Straight Forward Reviews: Quantum and Woody # 5

Quantum and Woody seem to have started to get into their life again after the crazy events of the past 4 issues. But of course, there just has to be something that is going to make their lives harder.

Writer - James Asmus

Artist - Ming Doyle

Publisher - Valiant

Review by Jeremias de Leon


The duo have a full house after the events of the last issue and they are trying to figure out what to do with their living situation now. Which includes hosting a clone and a mysterious goat. Or at least Quantum is trying to figure things out.

Without spoilers I'll say that the two split ways and both go through some hijinks involving a building that seems to be a haven for evildoers. There's also plenty of commentary on comic books during these hijinks.

What you really see in this issue isn't so much action but character development for both Quantum and Woody, and their dialog like the previous issues is fantastic.


The artist changed in this issue and it's definitely noticable. Not in a bad way at all, definitely different though. The previous issue was stylized and more modern looking, this time the art looks like a throwback to older comics which is a nice touch. Especially with the dialog about comic books, the retro looking art seems to really bring this issue together.


This issue brings the funny and couples it with nice character development and commentary on comic books and current issues. It's nothing but entertaining and I wholeheartedly give this issue a 9 out of 10. Pick it up.
