So Valiant has launched a spin off of Quantum and Woody that seems to be much more than it appears. Much like it’s protagonist.
Writer – James Asmus and Tom Fowler
Artist – Tom Fowler
Publisher – Valiant
Review by Jeremias de León
So much of this story are spoilers! But without spoilers the synopsis is that this issue delves into the origin of the Goat that Quantum and Woody met and took back with them near the start of that series run.
These origins that revealed are perhaps some of the funniest I’ve ever read. There were definitely times where I laughed out loud and awkwardly disturbed the people around me. But, it isn’t just laughs you actually come to feel for the goat. Those feelings grow to a high point at the end of the issue.
Tom Fowler comes back and his work still looks great as he goes back to drawing the Goat and the boys. Especially noteworthy is the way he conveys effects like fire and explosions.
Goat is a winner. With a story that is more well thought out than the cover would have you believe and lots of hilarious moments there is no way this can’t be recommended. There’s drama, there’s action and there’s tons of comedy I give Goat # 0 a 9.5 out of 10.
