When it comes to "cult followings" in comics, few cancelled series in recent years can match the level of attention, discussion and love Christopher Priest and Mark Bright's Quantum And Woody has engendered. Originally launched in 1997 under the auspices of Acclaim Comics, the series ran for an initial 17 issues, then briefly returned after a year off for five more issues, before seemingly shutting down for good.
Fast forward to 2013, when Valiant Comics announced a new Quantum and Woody ongoing series. Noticeably absent in the news, however, were creators Priest and Bright, replaced by James Asmus and Tom Fowler. But it turns out the two aren't quite done with the series yet, as today at New York Comic Con Valiant announced that Priest and Bright will reunite forQ2: The Return Of Quantum And Woody, a five issue miniseries set 20 years after the end of the original run, in that series' continuity. ComicsAlliance had the opportunity to talk to Priest and Bright, as well as editor Alejandro Arbona, about their return to Quantum And Woody, and what they've both been up to in recent years.
After a blockbuster video game that thoroughly explored Arkham Asylum and a follow-up set in a section of Gotham City that featured every significant landmark from Crime Alley to Ace Chemicals, you might be wondering where they could go next. This week, we found out, when Batman:Arkham Origins producer Guillaume Voghel revealed that they wouldn't just be taking Batman back to the past, they'd be packing him up and sending him off to Ninja School.
Well, the term they used was "a monastery in Asia" and not "ninja school," but if you'd rather think of shadowy intrigue and instruction on poisonous darts than an owl bringing young Bruce Wayne his acceptance letter to Kirigi's School of Ninjacraft and Ninjary, that's your problem.
As of this morning speculation has turned into reality, as the publisher has revealed that a new Quantum and Woody series, written by James Asmus with art by Tom Fowler and Jordie Bellaire, will debut this summer with a cover by Ryan Sook and a variant cover by Marcos Martín. And, to the relief of many, Valiant has already promised there will be a goat.
