Lots of Answers in the Quantum & Woody #4 Review
Quantum & Woody #4
Writer: Christopher Hastings
Artist: Ryan Browne
The Kammerjager Clan, the villains from issue one that attacked the senate, come back in the series finale to end Quantum & Woody. Quantum is a ghost, separated from his quantum band. His band? A new sidekick finds it and puts it on. And where exactly are those messages that Woody gets that predict the future coming from? All that is answered in this issue.
Christopher Hastings has written a really memorable and funny Quantum & Woody series and this issue was no different in terms of the quality of the previous issues. These guys tend to always have some rather humorous adventures but I think Hastings really knocked it out of the park and understood the characters. The series format has been mostly focused on these single-issue stories, which has been pretty fantastic. I have enjoyed the villains quite a bit and think they have been fairly clever creations. and I do hope that we see them return. Overall, high scores for the writing.
I’ve liked Ryan Browne’s art on Quantum & Woody, but something about it just didn’t work all the way for me on this last issue. It just seemed a bit too busy for me. However, that doesn’t mean the art was bad. Maybe it was that this issue came out right as publishers were getting ready to stop due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Browne is an artist that I normally enjoy quite a lot so I’m sure it’s just a fluke.
I do wish that Valiant Entertainment could figure out a way to keep Q & W going as an ongoing. Quantum & Woody are such unique characters and I feel there’s always room for the type of super heroics that are different from what all the other publishers are putting out. Hastings and Browne were a good fit for the characters and it would be good to see the creative team return if and when Quantum & Woody return.
