Après The One Percent et Punk Mumbo, l’éditeur Valiant continuera sa percée “one-shot” en décembre avec un numéro spécial de Quantum & Woody où l’auteur James Asmus sera aidé par le scénariste Tim Siedell et le dessinateur Pere Perez.
Dans ce numéro-double, Woody fera équipe avec une version alternative de lui-même pour sauver le Multiverse (indépendamment d’eux-même, bien entendu).
[quote]VALIANT-SIZED QUANTUM AND WOODY
Valiant Entertainment has announced a December release for Valiant-Sized Quantum and Woody #1.
The 40-page book is written by Tim Siedell and James Asmus, with art by Pere Perez.
“When an asteroid with a 50-50 chance of hitting Earth is spotted hurtling toward the planet, the unlikely super-team of Quantum and Woody are drafted onto the international team of specialists tasked with stopping it! But when the duo inadvertently cause a training exercise to go horribly wrong, they manage to doom the entire planet along with the only team capable of saving it. With few options and less time, Woody decides to ditch our world and escape into another through a secret space-time rift created by his arch-nemesis – old timey clone-Frankenstein-robot Thomas Edison! (No…you shouldn’t ask.) Our Woody’s betrayal, however, leaves the door to our dimension open to THEIR counter-Woody and his own counter-asteroidâ€¦leaving two worlds in the balance as two Woodys cut a reckless rampage through the multiverse! (Yes…it’s complicated.)”
“A giant Earth-crushing asteroid is heading this way, forcing an uneasy alliance of international and interpersonal foes to put aside differences and work together to save mankind,” Siedell said. “Quantum and Woody join forces with Edison, as well as a North Korean superhero and a rabidly anti-Semitic, but otherwise genius, nuclear scientist. This is Earth’s hastily-assembled Dream Team (or Nightmare Team, depending on how you look at it). It’s a story so big it can’t be contained on one Earth.”
The book features covers by Chip Zdarsky and Mike Hawthorne, along with a partially completed “Draw Your Own ‘Blank’ Cover” on virgin board stock by Perez. [/quote]
