QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of the ALL-NEW and UNTRUSTWORTHY ONGOING SERIES from rising star Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and explosive artist Kano (Daredevil) with covers by astonishing artist Julian Totino Tedesco (Hawkeye)! In wake of X-O MANOWAR (2017) #1, SECRET WEAPONS #1, BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1, and NINJA-K #1, Valiant’s ICONS initiative – a new wave of must-read monthly series, prestige-format projects, and standalone events for the publisher’s biggest and most demanded heroes – is taking things way too far with the return of the world’s worst superhero team! That’s right – on December 20th, the Valiant Universe is about to get the adjective-worthy superheroes it deserves up in its business: QUANTUM AND WOODY! 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.
"So, since we've seen Quantum and Woody last, they've become as estranged as you can be when you're bound on the molecular level," writer Daniel Kibblesmith told Entertainment Weekly. "They're not on speaking terms – Woody shows up every morning, KLANGS, and drives off. But the crazy thing, at least for readers who know the characters, is that the fight that broke up Quantum and Woody was actually Eric's fault. He knew Woody's birth father was still alive, and kept it from him. So, we're all going to find out why, and the consequences of that brotherly betrayal."
