Review by Jeremias de Leon

Story

Spoiler free summary we see that Quantum and Woody’s powers have been changed and they need to re-create the experiment that gave them their powers in the first place. They also seem to be dealing with G.A.T.E and Capshaw usually known for dealing with X-O Manowar. There’s also this villain “Informercial” that seems to be wrecking the universe that they need to deal with.

In short this issue is like the “boss battle” in a video game. Everything is coming together for one big last fight and what’s truly interesting is what the aftermath is going to be.

Art

The art isn’t terrible, far from it. It doesn’t seem to hold my eye as some other Valiant comics do but I’m not going to fault it for that. It’s more like I’m not used to seeing this type of art style so often. You the reader, might find it more pleasing than I did. But again, I didn’t think it was bad.

Verdict

Quantum and Woody is known for being a funny comic with lots of references and pokes at pop culture. This definitely keeps up that tradition. There were parts that made me legitimately laugh out loud. So this is definitely a true Quantum and Woody book.

It didn’t feel like the stakes were all too high despite what the characters were saying. Maybe a bit more than a glimpse at the world at large would have driven that home a bit better. All in all this is an enjoyable read, Quantum and Woody # 11 gets an 8.5 out of 10.
