


Quantum and Woody #1



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 action-packed, zeitgeist-shredding exploitation  stunt comic you demanded is here at last. 

(And, yes, there will be a goat too. Eventually.)

“Quantum and Woody are one of the most  beloved superhero duos in comics. There’s a rich history to draw on here  and we have some very exciting things on deck for Quantum and Woody in  2013 and beyond,” said Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons.

“Since the day X-O Manowar #1 hit shelves,  everywhere we’ve turned, fans have been demanding that Quantum and Woody  step back into the spotlight,” said Quantum and Woody Editor Jody  LeHeup. “James, Tom and Jordie are delivering a smart, heart-filled take  on the team that will be central to the new Valiant Universe, and one  that honors the spirit and bravado of what came before.”


Launched by Christopher Priest and M.D.  Bright for Acclaim Entertainment’s rebooted Valiant Universe in 1997,  Quantum and Woody became one of the most beloved independent superhero  titles of the decade, spawning a rabid and loyal following that endures  to this day. Most recently, Valiant Entertainment re-issued the entirety  of the original series for the first time digitally

“In all of comics, there’s no other book that  mixed style and substance quite like Quantum and Woody. I was willing  to literally kill someone for the chance to write the relaunch for the  new Valiant Universe. I might have. Those first days after I got the  call are a blur. But Quantum and Woody isn’t (just) a superhero  book – it’s action-comedy, it’s family drama, it’s a boys-meet-goat tale  that tugs at the heartstrings,” said writer James Asmus.

On July 10th, the Valiant Universe’s most  infamous duo enter the fray with writer James Asmus, artist Tom Fowler  and colorist Jordie Bellaire in
