[quote=“Christopher Priest”]I never really considered QUANTUM & WOODY a comedic book, or a funny book. I never thought of it as a satire. In fact, I think certainly with the early issues, there wasn’t really a lot to even suggest that it was even something like the Blue Devil, or one of these funny superhero books or satirical superhero books. It’s a buddy book, certainly. It’s a buddy action adventure, along the lines of something like Lethal Weapon, but I never thought we were spoofing or satiring. I just think that one of the characters obviously is someone who is prone to point out the little absurdities of being a superhero.

Lots of things that go on in mainstream superhero comics are just stupid. They just show up on the page and no one makes any mention of it. Well, Woody is going to mention it. If he sees something stupid, he’s definitely going to mention it. To that end, what we’re doing now with the new Valiant series is certainly a continuation of that theme and that flavor. But if people are — I just want to lower that expectation and not present Quantum and Woody as something that’s supposed to be comedy. It has comedic moments but it’s an action adventure buddy book. Not a satirical project at all.[/quote]

Les crayonnés sont magnifiques.

Y’a un petit côté Walt Simonson, non ? Surprenant.

Le premier numéro sortira en octobre 2014, soit un an exactement après l’annonce de Valiant. Le même mois, l’éditeur publiera “The Complete Quantum and Woody Omnibus” (voir plus bas). Il s’agit d’un recueil de 624 pages collectant “Quantum and Woody” #0-21 et #32, “The Goat: H.A.E.D.U.S.” #1, “X-O Manowar” #16 et la courte histoire inédite “Thunk” pour le prix de 99,99$. Ce pavé est le fruit du travail du scénariste Christopher Priest et du dessinateur M.D. Bright, mais aussi du co-scénariste Bryan Augustine (Out There) et des artistes Charlie Adlard, Keith Giffen, Oscar Jimenez, Kevin Kobasick et Bart Sears.
